How To Reduce Hyperpigmentation And Uneven Skin Tone On Your Face
Radiant skin is right around the corner, so you can finally kiss an uneven skin tone goodbye
In the era of Photoshop, Facetune, and filters the pressure to have perfect skin is high. Any makeup lover knows foundation can do wonders for uneven skin tones, but wouldn’t it be nice to have an even complexion without foundation?
Thanks to modern technology, there are many things you can do to get rid of hyperpigmentation on the face. Whether you decide to go for high-tech laser, or topical creams, just know you still have time to get an even skin tone. Start today!
But first, what is hyperpigmentation?
Hyperpigmentation is a condition in which patches of skin become darker in color than the normal surrounding skin. This happens when an excess of melanin, the brown pigment that produces skin color, forms deposits in the skin. The three main types of hyperpigmentation are melasma, Post-Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation (PIH), and sun damage or sunspots. But don’t worry, most hyperpigmentation responds well to treatment.
What causes hyperpigmentation?
It’s very common, usually harmless, and occurs due to sun damage. Pregnancy can also trigger overproduction of melanin, acne scars may leave dark spots and freckles, age spots and other darkened skin patches can become darker when exposed to the sun.
So now to the important question ... How can you get rid of hyperpigmentation on the face for an even skin tone?
There are a few things you can do to accomplish an even complexion, but let’s start from scratch:
1. Prevention is your skin’s bff
The smart thing to do is to use a daily moisturizer that not only enhances the overall radiance of your skin, but has SPF to prevent sun damage and thus, hyperpigmentation. POND'S® Clarant Even Skin Tone Daily Moisturizer with SPF 30 is all that and a bag of chips. Because it is infused with Vitamin B3, an ingredient known to reduce the appearance of skin discoloration, helping maintain an even skin tone while protecting your skin from the UV rays. So you can finally kiss uneven skin good bye and welcome spotless skin.
You can complement your daily even skin tone routine with a dark spot correcting cream like POND’S® Clarant B3, which is a great option whether you have normal to dry skin or normal to oily skin. Apply this moisturizer at night, to even out your skin tone in 2-4 weeks and diminish the appearance of dark spots in 4 weeks. Basically, takes your skin from A to B-eautiful.
2. Look skin, no hands!
Another important thing to remember is that picking is a huge no-no. Scratching and picking at a spot can increase inflammation that can lead to skin discoloration. So as tempting as scratching, squeezing, and picking, remember: Hands off!
3. Go to the pro
If even after your TLC you keep getting dark spots, it’s time to call in the pros. Ask a dermatologist about what you can do in your specific case and apply in order to get rid of those petty little spots. A radiant skin might just be what the doctor ordered!
It’s time to forget about filters and go get these moisturizers because with the right skin care, you now can show off radiant skin. Uneven skin tone no more.
