Hey guys - haven't checked this website for ages! The Nannic is definitely working for me, I would say that my melasma is 60% less visible than it was before. I don't know if it will fade it completely, but its definitely improved it. I'm also going to have some microdermabrasion next week (I bought a course of 3 through Groupon) and I am hoping that the combination of Nannic and microdermabrastion will blast the last of my melasma away.

Thought it worth mentioning that I am 38 years old and never wore sunscreen til I was about 35-6, which is when I first started experiencing melasma.

You can order it by typing in Nannic uk into your browser. (Sorry, I am not allowed to type in the URL - but other people have posted the link in their posts). The product is called Nannic Skin Tone Balancer Triple Action. Its a UK website, but they have branches in other European countries. I think its worth emailing them and asking if they will ship to the US.


I hope that helps everyone! I will keep you posted on the microdermabrasion!

P.S. I have been reading a lot of forums and websites on melasma and there are so many conflicting opinions and results of both laser treatments and skin-peeling treatments. I've had laser several years ago and I don't think it did a thing, though I don't think it made it worse. I am terrified of trying a skin peel in case it aggravates it. I've heard the gentlest treatment for melasma is microdermabrastion, as it's just basically a high-tech scrub. I am hoping that this, plus the Nannic, plus using a high-factor (100 SPF) will help me get my melasma under control. It's already a lot better just from the Nannic and using sunscreen. Will keep you posted after I've had my course of microdermabrasion treatments.

start using zinc oxide sunscreens theyre the best as they reflect the light off the skin rather than working within teh skin like chemical ones. search the site youll see lots of suggestions here

yes listen to angel! chemical sunscreens no good for people who have melasma! zinc oxide is the way to go....there are plenty of good ones out there! until i truly started to protect my face with good protection, my melasma is pretty much gone. of course the topicals and supplements i use helped tremendously, but once i stopped using chemical sunscreens, my melasma would stop getting darker.

remember natural light stimulates the production of even more brown pigment (melanin)..so even if your melasma does go away, don't forget, spf for the rest of your life! it will come back, even if it goes away with supplements and topicals! protect that skin always. hats, sunglasses, spf! but it does not mean stop your life. i still enjoy my days outside, and look cute and fashionable!

so invest in a good spf...that is not chemical based...

hope this helps

continue to use the forte, but no HQ. i feel that HQ does not work good for melasma. its just temporary. if its dermal, it won't work. IMHO. but i think with using just the forte it should bring the glow back.

and use a good sunscreen. non chemical based. look for one with zinc oxide. devita, burn out, marie veronique, shiseido, and some others are all good ones too look for. even when the melasma is gone, SPF always....

Thanks Angel Hair - what about titanium dioxide? I use Neutrogena 'spectrum + face' which doesn't contain either zinc or titanium dioxide and find that it helps me. Its got an SPF of 100. I'm thinking of switching to one that contains zinc now though...

How long did you see results form Nannic?

Hey phanto! I think I started using it in August last year. It took around 2 months to really start seeing a visible difference, I think. But to be honest, I cannot remember exactly now.

Thanks daisy !
Any info helps. I just need to be patient. I know there is no one perfect product so I'm not sure if I should try only this to see if it works or mix w my other products to increase ammunition against my melasma. If it improves, i wouldnt know which product(s) are helping. Oh well ..

I'm really sad ... 80% of my face is melasma, as if I'm wearing a mask. Thanks for your support.

This is a response to GiGi.

Grapefruitseed extract works for me too.

My melasma was dark and my skin tone is fitzpatrick IV.

Avoid alcohol, coffee and eat good healthy food.

Good luck to all with this terrible condition - it's truly a curse.
