I have senstive, fair, dry to normal skin and I developed dark patches along the bone line under both eyes about 8 months ago. (I think it's melasma) I am 26 years old, and I am desperately trying to figure out how to get rid of them!!! I ordered Skinceuticals C E Ferulic, but saw that the Phloretin CF is good for hyperpigmentation. Can I switch off using one then the other every morning? I use Retin-A every few nights and I wear Murad Day Perfecting Cream SPF 30 every day.
Do you have any other tips?! I'm so careful in the sun, but I'm horribly self conscious about this problem!!
I’m going to send you to several places on the site. An article on Melasma in Depth and then the blog content with questions from other readers on melasma. I think you’ll find them helpful. Also see under the blog content Pigment Problems and Brown Spots. There may be good information for you there also! Dr. I
