Notes from Ben on hyperpigmented skin
Supporting Lifestyle and Nutritional Protocol
Dark spots on the skin, known as melasma are caused by excessive production of melanin. These darkened patches that show up with aging or after healing from traumatized or inflamed skin are linked to excessive secretion of the hormones' cortisol and estrogen. They can also appear as a result of estrogen-related to pregnancy, birth control pills or hormone replacement therapy. Fortunately, this condition is easy to address with topical exfoliation which can speed removal of excess pigment as well as internal strategies for reducing cortisol and balancing estrogen and improving its elimination. Note: pigmentation that shows up in the deeper layers the skin is not melanin but rather a type of cellular debris called lipofuscin which cannot be addressed topically. To eliminate lipofuscin, use lymphatic drainage techniques, including massage, slow, deep, rhythmic breathing, exercise and inversion devices. Add the following protocols to your daily routine:
1. Keep blood sugar stable and avoid hypoglycemia (low blood sugar) by eating a low carb diet.
3. Balance estrogen with progesterone cream and pregnenolone capsules.
4. Use quality probiotics and eat fermented foods.
5. Use digestive enzymes, especially lipase and pancreatin, bile salts and apple cider vinegar with all meals. Start meals off with “bitters” and bitter veggies like dandelion greens, radish, arugula, and kale.
6. Use nutritional supplements featuring all 90 essential nutrients. Pay particular attention to:
Vitamin C is one of the most important substances you can put into and onto your body. In this post, we’re breaking down the importance of topical Vitamin C, what to look for in your skincare products, and why our C produts are the best Vitamin C skin care product for your skin.
Truth Treatments™ Transdermal C Serum is a highly concentrated youth-boosting serum designed to heal the skin and up-regulate skin function. Developed with only functional ingredients and our Transdermal Delivery Matrix for delivery deep into the dermis, Transdermal C Serum will affect change at the cellular level - firming and plumping skin, increasing hydration, and reducing inflammation and discoloration.
Apply Transdermal C Serum to freshly cleansed, still damp skin. Dispense 2-3 drops of the serum into the palm of your hand. For maximum absorption, we recommend combining the Serum with 1-2 pumps of our Truth Treatments™ Biomimetic Priming Mist and mix them together with your fingers to emulsify. Massage into skin until absorbed. You may layer additional skincare products over Transdermal C Serum as usual.
Truth Treatments Transdermal C Serum features over 50% active, lipophilic Vitamin C. This is an industry high! Most drugstore and retail brands use up to 20% active ingredients. Even clinical brands pale in comparison typically only using up to 30% active ingredients and often use water soluble Vitamin C, which is highly unstable and ineffective.
Not all Vitamin C’s are created equal. Truth Treatments Transdermal C Serum is developed with a premium, lipophilic form of Vitamin C, which is more stable than standard (and cheaper) water-soluble formulas. This lipophilic form of Vitamin C has been proven to be more easily absorbed and utilized by the skin, up-regulating the skin’s enzymatic and regenerative processes. Combined with our 100% active, functional formula and Transdermal Delivery Matrix, our Transdermal C Serum meets the strictest performance standards to create real change in the skin.
Because Truth Treatments Transdermal C Serum is formulated with only active and functional ingredients, a tiny amount of this concentrated serum goes a long way. We recommend using just 2-3 drops applied to damp skin for the face and neck.
Absolutely! Because we formulate with no skin irritants like fillers, synthetic ingredients, color or fragrance, this serum is perfect for sensitive skin. Additionally, Transdermal C Serum was developed with Bisabolol for its soothing, anti-inflammatory properties, so you’ll see a reduction in redness and irritation with use.
