Banish Hyperpigmentation: 5 Treatments That Actually Deliver

Hey, Lovelies!

Hyperpigmentation can creep up on our beautiful faces without any warning whatsoever. One day you aren’t familiar with the word. The next you are being told you have it, and no, it doesn’t wash off! Fortunately, when it comes to banishing hyperpigmentation, there exist some treatments that actually deliver good results. Read on to find the treatments that actually rid us of the annoying skin issue. So, go ahead and restore balance to your world. I mean, seriously – we’ve had enough to contend with, without our skin freaking out and changing too!

What Is Hyperpigmentation?

Omage of hyperpigmentation on body

Pigmentation basically means the colouring of skin. Hyperpigmentation is a condition that causes your skin to darken. Although some medical conditions can trigger this, it is usually harmless and just very annoying. As we age, we develop age spots. This type of pigmentation is often noticed on the cheeks. Over-exposure to sunlight, hormones, and aging can contribute to this pesky skin concern.

The Best Treatments For Hyperpigmentation (During Lockdown)

1.Best Cream: NeoStrata Pigment Controller, £60 (30ml), www.lookfantastic.com

Are you sick and tired of waking up to notice uneven skin tone, dark patches, and discolouration? If so, this is the answer to your skin woes. Combining an array of proven complexion-saving ingredients, this outstanding formula provides transformative results. Featuring:

Retinol – Proven to treat uneven skin, dark spots, and lines/wrinkles.

NeoGlucosamine®  – This innovative component gently, yet effectively exfoliates.

SabiWhite -Containing superior antioxidant benefits.  Slows the process of melanogenesis, enabling skin lightening.

Alpine Plant Extracts – These plant extracts are shown to be highly beneficial in tackling tyrosinase. This otherwise produces melanin, and pigmentation.

Vitamin C – This amazing ingredient offers huge anti-aging and anti-inflammatory abilities.  It also thwarts the onset of melanin production, too. Vitamin C targets and lightens hyperpigmentation.

Vitamin E – Used in conjunction with vitamin C. The vitamins complement each other in achieving skin lightening results.

2.Best Peel: Caudalie Glycolic Peel, £22 (75ml) www.cultbeauty.co.uk

Caudalie has to be one of my all-time favourites and their peel formula gives game-changing results. Glycolic peels are another good remedy for the problem of hyperpigmentation. This non-irritation resurfacing treatment will exfoliate, refine, and renew your complexion. Caudalie offers a noticeable brightening effect. Brimming with grape-sourced viniferine, the peel provides a bucketload of antioxidant value. Expect a complexion that’s nothing short of healthy luminosity!

3.Green Light Therapy – Talika Pigment Control Anti-Dark Spots Device, £80 (Was £89), www.currentbody.com

The treatments mentioned here will improve hyperpigmentation. Should the problem remain, the Talika Device may be a better option. This is because topical benefits can only go so far. Ordinarily, for optimal benefits you may choose a dermatologist’s laser therapy. However, during this weird situation in which we find ourselves, an at-home device is the answer.

The Talika Pigment Control instrument is an anti-aging device that provides green light therapy. It targets dark spots on the face, décolletage, and hands. This device emits a 525 nm Wavelength, that regulates melanocyte processes. It’s ionic microcurrents stimulate the skin’s healing power and allows for maximum absorption of pigment controlling creams. The Talika has shown good overall results.

4.Retin-A: Tretinoin (Prescription Only)

Tretinoin is a prescription-only Retin-A product. Extremely powerful, this component greatly aids in dealing with acne, hyperpigmentation, and surface wrinkles. If you have tried retinol and other treatments don’t seem to work, this may help. However, those with sensitive skin do not tolerate this ingredient very well.

5.Microdermabrasion: Exuviance Triple Microdermabrasion Face Polish, £50.94, www.facethefuture.co.uk

leave lockdown what you need to know

I tried this face polish some time back and consider this to be as professional-grade as you can get at home. It may be due to the professional grade crystals included. Combining glycolic acid and papaya extract, the incredible formula provides superior resurfacing results. The treatment: brightens, evens skin tone, polishes, and generally transforms the look and feel of the skin. I would be amazed if you tried the face polish and were disappointed.

No, Ingrown Hair, You May Not Have A Place On The Face

So, you think you have your list of skin concerns sussed – then out of the blue without any warning, the dreaded ingrown hair suddenly appears. What’s worse, there seems to be no getting rid of it without serious skin removal – it’s as if it has self-set in concrete! Well, if this rings a rather large bell, fear not; here are the best tips and product advice to ensure the unwanted guest is permanently removed from your face (or anywhere else). I love

1.Exfoliate

Screen Shot 2018-11-12 at 12.56.16

Look Fantastic

Clogged hair follicles may cause hairs to grow inwards/sideways (any way but the right way). To Prevent this from happening as well as removing the stubborn already established hair by simply exfoliating in a circular motion and on a regular basis. The best products to use will contain BHA (beta-hydroxy acid) or salicylic acid. Alternatively, a sugar scrub (with as little oil as possible to prevent clogging) can help. I love Paula’s Choice Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliant £26, Look Fantastic.

2.Tease Out With Tweezers

Screen Shot 2018-11-12 at 13.01.32.png

Wikipedia

If you can see the hair near to the surface, try to carefully tease this out with a pair of tweezers, but always make sure they are sterilised.

3.Warm Water

Screen Shot 2018-11-12 at 13.04.25

Before hair removal soak a cloth in warm water and gently dampen the area you are about to treat.

4.Never Shave Eyebrow (or Any Other Are on Your Face)

There have been a few suggestions in the media about whether shaving areas on your face is a good idea. I cannot speak for everyone, but generally speaking unless you like stubble and ingrown hairs, avoid this one at all costs.

5.Ingrown Hair Preventative Products

Screen Shot 2018-11-12 at 13.10.41

Look Fantastic

Aside from exfoliating with a sugar scrub or products that contain BHA or salicylic acid, you can also aid in the prevention of these irksome hairs with specific ingrown hair treatments. There are many on the market but the best one I have come across is the Skin Doctors Hair More Hair Inhibitor Spray, (approximately £10 for 120ml). Buy here
