Tackling Melasma: My Cosmelan Experience

Melasma: if you have it, you know the struggle. I first started noticing dark spots on my face when I was twenty-seven years old. I had one little dark spot under my right eye & thought “oh, aging”… it happens to the best of us! However, a year later, the one dark spot turned into a face full of dark patches. I didn’t know it was called Melasma at the time, I just knew my face was covered in discoloration and my self-esteem really took a hit.

How I Celebrate Happy Hour With My Dogs

How I Celebrate Happy Hour With My Dogs

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of ZippyPaws. The opinions and text are all mine. Where are all my dog lovers at? If you didn’t raise your hand, we can’t be friends.
