Get A Patch Test Or Photo-Patch Test

This is one test that can change your life.

If you’ve had skin problems for years, a patch test is one of the most powerful tools to help you finally achieve clarity.

This painless procedure shows you exactly which ingredients or materials you, in particular, are sensitive or allergic to. A photo-patch test is similar but shows what is triggering your hyperpigmentation. The results from these tests can help you more accurately select products that do NOT cause your skin problems, and help you steer clear of ingredients (but also textiles, plants, and other substances) that you need to avoid, resulting in…

…no more (or far less frequent) redness, itching, and rashes;

…relief from chronically dry skin, scaling, and flaking;

…more consistent clarity in inflammatory skin conditions such as atopic dermatitis and psoriasis;

…clarity of acne (allergens don’t clog pores the way comedogens do, but can irritate pores, causing infection and acne);

…more effective lightening of dark spots, blotches, and larger areas of skin.

Choose Hypoallergenic Over Natural: 30-Day Healthy Skin Challenge

Some things in nature can hurt you.

Natural ingredients could be causing or worsening your acne, sensitive skin, psoriasis, eczema, or hyperpigmentations.

While natural is WONDERFUL — eating natural, less processed foods so important for your health and using skin care with more natural, less processed ingredients can also be good (chemicals used in processing can be even more allergenic than the ingredient itself), natural does not mean hypoallergenic…and many natural ingredients are common allergens.
