Caring for Hyperpigmented Ethnic Skin
Natural and Organic Skin Care for Hyperpigmented Ethnic Skin
Has the true power of nature intervened in skin care for ethnic skin? More popular than ever natural and organic skin care products are being attributed to the benefits you see in skin care. Of course natural formulations that are packed with antioxidants are providing a powerful defense against the environment.
What's the leading concern for women of color, in skin care challenges?
The biggest concern is hyperpigmentation. It's defined as the appearance of dark spots, scarring and uneven skin tones. While it can affect any skin type and complexion, it is the greatest challenge for women of color.
And how do you treat hyperpigmentation for women of color, naturally? Most of you look for skin lightening products, so it's best if you use products with ingredients that come from nature itself. Below is a list of ingredients that you should look for in your skin care products when it comes to ethnic skin.
Bearberry Extract is a botanical skin lightener that contains natural forms of hydroquinone and arbutin. These two ingredients are considered a melanin inhibiting agent. Bearberry extract has powerful antioxidants that make it stable because it does not create oxidative stress when your skin is exposed to sunlight. Oxidation is what causes melanin formation.
Licorice Extract is an effective and potent skin lightener that contains liquiritin and glabridin. They disrupt melanin formation on your skin and decrease signs of hyperpigmentation. When you reduce inflammation in your skin, it has an impact on the appearance of hyperpigmentation. Licorice has anti-inflammatory properties and will work to tackle hyperpigmentation.
Being Patient and Persistent when treating hyperpigmented skin.
One of the most asked questions I get about natural ingredients is: how long will it take to work? Patience is key here. Natural ingredients will take time to work. In order to overcome hyperpigmentation naturally, it's extremely important that you maintain a strict skin care regimen that incorporates natural skin lighteners.
It's also important to remember that true beauty begins from within and a healthy eating plan is just as important as any skin lightener you choose. Your skin care product should work hand in hand with the foods you eat.
So patience comes in waiting for your "natural" product to work and persistence is for keeping up your skin care regimen and maintaining a healthy eating habit.
That's it for this week ...
As Always ...
Dedicated To Your Beauty,
