Summer has finally come to a close and it’s time to un-do all the damage that barbeques, pool parties and beach-side vacations have done.
Whether it’s due to the sun, or a hormonal fluctuation (pregnancy, menopause, or some medications) hyper pigmentation shows up as a response to trauma, leaving skin tone dappled with darker spots or patches. These products employ NEW technology to prevent future spots from forming too.
Our Darphin rep, Shawn, says Melaperfect works by minimizing clusters of melanin (the molecule that produces color in the skin) into ultra-thin particles, reducing visibility. It also exfoliates to provide skin with luminosity and an even texture. Then antioxidants prevent recurrence of dark spots from forming. Melaperfect can be used in conjunction with other serums like Arovita C, Hydraskin, Stimulskin Plus, or Predermine. If you do this, use it AFTER your serum, but BEFORE your cream! According to their clinical trials, after 8 weeks, dark spots were reduced by 50%.
Our Natura Bisse rep, Scott, says Diamond White works by using an ingredient that enters the nucleus (center of the cell) to regulate (and minimize) production of melanin directly at it’s source. This product also exfoliates and provides the skin with antioxidants. Most importantly, it claims not to increase future photo-sensitivity. Diamond White should NOT be layered with other serums. Use it like any other serum before a moisturizer and/or sunscreen. If you would like to continue using another serum, try using it in the AM, and Diamond White in the PM. Cure Pure Serum or C+C complex are great choices.
The benefits of both of these products can be accelerated by also using a deeper exfoliating treatment 1-2x weekly; this helps the serums penetrate deeper and more quickly-bringing you results sooner. One of our favorites is Natura Bisse Glyco Extreme Peel: 1 fl oz/ 30 ml $245. The cost of these products can be steep, yes–but it’s far cheaper than a series of peels or laser treatments to treat the same problem. Plus, we will happily give you samples of any of these products if you would like to try them before purchasing!
