    Hi Eva, Ive been prescribed by my dr., hydroquinone 8%, dimenthicone 1%; and retinol 0.5. Would it be healthy for me to also use your mandelic acid scrub? Im 51 menopausal, very black skin, blackheads around lower jaw area only-sides of jaw, combo/oily skin with thickened skin where the blackheads are on my lower jaw area. Large pores on cheeks, slow cell turnover on my face, blackhead scars. I use Murad pore reform kit in addition to the 2 products above. I know its best to send a photo, but my only question right now is if its fine or un-wise to use the mandelic acid scrub with the prescribed meds. TY!

      Dear Karen:
      First, thanks for your interest in my products. So here’s my most honest and sincere answer. I don’t recommend you purchase my mandelic acid treatment line, when using a number of other products, and while being under the care of a physician. I really believe that it is best to use one therapeutic treatment line at a time. What happens often, when using different products by differing formulators of these products, is that it can cause more harm than good. The ingredients in one product might counteract the other, or cause some kind of irritation or dryness when different products are mixed together. I recommend using one line at a time and figuring out what works or does not work for you. I am HUGELY against any product that contains hydroquinone. Please do your research. It is linked to carcinogens. Please do consult your physician about it. Even in small doses, I don’t recommend it. So for now, yes, I don’t recommend purchasing my AHA Mandelic Acid line. If what your doctor has prescribed for you is working for you, great. If at some point you decide you want to try one product line and see how it works– that would be best advised. Sometimes the use of different products and/or prescribed creams can cause your skin to become more oily or more dry and so forth…. I also would highly recommend you seek out a bio-identical hormone therapy physician in your hometown. Not a center that does this, but a humble physician who cares and treats you like a person not a number. I think it will help you with your menopause (speaking from experience) and may help with your skin. Hope this helps!! — Eva.

    Thank you for a warm, educational, & balanced video re: Albutin vs. Mandelic Acid.

    I sound like the Mandelic Acid line, but I have Hidradenitis Supprativa in both axilla, groin, & under both the breasts. I have fought this demon for almost 30 years. Surgery in 2000 removed a large benign cyst from my right armpit, but I didn’t go for the 2nd surgery on the other arm because the situation was not resolved. I am combating a deeply seated bacterial invader, that can be an intractably smelly beast. I would like to try the Mandelic line, but my budget is tight & I must be cautious.

    Your thoughts please??? And Thank you Ms. Eva for your time & consideration

      No, don’t buy any products right now. Have you tried alternative medicine? You should see a naturalist or alternative medicine doctor, they may prescribe some type of probiotic. Natural food stores will have some great options for you to combat bacteria that makes the skin smell. Also, buy several packages of baby wipes. Have a mini one in your purse. While you’re at work, go the restroom on breaks and wipe several times a day. Before a meeting in the car, wipe. Cut down on meat intake. I find that people who cut down significantly on animal based food greatly improve with bodily odor (which ultimately is caused by either not washing (I’m sure that’s not your case), or by bacteria). Please seek out an alternative doctor in your area (make sure he/she is legitimate and has a stellar reputation). Also, check out Life Extension Foundation and see what advice they have for this. I think you may find some great help with the resources I offer above. Take care. — Eva.

    I have been watching your videos and reading about discolorations, melisma for a while. I have had a upper lip discoloration since 12 or 13 years old. Once I started puberty my upper lip darkened, at times I would put Vaseline on my upper lip because it was dry cracked and at times rough scalely like. As a teenager my mom took me to dermatologists who prescribed ointments and steroid creams at first it worked but eventually came back. I also tried skin lighteners and bleaches too, it only seemed to make it darker. I have been very conscious of this discoloration since a teenager. I have been teased and bullied about having a mustache. I just want to look pretty, feel beautiful and not wear makeup to cover up and be happy when I look in the mirror and not stare at this darkness above my lip. Please Please help me Eva!! I’m willing to send pics I’m desperate. Thank You Ms. Eva

