Correct Your Complexion with Rx for Brown Skin

June is Acne Awareness Month and unfortunately, my skin seems to be "celebrating." For the past few months, my skin has been sprinkled with breakouts.  Seriously, my skin is starting to resemble a tween's instead of a 32-year-old's!

I'm not sure if it's the stress of potty-training a toddler (I recently accomplished that huge feat) or simply hormonal. Whatever the culprit, I've been giving Rx for Brown Skin's new acne products a go in hopes that they will halt my newfound skin horrors.

Founded by a BG dermatologist, Dr. Susan Taylor, the line speaks to our specific skin needs.

Rx for Brown Skin Clear Luminosity Hydrating Acne Lotion ($32.95) and Precise Clarity Acne Spot Treatment ($39.95) available at

So far, the Precise Clarity spot treatment has been successful at shrinking my zits overnight. The salicylic acid-based formula soaks up the gunk leaving behind a much more presentable pimple (if such a thing exists). Plus, once applied it gives a slight tingle, which makes me feel like it's really working! But, wait what's worse than unsightly blemishes? Dark spots aka hyper-pigmentation that's what. Luckily, the Clear Luminosity hydrating cne lotion tackles the post-pimple plight by evening skin tone.

If your skin seems to be taking you on a roller-coaster ride hop off and get some stability with this amazing BG brand.

Have you ever tried Rx for Brown Skin products?

I've never tried or heard of them. but i must tell you after 40 it's like starting all over skin started to do some weird thing recently - lots of bumps on my cheeks - i started exfoliating to cleanse better and that seems to have helped.
always an adventure!

@Nylse - I don't know what's going on, but I've never had any real acne issues until recently. I really think mine is stress-related, hormonal or BOTH! ahaha

I never had acne issues until I turned 29, I'm 32 now and I still have a few issues. The only thing that worked for me is differin gel. It is both hormonal and stress for me too. I may give this product a try especially for my hyper-pigmentation.
