Once you have been diagnosed with Melasma, developing a customized treatment plan that works for your skin needs is the quickest way to treat it. It’s best to use a skincare routine with a combination of active ingredients. I recommend Glymed Plus to my patients because of the natural botanical ingredients. Some of the benefits of using Glymed Plus professional skincare are that the skincare products are:

Pregnancy safe-this is a significant benefit because we know that hormones play into melasma. As always, check with your doctor on any new product you use during pregnancy. 

Cruelty-Free Skincare is made from cleaner ingredients and is free of harsh chemicals like parabens. 

Pharmaceutical-grade ingredients offer more potent and increased active and results-driven ingredients for the best results.

Reduce Pigmentation to give your skin a more youthful, even skin-toned appearance.

Increased Hydration gives a more radiant glowing complexion that reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. 

The top three products from Glymed Plus I recommend for treating melasma are:

Oil-Free Protective Moisturizer with SPF50 is a lightweight formula that contains broad-spectrum protection against UVA and UVB rays. This sunscreen is an antiaging formula that protects the skin and reduces fine lines. Suitable for all skin types, including sensitive skin. This sunscreen does not leave your skin with a white cast. 

Diamond Bright Skin Illuminator has the latest technology that helps to brighten your complexion, get rid of dark spots, even out skin tone, and reveal a more youthful surface to the skin. It works on all skin types, and it’s safe to use during pregnancy. This product is known to cause sun sensitivity, so it’s essential to use sunscreen to act as a barrier between your skin and the sun. Apply this product to your face and neck for optimal results. 

Pigment Skin Brightening Serum promises to gradually fade melasma, age spots, and sunspots. This serum prevents pigmentation from forming on the skin and reduces current pigmentation and redness. Perfect for all skin types, including sensitive. It contains ascorbic acid, which is known to help brighten skin and fade dark patches.

Final thoughts

 A few tips to remember is to avoid waxing an area on the skin if you have melasma or hyperpigmentation. Waxing causes inflammation that can aggravate your skin and worsen melasma. 

Some research shows that Blue light activates melanin in the skin, which may worsen existing melasma, so always wear your sunscreen and think of it as an essential part of your skincare routine. 

The primary point to remember is that sunlight is not your friend. People can spend months working hard on their daily skincare routine only to see melasma return from spending too much time in the sun. If you are on vacation, remember to reapply your sunscreen frequently and wear a wide-brimmed hat to protect your skin. Consistency and commitment are essential to treat melasma and prevent it from returning. A good homecare regimen is 80% of your results, so developing a realistic routine for your lifestyle and skin goals is crucial.
