I must admit when I first started out using lightening creams I was skpetical that anything natural would make a difference.
In my mind dramatic results for any area of body appearance were only achieved through real medicine.
My parents heavily discouraged me from using chemically-laden whitening creams, such as those with Hydroquinone in, and after some research I am glad I didn’t go that route.
One thing I find is that you can always tell when a person has used chemical products because the skin looks sick and lacks that natural glow.
I haven’t been using Meladerm that long, in fact the first cream I used was skin bright, and I still use that as my daily cream today.
I started Meladerm, however, around 3 months ago, and I have been very pleased with the results.
Funnily I use it on my elbows and knees, as these are two areas that seem to get darker and rougher as I get older. The skin is notably softer and lighter, blending in nicely with the rest of my legs and arms.
I also use Meladerm on the hyperpigmentation on my upper cheeks that leads to near my eye area. This has been a real problem for me since my teens, and I am now 31.
It has definitely made a difference, and my friends say they cant see the pigmentation anymore, although I can see it when I look closely but I’m probably just being paranoid.
The cream is perfectly safe to use of prolonged periods of time so I will carry on as normal for a few more months and then take a break.
How Meladern Works
Meladerm works by suppressing the melanin in the skin, and controls melanosomes and enzyme tyrosinase, which are responsible for skin pigmentation.
It uses natural pigmentation controlling ingredients as follows:
- Kojic Acid
- Alpha Arbutin
- Mulberry Extract
- Bearberry Extract
- Licorice Extract
- Lemon Juice Extract
Meladern can be used for the following:
- Age / Liver spots / Sun spots
- Melasma / Chloasma
- Acne Marks
- Old scars
- Dark underarms, elbows, knees
- General skin lightening
Melademn has a good reputation, and was the “2015 Beauty With Science Winner” in the best over-the-counter skin lightener category.
But be careful not to buy Melederm instead of Meladerm. These products are completely different. Melederm with two “e’s” contains dangerous chemicals such as Hydroquinone.
The company that produce Meladerm (with an “a”) offer a 30-day trial for new customers, but be aware this is only available from the site, which you can visit here.
