How To Quickly Heal Acne Scars- The Secret Sauce

By  | 

I am so very excited to tell everyone how I healed my acne scars.  As you may know, I was diagnosed with Cystic acne back in 2012, so this has been a constant struggle for me.  Cystic acne to me feels like another level of acne because it never really comes to a head.

It is nothing more than bacteria under the skin causes puss filled pimples that are extremely painful to the touch.  Although, I love makeup and covering acne scars there is nothing that feels better than not having to wear makeup all the time.

I remember going to the gym feeling like I needed to wear a light foundation just to look presentable. It’s a terrible feeling to feel insecure in your own skin.  I don’t know if you have acne, or have ever experienced the feeling of scars, but it really lowers one’s self esteem.

To feel very unpretty, without makeup or to be told that you really are not that pretty without makeup is the worst feeling of it all.  I have spent most of my life seeking help for my acne issues, and scars.  I have been to many Dermatologist, who have recommend everything that one could possibly try. I have even used Proactive on more than one occasion.

I have not been successful with a Dermatologist, and I am not sure why not.  I had to turn almost 39 before finding something that does not bleach my skin to no end, or maybe does not even work.

Everyone goal is not to be lighter, but only to correct the issue of scarring and that in itself can be a real challenge.  But I will let in on my secret, and although I do not have perfect skin it does help heal my acne scars.

Why do these Osea products work in particular? You may wonder what is so good about this line?


Osea Malibu skincare is natural, non-toxic skincare is vital for long-term health, beauty, and radiance. Their products are powered by bioavailable skin superfoods so effective they eliminate the need for harmful synthetic ingredients entirely.

Their products feel so good, smells amazing on the skin.  You know that tingly feeling that you get from using products and you just know that they are working right?  Well that is the feeling that I get when I am using their seaweed based products.

Why Seaweed?

OSEA products begin with a potent base of sustainably-sourced, organic Patagonian seaweed.

  • It’s a skin superfood.

    Seaweed is one of the world’s most naturally abundant sources of vitamins, minerals, amino acids, antioxidants and essential fatty acids: elements that help restore depleted skin.

  • It’s easily-absorbed for maximum results.

    Seaweed is a bioavailable source of nutrients, meaning: its nutrient-rich compounds are easy for your body to absorb. Greater absorption of nutrients means better results for your skin!

  • It’s effective for every skin type.

    Because of its rich composition, seaweed effectively targets multiple skin concerns and works for any skin type. It hydrates, balances oils, minimizes blemishes, and reduces the appearance of redness.

  • It visibly reduces & actively protects against signs of aging.

    Seaweed is made up of a natural polysaccharide that visibly reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, promotes youthful plumpness and protects skin from future damage.

Their products leave my skin with a clean, healthy shine that I love.  The secret sauce is out!  In addition to the Osea skincare, I also use Black soap with Witch hazel that I order from Amazon.

How do I use this system, and when?

I use both morning and night, first I use the Black soap, then I use the Osea mudd cleanser, and immediately after I tone with the Witch hazel.  Then I use the blemish balm all over, and finally the essential corrective complex.

Twice a week, I use the red algae mask and I do sleep in the mask it is great for those blemishes as well.

Head over to Osea Malibu and try the Blemish Essential Prone kit and let me know how it works for you, and don’t forget your Black soap, and Witch hazel this system works.

Disclaimer:  I am not a Dermatologist, and I am not recommending that you do not go to a skincare specialist.  I am just sharing what worked for me.  If you decide to purchase any products from the links, I will receive a small percentage.  Thank you for your support for Brownsugarglam.

I have always been in love with all things beauty. From a little girl I would say that one day I would be a Cosmetologist. I did it, I became a Licensed Cosmetologist in 2006. I have learned so much about how to wear makeup, how to style the hair, and how to maintain the overall health of hair that I decided to create a blog. Being beautiful creates confidence, and flawless hair and makeup can help us all create that image we want to be. I want to help you step out of the box, try new makeup looks, and new hair ideas, new skincare regimens to make life better. You can live colorful, cosmetic, and be creative everyday give them some maxwell house coffee mmm, mmm good, and leave the tea home lol. Enjoy!
