SO, YOU MAY BE WONDERING, "WHAT AM I DOING HERE AND WHY DO I CARE?"
Let me ask you a question...
Do you want to be bold?
Do you want to be the one that everyone talks about?
Be the one who naturally has clear and glowing skin?
We all know the saying "BLACK DON'T CRACK" but those dark spots still aren't pleasing to the eye.
Hyperpigmentation, which is more notorious than B.I.G. himself, is also known as sun spots, age spots, dark spots and brown marks that are commonly found on our face.
Although other women have this issue as well, Hyperpigmentation is more likely to show up in melanated women like us that have darker skin tone.
SO HOW DOES CONQUERING DARK SPOTS FEEL?
So what is hyperpigmentation?
Your skin gets its color from a pigment called melanin. Your skin pigmentation is created through a series of reactions outlined below:
Facts about Skin with Melanin
- Large melanocytes release melanin which creates pigmented skin
- Skin with melanin has fewer lines and wrinkles
- Skin with melanin is prone to pigmentary disorders such as hyperpigmentation, dark spots, melisma or uneven skin tone
- Skin with melanin can develop raised scarring lesions such as keloids
- Skin with melanin can lose skin pigment through the skin disorder vitiligo
Hyperpigmentation or skin discoloration is generally the result of overexposure to the sun, healing blemishes or healed injury to the skin. It can also be the aftermath of skin problems, hormones, medications and medical conditions and many other factors, including acne and minor “skin insults” that lead to skin discoloration. This discoloration is brought about when excessive amounts of skin pigmentation, called melanin, is distributed to the affected area. Inflammation from injuries and blemishes can overstimulate the skin’s pigment-producing cells and cause them to create too much melanin. Once the blemishes clear, they frequently leave behind small, dark blotches on the skin that are known as post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation. Due to the higher levels of melanin in darker skin tones, people of color are particularly susceptible to the development of post-acne skin discolorations.
LET'S TAKE ACTION!
HOW OTHERS ARE TRYING...
There are ways to fade dark spots and return normal skin tone; however, people with darker skin tones should take extra precaution to avoid further injury to the skin.
How do we get rid of those dark spots?
Great skin begins with knowing your skin type. Knowing your skin type will help you to determine what skin care regimen is right for you. Looking for solutions before knowing your skin type is akin to walking blindfolded and getting frustrated when you find out that you’re lost.
WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS SAY...
Step 1 of conquering dark spots is exfoliation:
A lot of people don't realize that a major thing with skin is exfoliating your skin honey.
When Beyonce comes to your city it's a must that you buy tickets to her show, right? Well think of exfoliation in the same way.
You got to exfoliate your skin so that you can get all the dirt and oil out of your pores. Science has shown that one of the best ways to exfoliate your skin is to use an Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA).
Glycolic acids are one of the most popular AHAs and best for sensitive skin for refreshing and exfoliating your complexion without the irritation. Glycolic acid won't make your skin peel; it exfoliates the top layer of your skin and melts off debris in a gentle way, which makes way for new skin cells to emerge.
Now, what a lot of companies don't want you to know is that you don't need ingredients with names like Propylene Glycol or Dimethicon in your products to make them effective. They also leave out the fact that glycolic acid is derived from sugar cane and honey.
So Step 1 of the system is a Cleansr that smells good, is made out of honey and oatmeal and uses a natural glycolic acid that will cleanse, detoxify and exfoliate your skin.
So you won't look at the bar and be like
"I can't read this for nothing"
Know what I mean?
You can look at everything in our Cleansr and actually read it
Hell, Oatmeal and Honey
And by the way
Our honey supply comes from a local guy here.
We actually visited the bee farm and everything and he showed us how he's not giving the bees steroids or anything like that.
It's cool and legit, all locally made in Chicago.
Isn't that dope?
