Glow Up, African Queens: Tackling Common Skin Issues

Hey there, beautiful people! We all know that every skin type is unique and stunning in its own way. But African skin has its own set of challenges. Let’s dive into three common skin issues that you might face and how to tackle them.


  1. Acne

Acne can be a real party pooper, right? It’s one of the main reasons people with darker skin tones go to see a doctor1. But don’t worry, we’ve got your back. When your skin is throwing a tantrum, Kojic acid with its anti-inflammatory property helps to prevent and cure post inflammatory hyperpigmentation caused by acne.2 Salicylic acid also works wonders by helping your skin get rid of dead cells, reducing redness and swelling.3 This not only cuts down on the number of pimples that pop up but also speeds up the healing process.


  1. Pigmentation Problems

Pigmentation issues can be a bit tricky. They can make your skin look uneven4. But guess what? There are ways to manage this too. Kojic acid, our earlier hero, also helps brighten the skin2. It works by slowing down the production of melanin, which is what gives our skin its color. So, if you’re dealing with dark spots or uneven skin tone, Kojic acid should be in your beauty arsenal.


  1. Dull Skin

Ever feel like your skin is as dry as the Sahara desert? Studies have shown that African skin has a much higher rate of losing water which makes it more prone to dryness5. And dry skin often looks dull. One of the ways to get your glow back is to exfoliate. You can read more about exfoliating here.
