What is Hyperpigmentation?
Hyperpigmentation is a common skin concern that appears as darkend patches or spots on the skin that makes your complexion uneven. You can get hyperpigmentation
on any area of your skin caused by excess melanin production.
Why does the skin overproduce melanin? The factors that lead to increased melanin production in your skin included:
- Sun Exposure
- Skin Injury or Inflammation (Acne)
- Hormonal Changes
- Allergic Reactions
How to Treat Hyperpigmentation?
01. Exfoliate regularly your skin
Exfoliating regularly can accelerate the skin’s natural cell turnover process to reveal the vibrant, newer skin underneath and enhances the skin penetration of active ingredients.
This PHA 12% liquid utilizes Gluconolactone for its gentle exfoliating and hydrating benefits. This product is a wonderful alternative in those who tend to have very sensitive skin
and could not tolerate many chemical exfoliants like AHAs and BHAs.
02. Treat with brightening ingredients
Incorporate brightening ingredients that helps to control excess melanin production to prevent dark spots from forming, whilst also fading existing spots.
This is like a next-level niacinamide serum packed with Niacinamide 10% and Arbutin 2%. Not only do Niacinamide and Arbutin work synergistically to reduce the skin’s melanin
production for a brighter and more even skin tone, but the formula layers well with other products without pilling issues.
This vitamin C serum contains vitamin C in the form of Ascorbic Acid, which is the most potent kind of vitamin C. At 20 percent potency, it helps fight free radicals and reduce the
effects of sun damage, along with its ability to dramatically brighten dark spots.
03. Don’t forget your sunscreen
Sun protection is the most effective way to prevent hyperpigmentation. If you have any kind of hyperpigmentation, such as age spots, post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, or
melasma, applying sunscreen can protect your skin from sun damage and prevent hyperpigmentation from becoming darker.
This sunscreen is a great go-to option for everyday use on your face, as it is lightweight and super-easy to apply with no white cast or heavy feeling left behind. It also provides
UVA and UVB protection and contains Aloe and antioxidants (Vitamin C and E) so it actually soothes and improves skin as well as protecting it.
