Episode 12: Hyperpigmentation Solutions - Age Spots, Melasma and More

Many people struggle with age spots, melasma, and issues from hyperpigmentation. It's important to understand how these issues occur, the role of melanocytes in hyperpigmentation, and how to cure these issues without using chemicals that will make them worse.

On this show, I talk about what hyperpigmentation means, how melanocytes work, and what causes age spots, liver spots, and melasma. I'll also go over the treatments to avoid and adopt in order to cure your skin from the root cause of these issue. I hope this episode helps you gain an appreciation for skin's melanin and body's ability to heal.
