In life, accidents happen and sometimes shit hits the fan. It could be at work, at home or after a skin treatment. For me, it was after a skin treatment – the laser was too harsh on my skin and I had a small spot on my nose as a reminder to not think that I know better all the time; because I don’t.
I picked this up at the store as soon as I realized the redness was not going to subside in hours; it had started flaking and was looking a tad inflamed. I applied this and hoped for the best. This turned out to be a bit of a skin saver.
After the first day, the burnt spot decreased in size and redness while looking less visible. The flaking had stopped and the skin around it looked less irritated. After 5 days and 3 applications daily, no one could tell or notice I recently had an abused spot.
