When I have good skin, I enjoy good mood.
When I turned 30 last year, I started to observe some minor dark spots under my eyes, which totally freaked me out over this new age bracket. I didn't realize that I had been skipping sunscreen for outdoor time or used any unique products to prevent or treat the potential hyperpigmentation. Not until I met Dr. Heather, the founder of Specific Beauty, I started this amazing Specific Beauty journey to fight against aging and multi-hues.
After I attended a beauty presentation by Dr. Heather last fall, I learned that my dark spots came from not only the sun exposure on the beach but also my unique ethnic background. I would like to share my "23andMe" Report with you all (I am Chinese obviously...) For women of color like me, we are easily over-producing melanin on our skin, the hyper-pigmentation depending on each one of the origins. Sounds scary but there are solutions to save the skin. Dr. Heather designed the brand "Specific Beauty" to treat rick complexions of women coming from ethnic backgrounds.
Interestingly, I have African and Yakut ancestors.
For the brightening system, I particularly love the three products - dark spot corrector, skin brightening serum and lighten & brighten eye cream.
- Brightening Serum: This one is amazingly rich but not oily at all. I have very dry skin that constantly need moisturizing in the morning, before bed, before I start to do makeup. But After using this serum, my skin starts to be brightened while it's still hydrated. My previous whitening products are as hydrating as this one.
- Dark Spot Corrector: This corrector is to lift the dark spots. I applied it after the corrector pads. The corrector works on my skin for the whole night. After 14 days, I see the two dark spots under my eyes were lifted - one even totally disappeared. But this is limited to a certain period of time. For long-term, maybe using sunscreen everyday will be helpful to prevent melanin deposits.
- Lighten & Brighten Eye Cream: The cream is very gentle and spreadable. I love this eye cream that it smoothes my under-eye skin without causing irritation. It improves my overall eye skin not just its uneven tone.
