A Skin Toner for Black Women that Actually Works

Let’s make one thing clear, skin toners are supposed to even out your skin tone, meaning; they should help lighten dark spots, so you’re skin looks brighter and more even without makeup.

A Skin Toner for Black Women that Actually Works

Acne, sun exposure and even scars can cause extreme discoloration on our skin.

Fact: When you get a scar on your face, or when you pop a pimple, and it leaves a mark; for Black women, our skin does not only regenerate cells to heal that scar, but melanocytes ( melanocytes produce melanosomes, which contain melanin) also regenerate, which is why a lot of the times, scars on our body may heal, but a dark spot is left behind.

Problem: Most toners are not created for African American skin, which is why most of us either buy them and stop using them, or don’t bother at all. As a result, instead of evening out our skin, they can irritate our skin, or leave our skin feeling very dry.

Truth: The truth is that in order for a toner to really “tone” African American skin, it must be able to block some melanin production. This is why most toners do not work for Black skin; they don’t  block the melocytes in our skin from producing more melanin, IN ANY WAY!

Solution: We all need and DESERVE a good toner that actually works.  SkinPhD Renaissance is changing the game when it comes to toners for us.  This toner is one of the few that actually works, and that  not only tones our skin tone, but also helps block melanocytes (by 68%) from creating worst dark spots on our faces.

NiacinamideSkinPhD’s Renaissance Even Tone Day Serum has Niacinamide in it. Niacinamide, in layman’s terms, is  a form of vitamin B3.  It helps stimulate microcirculation underneath the skin’s surface; it’s even used to treat acne.

Kalahari Melon: the gift for your skin from the deserts of Africa

kalaharimelonOil from the seeds of the Kalahari melon is used to moisturize, regenerate and restructure the skin. Kalahari melon oil is rich in essential fatty acids, especially linoleic, oleic and palmitic fatty acids. It has high antioxidant activity, which possibly helps the plant to survive in the harsh Kalahari desert environment.

Our cosmetic scientists in South Africa have long known the restoring properties of Kalahari Melon extract along with the many other elements from nature on the Continent. Of course, Africa is rich with many indigenous plants and fruits whose extracts are unparalleled for skin restoration and repair. You will find these “gifts” from Africa used throughout our skin care collections. Our Renaissance® Restoring Night Cream includes the healing antidote from nature for damaged and aging skin–Kalahari Melon–along with Mongongo Nut Oil and Rhodiola Extract.

About the Kalahari Melon
The Kalahari melon (citrullus lanatus) is also known as the Tsamma melon or wild watermelon and is the biological ancestor of the common watermelon now found worldwide. It is a creeping annual herb with hairy stems and bright yellow flowers. Unlike the common watermelon, whose flesh is sweet and red, the Kalahari melon’s juicy flesh is pale yellow or green, and tastes bitter. Kalahari melon fruits are small and round in the wild, but larger and oval when cultivated. The Kalahari melon is highly adapted to surviving drought and the harsh light of the desert environment. Although found all over Southern Africa, it is most closely associated with the Kalahari sands of Namibia, Botswana, south-western Zambia and western Zimbabwe.
