Skin is common to all. It’s the largest organ of our body acting as the first barrier of defense against germs, bacteria, environmental pollutants and more. Your healthy skin keeps you safe, happy and beautiful. Having said this, there are variations in aging patterns, melanin content, sensitivity levels and generalized skin concerns across different population demographics.
Which 2 major skin concerns does the ethnic population face? How does one deal with these issues?
Beauty expert, Eunice Cofie- often noted as the modern-day, Madame C.J. Walker and President of Nuekie – an ethnic dermatology company says-, “Two major skin concerns in the ethnic population is post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation and acne. Post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH) can be caused by acne scaring, wounds, and any inflammatory response in the skin. A great way to control acne and prevent PIH is to use a good skincare line created for ethnic skin which contains alpha hydroxy acids and beta hydroxy acids such as glycolic acid or salicylic acid. The ethnic consumer should use a skin brightener for the areas in which they have PIH to create a more even skin tone. Also, they should follow-up with a good moisturizer and sunscreen with an SPF 15 on a daily basis to prevent further discoloration.”
