A few weeks ago I received an email from one of my subscribers asking at what point during her beauty regimen should she apply sunscreen.
I’m very excited, love your tips on how to mantain a beautiful skin.Im a young women 28 years well I started to used sunblock about 5 months ago and I wanted to know if I have to apply the sunblock on my face before I put on my daily cream
What can I do to remove a little dark that I have on my cheek..I was using Hydroquinone but I read and article that affirm that it can cause cancer so I stop using it.
Keep informing me with your beautytips loveit.
You should apply your moisturizer first, followed by your sunblock. If you wear makeup (hopefully it’s all natural mineral makeup!), put your makeup on top of that.
For uneven skin tone, try Clinique Even Better Skin Tone Corrector. It takes some time but I like that’s gentle and good for sensitive skin.
Why did I recommend Clinique’s Even Better Skin Tone Corrector?
Not because it’s natural. That’s for sure. It’s not. However, I’ve found it to be very gentle on the skin. It does not cause a dramatic change in the skin to lighten hyper-pigmentation. Instead, it fades dark spots over time and without the use of hydroquinone.
Here are the ingredients:
Water, Dimethicone, Isododecane, Cyclopentasiloxane, Polysilicone-11, Butylene Glycol, Ascorbyl Glucoside, Peg-10 Dimethicone, Turmeric Root Extract, Rice Bran Extract, Grapefruit Peel Extract, Barley Extract, Wheat Germ Extract, Birch Bark Extract, Cucumber Fruit Extract, Dimethoxytolyl Propylresorcinol, Scutellaria Baicalensis Root Extract, Mulberry Root Extract, Trametes Versicolor Extract, Saccharomyces Lysate Extract, Yeast Extract, Peg-6, Tromethamine, Salicylic Acid, Polysorbate 20, Cholesterol, Isohexadecane, Propylene Glycol Dicaprate, Sunflower Seedcake, Caffeine, Tocopheryl Acetate, Acetyl Glucosamine, Simethicone, Glycyrrhetinic Acid, Polysorbate 80, Sodium Hyaluronate, Di-C12-18 Alkyl Dimonium Chloride, Sodium Rna, Squalane, Sodium Sulfite, Sodium Metabisulfite, Caprylyl Glycol, Hexylene Glycol, Ammonium Acryloyldimethyltaurate Vp/Copolymer, Acrylamide/Sodium Acryloyldimethyltaurate Copolymer, Disodium Edta, Phenoxyethanol, Yellow 6, Yellow 5.
In the case of Clinique’s Even Better Skin Tone Corrector, while this is not an all natural product many of the ingredients are. They are close to the beginning of the ingredient list. You’ll also notice that the product contains the acne fighter salicylic acid.
Fade creams should be used until desired results are achieved. They are not meant to be a part of your ongoing skin care regimen or for maintenance. Use them as you need them. Alternatively, hyperpigmentation can heal itself over time provided no re-injury is done to the skin. However, it takes a very long time for uneven skin tone to normalize on its own.
Stay tuned for a future post where I’ll share my aestheticians tips for using skin care products (all natural vs. OTC vs. pharmaceutical)
