Topics I've Started

Dark Face, Lighter Neck/body

19 October 2013 - 10:48 AM

I have noticed over the years my face has increasingly become darker than my neck and body. It could be from years of attempting to correct my hyperpigmentation with exfoliants, over exfoliating and occasionally hydroquinone. 

 

My question is, has anyone with brown skin had this issue? What did you do/use to even out your skin tone? Please no HQ eusa_wall.gif

i'm looking for a laser center that has experience treating black skin.  Some of my acne/follicultis is due to hair removal. It's time to laser.  

 

If you have had a personal positive experience with laser hair removal on black skin or "caramel" skin tone in the Bay area, i'd like to know your experience, cost and where you had treatment done, thanks!

I'd like to get laser hair removal asap.  My skin breaks out daily from hair removal.  Has anyone with a skin tone tone close to "caramel" had a positive experience in the Bay Area CA?  Where laser center did you use?  I'd love to hear any success stories, thank you!


Need A Oil Free Moisturizer W/out Silicone

18 April 2013 - 02:14 PM

I desperately need to hydrate my oily/dehydrated skin, but majority of moisturizers cause clogged pores.

The issue is oils and silicones (omg they are in everything now!!)..dimethicone, cycomethicone,trimethicone..I CAN'T USE THESE.

Oh and my skin is sensitive to fragrance, dyes, scents.  Massively.

 

I need a oil free, silicone, beeswax, waxes, shea butter, cocoa butter,Salicylic acid free moisturizer with and without spf.

Cetaphil

Cerave

Purpose

Aveeno

Clear and Clear

Olay

Garnier

Murad

Proactiv

Orange Concealer/corrector For Hyperpigmentation

04 April 2013 - 09:49 PM

Has anyone tried orange corrector/concealer for hyperpigmentation and NOT dark circles?  I'd like to know what your experience was, which ORANGE correctors you have tried..?

 

I know it's common to use for dark circles, sun damage and to prevent brown skin tones from looking ashy when wearing foundation, concealer, powder & all these dark products have a very high pore clogging rate.

 

Anyway lol, let me know what worked and didn't. Cheers!
