Hyperpigmentation can be caused by numerous things from acne scarring to sun damage, and anything in between. These annoying dark spots can be difficult to fade if you’re not using the right products or regimen for your skin. Today, we’re sharing a few tips on how to fade the pesky spots as well as some of our favorite Tonique products that will give you the best results!
Whether chemical or physical, one of the best things you can do to fade hyperpigmentation is to exfoliate. We are constantly shedding skin cells, and it takes on average 30 days for us to get an entirely new layer of the outer skin. Severe dark spots, like those that appear after cystic acne, can take a long time to fade.
Exfoliation assists in this process by increasing cell turnover to reveal new layers of skin even quicker. This can happen in two ways: either physical or chemical. The physical method is when there is a scrubbing action that removes the dead skin cells. Chemical is when an acid or other ingredient is introduced that removes dead skin, such as a peel.
Our Exfoliating and Brightening Facial Scrub is a great physical exfoliant that is full of natural, high-end ingredients that will sweep away dead skin cells and reveal a glowing appearance. If a physical exfoliant isn’t for you, try out our Glycolic Skin Peeling and Whitening Lotion. This product gently removes the dead skin and leaves you feeling moisturized.
Retinoids help to eliminate the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, as they aid in the production of collagen. When it comes to fading hyperpigmentation, they stimulate new blood vessels, helping improve skin color.
Our Brightening Anti-Aging Whitening Creme is infused with 0.5% Retinol and tons of natural botanicals. It helps boost collagen, fade dark spots, and eliminate crow’s feet and other signs of aging.
Perhaps one of the most popular ingredients when it comes to fading dark spots, vitamin C has been proved to even skin tone and give that youthful glow you’re looking for. You’ll find this powerful and effective ingredient in many of our products. It’s one of our favorites!
The science behind vitamin C’s power to even skin tone is quite simple. It inhibits tyrosinase, which is crucial to the production of melanin, which causes dark spots. This helps fade dark spots without continuing to lighten your natural skin.
