Does Skin Tone Matter When Choosing Products?

Does it matter what type of products that are applied to different skin tones? The answer is yes, it absolutely does matter. There are some products that can make your skin tone darker based on the ingredients in the product. While there are some skin care products used to control or correct blemished skin. So, you want to be very careful in the selection and application of skincare products.

Melasma in Darker Skin

Skin that is naturally darker has the advantage of some natural sun protection and shows slower signs of aging, but is also susceptible to blotchy skin discoloration. Melasma, also known as hyperpigmentation is an alteration or change in the color of the skin due to an increase in melanin. Melasma often occurs in a spotty pattern on the skin as it ages, but it can also occur at younger ages too. It is a more frequent problem in women, especially those of darker skin tones.  Melasma is not dangerous or life-threatening, however it is a common cosmetic concern. There is no cure for hyperpigmentation, but it can be minimized and or controlled by being proactive and paying careful attention as you limit your exposure to the sun, while protecting the skin with a minimum of a SPF 15 used daily.

 

How to Choose the Best Skin Care Product for Your Skin Tone

One of the best things you can do for your skin is to use quality products. Don’t go for the cheapest products or the most convenient to buy. Instead, select skin care cleansers, moisturizers and creams that have been proven to work and offer substantial results. It is also very important to apply your skincare products in the right order. You want to make sure that your skin is receiving the full benefits of the products that you use.

 

Applying Your Skincare Products in the Right Order

·  Make Up Removers and Cleansers

If you wear makeup, sunscreen, an evening cleanse is a must.  Clean skin is the prime foundation for any treatments or products you use. No matter what type of skin you have, never use a harsh cleanser. Be kind to your skin and use a gentle cleanser.

Starting your regimen with a natural makeup-removing cleanser and warm, steamy cloth are an effective way to remove your makeup. Our Grapeseed Green Coffee Moringa Cleansing Oil doubles as a makeup remover, while it hydrates skin without clogging pores. 

·  Moisturizers

Selecting and applying a great moisturizer is just as important as cleansing your skin. Whether your skin is dry, sensitive, light or dark, you want to include this step in your daily regimen as well.

· Treatment Products

Realize that many traditional products won’t repair damaged skin. You’ll need to search for products specifically designed for each problem you have. For instance, the dark pigmentation on your skin which is the result of sun damage, requires special ingredients to treat these discolorations.

Some of these products work to reduce the appearance of the skin issues like wrinkles and scars, while others remove the problem. It’s important learn about the products beforehand to understand what they will do for your skin. Covering up acne scars with heavy makeup that just further clogs pores should not be your ulternative. Let the Flawless Facial System COMPLETE transform your skin by clearing acne and hyperpigmentation for good!
