There are so many fads, old wives tales and ‘miracle cures’ and I’ve tried most of them! Baking soda, apple cider vinegar, salicylic acid, high-end brands, red light therapy and wish power.
I’m almost certain mine is predominantly due to sun exposure, I do wear sunscreen everyday with a minimum of 30spf and 50spf on hotter days/when on my holibobs. But, some of the damage was already done before I knew what it was and how it was caused. So now my pigmentation treatment is focused on prevention and trying to undo what damage had previously been done.
What is hyperpigmentation?
Hyperpigmentation is a condition that causes the skin to darken. It can occur in small patches, cover large areas, or affect the entire body. This condition usually isn’t harmful, but it can be a symptom of another medical condition.
Types of hyperpigmentation
There are several types of hyperpigmentation:
- Melasma is believed to be caused by hormonal changes and develops during pregnancy. Areas of hyperpigmentation can appear on any area of the body. They appear most commonly on the abdomen and face.
- Sunspots, also called liver spots or solar lentigines, are common. They’re related to excess sun exposure over time. Generally, they appear as spots of hyperpigmentation on areas exposed to the sun, like the hands and face.
- Post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation is a result of an injury to the skin.
Pigmentation, sun-spots, acne scarring and rosacea all can be treated with similar ingredients and one of my favourites (and most effective) is FRUIT PEEL RESURFACING SERUM
Do you know what gives Fruit Peel Resurfacing Serum its brightening, radiance-boosting properties? Derived from the Australian finger lime, lime pearl extract is naturally rich in Alpha Hydroxy Acid which gently exfoliates and resurfaces the skin to reveal a more youthful-looking complexion overnight.
