Nurturing Melanated Skin

From sun-kissed tawny to cosmically blessed onyx, melanin keeps your skin glowing and protected year-round.

Those of us of a darker extraction are more prone to PIH (post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation) caused by acne and injury, melasma, eczema and chronic dryness, rosacea, and more.

Skin with melanin deserves safe, effective care that feels alluring and awakens the senses.

Here are some steps to incorporate into your beauty routine to ensure that your melanin always shines through:

Wear Sunscreen

Skin with melanin loves the sun but UV rays can cause premature aging, darken hyperpigmentation, and put melanated women at a risker for melanoma and other sun-related diseases. Protect yourself by using a chemical-based sunscreen (no white-purple cast) that prevents UV rays from deeply penetrating your skin.

Use a Gentle Cleanser

Harsh cleansers have a higher risk of leaving skin dry and irritated which can lead to disrupting the skin barrier and chronic inflammation. Whether you are using a milk, gel, or cream-based cleanser, look for ingredients like bisabolol, panthenol, or plant extracts that have calming effects.

Add an Exfoliating Toner to Your Routine

After cleansing, the skin is typically around 8 or 9 on the pH scale which is high. To bring back to an optimal pH of 5 or even 6, a toner is used. Using an exfoliating toner deep cleans your pores thus preventing acne, fades dark marks, and renews the skin’s surface. Look for a toner that utilizes both fruit sugar acids (AHAs) and salicylic acids (BHAs) for combined surface renewal and a deep cleansing of pores.

Address Your Skin’s Concern

Whether its hyperpigmentation or acne, use a serum or spot treatment that will help you reach your skin goals before applying a thicker moisturizer. Pat serums into your skin to increase suppleness and absorption.

Indulge in a Good Moisturizer

An occlusive moisturizer or facial elixir places a barrier over your skin, allowing spot treatments and serums to go to work beneath the surface. Look for a moisturizer that also addresses your skin concerns and that works together with your serum.

At YESHAYA Beauty, we have crafted every product with your hue in mind, using safe ingredients and time-tested rituals.
