PIGMENTATION

Search

Hormonal influences are the main cause of a particular kind of hyperpigmentation known as melasma or chloasma. It’s particularly common among women and is thought to occur when the female sex hormones estrogen and progesterone stimulate the overproduction of melanin when the skin is exposed to the sun.

Melasma occurs as a brown to brown-gray patches typically on the face but may also occur on the forearms and chest. The distribution is often symmetric and occurs primarily in pubertal girls and women although adolescent boys may also be affected. While melasma is usually idiopathic, it can be associated with pregnancy or the ingestion of oral contraceptives. Lesions tend to increase in size and degree of hyperpigmentation after sun exposure.

Pigmentation often wanes after pregnancy or discontinuation of oral contraceptives. However, treatment with potent topical sunscreens, bleaching agents (hydroquinone) or pigmented-lesion lasers may be helpful.

Melasma or chloasma spots are similar in appearance to age spots but are larger areas of darkened skin that appear most often as a result of hormonal changes. Pregnancy, for example, can trigger overproduction of melanin that causes the “mask of pregnancy” on the face and darkened skin on the abdomen and other areas. Women who take birth control pills may also develop hyperpigmentation because their bodies undergo similar kind of hormonal changes that occur during pregnancy. If one is really bothered by the pigment, the birth control pills should be stopped.

Changes in skin color can result from outside causes. For example, skin diseases such as acne may leave dark spots after the condition clears. Other causes of dark spots are injuries to the skin, including some surgeries. Freckles are small brown spots that can appear anywhere on the body, but are most common on the face and arms. Freckles are an inherited characteristic.

Sunspots are temporary phenomena on the Sun‘s photosphere that appear as spots darker than the surrounding areas. They are regions of reduced surface temperature caused by concentrations of magnetic field flux that inhibit convection.

White spots on skin tend to show up on the sun-exposed areas of the arms and legs. They differ from brown spots not only in color, but also in why they form. Brown spots are due to excess pigmentation, but white spots occur when skin’spigment is destroyed from years of sun exposure.

Freckles, age spots, and other darkened skin patches can become darker or more pronounced when the skin is exposed to the sun. This happens because melanin absorbs the energy of the sun’s harmful ultraviolet rays in order to protect the skin from overexposure. The usual result of this process is skin tanning, which tends to darken areas that are already hyperpigmented. Wearing a sunscreen is a must. The sunscreen must be “broad spectrum” (i.e. it blocks both UVA and UVB). A single day of excess sun can undo months of treatment.

Pigmentation means coloring. Skin pigmentation disorders affect the color of your skin. Your skin gets its color from a pigment called melanin. Special cells in the skin make melanin. When these cells become damaged or unhealthy, it affects melanin production. Some pigmentation disorders affect just patches of skin. Others affect your entire body.

If your body makes too much melanin, your skin gets darker. Pregnancy, Addison’s disease, and sun exposure all can make your skin darker. If your body makes too little melanin, your skin gets lighter. Vitiligo is a condition that causes patches of light skin. Albinism is a genetic condition affecting a person’s skin. A person with albinism may have no color, lighter than normal skin color, or patchy missing skin color. Infections, blisters, and burns can also cause lighter skin.

Treatments are commonly used to minimize acne scars and hyperpigmentation, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, and correct sun damage issues such as age spots. Foremost, what differentiates skin peels and laser treatments is the procedure itself. … There are two types of lasers: ablative and non-ablative.

It is better to stay away from Hydroquinone and use plant-based skincare instead. The Super white bio serum a plant-based serum is a great alternative to hydroquinone. This organic serum can be used morning and night. The Gorgeous peel, a skin peel with TCA (a relative of vinegar (acetic acid.) When TCA is applied to the skin, it causes the top layers of cells to dry up and peel off over a period of several days to one week.) and multi-acid great to even out the complexion and keep the skin without dead skin cells so that when you apply the lightening serum, it will penetrate the skin better and deeper.

Yes, Microneedling can be used under your eyes to promote collagen production, which can lead to firmer, more youthful-looking skin. This procedure is typically used to treat dark circles skin under your eyes.

Microneedling under your eyes will cost $100 to $500 per session, and you’ll need to pay for multiple sessions. Or you can do it at home with your own microneedling pen.

Because, professional microneedling is considered much more effective than at-home microneedling devices. I suggest you invest in a professional microneedling machine like the I’m Fabulous Cosmetics Glow Derma Pen.

