How and why did I create my hyperpigmentation Skin care
I always say, look at my products and know who I am. I never developed any soap or cream that I didn’t really need for myself or for my family. My first products were my hyperpigmentation Skin care. They were developed originally only for myself after quite a long journey. Here you can listen to my story.
Very Long ago, I was a teenager and looking back it was definitely one of the worst periods of my life. I had pimples all over my face and tried to get rid of them in any possible way. I remember alcohol (topically), hyprogen peroxide. I went to a cosmetician, some of them actually. Spent a lot of money on it. Tried also some natural masks as egg yolk mask after cleaning my face with some vodka. This really helped but only temporarily and I never had the passion to do it very often. And, of course hyperpigmentation skin care such as Alpha hydroxy acid and treyinoin prescribed by my dermatologist. Didn’t see much results except that my face became red. I think it’s because I couldn’t stay away from the sun enough. Bag girl! Now, when I think of it it’s funny, bcause conventional medicine uses the same chemicals for acne and hyperpigmentation skin care and these chemicals hadn’t change for more than 20 years.
Finally I found the solution. I started to take hormonal treatment with a doctor prescription. This really worked. Now I think I may have worked on my hormones naturally with plants and nutrition but then it was good enough. But the minute I stopped taking those pills the pimples came back again just as before. Meanwhile I started studying pharmacy and decided to quit medicines as much as I can, I was looking for an onoter way to treat my skin problems.
Luckily at the same time I made as a part of my study Geranium cream that helped heaps for my acne. I was amazed by the power of plants. Couldn’t believe it actually works. And it’s all natural. I used one jar and the acne was gone. Frankly, now I’m not sure. It may be that finally at 25 I finished my teenage years and my hormones were finally stabilized. At the time, anyway I was sure it’s the cream.
OK, acne was gone but I was left with severe Hyperpigmentation. At least now I knew you can do miracles with plants. I didn’t just believe it, I really knew. Hope you understand the difference. So I started reading and studying anything I could about hyperpigmentation natural treatments. Made many experiments, until I finally succeeded making something that works. Since then I improved it a lot untill I had my own, personal hyperpigmentation skin care.
Tretinoin – Tried it myself and any word is true. Might be effective to some level. On the other hand makes your skin terribly sensitive to sun damage. Of course you are told to stay away from the sun but in warm countries you can not do it good enough even if you try. If you live in Russia that might be ok but there they almost don’t have hyperpigmentation problems so it’s catch 22.
Hydroquinone – The bad boy of skin bleach agents. Was banned in Europe for ages. Considered now OK in low concentration – 2-4%. The problem is that it’s not effective enough for darker skin colors So it is sometimes mixed with chemicals or is used in higher concentrations. This is suspected as carcinogenic. I don’t trust this stuff still, used it maybe 20 years ago, made my skin feel awkward.
To be continued, hopefully tomorrow, until then, please share your experience if you are old enough to use any of these two products.
