THE 4 MAIN ISSUES THAT PLAGUE MELANIN RICH SKIN
Xcape by Edith Delight is a natural skin care product, designed specifically for Melanin rich skin. Following 7 years of clinical research in the tropics, the founder Edith Delight has come up with a range of formulas to solve the 4 pertinent issues that distress people with melanin rich skin.
1. Hyperpigmentation: occurs when the skin produces more melanin. This can make spots or patches of the skin appear darker than surrounding areas, resulting in an uneven skin tone. The common causes are sun damage, exposure to harsh weather conditions, the use of toxic carcinogenic skin care products, inflammation, or other skin injuries, including those related to acne.
2. Surface dehydration: occurs when the protective uppermost layer of the skin, known as the stratum corneum, is lacking in moisture. It simply means that your skin is lacking water. The skin can be dry, itchy and dull looking. Your overall tone and complexion may appear uneven, dark circles under your eyes and an increased appearance of wrinkles.
3. Weak elasticity: Sun exposure, ageing and the use of toxic skin care products play a major role in thinning the surface layer of the skin (Epidermis) hence, weak elasticity. This causes the skin to hang loosely, become more transparent and fragile. From around the age of 25 the first signs of aging start to become apparent on the surface of the skin. It is very important to start taking care of your skin before the aging signs appear.
4. Overactive sebaceous activity: The Sebaceous glands secrete an oily substance called sebum which helps to protect the skin from the outside environment. However, the over production of sebum can contribute to several problems, including acne, oily skin (especially the T-zone), or an oily scalp. The production of sebum is completely natural and cannot be stopped but it must be controlled.
