What are you doing to treat Melasma?

  • 7 years ago

Hi I am 25 and try to take care of my skin as best as I can. About 6-8 months ago I noticed that I had developed a darker brownish skin pigmentation above my upper lip on my otherwise fair skin.  I was told by an estitician that considering the fact that I applied sunscreen daily the culprit might be my birth control pills.I was wondering if anyone has had a similar melasma problem what has been the most effective/ least expensive treatment? The info is MUCH appreciated! Thank you so much.

I can tell you that I would not waste time responding to everyone trying to help other people enjoy the freedom I am experiencing that wasn't truly working awesomely for me... I don't even sell the product so I literally have nothing to gain except the fact that I'm helping others and that's the only reason I'm on this forum

By The way I was put on birth control at 14 for severe menstrual cramps and I attribute that to my severe my last my before and after pregnancy. I have tried everything from retinol to Tazorac to hydroquinone to kojoic acid and I'm telling you none of it worked but this mandelic acid that is in the nucelle products is truly a miracle. I am just a real person trying to share what I found with people who I can so relate to. I have nothing to gain from it whatsoever:-)

So dubious of this type of post as not sure if it is company trying to promote their own product.

Saffron I know exactly what you're saying and I felt like it sounded like a promotion that's why felt like saying I don't even sell it! truly it is a miracle. my girlfriend that I went to high school with, her and I both suffer melasma and we've both been keeping in contact looking for possible ways to get rid of it and I shared this with her about two weeks ago and it's working for her it really is amazing! I looked into the possibility of trying to sell it though because it is so amazing but you have to be an aesthetician or a dermatologist it's just such a wonderful product and it seems like no one really knows about it:-( I really am just here to try to share and promote the product in my own way because I want them to be successful so that they never go away that's how much I love the product:-) I hope you'll try it and realize what a blessing it is to have discovered it.

Hi ladies where can I get nizoral from and what isit? Am struggling to find it. And is listerine same as glycerine? Can't wait to try this need my upper lip to be gone. It's bringing my confidence down. Thanks for this recipe can't wait to try it!

Listerine can be found anywhere. Its just a mouthwash but has no glycerine in it. Nizoral is the name brand of an anti-dandruff shampoo found in any shampoo section (dandruff section tho) of a pharmacy type store, walmart and possibly some grocery stores but not sure. I get mine at cvs. Its in a navy blue bottle. U can go to the dr and get a prescription if you'd prefer (generic name is ketaconazole) but its pretty much the same thing minus a dr visit. Hope that helps