Microneedling uses very small needles to create a group of tiny punctures in your skin. These are called “microwounds,” and they don’t cause lasting damage to your skin. These microwounds close quickly, but before they do, your body triggers a repair response that’s directed to the area. This repair response includes signaling your skin to create brand-new cells and capillaries.

You can do microneedling under the eye using the NANO needles which are very safe and very short needles or the regular needles #42 which are longer needles, but the length of the needles can be easily adjusted.

Through the natural wound-healing process of the skin, these micro-injuries are repaired as new, healthier skin cells grow, and new collagen and elastin are produced. This helps to plump and firm skin, diminish signs of aging, and minimize the overall appearance of dark circles. To treat the delicate and sensitive skin around the under eyes.

Does microneedling get rid of dark circles, under-eye wrinkles, or eye bags?

Microneedling can be an effective treatment option for fine lines, under-eye bags, puffiness, hyperpigmentation, acne scars, and even stretch marks. The versatility of a microneedling treatment is what makes it beneficial for patients with varying skin tones and skin types. By adjusting the depth of penetration of the tiny needles on the dermapen, the delicate under eye skin can be treated with the microneedle pen to achieve a rejuvenated appearance.

Skincare with Microneedling

You can maximize the benefits of your favorite skincare products by applying them after a microneedling treatment. Stay away from ingredients like retinol and Retin-A, as these ingredients will be too harsh for skin after treatment. However, after a microneedling treatment hydrating ingredients like a plant-based hyaluronic acid are able to better penetrate the skin through newly created micro-channels, leaving your skin moisturized and glowing. Hyaluronic acid is a natural component of skin structure and helps to strengthen the natural protective barrier of skin as well as promote moisture retention. Hyaluronic acid keeps skin healthy and looking and feeling hydrated, youthful, and beautiful. 

Topical serums, such as I’m Fabulous Cosmetics ’s Vitamin C serum and volumizing serum containing hyaluronic acid (Volumizing serum and skin filler ) can be a very powerful way to boost the effects of your microneedling treatment.

I’m Fabulous Cosmetics products are organic and plant-based so also a great way to treat your skin naturally without harsh toxic preservatives. The serums works to provide the ultimate in hydration to the skin at every level, diminishing the appearance of dark circles, fine lines, and wrinkles by enhancing the skin’s moisture content. This revitalizing hyaluronic acid serum leaves the skin looking and feeling softer, smoother, and radiantly hydrated.

Is your skin lacking radiance or an inability to reflect light well.

Dull skin is often caused by dryness and one of the most popular reasons for dry skin, is not exfoliating enough or not exfoliating properly.

The air and atmosphere that you are in every day not only has an effect on your lungs as you breathe it in, but it also attaches itself to your skin. Polluted air contains thousands of small particles such as dirt, which contribute to your skin having a dull and an uneven texture. These particles also diffuse light, making your skin appear more dismal and cause you to have more wrinkles!

So make sure you wash your skin every single night. The dirt your skin collects throughout the day will damage your skin at night if it’s not removed.

Stress gets expressed in many forms in our body and getting problem skin is one of them. This is due to the fact that when you’re stressed, your fight-or-flight response kicks in and blood flows to your vital organs, where the skin isn’t one of them. This leads to the appearance of a more dull and tired complexion.

If you have stress you should try to reduce your stress levels and get more sleep but for the instances when you just want to make your skin seem a little more awake, try giving yourself a quick facial massage. It will stimulate blood flow, giving you a more glowing, plump and awake complexion.

Dr. Marcell, MD., agree that using a gentle TCA cleanser like the I’m Fabulous Cosmetics TCA cleanser, is a noninvasive approach that uses trichloroacetic acid and plants to exfoliate dead cells from the skin, without downtimes and that it is indeed a very conservative approach to making your skin healthy and glowing.

Dull skin may appear dry, patchy, ashy, or lackluster. Additionally, dullness is often accompanied by an uneven skin texture TCA (trichloracetic acid) is an analog of acetic acid (like vinegar) and is an active ingredient in many popular chemical peels. When applied to the skin, TCA peels exfoliate the top layer of skin over the course of several days, exposing a smoother and more attractive new layer of skin underneath.

Microneedling treatment can be safely done about once a month or every 4 to 6 weeks. This is the frequency that works best for the majority of patients of all skin types, but some patients find that microneedling treatment more or less frequently than this range works best for their skin and their aesthetic goals. 

