Avoid oily skin with this product however it is excellent for postmenopausal as it lightens pigmentation and increase circulation ridding the skin of ruddy inflammation. Also great for summer season because most clients like to stay away from hydroquinone. This product is customizable and made fresh per client. Hydroquinone can be added to the product. These pigment treating pads are incredible for inflammatory skin that suffers from post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation. Most lightening products have side effects of dryness or irritation, but this product does quite the opposite. It keeps the skin calm while gently delivering this powerful lightening ingredients in. We recommend our clients use one pad (both sides) on their skin right after cleansing in the PM. It feels soothing and hydrating when client swipes the pad all over their skin. Ask them to allow it to absorb all of the way (recommend brushing their teeth during the wait time) then follow with the rest of their nighttime regiment. If we are treating melasma, we will have them use it in the morning regiment too.
