Hi All,

I have just bought Ultraceuticals Ultra Sheer Vitamin C Cream (not sure if that's it's exact name). It does seem to be brightening my skin.

I still have some discolouration and scars. I was thinking of trying the Loreal Glycolic Peel kit. (I know it's not high strength, but budget won't allow anything else right now).

If I buy this peel, when do I use the Vitamin C? Do I use the peel thingy at night and then use the Vitamin C in the morning?

At the moment the only mask I'm using is the Aspirin mask mixed with Natural Yoghurt.

I have thought of trying to make my own version of the pumpkin mask with mashed pumpkin, lemon juice and yoghurt and see how that goes.

Just would like some experienced opinions. Hoping my scarring will fade and my pores might get a bit smaller again.

I've used the L'Oreal glycolic kit. It's nice, but by no means are you going to see dramatic results. I notice that after using it my skin just looks better in some sort of vague, undefinable way.

There are daily application glycolic products out there that would probably help you see more results...and also there are stronger glycolic peels you can buy over the Internet. I'll let others handle this, though...I'm no expert and a lot of people here seem to know what they're talking about.

i have used the lancome peel kit and used my vit. C serum afterwards. I have oa vit. C serum for the morning and one for the evening, so i use them everyday. it doesn't make too much of a difference when you use it as long as you do use it. just fit it into your regime which ever way it is most suitable for you
