From my last trip to my dermatologist, she has been telling me that my scars would not go away that fast because I could not commit to visit her every three weeks for frequent cleaning ( since my open pores are just alot ), so after my monthly cleaning – diamond peeling session, she whipped up a sample for me to try – of MaMa Lotion.
This remarkable gel-lotion is the ultimate agent for those wanting to get more out of their anti-aging routines. This 20% AHA formulation contains 10% mandelic acid and 10% malic acid with a 2.5 ph. Because of the protective and moisturizing qualities of malic acid, this lotion takes about 10-15 minutes to fully sink into the skin. A bit sticky at first, the MaMa lotion will dry to an ultra smooth, glowing finish that will draw compliments throughout the day. Excellent for evening out pigmentation or softening feet and elbows as well.
My dermatologist tells me that this is very good because as it lets your skin microexfoliate ( exfoliate in a very microscopic level ) continuously, it prevents buildup of dirt and dull skin cells on the skin, therefore, it prevents breakouts or acne, which is a product of built up dull skin cells. She handed me a small sample, which I excitedly took home, and started using after 4 days from my diamond peel session.
So, okay, I’m a very stubborn girl and I used it every night instead of every other night. I was curious for the results, because my skin needed major peeling, but I just never had the time to commit to a decent peeling session to get rid of my scars once and for all. With the 20% AHA formulation ( alpha hydroxic acids ) with 10% Mandelic Acid, which is used in acne peels, and 10% Malic Acid, that also has moisturizing and protective qualities. This has the highest AHA level being sold in the market. Nothing to be scared of, because AHA is usually just an acid that helps exfoliate and give way to new skin. Aside from preventing acne, it also helps in anti-aging as it continuously micropeels to give way to fresh, glowing skin. Sunblock is strongly recommended for those who would want to use this during daytime.
Well, it’s been a week now, and like stubborn me who used this every night, I definitely did not micropeel. I macro-peeled. The peeling was very noticeable, as I struggled not to peel off the “hanging skin” on my face. It’s an absolute no-no to peel those because they may cause premature hyperpigmentation, so it really helps avoiding the mirror at certain times! I really appreciated that well, my skin was really peeling, and my skin was not as slick oily as before ( but still oily ), and I just left my skin alone, spraying a generous amount of MAC Charged Water on top of my foundation to keep the peeling skin subdued and less noticeable.
I’m waiting for my big sized bottle of MaMa Lotion from my friend who got it for me, but I had the absolute shock of my life this weekend, as I went to a photoshoot, absolutely haggard and tired ( from the previous night’s work ), as Jamie greets me hello and compliments my skin. The next day, it was also a photoshoot day, and as Brigitte introduced me to the model she was doing makeup for, the model tells me how she loves my skin. I mean seriously, it was intensely shocking because I don’t really pride myself to have good skin – that’s my absolute waterloo, and I admit that. I wish I could have taken care of my skin during younger days ( that’s why I nag in this blog that skin care is everything ) because I have accumulated a few scars that are so hard to get rid of, but well, maybe this MaMa Lotion can momentarily give some relief and minor fixing to my skin!
I would recommend this to those who have oily, acne prone skin, those who have melasma, freckles, acne scars, or wrinkles. I am so using this! I love it! I’d update in a month for results. Stay tuned!
