My Melasma journey has taken place for a couple of years now. I did not get this dread condition after having a baby, it came from lasers…oh yes, lasers can give you melasma. Who knew?
I have tried everything under the sun for this condition, to no avail. I now have some tried and true tricks to share with you!
1.Buy a peel from Amazon. I suggest a glycolic acid peel. Use it every couple of weeks.
2.Gators: Not a good look, but effective. I chose the full face covering + a hat. I looked like a crazy person, but who cares when you’re trying to protect yourself.
3. Tri-Luma is a whitening cream from the dermatologist with hydroquinone. This works, buuuut, you can only use it for 3-6 months and then you have to take a break for another 3 months. Not ideal.
Drum roll please….
TRANEXAMIC ACID, in pill form, is the GAME CHANGER. You can only get it from the dermatologist, and I’m here to tell you I don’t have to wear a burkha outside anymore! There are some side effects, blood clots can occur…this is why you must be under a doctor’s supervision.
There you go my friends…I hope you can benefit from this tip, like I have.
