I researched and googled into the night.
Some people on several forums came to the same conclusions (although they are skincare forums not Health Forums ) and some people are using stuff like Lotramin and Canesten on their melasma...and seeing it fade bigtime
So. Two days ago I tried it.
And it's lightened by I'd say ten percent. I can't say for sure that is what it is. I am not using any other topicals. Not even Castor oil or Kojic Acid.
I went from crying about it two days ago to minimal make up and just saying "F@*K it" and being myself and doing the thing.(with sunblock of course)
I think the adage "your attitude determines your altitude" is really how life works. I began a meditation program that focuses on positive thinking for good health. Last night I listened to the meditation for 2 hours. I awoke feeling serene and some how satisfied I knew the answers.
I went and bought some hemp seed oil to add to my corrective regime.
I didn't know the sag and loss of muscle tone in my face was a sign of AF.
When I was really sick last year and the year before my face was thin and drawn. I ate little (as I didn't know what to eat, i was allergic to so much) and I was shoveling snow 12-14 hrs a day. My poor adrenal glands. What was I doooing???
I have gained volume and my skin is firmer now. I just thought it was the weight loss. Now I know it was more than that!
I feel the ground gaining firmness beneath me. I'm getting somewhere, it's just taking forever!
