Pigmentation skin

Here is what we recommend for a full skincare routine for those who suffer from hyper-pigmentation skin. Please also read below the table addressing specific skin conditions and types relating to pigmentation.

*Like all of our products, please always do a trial test before starting a routine to check for sensitivity. Although it’s natural and organic, everyone has different sensitivity levels and it may not be suitable.

*If using the products for the first time, then start off with 2-3 products first and as the week goes by add a product to your routine. This allows the time for your skin to adjust and adapt.

*it is normal for skin to purge which can last from 2-5 weeks depending on individuals cell turn over. Purging is good as it pushes everything to the surface as it heals from underneath.

Morning routine

STEP 1

Start off with cleansing your face with our black box clear complexion bar or neem powder cleanser as a double cleanse. especially if you are wearing makeup. 

We suggest to cut the bar into 4-5 parts. This is to ensure that you do not contaminate the entire bar if you have got active acne or breakouts. This will help to the spread of bacterial. You would simple place the current cut our bar on the plastic tray provided in your skincare routine place, while the other parts can be wrapped up in the protective paper and put back into the box. Placed in a dry cool place.

STEP 2

Next step would be toning. We recommend our saffron toner. It is alcohol free saffron infused. A toner helps to clean deep within the pores and helps to take off any last bit of the cleanser. It also helps to balance out your skins PH level. For dry skin we would recommend you to use a toner every 2/3 times a week and not every day.

It is possible due to the ingredients and depending on how your skin is, it may sting, or feel tight.  Use your own initiative to avoid or to work around the extremely problematic areas.  You do not need to wash your face after toner. 

 At this point it is very normal for the skin to feel tight. As you would have just cleaned and taken off your natural oils from the skin. The skin needs a little time to re-produce that back, however there are things we can do to help.

STEP 3

To add hydration to the skin we suggest in using our Saffron Skin Quench. This is a plant based hyaluronic acid which adds hydration back into the skin. If applied on damp or wet skin, the hydration is absorbed faster in to the skin. However if your skin is dry you can skill apply this.OUR PRODUCT HAS 2% HA

STEP 4

This is going to be the most important part of the skincare routine. We recommend in using Saffron Gold.

This is a highly potent product. It is infused with saffron which helps to break down excess melanin production which has been caused un-naturally. Providing your lifestyle and diet is at a good standing. Saffron gold will help to fade darker areas over time. If the darker areas has been there for many years or is extremely dark, then it would take much longer to fade away. If its genetics then it’s the structure of your skin which no products can change. This is an eye serum. Do not apply it too close to the lash line as it spreads. Other common areas for pigmentation is around the mouth.

STEP 5

Depending on what your skin type is, you would now apply your facial elixir. For example :-

Dry normal to dry skin = black gold

Combination to oily skin = gold elixir

Sensitive skin = gold elixir

Acne/breakout skin = silver elixir

Mature retinal alternative = Bukuchi gold

 

We also mention not to layer products, what this means is:-

If you are using products from another brand, we do not know the percentage and if this will react with our products. Also if you are using any of our other products such as our facial elixir, then you would apply half a drop of the saffron gold (under the eye) let that absorb before applying the other elixir. Take it up to the edge of the saffron gold. This is to ensure each oil have sufficient amount of time to work its benefits, without having the structure of the oil change by overlapping other products. This may become too potent. However if you have trailed it out and you are not affected by it, then you can carry on

STEP 6

This is the final stage to your skincare routine and that is applying SPF 50.

Sun damage is the biggest culprit when it comes to dark spots on the skin and rubbery skin texture. SPF provides a barrier to stop the harmful UV rays penetration in to the skin. SPF should be used every day even if it’s not sunny.

What to Expect:-

-Possible skin purging, it is very normal for skin to break out further and rapidly whilst on this routine. However once the acne has been tackled and the skin under it starts to settle, clearer skin will begin to show.

