  • The most important thing to do is use an exfoliator frequently. It will help get rid of dead skin, leaving it smoother and less blotchy. Then you want to use a cream suited to your skin type with a good spf. Loreal and Olay make the best otc's

  • I agree with the Olay.... I LOVE the stuff! I also agree with exfoliation - you can actually just use your fingertips in the shower to do little circles all over your face to sluff off dead skin after a warm shower... And if your color needs correction there are some creams with pigment lifters in them (I know Palmers makes one) that is more mkted to the African American consumer, but can be used by all ethnicities... I really need to score some of that as well. Those hormones did a number on me!

  • I am an independent representative for Sensaria Natural Bodycare. We have several products that typically have been known to help with this issue. I would love to talk to you some more and recommend a couple of products. Please message me if you'd like to talk or my website.

  • I know someone with the same issues. And I helped her out with our products. A great skin care routine along with Microderm Abrasion (yes, you can find great ones at home) and other products will help you most.
    I know how overwhelming it can be with so many products. Feel free to PM me. I can send you samples and answer any questions you have.

  • Hey there,
    I have suffered from the same thing, I tried a lot of products that did not work.
    I found some products that had prescription Medication in them that were made by doctors.
    They offer 100% money back guarantee, so they stand behind their products.
