Say Goodbye to Dark Spots- Guide to Improve Hyperpigmentation
Did you know that anything that irritates or inflames the skin can result in hyperpigmentation?
Dark spots and an uneven complexion develop over time. Some dominant causes include sun exposure, skin injuries, smoking, and hormone fluctuations.
Skin pigmentation is regulated by melanin production. A powerful way to enhance skin tone and improve the appearance of hyperpigmentation is to inhibit overactive melanin production and boost cell regeneration.
COMMON CAUSES OF UNEVEN SKIN TONE
ACNE: Breakouts are accompanied by redness, inflammation, and discomfort. Cystic breakouts, one of the more severe and common symptoms in Stage 3 and 4 acne, can cause stubborn pigmentation that can linger for months, and even longer.
ACNE TIP: If the skin is breaking out, it is important to attend to it immediately. The severity of acne can progress rapidly which increases the risk of acne scarring. Make sure you have a protocol in place to address the acne swiftly and head-on. If you need guidance, email us at Natpure@naturepure.com, a NATPURE Holistic Specialist will be happy to help.
SUN DAMAGE: Although sun exposure positively enables Vitamin D synthesis, it must be done safely and in micro-doses. Unprotected skin exposed to the sun stimulates melanogenesis which increases melanin production. As a result, melanin moves closer to the surface more rapidly and in greater amounts as a defense mechanism. Please remember to wear SPF daily, not only does it protect your skin from hyperpigmentation and premature aging, but statistically it dramatically lowers your risk of skin cancer.
Darker Skin Tone: Melanated skin, naturally higher on the Fitzpatrick scale is more susceptible to hyperpigmentation. This is generally because it has a higher melanin baseline. Melanin can be released into the surface more swiftly and easily, especially in areas with a heightened immune response, including in cases such as breakouts or injury.
TOP 3 TIPS TO IMPROVE YOUR SKIN TONE
🔥 Be Gentle: Being too rough with your skin can cause damage. This includes over-exfoliating or picking at your skin. The harm that it may cause can lead to PIH. Do not exfoliate more than 1-2 times a week, and never pick your skin, leave it to the professionals.
🍊 Vitamin C is Your Friend: Use an antioxidant-rich serum in your daily skin regimen. It will work to lighten dark spots and uneven pigment and will enhance the overall complexion. Nature Pure Award-Winning Black Currant C Serum holistic clinical blend effectively brightens, smooths texture, hydrates and promotes collagen production to achieve a brighter radiant glow.
💦Add Glycolic Acid In Your Routine: Glycolic acid is an alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) with the smallest molecular size which means it has the maximum penetration ability of all the AHAs. It works by chemically exfoliating and enhancing cell turnover which allows for new cell proliferation. As a result, hyperpigmentation is improved and the skin will look brighter and smoother with new skin replacing the old. Simultaneously glycolic acid works to correct the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