Treatments to Maintain Results

After your first round of treatment is completed, and you have obtained your desired results, all subsequent appointments will be used to maintain these results. 

The results of this treatment build gradually, you will be able to have more time between your regular maintenance appointments than your first round. Many patients opt to have regular treatments every 6 to 8 weeks for this purpose.

What is Microneedling?

Microneedling creates tiny little holes in the face to stimulate collagen growth. Collagen not only gives the skin its youthful appearance, but also improves elasticity. As we age and with sun damage, collagen is depleted from the skin. This causes our skin to lose its youthful look and feel. With microneedling, we can help increase the production of collagen by making tiny holes in your skin which causes your body to react by creating new collagen – so with this treatment you “trick” the body into thinking there is damage. Electric needling pens are much better than skin rollers and the results are more drastic with the electric pen.

Benefits Of Microneedling:

What Are Results Like?

The results of this procedure are reliable and predictable. Regardless of your age or skin condition, you can be certain that you will experience the desired results. 

How does one maintain youthful glow?

You can maintain a youthful glow by getting regular facials. Microneedling has the added benefit of creating thousands of microscopic channels in your skin, this allows us to get deep into collagen layers to stimulate collagen growth.

What is the length of procedure?

Duration depends on the treatment desired. For example, microneedling may take 15 minutes for face and 30-45 minutes for body. Often times we combine microneedling with other skin rejuvenation procedures such as LED light therapy or radio frequency to give you an optimum youthful glow.

I love retinol, I truly do, it’s the creme de la creme of anti-aging ingredients on the market today thanks to its ability to increase cell turnover. Cell turnover is the process in which dead skin cells are shed to make way for new skin growth and the result is smoother skin with a more even tone and fewer fine lines and wrinkles. Cell turnover also helps to stimulate collagen production, a structural protein essential for youthful, plump skin. 

Retinol can be very irritating for some people, especially for dry and sensitive skin types. Bakuchiol is a nice way to get the benefits without skin irritation.

What is Bakuchiol?

The bakuchiol is a 100% plant-based ingredient that comes from the seeds and leaves of a plant native to Eastern Asia and has long been used in Ayurveda.

Is Bakuchiol as strong as retinol?

A comparison of retinol and bakuchiol published in the British Journal of Dermatology reveals that bakuchiol provides the same skin-rejuvenating promises as retinoids, but without the potentially pesky side-effects. 

 

Is Bakuchiol safer than retinol?

Unlike retinol, bakuchiol has no harsh side effects on the skin and is a much more gentle alternative.

Studies have also shown bakuchiol’s abilities to reduce acne by fighting inflammation, hyperpigmentation, and roughness. Anis, the founder and CEO of I’m Fabulous Cosmetics, rave about the Retinol cream, all plants based and organic. I have sensitive skin and only uses plant plants natural products on my skin. But I l only uses products loaded with high concentration of active raw anti-aging ingredients. I use the retinol cream on my skincare routine each time and my skin is just flawless.

You need to adjust your skincare routine to accommodate seasonal changes. What works for your skin in the winter, won’t quite meet your skin’s needs in the summer.

Sun protection remains a constant. Especially in the summer, when the days are longer and the sun’s UV rays are intense, you want to keep your skin hydrated, bright, and protected.

You should include these skincare basics in your routine: cleanser, toner, serum, moisturizer, and sunscreenEvery day if you will be outside. The sun emits harmful UV rays year-round. Even on cloudy days, up to 80 percent of the sun’s harmful UV rays can penetrate your skin. Your goal is to nourish the skin and protect it from UV rays, without clogging the pores and exacerbating its naturally oily film.

1. Cleanser Tips for Summer Skincare

For most people, summer probably means lots of sweating. And lots of sweating means an increased chance of clogged pores. When the skin is moist from sweat, it’s a magnet for dirt and debris. As dirt, pollutants and random particles stick to your face, they can clog your pores, which creates acne breakouts.

Cleanser Tip: Using a gentle cleanser is key in the summer.

Harsh cleansers that strip the skin barrier should be avoided entirely. Don’t deprive your skin of its natural defense mechanism. Your gentle cleanser should be kind to your skin, but proactive in cleansing the impurities from your skin.

