Doctors have found that every type of skin experiences aging different as your genetic profile plays a role in aging.
As they age, people with this skin type typically experience rough patches of skin and hyperpigmentation, including dark under eye circles. These signs usually show up before crow’s feet and other types of lines and wrinkles appear.
With its anti-aging and anti-inflammatory formulation, Perricone MD Face Finishing Moisturizer may be well suited for this skin type.
Dr. Perricone attributes the appearance of rough patches and discoloration to inflammation. Also because of inflammation, he has seen a greater incidence of scarring in this skin type. Dr. Perricone recommends inflammation be minimized before it can cause scarring.
Moisturizers for dark skin should be chosen on a case by case basis, usually starting off with the lightest, non-greasy formulation. However, if dryness persists, use a simple, but richer product. Darker skin can respond very well to mild alpha hydroxy acids.
The anti-inflammatory effects of DMAE, alpha lipoic acid, and vitamin C ester can help reduce discoloration, rough patches, and scarring, as well as normalize oil gland activity.
Perricone MD Face Finishing Moisturizer includes these ingredients in its formulation to help provide antioxidant protection and impart a smooth, radiant appearance. Richer in texture, this is best for dryer skin types.
