Here’s what you can do to treat pigmentation


Pigmentation or hyperpigmentation are easily recognised as brown patches that you see on your face, especially around the cheeks and forehead. This happens when there is an overproduction of melanin, responsible for your skin colouring. This could be caused by a number of reasons, such as melasma, sun exposure and scars from acne, cuts and bites.

Here’s what you can do to treat pigmentation

Pigmentation can be mitigated with the use of sunscreen on a daily basis, whether you’re indoors or outdoors, and with the use of good ol’ retinol. Retinol is much loved for a myriad of reasons ranging from cell damage, boost repair, regulate oil production, boost collagen formation and reduce pigmentation. Any other products that help to improve the skin’s rate of exfoliation so that new skin cells are brought to the surface is also highly recommended, which could include skin exfoliators and topical solutions such as glycolic acid.

If you’re going to be even more serious about getting rid of pigmentation, there’re always aesthetic options you can consider.
