Skin Care Questions and Answers About hyper-pigmentation
I have hyperpigmentation, especially on my forehead. Since Im new to the products and have oily skin, what products should I use to treat and correct this situtation?...Read Response (asked by Joseph T. of Brooklyn, NY)
If you have oily skin with hyper-pigmentation, the first thing I would recommend using is the Oil Free Moisturizer (SPF-17) to protect the skin from further discoloration. Use the Botanical Facial Gel twice daily to cleanse skin and control oil. I would also suggest the Glycolic Foaming Cleanser to deep clean and exfoliate surface dead skin to even out discoloration. Lastly, the Whitening Mask may be used 2-3 times a week for 5-7 minutes to help brighen and even out skin tone. With regular and consistent use, your skin should feel less oily and in time more even toned, especially on your forehead.
What is best to use to help fade sun spots on top of cheeks, top lip and a few minor dark spots left from old blemishes? I do not have breakouts anymore, just dark marks left?...Read Response (asked by Blair T. of Unknown)
The best products to help fade sun spots always begin with using at least a moderate SPF of 15 or higher to protect your skin from further discoloration. Since the air has been slightly colder and you are no longer breaking out, I would recommend the Collagen Moisturizer (SPF-15) for daily moisture and sun protection. For a moisturizer with a higher SPF choice, use the Suncare (SPF-30) moisturizer daily for maximum sun protection. Use the Glycolic Foaming Cleanser 2-3 times a week at night only to gently exfoliate and deep clean skin to promote cell turnover to even out the dark spots. Alternate with the Almond and Honey Face Scrub 2-3 times a week to mildly slough off surface dull skin to soften skin and improve skins texture. Lastly, the Whitening Mask should be used 2-3 times a week for 5-10 minutes to brighten and even out skin tone. Consistent use will help to discourage any hyper-pigmentation from further discoloration.
