Melissa Baker FACES


Complexion Perfection

One of the most common skincare troubles is an uneven complexion — more specifically, those dark spots left over from our acne-ridden teenage years. (Or, um, three months ago.) To make matters worse they are seriously difficult to get rid of and challenging to conceal once you've got them. Enter the dark-spot corrector. If you don't already have one in your skin-care regimen, it's time. There are plenty of over-the-counter options out there, but it's important to know what kind of formula to look for and how to use it properly 👩🏻‍🔬! Once you've made your selection, there are some things to be cautious of ⚠️ ... The most common issue with many lightening agents is that they can irritate the skin - leading to redness, flaking, dryness, or even itchy or burning sensations. Women with darker skin tones need to take extra care. Whether citric, lactic, or glycolic - using acids on dark skin tones should be done with caution & as excess peeling of the skin can conversely lead to hyper-pigmentation, or can cause burns that may lead to lightening or darkening of the skin so definetly consult with a skin care specialist beforehand. Lets also stress the importance of using sun protection in conjunction with your dark-spot treatment 🌞 as the active ingredients can make your skin more vulnerable to burns!! I love Forget Beauty’s  illuminating vitamin c powder ~ Pure and of the highest quality, this Vitamin C powder (L-ascorbic acid) acts as a protective and potent antioxidant that brightens the skin and improves the texture. This Vitamin C Powder works alongside Vitamin A (Empowered) to synthesis collagen, and help lighten and prevent hyper pigmentation ✔️👌🏼 For corrective treatments, microneedling and mandelic peels will help to encourage new healthy cells, and a brighter complexion ✨
