What is hyperpigmentation?

Hyperpigmentation is patches of skin that become darker than the rest of the skin, and the most common types are sun spots, melasma and post inflammatory hyperpigmentation. Hyperpigmentation happens due to an excess production of melanin in the skin, and can be caused by a number of factors including sun exposure, injury, hormonal changes, or genetics.

Key skincare ingredients to target hyperpigmentation

Vitamin C

As an antioxidant, vitamin C helps to fade dark spots. Used usually for brightening and reviving the skin, it can be an incredible ingredient to help with hyperpigmentation. Also, you’ll be left with a refreshed complexion! 

Lactic acid

With powerful effects of stimulating collagen production, lactic acid helps with skin dullness and rough texture of the skin. Lactic acid is a hero ingredient in many ways, but especially helps with reducing hyperpigmentation. 

Salicylic acid

Helping to get rid of excess oil on the surface of the skin, salicylic acid is a beta-hydroxy acid that reduces inflammation caused by hyperpigmentation. By helping to reduce impurities of the skin’s surface, this prevents clogged pores which can lead to an uneven skin tone. 

Glycolic Acid

Glycolic acid is an alpha hydroxy acid and gently removes layers of built-up pigment. As an ingredient for brightening the skin, glycolic acid gets rid of dead skin by exfoliating the skin and reduces surface discolouration.
