Sometimes our skin issues can’t be fixed with simple skincare products and we need to seek professional help. But we divas can be very busy at times and can not find the time to seek out the professional help we desperately need. This is why Curology will become your best friend! This is a subscription based product ($19 per month) that provides you with prescription skincare from a dermatologist in five minutes— all from the comfort of.. well wherever you decide to sign up! No trip to the doctor’s office required.
I have always struggled with hyper-pigmentation but other than that I had no other skin concerns. This all changed about a year ago when I started having minor breakouts and my skin became very textured. The texture of my skin was no longer smooth and I had these mini bumps, that didn’t look like acne and would not go away no matter what I used on my skin or how often I exfoliated. I was never truly satisfied with how my makeup turned out because my skin underneath the makeup was not at its best. I knew it was time to see a dermatologist but didn’t have the time to find one and go through with a consultation because of my work and school schedule. When I discovered Curology I thought it was the perfect solution to my problems.
The initial sign up for curology requires you to upload photos of your face so that the dermatologist can assess you skin, along with taking into consideration your concerns, in order to prescribe you the treatment that best fits your needs.These were my photos before starting the treatment showing my hyperpigmentation, minor breakouts and overall, a very dull complexion.
The Delivery was very quick, which I was really happy about this because I was very excited to try it. The medication came in a pump bottle that detailed information about what I was prescribed on the back of the bottle. My prescription was a mixture of three different medications.
Before receiving my order, my provider sent me a detailed message about my prescription and she messaged me twice during my month of trying the product to check in with me to see how things were going and I also had the option of direct messaging her if I had any questions or concerns.
2 Week Update: I started using one pump of the treatment morning and night after cleansing my face. Initially, I decided I would not use any other skin care product with the medication except my cleanser and my moisturizer. This photo was taken two weeks into the treatment. I oddly felt like my skin looked a lot better which was strange to me because it was only two weeks. A major difference I noticed was that my skin did not look as dull and my break outs seemed to be minimizing.
Week 3&4 :
During these weeks, I started using my skincare products again. I started using Bareminerals Active Cell Renewal right after cleansing , then applied Bareminerals Bare Haven moisturizer and last, the Curology treatment. I felt like my skin was at its worst! I felt like my skin looked worse than before. I was breaking out like crazy! I was so frustrated because I thought the product was working but now my skin was worse than when I started and I wasn’t sure what was going on.
The break outs cleared up but then my skin was very dry! I never had an issue with dry skin before, in fact I’m oily/combination skin type. Other than that, I felt like my hyperpigmentation was clearing up. My hyperpigmentation is very noticeable around my mouth area and I could tell that it was clearing up because the peach fuzz I have was becoming more apparent because the darkness was no longer hiding it.
Finally, results!! My skin feels and looks very smooth and soft. It does not look dull as it did before and the hyper-pigmentation has faded a lot especially on the right side of my face.
The dryness I was experiencing before stopped and now my makeup looks flawless!
Although it took some time to see results, I am very happy with the experience I had with Curology.
This photo was taken with an HD camera, was unedited and I’m wearing no makeup— and yet I’m still very proud to show off my skin.
All these results without stepping into a doctor’s office— CUROLOGY IS DIVA APPROVED!
See you soon divas!
