No one likes scars on their money maker! Absolutely no one. Acne scars, war wounds, bumps and bruises can make you feel insecure about your appearance. I may not be built with a model’s physique but I was blessed with pretty clear skin. So imagine how distraught I was when I woke up to a discoloration directly across my forehead!
How did this happen… lemme tell you. A wig. Yassss. A wig. Wearing a wig as a “protective style” has its benefits. Wigs, units, braids, weaves… the options are endless! They allow your hair to rest from consuming daily maintenance, the heat of flat ions, opposing the weather, over styling and manipulation. Wigs also can be a protective barrier during a regrowth period after loss of hair, trauma, or damage.
I chose to wear a wig after cutting my hair twice last year and had decided I wanted to grow it back. There is that awkward growth period when it’s not long enough AND too short to do anything “stylish” with it. I THOUGHT I would try a wig. But it was the wig that tried me! My head was too small for the unit I bought. Even with the comb and the elastic bands, it kept sliding off, forwards and backwards. Huneee, it was a pain. The only way I could get it to stay on and feel secure was to pull it down over my big ol’ 5-head, thus leaving a mark….A vertical line DIRECTLY ACROSS MY HEAD. Literally, a straight line, tho. Trust, if it can happen, it happens to me!
My first thought, “whatisummgon’do!!?”I reached for my sample of Richard’s Remedy. It’s a multi-purpose topical cream that works with your body as your body heals itself. The tri-fold brochure that came with it claims to address:
So what is Richard’s Remedy and does it work? Hunneee, do you see this face? Clear! Look at the fabulous-ness that is me. You bettah catch it hunnnee! Absolutely flaw-less. The mark is gone! After a consistent regiment of a lemon juice/baking soda facial scrub to remove the dead skin, application of Richard’s Remedy twice daily, and strictly water for 90 days (because to quote beauty blogger and YouTuber, Marra Green aka J. Joelle, “If you want clear skin, DRINK WATER. If you want long hair, DRINK WATER. If you want good grades, DRINK WATER. If you want to find a man, girl, DRINK some WATER!”
Exfoliate. Apply Richard’s Remedy. Drink lots of water. Repeat. It really was that simple!
(Me. On a Wash Day. In Natural Light. NO Make-up. No Scar. No Eyebrows... Lawd Help Me.)
Richard’s Remedy is a heavy cream with a thick consistency. Its core ingredients are Aloe Vera Oil, Black Seed Oil, Bee Wax, Castor Oil, Cocoa Butter, Dandelion Oil, Grape Seed Oil, Jojoba Oil, Moringa Oil, Vegetable Glycerin, Vitamin E Oil, and Essential Oils. Each of these oils have varying benefits and attributes. Click each one to learn more about them before you try the product for yourself.
When I applied the ceam, I didn’t feel it being absorbed into my skin. I felt like I had a greasy film sitting on my face. During the 90 day trial, I did manage to fall ill with what I thought was just a cold which turned out to be bronchitis and the flu. The medications I has been prescribed sucked the moisture out of my face and left it feeling completely dry.
Richard’s Remedy immediately replenished, rehydrated, and revived my skin. My skin tone is beginning to even out around my eyes and mouth – the most common places for hyperpigmentation. Richard's Remedy provides all of the skin enriching benefits without any parabens, sulfates, or phthalates – harsh chemicals that are used in bath and body products to prevent bacteria and create “foam and bubbles” but can irritate skin and have been linked to impaired hair growth.
The free sample was less than an ounce which is more than enough because a little goes a very long way. It took roughly 6-8 weeks before I noticed the scar was starting to fade. It was completely gone in 90 days or just a little over 12 weeks. So what are you waiting for, try Richard’s Remedy and share your experience in the comments below!
