Acne and Dark Spots on Dark Skin
The most important thing to remember about skincare is balance. While we want to give you potent products to get you clear, we don’t do it at the cost of your skin’s health and happiness. Hyperpigmentation is not only caused by breakouts, it can also be a side effect from using products that are much too drying and irritating.
Things don’t always have to be at maximum strength to be effective. Clear skin can be attained without frying your face!
Many users of other acne treatment systems may find that the products can be too much for their skin to handle. For those who are more prone to hyperpigment, these systems can leave behind more damage than good.
When it comes to preventing hyperpigmentation, moisture is very important. Many of you may not use moisturizers at all. Do you feel as though you’re too oily? That you may be suffocating your acne? Or making it worse? All this could not be further from the truth! Yes you must be careful of pore clogging ingredients, but Face Reality moisturizers are non-comedogenic so you don’t have to worry. This with the correct potency of active ingredients can put you on the path to beautifully clear skin.
The darker the skin is, the more “active” the melanocytes are. These are the cells in the dermis that create pigment. They are just waiting for any kind of stimulation in the way of picking, rubbing, heat, acne, or just about anything to form more pigment. The secret with having a successful outcome with this type of skin is to be very conservative in home care and treatments and to go very slowly. We very gradually increased the strength of her regimen and she cleared beautifully.
