Hyperpigmentation is a common skincare struggle for many people and occours when overproduction of melanin, unevenly distributed on the skin surface, forms light to dark brown patches/spots on the skin.
Increased melanin production is stimulated by different factors:
The skin protects itself agains sun damage by stimulating the production of melanin.
Sometimes more melanin is produced on certain areas of the skin, forming dark spots.
Hormonal fluctuation caused by pregnancy or birth control can result in Melasma, increased production of melanin in sun exposed areas. This usually affects chins, cheeks, nose and upper lip.
Popular melanin reducing actives such as Hydroquinone, can actually cause skin irritation and uneven skin tone.
Overuse of common skincare heros like acids, abrasive peelings, products containing alcohol and microdermabrasion triggers inflammation and damage the skins natural UV protection. As a result, the skin is dehydrated and vulnerable to sun light and pollution and this, in turn, increases the risk of pigment spots. Xxx is a nourishing peeling that gently buffs away dead skin cells build up, without damaging the skin barrier.
Keep your skin hydrated to avoid dry, thin and fragile skin. A moisturized skin can better withstand external stresses such as pollutants and sun.
Hydrated skin is more resillient skin with än strong barrier and It’s own UV protection.
Air pollution particles penetrates the skin. This damages skin cells and can cause excess production of melanin.
Acne and skin injury
PIH are brownish marks that remain after a blemish has healed, and primarily affects people of colour. Acne, laceration, insect bite or burns trigger inflammation in order to heal the injury. This stimulates increased melanin production, which can leave dark spots.
