Although we do not have a product that targets hyperpigmentation or discoloration by itself (at this time) here are a few items that can help.
Hyperpigmentation or Discoloration refers to any darkening of the skin, whether it’s dark spots, melasma, acne scarring or a whole host of other conditions.
Dark spots and discoloration pop up due to both internal and external factors, such as unprotected sun exposure over time, inflammation from chronic health conditions or skin injuries.
When dealing with this, it’s important to understand that in some cases, the damage is done. However, that doesn’t mean it can’t be improved!
Here are a few dermatologist approved solutions:
Niacinamide found in DAY RESTORE
What it does: Niacinamide is a form of vitamin B3, which is involved in cell metabolism. Topical application of B-3 can interrupt the process of cell pigmentation, thereby brightening the skin. It can also be used to treat acne which can help prevent future hyperpigmentation or scarring.
How to use it: You can use niacinamide daily as your moisturizer paired with a Vitamin C.
Vitamin C found in VITAMIN C GLOW SERUM
What it does: Vitamin C can reduce hyperpigmentation. Vitamin C is also a potent antioxidant, which means it protects skin cells from further damage either from the sun or outside pollutants.
A small 2004 study found that using 5% ascorbic acid cream — a form of vitamin C — for 16 weeks reduced hyperpigmentation for 62.5% of participants. (Ours is 10%).
How to use it: People with sensitive skin might see redness or feel stinging from using vitamin C. However, it's safe to use vitamin C daily in your skincare products to treat hyperpigmentation and discoloration caused by acne or inflammation.
Hyaluronic found in HYALURONIC ACID SERUM
What it does: Hyaluronic acid also helps reduce and prevent age spots and pigmentation issues.
How to use it: But, it cannot do it on it’s own. When looking to treat dark spots, pair with a VITAMIN C.
Microdermabrasion found in MICRODERMABRASION POLISHING CRYSTALS
What it does: Microdermabrasion helps with discoloration and hyperpigmentation. Great for those with melasma, or any type of aging spots or darker patches on your skin. Another benefit of using microdermabrasion if you get blackheads often, this treatment may be a way to shrink your pores.
How to use it: Wash face, then apply the scrub, rinse clean. We do not recommend using this daily/nightly but may be used at least twice a week. Follow it up with PROVENCE ROSE TONER, HYALURONIC SERUM, VITAMIN C, and DAY RESTORE. (In this order).
