From a client:

I just received an order from your UK dealer. I bought, among other items, a jar of Anti-inflammatory Cream, and I'm very astonished. I've got atopic dermatitis (on my face, neck, hands, arms, shoulder...) since I was child and I've used much of different topical corticosteroids and I feel that they have lost their effectiveness for my skin. I put Anti-inflammatory Cream to eczemas and it relieved itching and erythema immediately after one apply, wow!

I found the same thing when I had a small rash over the summer and posted about it. Anti-inflammatory is great!

My daughter is 18. Her eczema flared up during freshman college year. Dream cream made a big difference.
Do you have any new information or actives for depigmentation? She has big white spots because of scratching, not because of corticosteroids.
Is collagen serum good for eczema?

Whatever the cause for depigmentation, I would first try UV repair cream and give it 2 months.
Next stop: collagen serum. Not formulated for eczema but contains everything that may help skin (and melanocytes) get back in shape.

We are assuming that there is no history of vitiligo.  I have no family history of vitiligo but did get a lot of damage in the lab, thanks to a macho attitude that permeates scientists. The result is a sprinkle of hyperpigmentation and hypopigmentation. Machismo is costly!

Thank you! Keep in touch and we can always try to find other actives to help with the process.  But we must remember that is the skin has reacted to one type of stress with de-pigmentation, it may do the same for other types of stress. So do NOT for laser of any other high energy methods.

Most of us, parents, go through the same process. Most teenagers are afflicted by acne, and we get desperate and go for "fast" solutions, except that they are not solutions. Then we go through years of acne misery and finally scars.

It is important to equip our children with the tools to appreciate that there is more to a person than the beauty. A good start is to look for the mug shots of celebrities because they show the person without the make-up, so you can see that below the make-up Justin Bieber has some significant acne.

Her skin expresses what she cannot express in words.
I myself got acne in late 30s due to stress.All my knowledge started from trying to help myself with that.
I never knew that the skin responds to stress with depigmentation or hyperpigmentation...this is very good to know, it normalises the condition, which in turn helps reduce the stress.
My daughter is more of a tomboy and doesn't take much care of herself,I know, moms complain of the opposite...
Now she has a new tool: Skinactives,THANK YOU.

Hi, Hannah,
You suggested UV and dream cream for my daughter's eczema and depigmentation and to get back to you in 2 months.

Her skin is doing very well, although she was on the beach and in the pool more days than not. The depigmentation lessened a little.
Thank you and good luck with all your research.
Please let me know of any new discovery you make regarding depigmentation.

About hyperpigmentation: I am using the UV cream sporadically but planning to be more consistent. Besides Sun damage I have dark spots from acne or from irritation around hair folicles. Should I add the Arbutin cream on these spots?

No need for arbutin. Are you using Vitamin A cream at night?

Collagen serum and vitamin A cream should clear those eventually, especially that the UV repair cream also works on them.
