The top five products for treating melasma!
Melasma is a frustrating skin issue for many people and requires a comprehensive home care routine (including adequate sun protection). Here are my top 5 favorite treatment products for lightening stubborn spots.
Clinically proven to decrease the intensity of pigmented areas by 75% in only 3 months, iS Clinical White Lightening Serum is the key to unlocking even, brighter skin. This lightweight serum inhibits the darkening of spots, provides controlled exfoliation and gently resurfaces the skin without causing inflammation. A highly active blend of Norwegian sea kelp extracts and powerful botanical acids lighten as well as deliver anti-aging benefits, smoothing out fine lines and wrinkles.
SkinBrite Serum $60
DermaQuest SkinBrite Serum lightens and prevents discoloration for a brighter, more vibrant complexion. Alpha hydroxy acids resurface skin, sloughing away dead skin cells and promoting new cell growth for a smooth, soft finish. The serum restores moisture as peppermint soothes and comforts.
Pigment Gel $57
PCA’s Pigment Gel is formulated with 2% hydroquinone to lighten and inhibit hyperpigmentation of all types, including age spots. Effective for all types of hyperpigmentation including hormonal, sun-induced and following inflammation or breakouts
Nu Derm Clear FX $94
Obagi Nu-Derm Clear Fx provides a hydroquinone-free treatment for those seeking a whitening cream without bleach. Formulated with vitamins, antioxidants and natural extracts, this facial lotion addresses hyperpigmentation such as melasma, dark spots and even the ruddy aftermath of breakouts while clarifying and evening your overall appearance.
Tri-Luma requires a prescription from a doctor but has long been considered the gold standard for treating difficult melasma cases. It combines hydroquinone with tretinoin and an anti-inflammatory topical to calm the skin.
