Atilola Olajide’s skin

Hey Atilola, here are some insights based on the answers you gave us when you took our skin survey. The answers you provided really helped us to perfect the product – Base Plus was made with you in mind.

Uneven skin tone (patchy or hyperpigmented)

You mentioned that your current skin focus was Uneven Skin Tone. There are different types of hyper pigmentation, such as age spots, melasma, and post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation. The condition can be caused by anything from acne scars and sun damage to hormone fluctuations.

People sometimes opt for over the counter creams to treat this, containing lightening ingredients such as vitamin C, niacinamide or liquorice extract. Stronger agents should always be prescribed by a medical professional. 

People also commonly use at-home exfoliating products with AHAs or BHAs to help bring those dark skin cells to the surface. Sun exposure triggers melanin production, so people seeking to alleviate hyper pigmentation are often advised to wear sun screens or blocks to guard against the condition worsening, particular when using products containing lightening, brightening or exfoliating  ingredients.

We hope this information was useful and look forward to seeing what you create with us.
