Okay so I've shared some tips on how to fade dark spots caused by pimples before, but most people weren't even aware because I didn't direct the tips to that area of concern. So I'm doing it again and I want you to help me share this if it crosses your TL. #skinherball

About the Rice water thing, it can be used to cleanse your skin to lighten dark spots and hyper pigmentation. It's my own experiment, and since the first time I shared it, a lot of positive reviews have flown in — I know you have seen most.

[So please re-tweet so others can see]
You can make rice water by soaking rice in water. let it soak for at least 4hrs before pressing the rice and straining it through the sieve. Finally, refrigerate the rice water.

Your rice can be cooked and eaten if you wish. So don't be sacred of losing that life saving grain.
Put a small amount of rice water on a cotton ball and gently smooth over your face and neck as a toner. To clean with it, massage it into your skin. Rinse if desired. then be sure to Moisturize and apply sunscreen during the day.

"ACNE KELOIDALIS NUCHAE, also known as keloidal folliculitis or nuchal keloidal acne, is a chronic skin condition characterized by inflamed bumps and scars on the back of the neck." #skinherball

Let's see more:#thread

[Don't scroll past without re-tweeting please]
You probably might have this skin disorder or you know someone who does. This would interest you.

Although, acne keloidalis nuchae isn't at all related to common acne, but because it appears in small acne-like bumps of inflamed hair follicles on the back of the neck.
Without treatment, this can result to large scars( keloids.)

It's not common in women, so this thread is literally addressing our brothers and father's.

And it is most commonly found in young adult men of African descent.