Maintaining the skin’s natural barrier during the heat of the summer is essential for protecting the skin from the sun’s long-lasting UV rays. You want to choose a cleanser that goes below the surface of the skin to remove dirt, debris and residual sunscreen from the pores, without stripping the skin of its natural oils, are prime. 

The heat and humidity trigger sebum production in the skin, which means increased oil production. Increased oil production means increased risk of clogged pores, and we all know what clogged pores lead to… unsightly acne breakouts. 

When it comes to exfoliation, we’ll recommend chemical exfoliants over physical exfoliants in any season. Chemical exfoliants, like BHAs (salicylic acid) and AHAs (glycolic acid), exfoliate the skin on a cellular level. These exfoliants work by breaking down the sugars in the skin to loosen the dead skin cells on the surface. This forces the dead skin cells to shed and new skin cells to generate. 

Use exfoliants only at night, a few nights a week (give or take a night depending on your skin’s sensitivity) and plan to use them a few days before you’ll be in the sun for an extended period of time. Don’t exfoliate the night before you head to the beach.

2. Toner Tips for Summer Skincare

Yes, toner is a must! The right toner will work alongside your skin’s natural composition to balance your skin’s pH levels. Skin pH levels have everything to do with oily skin, dry skin, and every skin type in between. 

The pH scale ranges from 1 to 14, with 7 considered “neutral.” The lower numbers are acidic, while the upper levels are considered alkaline, or nonacidic.

You might be surprised to learn that a healthy skin pH is more on the acidic side. With more acidity, your skin can combat harmful microbes and damaging free radicals that might increase the aging process.

Stay away from toners with alcohol! It’s a common belief that toners with alcohol are an essential step to killing acne-causing bacteria, but it’s also a double-edged sword. Though alcohol does fight bacteria, it also strips the skin of moisture. Alcohol also strips the skin of its natural, protective oils. Just like over-exfoliating, toning the skin with alcohol can make your skin more susceptible to sun damage. Toners are critical after the double cleanse because they remove any impurities your cleansers didn’t catch.

If skin is not at a balanced pH level, it becomes prone to the cycle of excessive dryness followed by too much oil production, and even environmental damage.

Toners facilitate active ingredient penetration from your other skin care products. Think of it as a booster for your vitamin C, retinol, or expensive anti-aging creams.

Aloe vera is natural, antibacterial, and antimicrobial. Using a toner with aloe vera is basically a double-cleanse for your face. Especially in the summer, antibacterial properties in your skincare ingredients are essential for maintaining a fresh, gunk-free complexion. Aloe is also anti-inflammatory, so it can effectively dull any sun-induced redness or irritation on your face. 

I’m Fabulous cosmetics toners have aloe vera as a main ingredient instead or water, zero alcohol and loaded with active raw plant-based ingredients.

Tea tree oil, like our other two toner ingredient must-haves, is a natural ingredient with powerful skincare benefits. This agent is antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory, and has tons of different uses for the body. Tea tree oil is used to clean wounds, to treat psoriasis and eczema, to treat oily skin, itchy skin, dry skin—the list goes on. Toners with tea tree oil will penetrate deep into the pores to kill bacteria at the source.

3. Serum Tips for Summer Skincare

Serums with antioxidants are one of the best ways to nourish and revitalize the skin year-round. Serums are potent, brightening, hydrating, and refreshing. Providing your skin with antioxidants is like giving your skin the gift of vitality. Serums are great!

All forms of sun damage and over exposure to the sun (like hyperpigmentation, dark circles, dull skin, dark spots, wrinkles, and enlarged pores) can be treated with a vitamin C serum. That’s because vitamin C is a miraculous antioxidant. Antioxidants transform the skin on a cellular level, by neutralizing free radicals

Vitamin C should be at the top of your summer skincare list—right beside sunscreen.

4. Moisturizer and Sunscreen Tips for Summer Skincare

Thick moisturizers can leave your skin feeling oily, sticky, and acne-inflamed when the humidity and heat are high in the summer. Choosing moisturizers with hyaluronic acid and peptides, specifically, can hydrate your skin throughout the summer without leaving a film of un-absorbed product on your face. Hyaluronic acid increases the skin’s resilience, increases collagen production, and increases the rate of cellular turnover. Peptides fight fine lines and wrinkles.

Whether you have sensitive skin, oily skin, or combination skin, your skincare routine needs some modifications throughout the seasons if you want your best skin to come.

