Maybe it's the sin of vanity that's inside of me but how far have you ever thought of going when it comes to treating your skin due to acne problems, I've thought about laser acne treatment?
I've documented several times that I suffer from pigmentation, any time I see a spot appear on my face, I dread the aftermath because it doesn't matter what I do, I end up with a dark mark when it goes down. I've often thought about getting a more intense acne treatment such as peels. Thankfully I don't get things such as ice pick scars but a lot of people do and it can be a result of the body doing what it does best and naturally repairing the wound and with the excess of collagen build up, it may stay in place permanently creating the scar we see that creates the pits in the skin.
So what causes hyperpigmentation, if you have more melanin in your skin, pigmentation is more likely to occur more. The actual word for it is Post Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation. It happens when a wound, spot or rash that has caused skin inflammation triggers the skin to produce too much melanin. The excess melanin discolours and darkens the area after the area has healed.
There are ways to deal with these, I know SK:N clinics have acne treatment can help these issues with a course of 1-6 treatments, I've often wanted to get a skin peel, get the even skin tone quicker than having to wait at least 6-9 months for my skin to completely even out using milder drug store products - I'm too impatient and I have read peoples previously recommending it and read through articles.
Has anyone had any sort of acne laser treatment before?

( image source )Tags can be fun and a nice way to break up blogging, making it just care free & fun. I was tagged by Amy ♥ and it's taken me a few days lol but I have done it.
1. What was the first blog you ever came across?
Oh gosh, I'm not sure - I know in the early days I did read Tina Marie, J. Rose, XPINKX and Lady L. Also Fafinettex3 inspired me to start blogging. Bundle them all together!
2. Favourite blog reads.
Fashionicide // Late Night Nonsense // A Little Boat Sailing // All That Slap // The Beauty Milk // Nerd about Town // Gymbags & Gladrags // Fresh Lengths // Subject Beauty // Worship Blues // Pink and Leopard Prints // The Sunday Girl // EpiphannieA // Whatsherfacewonders
3. Best blogging friend.
Just one? Who has one best anything these days. I think me and Halima are quite similar and plus we eat each others ear off on the phone. (LimaMonroexo)
4. Name a blog that enables your purchases.
Never just one, blogs are full on enablers each time you click on one, I look forward to LatinoLook, as she does pick some lovely items to share and they seem to always suit her to a T. Sweet Jelly Bean has some picks, a mix between eastern and western that make me want to try more. The Black Pearl Blog - why! Mouldy Fruit too she can be quite the enabler.
5. Five blogs everyone should be reading.
Wallace Yolicia, The Guilty Girl, Worshipblues, Lady Liquor Vintage & Pretty in Pink
6. Your favourite way to read blogs.
Preferably nude in bed...no? Mainly I use Bloglovin', it's a lot more accessible, I rarely look on my dashboard if honest & as pointed out by Amy, GFC is definitely losing it's popularity, due to the fact people thought it was going to die out when Google Reader was killed. Bloglovin' has the app, so when your on the go, it's helpful to read if your waiting around, on a break etc. As there isn't a limit to how much you can follow, unlike GFC it can get a little hectic but at least you can find your favourite blog if you want a quick update.
7. Bloggers that inspire you.
I think nearly every blog I come across serves as inspiration. I couldn't possibly pick a handful that solely do that.
8. Favourite blog design/look.
I do prefer, clean blogs. Minimal (looks at own & laughs), white, clear photos and informational text. Late Night Nonsense & Tiny Paint Pot are good examples.
9. What is your favourite thing about blogging?
That it is a community that when done correctly can be more helpful and real than a magazine. If your lucky enough to come across a blog that expresses that everything she/he is sharing is more than 100% honest, then ride with that blog(ger). People turned to blogs cos they were fed up of the bull magazines were feeding them.
10. Name a blogger you would most like to see write a book in the future!
Rani // whatsherfacewonders - Have you seen her tweets?
SO I tag all y'all involved in this post & you who are reading it, sayonara
