Who It's For

Anyone with brown spots, melasma, sun damage, and any pigment excess problems.  It is especially helpful for those people who are allergic too or get irritated by anything with the "bleaching" ingredient hydroquinone in it. 

Dr. Irwin's Product Review

For those those of us with melasma, or a lot of sun damage, there really is no true cure.  But there is good control. Hydroquinones are the key active ingredient in all the prescription versions (4%) and most of the drugstore lightening creams (2%). Finally there is a plant based alternative that works almost as well.  

If you have pigment problems, you must wear  an 18-20% zinc containing sunscreen every day, and wear a brimmed hat whenever outdoors! 

How to Use

Start by applying under your moisturizer and vitamin A cream (retinol or tretinoin) at night.  If you are tolerating well, try increasing it to twice a day.

SkinTour's Philosophy:
Skincare is your best
investment
One of the best investments in your skin is your daily skincare. Why? Because you can prevent many problems with blotchy skin color, lack of glow, texture, some types of acne, and fine lines with good skincare products. You can also correct some of these problems with effective skincare products. Great skincare is often more expensive because quality ingredients are expensive. Some companies spend on research/development which benefits all of us and adds to the cost. Are they worth it? In general - yes!
