The skin is our body's largest organ and issues like acne, dryness, sun damage and uneven skin tone influence every color of skin. Women of color do however often undergo pigmentations and blemishes more often because of the high levels of melanin in the ethnic skin making it more sensitive to those conditions.
To start off it's essential for any color of skin to prevent harsh skin care ingredients as far as possible. Ingredients such as peppermint, lime, alcohol, menthol, eucalyptus, and scents, whether artificial or natural.
Cleansing and exfoliating
Wash your face with a gentle cleanser daily, rather water-based, to eliminate any build-up of germs and dirt throughout the day. Exfoliation needs to be carried out regularly, for example twice weekly, to remove dead skin cells.
What about chemical treatments?
Laser treatments and chemical peels may yield favorable benefits in treating blemishes and hyperpigmentation but these are rather harsh and should only be done at a professional salon by qualified skin care therapists or lotions.
Protection from harsh winter conditions
The harsh weather conditions during our winter months cause the skin to get rid of moisture which leads to dryness or flakiness. This is the reason a fantastic quality moisturizing cream or cream should be a part of your daily skincare regimen.
Ponds Flawless Radiance
One particularly good array of skincare products for women of color is your Ponds Flawless Radiance range. It works magic on flaws throughout the strong VAO B3 complex which works along with your genes and reduces the production and dispersion of melanin.
