My name is Ana, I’m from the Republic of Moldova but I have been living in Ireland with my beautiful family for over 6 years. I have been working in Mint nearly 3 years. I met the most wonderful team here, the best team I have ever worked with. But today I want to talk about something that most women live with – Skin Issues. Some have acne, some have Rosacea and for me it’s Pigmentation. I have suffered with Pigmentation for more than 9 years now, since becoming a mum for the first time.
So, what is hyperpigmentation?
Hyperpigmentation is a common skin condition and affects people of all skin types. It occurs when the skin produces more melanin. This can make spots or patches of skin appear darker than surrounding areas. Did you know there are actually various types of pigmentation: freckles, sun damages, melasma or post inflammatory?
During the summer, autumn and wintertime it is not bad or I would like to think it’s not bad, but after a first few days with sun in the start of spring. My butterfly mask starts to take on more colour, and more, and more. My face may not have been exposed to the sun or I have not have a tan on my face, but my pigmentation blooms enough to make me embarrassed. I really love spring and I can’t wait for it to come but because of my discoloration I can’t enjoy it as much as I want.
Over the years, I used different brands of serums, moistures, cleansers, exfoliators and treatments but nothing helped to reduce my pigment as much as Alumier MD. I really saw a significant difference after I started using Alumier MD homecare products and treatments (Glow Peel). Even when the Spring starts to approach the spots don’t become as dark because Sheer Hydration physical SPF is doing its job perfectly.
With all that said nothing compared to my laser treatment. I was shocked with the results. The Pigments are broken down and eliminated through the body’s lymphatic system. A week after my treatment with Sheila, I understood that this was what I needed. I still need treatments but at the end of my course I now know this will all be a memory.