    Hi Eva, I love your videos I know you did a video on lightening the knuckles but I’m having that same problem with my feet specifically my toes. I’m mixed my mother is white and dad is black so I’m a light skinned person. I’m so embarrassed to shoe my feet during the summertime and I can’t wear cute sandals. My feet are light skin and toes are darker it looks so bad and it’s really effecting my self esteem. Should I see a dermatologist? I suffer from eczema as well. Right now I’m using fade cream and moisturizing my feet with organic cocunut oil. I don’t have that problem on my knuckles only my toes. Please it pray that you can help me or give me advice to start fixing this problem. I’ve suffered with the eczema all my life so I’ve learned to accept it but I don’t want to be ashamed to show my feet/toes during spring and summer. Thanks in advance!!!-Eva

    • Tamia says:

      I can send you photographs so maybe you can get a better understanding if need be. Thanks again.

      • SkinRenewalMethod says:

        Hello, Tamia:

        Of course you may email me photos. My email is: AskAboutSkinCare(at)Gmail(dot)com. I will look out for your email! — Eva.

    • SkinRenewalMethod says:

      Hello, Tamia:

      Unfortunately, there really isn’t one sure treatment that can help with eczema. There are ointments and creams or prescriptions that will subside the symptoms often associated with eczema. Coconut oil is a wonderful and natural remedy to offer your skin some much needed relief! As for your toes, I recently made a video vlog about this topic (see video below). You’re welcome to email me photos to AskAboutSkinCare(at)Gmail(dot)com. In the meanwhile I wish you best of health. — Eva. P.S. The video speaks about knuckles, but the same applies to the toes.

    Hi eva, I want to know if I can use 1/2 t spoon of neutralizer and 1/2 tspoon of tap water on my entire body after treated by mandalic acid

    • SkinRenewalMethod says:

      You may need more. Please look at your instruction sheet, or write back letting me know which area you’re treating so I can give you an indication of how much to use. Take good care. 🙂

    Hello, I’ve watched a couple of your videos about melasma but I’m still not sure if it’s the right product for me to use. Iv’e had this since I was about 14 years old. It’s really embarrassing and I want to get rid of it I don’t mind having to wait a couple of weeks or months as long as the product works for me. I’ve never tried bleaching it because I’m scared that it will damage my upper lip; my upper lip tends to be very dry. For some reason sometimes my upper lip gets darker and more noticeable than other times.
    I’ve noticed that you ask some people to send you pictures, where can I send you pictures?

    Thank You

      Hi, Daisy:

      I am so sorry for the late response, but for some reason your comment went to my website’s spam box. You’re welcome to email me directly at AskAboutSkinCare(at)Gmail(dot)com. Take good care. 🙂

    Hi Eva, thank you so much for these very informative videos. I’m considering purchasing your line to lighten my upper lip melasma but I have some questions. I’m 36 yr old Latina. First I would like to know if this treatment will erase all the melasma. Also is this a life time treatment? When I stop using the treatment, will it come back? And lastly, does the treatment become ineffective after a while? Thank you for your time. I would like to send pics for your evolution. Please let me know which email address I can send it to.


    • SkinRenewalMethod says:

      Hi, Juliana:

      Thank you for your interest. You are welcome to email me photos to AskAboutSkinCare(at)Gmail(dot)com, along with any questions you may have. I am unable to advise you and answer your questions without seeing your pictures (at the very least) and knowing other contributing factors such as are you on medications, birth control pills or if you’ve recently given birth. Have a wonderful day.

    Hi I was wondering if I would be a good candidate for this treatment, I’m obese and I have really dark under arms nd thighs.

    • SkinRenewalMethod says:

      It would be best if you lost weight first. Otherwise, the problem will be consistent because of the skin chaffing.

      Take care.

    Hi Eva,

    I recently broke out in hives around my nose and mouth. After the hives, my skin has been discolored, dry and darkened (I am Black). In addition, my skin is very sensitive and burns sometimes even when I sweat. The texture of my skin is uneven. I have had problems in the past with dark spots from minor breakouts. Would you recommend that I use this product? Should I visit a dermatologist first?

    • SkinRenewalMethod says:

      Hello – you should definitely visit a dermatologist first. Hives are usually indicative of some type of an allergic reaction. Best to consult with a physician first. Take care, Eva.