-Possible reaction, as we do not dilute our ingredients it may be possible that you react to a certain ingredient, hence why a trial must be done. If you are having a reaction then please stop the use of that particular product. (may not be all)

-Results may take between 6-8 weeks

-Skin texture may chance from oily to dry, it may seem flaky. All this is normal as skin is simply trying to shed the acne prone layer or adjusting to it.

Night time routine

STEP 1

Start off with cleansing your face with our black box clear complexion bar or neem powder cleanser as a double cleanse. especially if you are wearing makeup.

STEP 2

Next step would be toning. We recommend our saffron toner. It is alcohol free saffron infused. A toner helps to clean deep within the pores and helps to take off any last bit of the cleanser. It also helps to balance out your skins PH level. For dry skin we would recommend you to use a toner every 2/3 times a week and not every day.

STEP 4

This is going to be the most important part of the skincare routine.  Apply saffron under eye gel for pigmentation, leave it on all night and then wash it off in the morning. 

STEP 5

This is going to be important part of the skincare routine. We recommend in using Bakuchi Gold.

 

 

Bakuchiol is the plant-based, natural alternative to Retinol. it benefits acne prone and ageing skin but without the negative side effects that retinol can have. These include dry and flaky skin, irritation, inflammation or increased photosensitisation. It is really for everyone, whether your skin is feeling; dry, oily, a little bit of both, sensitive or even normal. 

 

 

*important

If you are using these products for the first time, then we advise for you to gradually build up the routine. Such as, starting off with a morning routine for the first week and then judging by the skin attempt to add the night time routine second week onwards. This is because our skin needs time to adjust and accept new products. If you feel you wish to add another item such as saffron gold or a mask, we would strongly advice for you to only do that once your skin has calmed down. Usually with acne prone skin, they are sensitive and many things can trigger the break out. Changes must be implemented in stages.

Please also read below related to dry skin

Pigmentation and flaky skin recommendation:-

Same as above, the fully skincare routine. Use the saffron mask ones a week before the complexion bar to exfoliate the skin and to remove and dry dead skin on top. As a facial oil use black gold.

Dry Skin and pigmentation

Same as above, the full skincare routine. Add saffron gold application prior to applying Black gold.

  • Shake the saffron gold bottle
  • Apply ½ a drop on to the finger tips
  • Massage the finger tips together to have an even spread of the serum
  • Apply gently by patting under the eye areas or effected area only.
  • Wait for the serum to absorb before applying silver elixir to the rest of the face.

Pigmentation and wrinkles

Same as above, the full skincare routine. You may apply the black gold throughout the day to add extra moisture providing your skin is able to sustain it. Generally those who suffer with dry skin have more defined lines. Plump up your skin and think about adding the Bukuchi gold as a night time oil only replacing black gold.  

 

Pigmentation and sensitive skin.

With sensitive skin it is very unpredictable, as everyone’s sensitivity levels are different. With all of our products we always advice to do a 24 hour trial test to check of your skin reacts. If it doesn’t then you can continue to do the full routine as above, however we would say to half the amount of usage in product application. As it may be too strong for sensitive skin and it needs longer to adjust. For sensitive skin we recommend gold elixir as a facial oil.

Pigmentation and oily skin.

Same as above, the full skincare routine. We would recommend adding gold elixir as your facial oil. As you have oily skin you will be able to use the toner on a daily basis. You can also use the mask every 3rd day instead of once a week.

Pigmentation and mature skin

Same as above, the full skincare routine. You may want to look into investing in Black gold for during the day and Bukuchi Oil for night, which is our retinol alternative. It gives you all the benefits of retinol but without the harsh side effects. We would suggest this to be added at night time instead of the silver elixir again. This should be only added to your routine once your skin has adapted to the routine and is ready to implement new products.  

Do I have to get all the products mentioned?

No. However in order to have a more realist result it is advised to complete each step.

 Less product = less result.

If you are looking for some key items then we would say complexion bar, Saffron toner and Saffron Gold.
