Dealing with hyperpigmentation can be a real downer. Those stubborn dark spots and uneven skin tone can make you feel less confident. But worry not, we've got your back! In this easy-peasy guide, we'll walk you through the steps to tackle hyperpigmentation and get your glow back.
Step 1: Cleanse Gently, But Thoroughly
First things first, start with a gentle cleanser. It's like saying 'bye' to all the dirt and grime that can make pigmentation worse. Make sure your cleanser is your BFF – not too harsh, not too mild. A balancing act, you could say! We have one that’s just perfect for the job! Have you tried our Calendula Cloud Cleanser yet?
Step 2: Say Hello to Vitamin C
Vitamin C is your new best friend. It's like sunshine in a bottle for your skin! Look for a vitamin C serum and apply it religiously. It helps fade those pesky dark spots and brightens up your overall complexion. Just a few drops every morning and/or night – easy, right? Luckily for you, we have TWO Vitamin C serums to choose from! For those just starting out, try our 5% Vitamin C Water. For those looking for something on the higher % side, try our 12% VC-12 Intermediate Serum.
Step 3: Show Some Love to SPF
Sunscreen, sunscreen, sunscreen! Never underestimate the power of sun protection. It's like a shield against further pigmentation. Find one that suits your skin type and wear it daily, even on cloudy days, like the Hybrid Sun Defence.
Step 4: Exfoliate Occasionally
Exfoliating can help slough off dead skin cells and reveal a fresher you. But don't overdo it, once or twice a week is plenty. Look for exfoliators with ingredients like salicylic acid or mandelic acid – they're like little skin helpers. Our Complete Cleanse exfoliating cleanser is a great starting point!
Step 5: Don't Forget Moisturiser
Hydration is the key! Use a moisturiser that suits your skin type to lock in all the goodness you've applied. It's like a cosy blanket for your skin. Those looking for something barrier-focused can try the Barrier Boost Face Formula, while those looking for something calming and fuss-free can try The Calm Cream.
Step 6: Patience Is Virtue
Remember, Rome wasn't built in a day, and neither is perfect skin. Be patient and consistent with your routine. Changes won't happen overnight, but they will happen!
Step 7: Consider Professional Help
If your hyperpigmentation is really stubborn, consider consulting a dermatologist.
