Questions and Answers

How do I improve my skin to look younger?

I have wrinkles and pigmentation also a thin skin. I have tried: Anti aging cream. I think it was caused by: 40 years of age

By answering your asked question, we would like to turn your attention, first of all, to the causes of pigmentation appearing on your skin, which may include the following:

  • aging;
  • solar radiation (this is also called "insolation");
  • hormonal changes;
  • medications;
  • cosmetic substances.

Before following any procedures to remove the pigmentation, you have to consult a physician, endocrinologist, and gynecologist (for women) or urologist (for men). There is also a low possibility of the original cause of pigmentation being your psychological state, which is affected by the stress that you encounter in your life: not being able to recognized, not being able to affirm yourself, dignity being hurt, etc.

When speaking about methods of concealing pigmentation and wrinkles, BB ("beauty balm" or "blemish balm") creams and concealers should be mentioned, which hide both pigmentation and wrinkles. You can, for example, look at the product line by Marcelle or at this Physician's Formula BB Concealer. Both Marcelle and Physician's Formula never test their products on animals.
