They discuss the causes of melasma and recommend safe and effective treatments, including concentrated vitamin C, tranexamic acid, and glutathione. They also provide a six-step skincare routine for managing melasma. The second question is about the difference between topical and oral collagen. Peter explains the science behind collagen and how it works in the body. He discusses the benefits of ingestible collagen peptides and the importance of choosing marine collagen. He also explains the role of topical collagen in triggering collagen production in the skin. They conclude by encouraging listeners to reach out with more questions.


Melasma is a type of hyperpigmentation that commonly occurs in women after pregnancy or due to overexposure to UV light.

Safe and effective treatments for melasma include concentrated vitamin C, tranexamic acid, and glutathione.

Ingestible collagen peptides can improve skin elasticity and structure, with marine collagen being the most bioavailable.

Topical collagen triggers collagen production in the skin, but it is important to choose products with collagen peptides that mimic type 21 collagen.

Consistency and a comprehensive skincare routine are key for managing melasma and boosting collagen production.
