Question: I need help with dark spots and sensitivity!

I am a 20-year-old student, I have very sensitive and dry skin and I have dark spots which I've been trying to treat. However, most of the products I've used are too harsh and irritate my skin, causing rashes and inflammation. Can you please advise me on an effective product that is not harsh on my skin and that can help me get rid of these dark spots?

Answer

Thank you for your question. What you are describing to me are the typical complaints of someone who is battling with a skin that has an impaired barrier. And unfortunately, once the barrier is “broken”, it doesn’t matter what you try to do or treat on the skin, nothing is going to work because that skin is just too sensitive and cannot handle anything active. So what we have to do is FIRST fix that barrier so that your skin can properly heal and recover, and then you can start using more active products and treatments and focus on specific concerns. In my experience the best thing for you to do is to get yourself onto barrier restoring products that are going to moisturise the skin while calming it down. I would highly recommend Lamelle’s Serra range. It has been specifically formulated for repairing such skins. You will need to stay on this for about 3 months before we start looking at any other products or treatments for you. Your skin needs to heal and be strong again before you do anything else to it.
