Use Morning and Night, after cleansing. Apply to the entire face, neck and decollete. Follow with SPF during the day to protect against pigmentation.
When I got pregnant, my skin care professional switched me to Derma Pigment Skin Brightener. Is it safe to use during the day and in my condition?
Yes, Derma Pigment Skin Brightener does not contain Hydroquinone which is a known photo-sensitizer. Derma Pigment Skin Brightener can be used safely by pregnant women or nursing moms, even applying twice daily. Keep in mind that during pregnancy you are more vulnerable to hyperpigmentation often referred to as melasma or the “pregnancy mask”. Make sure you always protect your skin from the sun with one of the many GlyMed Plus sunscreens. Using Derma Pigment Skin Brightener twice a day will reduce the risk of this condition.
I am on my third week of using Derma Pigment Skin Brightener and although I see a slight lightening, I had hoped to see a more significant result by now. Is this the wrong product for me?
Skin is a very complex and reactive organ. Every individual’s genetics, age, lifestyle, health, etc. will have an impact on how skin reacts to certain ingredients. This fact, multiplied by the process of how pigmentation is developed and dispersed in the skin makes it impossible to promise any particular time frame for success. Remember, the damage you see today on your skin is not a result of something that happened yesterday. Rather, it is a process that has been manifesting under the skin for many years and even decades. In other words, you didn’t acquire it overnight and it will not go away overnight. If you haven’t already, try incorporating GlyMed Plus AHA Accelerator or Treatment Cream to your routine.
Is this product safe for pregnant or breastfeeding moms?
Yes, this product contains natural ingredients for treating hyperpigmentation in the skin. During pregnancy our skin can be prone to pigmentation disorders due to hormones changes. Thorough treatments for correcting pigmentation should take place after breastfeeding is finished.
