An archive of posts with pictures and images of the melasma on my face, upper lip melasma, and before and after photos of full coverage makeup and melasma treatments I have tried.

 

I used Drunk Elephant, Marie Veronique lightening serum and Maya Chia the super couple to almost cure my upper lip melasma mustache! This is an incredible melasma treatment system I found after almost 15 years of living with melasma.

Best Fast, Clean & Green Beauty Melasma Treatment – Before and After, Part 1

I’m giddy with excitement. This is only the tip of the iceberg. This past winter I’ve seen the most improvement in my melasma since the decade+ I’ve been trying to treat it.  This is part 1 of what has been working to majorly reduce the appearance of my melasma and dark spots…without prescription hydroquinone or retinoids….

Pictures and Reviews of RMS Beauty Un Cover Up #11 is my favorite effective organic concealer for my dark spots and melasma. I lalso love RMS Beauty Magic Luminizer (better than Living Luminizer) and RMS Beauty Raw Coconut Cream.

The Best Organic Concealer for Dark Spots & Melasma, and Other RMS Beauty Daily Essentials

My first introduction to RMS beauty was their living luminizer a few years ago, and now I’m into most of their products! Besides being beautiful they are very nourishing and contain organic ingredients. RMS Beauty Un-Cover Up 11 Review – A Paraben Free & Organic Concealer or Cream Foundation for Melasma, Dark Spots and Hyperpigmentation I…

Drunk Elephant Minis + The Green/Eco/Clean/Non-Toxic/Cruelty-Free/Vegan Beauty Debate

What motivates you for better beauty? Are you passionate about vegan products? Are you only interested in cruelty-free beauty? Do you use only organic skincare and makeup? Are you fine with added fragrance? Do you care about PEGs? or Propylene glycol? Do parabens or phthalates matter to you? There is no right answer. Everyone is trying…

Marc Jacobs Remarcable Full Coverage Foundation Review for Dark Spots, Melasma and Vitiligo

If Kevyn Aucoin the sensual skin enhancer provides the best coverage for dark spots, melasma, hyperpigmentation and vitiligo, Cover FX  (which also makes this a good alternative to Dermablend) and Marc Jacobs Re(marc)able full coverage foundation are close seconds. I’m very surprised Sephora doesn’t recommend this full coverage foundation more. I had a friend (who…

Picture of Clean Beauty Swap: Use Coola Rosilliance Organic BB Cream Beauty Balm with SPF 30 instead of Stila Stay All Day 10-in-1 HD Illuminating Beauty Balm. Both are Paraben Free Beauty Balms

Non-Toxic Beauty Swap: Replace Stila Stay All Day Illuminating Beauty Balm with Coola Rōsilliance Organic BB Cream SPF 30

The first illuminating primer I bought was at Target almost 10 years ago. I don’t remember the brand – it’s one they no longer carry – but I remember the tub was lavender (one of my favorite colors) and the primer was perfection: It wasn’t heavily scented and it provided the perfect opalescent glow under…

Kevyn Aucoin's The Sensual Skin Enhancer Review: This is the best full coverage foundation makeup and concealer for melasma, hyperpigmentation, dark spots and vitiligo. However it does have added fragrance and sadly it contains parabens so I don't use it every day.

The Best Full Coverage Foundation Makeup for Dark Spots, Melasma & Vitiligo: Kevyn Aucoin The Sensual Skin Enhancer Review

Here’s the thing: For over 2 years I’ve known about the best full coverage, long lasting foundation makeup for melasma and vitiligo. For me, it’s mixing two colors of Kevyn Aucoin’s The Sensual Skin Enhancer. It is a great alternative to thick full coverage makeup like Dermablend. But it is not without it’s flaws (and…

A Tale of Two Chias: Maya Chia Super Couple Luxe Face Oil & One Love Organics Oh Mega Calming Chia Face Oil Reviews

Overall I’ve been very happy with my Glowing Beets, Art of Organics and Beauty Heroes monthly beauty boxes. Some products are amazing and some are just OK, but I feel the same way about my Stitch Fix boxes. Two real winners from my boxes so far have been One Love Organic Oh Mega Calming Chia…

Good Morning America: Dr. Whitney Bowe and Ginger Zee Discuss her Melasma / My Own Improvement without Hydroquinone

Did you catch Good Morning America Wednesday (February 8) ? ABC meteorologist Ginger Zee and her Dr. Whitney Bowe discussed Ginger’s struggle with Melasma during and after her pregnancy. Major shout out to my mom for always looking out for me! (I’m a Today show watcher so I would have missed this 🙂 ) I really…

Pictures and my reviews of awesome AHA and BHA resurfacers: My favorite is Drunk Elephant TLC Sukari Babyfacial then Tata Harper Resurfacing Mask followed by Ole Henriksen invigorating night treatment.

Radiant Resurfacing Mask & Treatment Reviews: Drunk Elephant Babyfacial™, Tata Harper and Ole Henriksen

I’m constantly trying new products to help improve my uneven skin tone, melasma and hyperpigmentation / dark spots. Alpha or Beta hydroxy acid resurfacing treatments have been a part of my weekly routine for years. These have variaying scents to them but they are all paraben-free exfoliating masks and treatments.  These are the ones I’ve…
