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.
So, you want a lighter skin. Maybe because of Hyperpigmentation, maybe because this is your mood today. Either way, there are some simple things you can do at home before trying other treatments.
Skin whitening Absolute no nos
Let’s say it loud and clear, sun may be good for your bones, for your mood for your veggie garden and for many more things but it is horrible for your skin. Sun causes wrinkles, hyperpigmentation and of course tan. That’s ok if you want it but if you want a lighter skin Sun is not your friend. If you have to be in the sun – long sleeves, Wide hat and apply sunscreen every 2 hours. Don’t forget!
A second no no are chemical bleaches. Many skin whitening products contain harsh chemicals. With harsh I mean really harsh. Not just the usual stuff you can find in commercial cosmetics but harsh as Mercury, Hydroquinone and corticosteroids. This things are illegal in many countries. It goes without saying you shouldn’t use your toilet bleach for this matter.
Basic Skin Whitening maintenance
You probably don’t want your skin only to be whiter but also smooth with no blackheads, white heads or redheads. So, what are the important things to do?
Gentle exfoliation – Gentle is the important word here. Hard exfoliation in the long run is not good for anyone. I like ground oatmeal or a good, soft shaving brush (without the shaving gel!). See what works best for you, usually 1-2 times a week is enough.Moisturize – Dry skin looks darker so be sure to keep your skin moisturized. Find yourself a good moisturizer and apply it after your morning cleansing.
Skin whitening home remedies
Diluted lemon juice – Most skins will not tolerate 100% lemon juice – too acidic. You can mix it with some olive oil for dry skin, some clay for oily skin or milk for regular skin.
Milk or yogurt – Yogurt is actually better but it’s a lot easier to just put some milk on a cotton ball and apply it to your face? Leave on for 10 minutes, wash off and dry.
