I have melasma above my upper lip which I think is dermal. I also have splotchy freckles over the majority of my face. Caused by the pill. After trawling these forums I have invested in the following and started to take them yesterday with this routine: (If anyone has suggestions about best time to take them etc or any changes I shoud make, all advice is greatly appreciated) Morning after breakfast: Tranexamic acid 250mg MSM 1000mg Vitamin C 1000mg After supper: Grapefruit seed extract capsules 400mg Zinc picolinate 22mg Omega 3 vegetarian gels Cover face in 15% mandelic acid serum and layer on upper lip. Please can someone give me some hope that this is going to work. I am beyond miserable . How long is it going to take? I've had it for about 3 years now and I've tried everything topically . Any recommendations for a good sunscreen made with zinc?
