Skincare Q & A's

Question: I’m 21 years old and I have oily acne prone skin I also have some hyper-pigmentation on my chin. And my under eye area is dark. I want to treat all of these problems could you tell me what products I need.


Answer: I have received your email and would love to help find the best products for your concerns. I would first like to go over factors that trigger melanin production.


External Factors

* UV sun exposure, wear a hat

* Heat from the Sun

* Overuse of strong chemical peels and laser procedures

* Excessive picking at blemishes

* Excessive rubbing of an area (i.e. using a sweat band, rubs on your forehead while working out)

* Perfume


Internal/Hormonal Factors

* Prescription medications

* Menopause

* Pregnancy

* Birth Control Pills


That being said I would recommend our Mandelic Acid and Day 25 to start. Mandelic Acid has the unique ability to target a number of different skin care issues, such as repairing skin damaged by photo-aging, combating hyper-pigmentation and treating acne, without irritation that can be caused by other alpha hydroxy acids. And the Day 25 is a great lightweight all in one moisturizer with SPF. As for the dark circles under your eyes I would recommend the Eye Q Gel, this eye treatment is very effective in not only reducing the appearance of dark circles but also tightening the under eye area. (For additional hydration and repair you could use the Gold Serum over top of the Eye Q Gel.)