Sunscreen use can help prevent skin cancer by protecting you from the sun’s harmful ultraviolet rays. Anyone can get skin cancer, regardless of age, gender or race. In fact, it is estimated that one in five Americans will develop skin cancer in their lifetime.


The American Academy of Dermatology recommends everyone use sunscreen that offers the following:

  • Broad-spectrum protection (protects against UVA and UVB rays)
  • SPF 30 or higher
  • Water resistance

Your skin is a protective barrier that keeps you safe against all kinds of infection, that can otherwise harm your body. Don’t you feel that you should be taking precautionary measures to maintain its inner glow and vitality? However, sometimes your skin looks a little less than glowing. 

It can be a condition induced from work overload or perhaps, your skin is dealing with dullness. The word dullness is typically an umbrella term and can encompass a number of skin conditions like lackluster, drying, uneven skin, non-vibrant look, and much more. 

Ever wondered what is the culprit behind your dullness? Well, there can be many reasons but discovering the cause is the initial step that will help restore the glow and radiant complexion. 

Let’s get through the guide to fix some of the most common causes for dull resembling skin. 

Common Reasons For Dull Skin and Remedies to Fix it

  1. Dry and Dehydrated Skin: Imagine a dry and lifeless plant compared to the one that is full of greenery. The same applies to your skin when it’s dehydrated. The lack of moisture makes it dry and dehydrated which eventually imparts a dullness to the skin. 

Apply Hydrating Cleanser and Moisturizer: Switch to a hydrating cleanser that doesn’t take away the natural oil of the skin. Pick a formula that doesn’t suds up unnaturally. 

After washing the face or taking a bath it’s a good time to apply moisturizer on the damp skin. Go for a layer of natural moisturizer with emollients, like sunflower oils, squalane, or ceramides. This will create a light-reflective surface that makes skin appear naturally healthy. 

  1. Excess Dead Skin Cells Buildup: The skin naturally sheds away a layer of dead skin buildup. Although aging, the rate of shedding away can decelerate blocking the new and fresh skin under the shining, adding to the skin’s dullness. 

Add Exfoliation to Your Routine: Surely, you wash your face to remove the regular dirt buildup or the makeup that clings to your skin. However, have you made exfoliation a part of your beauty care routine? 

Exfoliation removes the excess dead skin buildup that clogs the pores. There are mechanical exfoliators like scrubs and brushes while chemical exfoliation includes glycolic, citric, lactic, or salicylic acids. 

  1. Increased Stress: The stress-induced from your professional or personal life can turn to be chronic causing skin inflammation. It can further amplify the skin conditions like acne and rosacea, turning your skin dry and dull. 

Release Stress with Face Massage: Releasing stress from the skin works a great way in restoring moisture. Indulge in a pampering session to massage the skin with moisturizer and creams when you are applying it on the face. Also, keep a check on your dietary intake and practice relaxing meditation and yoga therapy. 

  1. Aging and Wrinkles: Worried about the signs of aging and wrinkles on your skin? This is an inevitable part and there isn’t any chance to skip the process. Quite naturally, the skin registers a depletion in the collagen level with other signs like blemishes and uneven skin tone. 

Stimulate Collagen with Supplements: You can stimulate collagen production in your skin with effective solutions like retinoids and bamboo silica supplements

Retinoids are vitamin A derivatives that boost collagen production and normalize skin cell turnover. Bamboo silica is also a collagen-boosting supplement that also helps to lock the moisture in the skin. 

  1. Lack of Blood Circulation: The natural flush that skin achieves after a workout or jog session is because the body is pumping blood. A lack of blood circulation indicates less nutrition and oxygen being carried to the skin cells which reduces the glow. 

Use of Face Roller: Face rollers are way beyond a pretty inclusion in your dressing table. After applying your favorite moisturizer or serum, consider giving a massage using a roller to increase the blood circulation on the face skin. 

  1. Exposure to Environmental Damage: Exposure to environmental pollution, dust, and germs can have damaging effects on the skin. It can cause loss of collagen, excess pigmentation, skin tanning making it damaged and dull. 

Add an Antioxidant: Consider antioxidants as a friend for your skin when it comes to restoring the damages caused to over-exposure to environmental pollution. Making antioxidants like vitamin C and niacinamide to your beauty care regime can brighten your skin and guard it against free radical damage. 

