What is Hyperpigmentation And How To Treat It?

If you are Indian, you must be familiar with the woes of hyperpigmentation. Asian skin contains more melanin-producing cells compared to people from other parts of the world. These cells are easily damaged or stimulated by sunlight. As a result, we are generally more prone to a host of skin pigmentation problems. Hyperpigmentation of skin presents itself as dark spots that appear anywhere on the body but are most noticed on the face. These happen due to excess sun exposure, hormones and even some medications. It can also happen when you pick at active pimples, which leave behind scars. While we tend to get fewer wrinkles than people in the West, we get more hyperpigmentation. You win some, you lose some, right? Hence, Asian skincare, or K-beauty, targets these issues unique to Asian skin!

So, How Do You Prevent It? 

Well, we are glad you asked. While you cannot change your genes, you can also follow some simple skin care tips to keep hyperpigmentation at bay. Sunscreen is your saviour! Every day, 20 minutes before you step out, slather on generous amounts of a broad spectrum, high SPF sunscreen on all exposed body parts. Don’t forget your ears and neck! Also, don’t pick at acne, or you will be left with scars! 

While taking care of your skin externally is great, you need to make sure that what you’re eating is also helpful. Include antioxidant-rich foods like dark chocolate, berries, green leafy vegetables, and lots of fruits. And of course, don’t forget to drink a minimum of 8 glasses of water! 

Okay, But I Already Have Hyperpigmentation… 

And you can prevent more by applying sunscreen! Many people look for the best hyperpigmentation treatment. While there is no one-size-fits-all solution, there are a few tips that are just good skincare practice and keep your skin healthy in the long run. Look for products that have vitamin C, hydroquinone, and kojic acid, retinol, hyaluronic acid, bakuchiol and peptides, as these super ingredients help in fading dark spots and pigmentation.

If you already have hyperpigmentation, don’t worry. Establishing a simple skincare routine will ensure that your hyperpigmentation fades with time and it will also prevent more dark spots from appearing. So here’s how you establish an anti-hyperpigmentation skincare routine. 

  • Look for a cleanser that does not irritate or dry out your skin. Irritated skin is more prone to hyperpigmentation, so make sure your cleanser does its job without damaging your skin barrier. We recommend the gentle Mon Cherry Brightening Foam Cleanser
  • Try a targeted serum or ampoule that promises to fade dark spots. Ampoules contain concentrated actives which go deep in the skin, making them excellent contenders to help fight hyperpigmentation on the face. You can try the Mama Cica Dark Spot Correcting Ampoule or the Bravocado Intense Brightening Serum for some added glow.
