“It’s kinda expensive,” continued. “And hurts like sh*t. Ur face micro scabs… the scabs fall off gradually… over a period of like 7 days. And then a new layer of skin is revealed… your face stays swollen for like another week. It’s all so worth it tho lol.”

She also shared her beauty regimen between laser treatments —  including birth control —  to combat any skin issues.

“I keep up the results w/ Alastin skin care, iS Clinical serums, Cerave wash, Lancer scrub and Circcell Aboserum. Also I take collagen pills, drink kangen water, apple cider vinegar and take Super Food by Dr Shulze’s daily. I used to have cystic acne due to ovarian cyst. The b.c. helps w/ that.”
