Hi Acnemantra and Teju,
Need one advice from you. I don’t have any pimples/acne but i have left over scarring and hyperpigmentation marks plus some tan marks on my skin. my current regimen is
Morning – Sebamed Cleansing Foam
Evening – Sebamed Cleansing Foam and Triacneal (Alternate days)
Recently i bought Nivea advanced whitening with spf and baidhyanath rakht shodak. I started taking baidyanath rakht shodak once a day and Aloe veera juice and i got two pimples 🙁 in last week
I also have ahaglow with me. I use it 2-3 times in a week.
From last two days i started applying nivea advanced whitening with spf in morning before leaving and a little third pimple is coming. So i stopped applying nivea from third day. So morning i dont use anything other than sebamed cleansing foam. Looks like in morning nothing suits for me so i dont use anything other than face wash.
So my question is
1) should i use nivea on alternate days with triacneal during night time or should i stop nivea completely.
2) you remember we talked about neutrogena sunscreen. i am confused should i go for neutrogena one or bioderma spf 50
3) I wanted to order bioderma white objective serum (night version) for hyperpigmentation and sun damage/tan marks but i ordered nivea whitening so i kept this idea on hold.
Please let me know your views.
Hey Ashu, I think that Nivia is causing you pimples. Remember you told me that it doesn’t feel oily? (I used Ponds BB cream which also didn’t felt oily, and it broke me out. so just relating!)
Also, Baidyanath and Aloe vera juice might be working from inside to clear up your organs and skin. The pimples formed may be a result of clearing process. Continue using the Baidyanath Rakht Shodhak and Aloe Vera Juice for one more week . And I will say put a STAY ORDER on Nivia for men Advanced Whitening, at least till pimples reside.
if ur problem is just scars left from breakouts .. then do add up kaya pigmentation reducer gel in your regimen! n do apply sunscreen irrespective of whether you are indoors or outdoor.
check out for artistry range sunscreen as ur in the us they have very good reviews
Hi Ashu..It will be good idea to drop it and stick to Banana boat sunscreen itself..Thought Nivea does not have any major comedogenic ingredients,it does not seem to be suiting you..
So use as a body lotion and finish it off..
Dont add anything for scarring either,let the pimple situation get better..Until then Continue Triacneal with rest of the routine..
I am not sure about for Bioderma for you since Nivea broke you out..Banana boat or Clear face might be a safer bet..
Clear face has good reviews for acne prone skin..
Also put Bioderma serum on hold for few days..
Thank you Akshay, Cherry and Rajeev for your response. Very helpful ones.
Here comes my angel 🙂
Teju i was waiting for your reply.
Ok i will stop Nivea. But i dont wanted to go to banana boat sunscreen. It makes my skin dull and greasy.
I am not using any bioderma products now.
I think i will get my hand on clear face one …
Aww Arent you a Sweetie Pie,you are my favourite Mantra-ite ;)..
Sorry for the late reply..This week I got to attend many functions/weddings..:)

Your regimen seems to be ok but you have missed one important product from Kaya i.e. Kaya Skin Clinic Soothing Cleansing Gel or are you already using it?
@Suresh:He is US, most of the products are not accessible to him..
@Ashu:Good Ashu,you must have paid heavy price..Kaya not available on ebay right?
hi ashu my parents are also in us, in which city u r,my sis in newyork and parents are in oklahoma city
Thanks Suresh for your advice.
@Teju – yes dear it costed me 5k Rs for all these 3 products. I dont wanted to think much about which products i should buy, whether it will break me out or not, does it have any hidden comodogenic ingredient. Kaya and Lotus reviews are in front of us and many of our members are using it without any issues. so i can be confident now about the products i am using 🙂 🙂
It is not on ebay. I got it from persensual.com.
@Jassi – I am in charlotte. NC 🙂
