The face is one of the most common area for pigmentation or hyperpigmentation to crop up.  The reason for this is because of acne breakouts, sun damage (because this area is never covered by clothing), surgery, dark circles from aging and lack of sleep and other things like skin conditions, shaving, etc.  However, pigmentation issues can also arise on the body.  The underarms, knees, between the thighs, under the buttocks, etc. are common areas of friction and are also common areas of discoloration on the body.  All of these areas can be effective lightened and treated to be even toned with the skin around it.

Pigmentation Removal

Things that are needed for pigmentation or hyperpigmentation removal is high quality skin lightening products and a consistent skin lightening skin care regimen.  A consistent regimen for the face consists of: exfoliating, cleansing, toning, skin lightening cream, and a sunscreen.  A good skin lightening regimen for the body consists of exfoliating and cleansing using a rough weave cloth, applying a skin lightening formula for the body, and sunscreen or covering the body with clothing and keeping it protected and away from the sun.

Tanning is something that can reverse all of your results quickly.  Imagine having a consistent skin care regimen that you stick with day in and day out and losing all of your results in just a few minutes due to excessive sun exposure.  So, while lightening pigmentation it is going to be very important to avoid excessive sun exposure even if you are wearing sunscreen.  Being in the sun more than 15 minutes at a time while trying to lighten areas of hyperpigmentation is a big no no and shouldn't be done at any point.