  1. Stepping Out Without Sunscreen: The harmful UV rays of the sun have a bad reputation for skin darkening and tanning. Additionally, it can break down the skin protein and deplete the moisture barrier adding to dull and fatigue-looking skin.  

Wear Sunscreen Daily: Don’t miss on wearing sunscreen whenever you step out of the house as it a bulletproof remedy. Apply a layer of it to prevent skin from dyspigmentation, spots, and dull structure. 

Never Miss on the Skin Remedies!

There can be many underlying causes that contribute to the dullness of your skin. However, once you detect the reasons, never miss on the remedy. 

It can act as a wonder to replenish the lost charm and glow from your skin.  After all your skin deserves the best practices and care!

What’s Involved In ‘Skin Botox’?

Skin Botox also differs from standard Botox in its procedure. Different needles are used for different parts of the face, and are inserted around 40 to 50 times along the under-eye, forehead and jawline areas, which is significantly more compared to traditional Botox’s three to five times.

In saying that, there are a few other very similar injectables available in the United States. One of them is AquaGold, which combines a hyaluronic acid-based filler with neurotoxin and a diluent, and is injected into the superficial layers of the skin for a similar ‘glass skin‘ look.

While regular botox is injected into the muscles of your face to weaken them and prevent creases from forming, skin botox is injected on the outer layer of skin (just below the surface to be precise) and claims to be able to treat and tighten pores, brighten skin and give your complexion an overall smoothing effect. Basically, you get glass skin without having to bother about serums or highlighters.

Where Can You Get Skin Botox In the United States?

While the treatment might be extremely popular and common place in Korea, it’s not that well known in other parts of the world. If you decide you want to try it, you’ll probably have to hop on the plane and head to the land of Kpop and kimchi to get it. And considering that the results only last about three to six months, that means a lot of flights a year just to maintain the look.

However, you can find a great alternative. A new skin-rejuvenating technique that helps build collagen, plump wrinkles, and dramatically increase (a much needed) glow with no downtime. The Glow Hydra Facial, an organic and plant-based serum, made in the united states, with fabulous ingredients like Hyaluronic Acid, Copper Peptides, *CBD oil, *Vitamin C, Snap-8 and Vitamin B12.

HYALURONIC ACID: helps reduce the visibility of fine lines and wrinkles retaining moisture to the skin, creating a plumping effect. When the skin is protected and hydrated, increased skin cell production can take place, as the skin isn’t busy fighting for hydration. This leads to smoother, plumper skin cells.

COPPER PEPTIDES: can rejuvenate skin cells in aging tissue, boosting the production of collagen and elastin. Levels of these structural proteins naturally decrease with age, and by increasing the amount available in the tissue, the skin can regain elasticity and strength.

CBD OIL: provide moisture to the affected areas, in order to heal the broken and cracked skin. Also, the anti-inflammatory properties of CBD oil can relieve the burning symptoms, redness and associated dryness.

SNAP-8: The anti-wrinkle octapeptide, it reduces the depth of wrinkles on the face caused by the contraction of muscles of facial expression, especially in the forehead and around the eyes. a safer, cheaper, and milder alternative to Botulinum Toxin, topically targeting the same wrinkle-formation mechanism in a very different way. As a result, it reduces neuronal excitability and, therefore, muscle contraction. By reducing muscle contractions, wrinkle depth is reduced up to 63% in one month of treatment. Fine lines and expression wrinkles fade, and the face looks smoother.

VITAMIN B12:  For healthy skin, nails and hair.

Using a stamping device that contains 20 cannulated gold needles and a vial with a fabulous cocktail (a mix of vitamins and nutrients, then uses clusters of tiny needles (a technique known as micro-needling) to infuse the cocktail just beneath the surface layer of the skin. The neddles are only 0.5 mm. So they are no downtime. This fabulous serum includes the skin cocktail serum + the stamping Device + an Instruction sheet.

Erika Miller, is a huge fan! After years at the beach in Miami; my skin was so damaged I decided I needed to do something about it! With regular use, MY skin became immediately clearer, softer, smoother, and spot-free. The TCA Lactic & Glycolic body peel is self-neutralizing and contains a powerful five-acid complex to address everything from dark spots to body acne. Safe for sensitive skin and eczema, natural exfoliating acids like lactic and salicylic remove dead skin, soften keratin bumps, and eradicate acne-causing bacteria. “I was in love after just the first treatment”, said Erika!
