I wanted to share a new product I used to treat dark spots. Glutathione supplements helped even my skin tone after a terrible and spontaneous acne breakout.
What is hyperpigmentation?
Hyperpigmentation is a term used to describe dark spots that can appear in small areas or all over the body. Dark spots, or hyperpigmentation occur when excess melanin is produced in the skin. There are three main types: melasma, sunspots and post inflammatory hyperpigmentation.
Melasma: is believed to be caused by hormonal changes during pregnancy. This can appear on the stomach and face.
Sunspots: is caused by excess sun exposure over time. These spots appear to areas most exposed by the sun.
Post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation: The most common type is acne and can result from damage or inflammation to the skin.
What is Glutathione?
Glutathione is an antioxidant already found in your cells which functions to combat free radicals. Free radicals are unstable atoms that can damage cells in your body. Glutathione in the body helps get rid of the free radicals and detoxify chemicals. When chemicals or hormones are out of balance in the body, that can cause acne. Glutathione supplements get rid of free radicals that are caused from the imbalance. When we have a breakout causing dark spots, glutathione converts excess melanin to a lighter color by deactivating the enzyme “tyrosinase,” which produces the pigment.
Why I Decided to Try It
I’ve had acne since middle school and I have tried every product and remedy combination out there. As an adult, I’ve been able to keep my breakouts under control and I think I mainly grew out of my acne phase thankfully. However, about two months ago, my forehead exploded with pimples and I couldn’t resist the urge, so I popped, picked and scraped which left me with tons of dark spots and acne scars. I just happened to be on Instagram when I somehow discovered glutathione supplements. After doing my research, I went on Amazon and ordered them right away. Within one week of taking the supplements I can honestly say my blemishes were clearing up. Since I have tried several topical remedies it didn’t hurt to try a supplement this time around and it did exactly what I needed it to do. I finished the entire bottle and I do plan on trying them in the future. I won’t make them a regular part of my routine so that my body doesn’t get immune to them and stop working. Please be advised that this is my personal experience and I can not guarantee the same results. Please use this information coupled with your own research to make the best decision.
