If you suffer from brown spots on your skin, you know that finding a good melasma treatment can be a difficult challenge. Cosmetic procedures can be very expensive, and if the dermatologist or spa technician is honest with you, they will tell you that most of them are not recommended for melasma.
So many beauty creams abound, some of which, such as those containing hydroquinone, can even be dangerous to your health! It can be a frustrating process of trial and error to find a cream that works for you. And even then, you may find that the cream fades your brown spots, but not completely. And you will also probably notice that after a period of relief, your melasma returns to haunt you again.
To fight your melasma, you will need to do more than use one cream. For the best results, you can supplement your cream with simple, natural and little known remedies. Some of these are things you can buy at the store and add to your cream, some are things you can buy at the store and apply to your face before and after your cream, and some are nutritional supplements you can take internally.
MSM is a nutritional supplement you can buy at the drugstore. Containing a natural sulfur, it supplements the diet with the sulfur that is found some fruits and veggies, a nutrient many of us may not be getting enough of. MSM is very good for the skin, as you take it internationally, it begins softening the skin over your entire body. MSM also improves the health of your hair and nails. If you have joint pain, it may provide some relief there as well. Some who take MSM also notice that scars are naturally lightened and reduced.
Some melasma sufferers have found MSM supplements to offer them a complete cure! Personally, I noticed that my own melasma appeared after I had stopped taking MSM, and I did not know at the time the connection between the two. Adding MSM to your daily melasma treatment can be a very powerful and positive element. Start out with 1 to 2 grams a day, and see how your body reacts to it. Some people may find they are going to the bathroom more frequently, until their body adjusts.
Some melasma sufferers will megadose with MSM, up to 8 grams a day. If you plan to do this, work up to it gradually. Take Vitamin C with your MSM, as it enhances the results.
Using MSM internally can very possibly enhance the results of your melasma treatment routine. Remember, these spots always want to come back, so even after your melasma is gone, keep treating your skin a couple of times a week, and do not forget to take your MSM.
For your complete melasma treatment system, use a potent, natural lightening cream with antioxidants on your skin, and supplement this with certain other ingredients you can find at your supermarket and drugstore. In several weeks to just a couple of months, you can get rid of the brown spots on your skin, and enjoy a fresh, natural, glowing, healthy face.
