Want To Clear Up That Hyperpigmentation? Try Evidence Skincare From Down Under!By Delaina Dixon | July 29, 2020 | Beauty
Finding a skincare regimen that fights aging and issues for brown-gal skin like hyperpigmentation isn’t always easy. So we jumped for joy when we heard about Evidence Skincare. Based out of Australia, ESK uses key active ingredients like Retinol and Vitamin C that can be beneficial for darker skin when administered in the right doses. And you can take a quiz online to find out which skincare regimen is right for you!
We reached out to Dr. Ginni and the ESK team to get advice on the best products to try to even out skin tone and bring back its natural glow!
Why did you create this skincare system?
As a doctor, whenever I appear on TV to talk about health issues, there are two things that are always on my mind: What does the evidence say and how can I translate that into something that is usable? With skin that was not great to start with and one that wasn’t getting any younger, I was looking for a good skincare regime, one that was evidence-based and effective, and because I so often feel time pressured, one that’s both quick and easy to use. No matter how may products I tried, I could not find ones that met those criteria. More frustratingly, what I found mostly were companies using marketing pseudo-science targeting the insecurities of their audience.
ESK only uses ingredients and formulations which have been proven repeatedly in independent clinical trials to reduce the signs of aging and protect, smooth and nourish your skin, so you can put your best face forward. Our face creams and serums are pH balanced and use the exact ingredients that have shown to work – not the cheaper, less effective versions.
What are some of the best products for darker and brown-colored skin?
Our “Smooth Serum” (Alpha Hydroxy acid daily exfoliation serum) used in combination with “Ultimate A” (Vitamin A and B3) based night cream, have been particularly good for darker skin. While highly effective for reducing excessive oil production, reducing acne and pore size, the combination also has strong evidence for helping aging skin. Importantly, none of our products risk negative pigmentation changes often associated with some of the more aggressive treatments available.
What’s your top product to fight hyperpigmentation in dark skin?
Having to choose that is like having to choose between favorite children! But if pushed, I would say first would be “Enlighten” closely followed by “Ultimate A+” and then “Smooth Serum.” And it should be pointed out that when targeting hyperpigmentation, the best results come from targeting multiple pathways (achieved by using the above combination) at the same time.
What are some of the best use practices of ESK Skincare products?
We started with a focus on anti-aging and continue to get terrific feedback from our customers, a majority of whom are looking to age gracefully. But what is even more fulfilling is hearing from customers who have suffered for years with skin conditions like acne, rosacea and hyperpigmentation until finding ESK. It’s not curing cancer, but hearing from customers who are amazed and delighted with the changes that Evidence Skincare helped them achieve usually has us doing high-fives.
