Hyperpigmentation or dark patches on skin is a skin issue felt by most people. While it’s not a deadly condition, it does ruin the complexion. You’d think that with the many advances made in beauty technology, there will be quick fixes on the market. Sadly there isn’t. But it’s not all bad, there are very advanced hyperpigmentation treatments that work, they just take time. This post lays out five of the best hyperpigmentation skincare products worth trying if you’re looking to say goodbye to hyperpigmentation for good.
What causes hyperpigmentation in skin?
Hyperpigmentation occurs in different ways and affects people of all skin types. It usually comes in the form of skin trauma such as acne, eczema, bug bites, cuts, scrapes, sun and age spots.
There are many ways to treat hyperpigmentation, it can be treated topically by applying creams and serums or through cosmetic procedures like laser therapy, intense pulsed light, chemical peels or microdermabrasion but hold off on spending the money; and see if my picks for treating hyperpigmentation can’t help.
It’s skin Power 10 Formula One Shot VC Cream & It’s Skin Power 10 VC Serum
The benefits of Vitamin C are no secret at this point; it brightens dull skin complexion and depending on the potency, it has the ability to fade hyperpigmentation marks caused by acne and skin tissue damage. This duo from the It’s Skin Power 10 range brightens and gradually fades pigmentation marks while restoring the skin’s silkiness.
Novexpert Booster With Vitamin C & Novexpert The Expert Exfoliator – 2 in 1 Mask & Scrub
Anyone who knows their skincare would agree that having a consistent routine will produce results in time. But this duo from Novexpert is one of the few skincare products where you see almost immediate results.
This duo is a Vitamin C powerhouse that treats hyperpigmentation fast. It brightens dull and ashy complexion, as well as pigmentation marks. It also has anti- ageing qualities so it fights wrinkles and skin conditions caused by the environment.
While the vitamin C serum brightens skin surface, the Expert Exfoliator exfoliates deep within to reveal new skin that is smooth in texture, bright and radiant looking.
Korres Wild Rose Face Oil & Night Cream
Greek skincare brand, Korres have been using botanical ingredients to solve skin issues for decades and tackling hyperpigmentation is no different. They have tapped the skin healing powers of the wild rose flower which is seen as a super ingredient potent in Vitamin C to solve complexion and skin discolouration problems caused by hyperpigmentation. The duo of the Wild Rose Advanced Brightening & Nourishing Face Oil and Brightening & First Wrinkles Advanced Repair Sleeping Facial form a very effective hyperpigmentation treatment.
Alpha H Liquid Gold & Alpha-H Vitamin C Paste
Alpha H’s Liquid Gold needs no introduction, it is legendary in the beauty industry. Whether you have ageing skin, pigmentation problems, acne scarred skin, dull complexion or tired skin in need of a boost, Alpha H Liquid Gold is for you.
Together with the new Alpha-H Vitamin C Paste with 10% L-Ascorbic Acid, a waterless formulation that delivers pure and stable Vitamin C directly to the skin; this duo can radically improve the texture and appearance of hyperpigmentation.
The Ordinary Alpha Arbutin 2% + HA 30ml & Glycolic Acid 7% Toning Solution
To be fair, The Ordinary has many products that target hyperpigmentation but I believe these two, working together provide a potent hyperpigmentation remedy. The Alpha Arbutin 2% + HA 30ml is a high-potency gel-like serum that visibly targets hyperpigmentation and dark spots, while daily use of the Glycolic Acid 7% Toning Solution will gently exfoliate the skin’s surface to brighten and refine the texture.
Bottom line, hyperpigmentation happens to all of us, and it’s pretty harmless but if you want to get rid of it, these skincare duos will get the job done.
