LED MASK - SKIN LIGHTENING DEVICE

Rejuven LED THERAPY MASK
(25% OFF Discount Code - ANNIVERSARY)
Rejuven LED THERAPY MASK (Amazon)

(If you have Melasma only use the Green, Blue, or Yellow Lights.) The Red Light produces collagen but will make your Melasma worse! I use the Green Light for 15 minutes at night. Use the light with a clean face (Do not use the Tretinoin/Retin A before using the light. Apply that after using the light if desired.)

LIGHTS SAFT TO USE WITH MELASMA:
* Green Light = Best for balancing color pigmentation. Targets melanin-producing cells. You can apply a skin brightening cream for best results but it will work with no cream. I use Obagi Clear FX before using the Green Light.
* Blue Light = Helps get rid of acne causing bacteria
* Yellow Light - Flushes waste from the skin & improves lymphatic drainage. Also helps with skin redness and spider veins.

*Prescription Suggested - Talk to your doctor before using these products*

TARA SKIN CARE (Hydroquinone & Retin A)
I alternate EUKROMA 4% HYDROQUINONE / TRETINOIN RETIN A CREAM 0.05% / TRETINOIN RETIN A GEL 0.1% (very strong!! After using the 0.1% Gel one time my face peeled for a week.) This is aggressive but it works when mixed with 4% Hydroquinone. If you have never used Tretinoin/Retin A, you may want to start with 0.025%.

* My opinion is that Obagi is the way to go, however it is much more expensive than purchasing the 4% hydroquinone from Tara Skin Care. I switch back and forth between Obagi and TSC products. I then give my skin a break using only the LED Green Light followed with TIMELESS SKIN CARE PRODUCTS. I also Dermaroll 2x month (see my video tutorial HERE)

SUNSCREEN

Sunscreen is the most important product that you should use every day even if it's not sunny outside! When you are using all of these products to reverse the signs of aging, your skin will by hyper-sensitive to the sun! Without sunscreen you will cause more damage to your skin. I have started using Mineral Sunscreen on my face every day. Apply Mineral Sunscreen AFTER your serums and before your foundation. If you are using a chemical sunscreen, apply it before your serums.

* ALBA BOTANICA MINERAL SUNSCREEN SPF 30
