“Being of mixed descent and growing up in the Caribbean, I struggled with hyperpigmentation and melasma for most of my life. After medical school, I switched to strictly mineral sunscreens. But I didn’t stop there, I started on a routine which included Vitamin C, tranexamic acid and prescription strength retinoids along with regular in office chemical peels. Tip: Photofacials are also great for hyperpigmentation!
