The Hype About Hyper-pigmentation

Looking into the mirror and find that you have those dull patches and uneven spots on your skin, especially under your eyes or around the corners of your mouth? That is just of the many signs of the common skin condition known as “hyper-pigmentation”.

What exactly is hyper-pigmentation? It is the darkening of some areas of your skin when there are excess melanin production. There are numerous factors contributing to the progression of hyper-pigmentation on the skin. The major ones are namely acne, hormonal changes, pregnancy, or even exposure to the ultra-violet rays from the sun. With something that seems to be out of our control since it's occurring within, then comes the next question we are looking for - How exactly do we minimise the hyper-pigmentation on our skin?

First, we approach where the problem takes root. The most prominent way of getting increased risk of hyper-pigmentation is from the exposure of UV light rays - Which activates the excess production of melanin in our skin. Therefore, never miss out on your sunscreen. Sunscreen is an essential product of your daily skincare routine, it contains chemicals such as zinc oxide and titanium dioxide, which helps to deflect the UV light rays from the layers of your skin, hence preventing excess melanin from forming more dark spots.

After finding the root of the problem, then treatment comes in. Ever try repainting old walls with fresh paint? Don’t you love the smooth and spotless surface after the uneven, dull and spotty appearance? That is what glycolic acid is for your skin . Glycolic acids have the property of minimising hyper-pigmentation scars through exfoliation. Due to its incredibly absorbable nature, it can easily remove the dead and dull skin cells - so it boosts renewed cell growth and brightens the skin!

Another ingredient to add to your skincare routine would be Vitamin C. With its antioxidant properties, Vitamin C decreases melanin production through the inhibition of enzymes that triggers the melanin production (the main cause of hyper-pigmentation).

Also, you can combat your hyper-pigmentation with home remedies. Some excellent ingredients for hyper-pigmentation would be apple cider vinegar, turmeric, aloe vera - All focusing on the brightening aspect of the skin. Specific home found ingredients contain particular components that targets the cause of hyper-pigmentation.

Hyper-pigmentation does not recede at preferred pace, hence it is important that you continue with regular routine of treatment options so as to reduce them. While they do affect the appearance of your face, the one crucial thing to note is that health comes from within, and so does beauty - make sure to keep your skin healthier each time to feel the most beautiful no matter the extent of your hyper-pigmentation. Remember, what matters is inside the skin (literally) - so give your skin the treatment it deserves!
