Common Skincare Issues for Melanated Skin

Posted by Camille Smith on

Over time people face several challenges when it comes to their skin. Melanated skin has unique challenges that are not experienced by other skin types, including hyperpigmentation, dryness, and dullness. With proper care and the right products, these issues can be managed and often alleviated, revealing glowing, beautiful skin.



Hyperpigmentation is a common condition in which patches of skin become darker than the normal surrounding skin. Hyperpigmentation can happen anywhere on the face or body. Although hyperpigmentation can affect almost any skin type, it can be prominent in Black skin and is often a result of excess melanin production, which is caused by anything from sun damage and hormone fluctuations to acne scars. Treatments for hyperpigmentation include retinol, such as our NGHT CRM: Vitamin A Treatment that transforms skin while you sleep. 


Melanated skin may experience more dryness in the fall and winter months, especially in those who live in a colder climate; research shows that Black skin may lose moisture faster than lighter skin tones. Skincare products that contain humectants are recommended for the face and body because they retain moisture and prevent tightness. Our MSTRZR: Balancing Moisture Cream is ideal for protecting the skin in the winter months. It contains glycerin (a natural humectant) and shea butter which gently moisturizes the skin.


As we age, our skin can begin to lose its luster. Environmental factors, lifestyle choices, and dehydration can all contribute to dullness in Black skin. Using products that hydrate the skin can revive the complexion and give you a healthy glow. Our SRM: Vitamin C Serum contains hydrating hyaluronic acid and illuminates and hydrates the skin year-round. Vitamin C Serum also brightens the skin and protects against skin damage caused by harmful free radicals and sun exposure.
