How To Get Rid Of Dark Spots On Black Skin
Want to know how to get rid of dark spots on black skin? You’re in the right place – we got you!
We’ve known Chris-Tyler for years! He struggles with oily skin that is prone to breakouts and then has to mange the inevitable Post Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation (PIH)!!! He can usually keep it under control, but in the new normal, he’s been struggling a little more because of having to wear a face mask on a regular basis. He reached out and asked if we had anything that may be able to help with some dark spots that have popped up.
Our first thought went to a recent article we wrote 3 HydroPeptide Peel Combinations For Hyperpigmentation + Aging Beautifully. In the article we discuss a set of peel combinations, Barry fell in love with the Vitamin C 1 + Pumpkin Peel. We brainstormed, and decided that specific combination would be a perfect protocol on how to get rid of dark spots on black skin.
We had Chris-Tyler to the studio and took him through a complete skincare treatment that included peels masks, serums and spf!
