Prozradit! let me hear it! tell what I wanna know! So…what, pray tell, is currently on your beauty desire list?
Girl, what isn’t on my beauty desire listing is more like it!
I’ve been deep-diving into the skin care world, scanning the interwebs for solutions to hyperpigmentation as well as melasma, as well as I owe my find of these very first products to Dr. Alexis Stephens on YouTube. She has a video on hyperpigmentation for darker skin tones where she basically “sciences the sh*t” ? out of the components one should be looking for in their quest to even out their skin tone.
Today, I’m deeply enamored with the concept of tranexemic acid products as well as would like to add one to the mix, so I’m wish-listing (yes, I just made that up) three options.
Option one is cost effective as well as accessible. It’s the $14.99 INKEY listing Tranexamic Acid night treatment at Sephora. I like that it doesn’t break the bank, as well as I likewise like that it’s offered at Sephora, so I wouldn’t have to drive 250 miles to discover it.

Option two is pricier at $88 (oh, my!). It’s by Peter Thomas Roth, called the pro stamina Niacinamide Discoloration Treatment.
So, this one’s much more expensive, however I like that it contains hyperpigmentation heavy-hitters niacinamide as well as kojic acid, in addition to tranexemic acid. It’s likewise supposed to have a creamy texture, which my dry skin would most likely like.
Option three is the most costly ?? one, so of program it’s the one I’m most intrigued by, ha ha ha. It’s called SkinMedica Lytera 2.0, as well as it clocks in at a whopping, ridiculous, staggering $154!
I’ve seen the brand in dermatology offices before, though, as well as it’s listed in that hyperpigmentation video from Dr. Alexis Stephens, so I’m deeply curious about it…
After much interior debate, which is still ongoing, I’m believing about splurging on the Peter Thomas Roth product in the purple tube to kickstart things before perhaps ultimately transitioning to the more cost effective INKEY listing product for maintenance, presuming my skin likes tranexemic acid.
Also on my listing is a moisturizer with vitamin F, which technically isn’t a genuine vitamin, however rather two necessary fatty acids — an omega-3 fatty acid called alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), as well as an an omega-6 fatty acid called linoleic acid (LA). Vitamin F is one more thing that is supposed to assist with hyperpigmentation as well, as well as indeed this is one more thing I discovered from Dr. Alexis!
As for moisturizers, both of these are on my listing right meow: Biossance Squalane + Omega repair work cream ($58) as well as Drunk Elephant F-Balm Masque ($54).
Incidentally, even though the Drunk Elephant F-Balm is billed as a “sleeping mask,” I believe that’s just marketing-speak for “night moisturizer.” I can’t envision you couldn’t just utilize it in the evening before bed, if the timing as well as convenience worked out much better for you.
In other news…can we briefly chat about retinol for a minute? I’ve been utilizing this from Neutrogena for a few months, as well as I like it just fine (it’s moisturizing as well as doesn’t irritate my skin), however I’m getting the desire to try something new. I’ve been reading up on the different kinds of retinols in over-the-counter products, as well as now I want to try a treatment with retinaldehyde, which is supposed to work quicker than retinol…
The Avene RetrinAL 0.05 cream ($62) gets mentioned often, as well as so I’ve got that a person on my list!
Speaking of Avene, they have new mineral sunscreens, including a tinted one. Ugh. WANT! ?
That’s it for me…at least for now…from what I can believe of at this extremely moment. Ha! What’s currently on your beauty desire list? Dotazující mysli chtějí vědět.
Vaše přátelská společenství krása závislý,
