Adapt these Skin care Routine for Hyperpigmentation to own a beautiful skin

By Skin & Hair Academy  |   February 17, 2017

Hyperpigmentation, also known as dark spots or sun spots – is the excess pigmentation on your skin that is not fun to deal with. Hyperpigmentation bothers many people, especially in sunny countries like India. You can deal with hyperpigmentation by adopting a skin care routine that will also benefit your skin in other ways. Let’s see how you can get clear pigmentation free skin once and for all.

Causes of hyperpigmentation
Hyperpigmentation can be caused by a number of reasons:
1. If you have spent your early years out in the sun unprotected, pigmentation starts showing up on your face in your 20s
2. Your acnes leave scars behind on your skin
3. It can also be caused by hormonal changes 
4. Pregnancy causes a condition called ‘melasma’ or mask of pregnancy which usually shows up on the bridge of the nose, cheeks, forehead and lips
5. Women on birth control pills may also experience blotchiness

Skin care routine to fight hyperpigmentation
Women usually tend to get rid of pigmentation by bleaching or by covering up the patchiness with makeup, but they only end up making your skin worse. Bleaching excessively can strip your face of its natural glow and makeup is a temporary relief.
Instead a dedicated daily skin care routine can easily treat superficial hyperpigmentation and do wonders for your skin in the long run

cleanse your skinStep 1: Cleanse
Prep your skin with cleansers that contain lightening ingredients like vitamin C or lactic acid. Vitamin C nourishes repairs and protects skin. It also stimulates collagen production for firmer looking skin. You could also use green tea based cleansers that calm inflammation and soothes.

Step 2: Exfoliate
exfoliation

Gently exfoliate your skin with a facial scrub, washcloth or scrub to remove the dead skin cells. Dead skin cells can block and treatment from penetrating deeper into your skin and being effective.

 

 

Step 3: Treat
After exfoliation follow up with treatments that repair damaged skin and eleiminate pigmentation. Serums are designed with tiny molecules that easily penetrate the skin for the desired results. As with cleanser, use serums with vitamin C or lactic acid. Serums with kojic acid and licroice lighten the skin and erase scars.

moisturize skin Step 4: Moisturize 
Moisturising is essential for everyone – no matter what you skin type. A light gel based moisturiser is sufficient for oily skin and for those with dry skin can use a creamy moisturiser. 

 

Step 5: Protect
sunscreen

Never step out in to the sun without a sunscreen, no matter how cloudy it is outside. Sunscreen prevents darkening of existing pigmentation and causes further damage. It is counterproductive to not use a sunscreen along with your skin lightening products.

 

Hyperpigmentation can be a problem but it can be easily dealt with a little patience and discipline. Take care of your skin with our tips and flaunt that glow!

Hi shilpa, chemical peels are one of the most effective non-invasive treatments available to cure pigmentation, tanning and a host of other skin issues. its popularity is attributed to immediate effect, in some cases, skin improves visibly from the very first session. in comparison to many other kinds of beauty and skincare treatments, the results of a chemical peel are noticeable and promising. most problems like pigmentation and skin damage visibly reduce right from your first sitting. your skin will be noticeably smoother as the peel penetrates into the skin texture to even it out. it also leaves the skin glowing and evenly toned. though you many need multiple sessions depending on the intensity of the scars, chemical peels require minimum aftercare.

Hi magh, have you considered getting a chemical peel done? a chemical peel is a skincare treatment involving the application of a chemical solution on the skin, which makes it slough and eventually peel off, giving you fresh looking skin. it is known to be effective when it comes to skin rejuvenation, pigmentation, and reduction of pimples and acne. peels can be of 3 types: superficial (or surface-level), medium peels or deep peels, depending on how far the chemical penetrates. one of the first reasons to opt for such a treatment is a visible reduction in the skin problem. your skin will be noticeably smoother with evident reduction in pigmentation and skin damage. the second reason is skin restoration and the third is that it suits all skin types.

Hi arif, one of the most common causes of dry and chapped lips is the lack of moisture. so naturally, the first step to achieveing a supple pout is keeping your body hydrated. drink plenty of water, at least 8-10 glasses everyday. also, remember, just as you would exfoliate facial skin, your lips need exfoliating too. powdered brown sugar works wonders as it rids you lips of dead cells. alternately, use a lip exfoliator that contains fruit-acid-based alpha or beta hydroxy acids. apply a good quality lip balm that contains spf of at least 15 and slather on some ghee or clarified butter before you go to bed. these will help your lips stay soft and plump. another factor that affects your lips is smoking. it leaves stains, making your lips look discoloured and extremely unattractive.reason enough to quit smoking today!
