Easy Ways to Tackle Hyperpigmentation

You may not know it but hyperpigmentation, otherwise known as dark spots, is a common skin concern. The condition most commonly occurs due to the overproduction of melanin, the natural pigment in the skin. Therefore, it is often exacerbated during the sunny summer months (the present hard-hitting sun). However, it can also occur due to inflammation caused by conditions like acne, just want you don’t need. While hyperpigmentation can be hard to avoid for some, you can definitely help reduce its severity with the help of Pevonia. Follow the steps mentioned below:

CHOOSING CORRECT SKINCARE PRODUCTS: 

If you are not aware of Pevonia's remedies, they are specifically designed to target hyperpigmentation. There are 4 key ingredients to look out for.

  • The first being Vitamin C. It not only helps heal blemishes, but also reduces hyperpigmentation and gives your skin an all-out glow. Once you add a daily dose of vitamin C to your skincare routine, you can start seeing noticeable improvements in a matter of weeks.
  • Sea Buckthorn is an essential ingredient when it comes to skin pigmentation. It helps with resurfacing, declogging and brightening skin and can aid in evening out dark areas of the face, neck and chest.
  • Sphérulites is another go-to ingredient for hyperpigmentation. It works by going deep beneath your skin, encouraging cell turnover and bringing healthier, newer skin cells to the surface!
  • Hyaluronic Acid is found in sunscreens and highly recommended by the dermatologist in the fight against hyperpigmentation. Formulated with the correct supporting ingredients, it’s excellent for resurfacing and lightening photodamaged skin. 

EXFOLIATE TWICE/THRICE A WEEK

Exfoliation will help shed the hyper pigmented cells and speed up healing. The most effective exfoliator for managing hyperpigmentation is Sodium Lauroyl Oat Amino Acids. They penetrate more deeply into the skin than physical exfoliators and do not damage your skin.

PROPER SUN PROTECTION

Wear sunscreen and be regular with it. Apply it even if you're at home. Applying your SPF is not only the best way to prevent premature ageing, but it will also dramatically decrease your chances of getting hyperpigmentation as well as reducing it.


ADD VITAMIN C TO YOUR DIET

A healthy diet rich in antioxidants, such as vitamin C and flavonoids can effectively help reduce skin darkening. So be sure to introduce avocados, oranges, grapes, cherries, broccoli and bell peppers into your daily diet, as well as foods with beta-carotene (orange colour) like sweet potatoes, pumpkin, carrots and seafood rich in copper, magnesium, selenium and zinc. Such a diet works by encouraging the production of melanin, reduction of free radicals and support of cell turnover, the three things that help grow healthy, happy skin and diminish dark spots!


STAY HYDRATED

Turn your morning cuppa into a mug of green tea! We know green tea is rich in antioxidants and flavonoids, but did you know as a result, it can help reduce both skin inflammation and melanin production in one.
