In a market which for years has developed a one fits all approach, latina skin has been neglected. Latina Skin ages very well I must say , unfortunately we suffer from other skin conditions which have not been addressed until now.
You see Global Skincare products not only address wrinkles and fine lines it also focuses on the skin conditions that affect latina skin such as hyperpigmentation,acne, uneven tones which are more prevalent in latinas.
Allow me to share with you my review of Global Skincare‘s Natural Corrective System which helps to clear hyperpigmentation.
As I gotten older I began to notice more dark spots on my checks, las famosas manchas as they are commonly known.
So lets talk about what is Hyperpigmentation?
Hyperpigmentation can appear during pregnancy and after 35 its a condition in which patches of skin become darker in color than the surrounding skin. This occurs when an excess of melanin, the brown pigment that produces normal skin color. forms deposits in the skin.
Retain-A has been prescribed to me in the past unfortunately does more harm than good in the Arizona Heat. Global Skincare recommended I use Vitamin -C Serum which not only made my skin glow but help lighten the pigment.
This does not come with the kit you can purchase separate. What comes in the Natural Corrective System are

How to use the products :
First start with the Gentle Facial Cleanser first use lukewarm water then lather your cleanser on to skin and massage in circular motion for 60 seconds and then rinse.
Next step is to us the Anit-Ox Toner – I must confess I always miss this step. The best way to apply toner is with a cotton pad. Start from the inside of your forehead, cheeks and chin and sweep the pad out.
Now your ready for your Ultra Lightener Revitalizing Cream use in the morning and evening. If your going to use the Vitamin -C Serum apply it first because it absorbs into the skin. The moisturizer follows and “locks in” that serum apply in in an upward motion.
Allow to the product to absorb on to the skin and then use your Anti-Ox Sun Gel before applying your makeup.
Night time routine is as follows after your apply your toner you will apply the Ultra Lightening Serum to be used only in dark spots or patches let it absorb then apply the Ultra Lightener Revitalizing Cream , do not use the Anti-Ox Sun Gel.
Since your are using lighting serums you need to be careful not to be exposed to the sun. Use an Umbrella or Hat when outdoors.
These products have worked for me and my hyperpigmented skin and I recommend them to you. I also recommend to consult with a professional prior using any regimen. And remember sharing is caring.
Until next time,
