Sun damage, inflammation, acne, hormones—all these can leave your skin with unwanted dark spots. Knowing what causes hyperpigmentation helps in treating and preventing it.
First off: sunscreen. Freckles, age spots, and acne marks can become more pronounced from too much sun exposure. So, wearing sunscreen is a must. Get a broad-spectrum sunscreen that blocks both UVA and UVB rays.
Detoxifying the skin also reduces discolouration. Vitamin C ampoules are supercharged with antioxidants that help treat UV-induced photodamage and stimulate collagen synthesis.
Another way to achieve even-toned skin is to exfoliate. For acne scars and dark patches, try a cream with hydroxy acid which causes a controlled chemical burn to renew the skin. This removes unwanted melanin and dead skin cells.
Get your hands on a skin pigmentation cream as well. This is specifically formulated with skin lightening effects, UV protection, and skin moisturisation.
Whatever your skin type, we’ve got what works right here.
