Hyperpigmentation – The Causes, Prevention Plan, And Remedies

Hyperpigmentation changes the color of parts of your skin into a different shade. The skin tone can change into patches of brown, black, gray, pink, or red based on the original skin complexion. The uneven skin tone looks awkward, and it’s tough to blend makeup. Most people use lightening creams to bleach the skin and make it look even. Modern dermatological treatments like laser peel, chemical peel, dermabrasion, and microdermabrasion help to remove and heal hyperpigmentation. Some people use face acids and retinoid-based creams, sunscreens, and moisturizers. Apart from all these advanced treatment options, some people also go for home remedies. Here at Sooni and Tommi, we have a selection of products that help to prevent and treat hyperpigmentation. You can visit the link, choose your products, and add them to your daily skincare routine.

Avoid Direct Sunlight: Hyperpigmentation can be hereditary. It can come because of the use of hormone pills, injury, or natural hormonal changes. But for the majority of people, the common cause is often sunlight. Please avoid direct sunlight and stay indoors. If possible, don’t go out around mid-noon as the rays of the sun are harsher. If you have no other choice, please follow the tips given in the link to avoid sunburn or tanning. Direct and prolonged exposure creates an imbalance in melanin production and finally leads to hyperpigmentation. If you are involved in outdoor sports or work, you should take precautions to protect your skin from the sun. 

Cover Your Face: Some have skin that is allergic to heat, sun exposure, and hormonal changes. If so, please cover your face while going out during the day. Hyperpigmentation affects the face more as the facial skin is sensitive and soft. If you are a woman, you can use a matching scarf or an ornamental hat to prevent the sun’s race from directly hitting your face. Men can go for caps with visors. Both genders can carry an umbrella. Sometimes even caps and hats cannot give full coverage, so ensure you fully cover the face and neck from the sun’s rays. Some people are allergic to sunscreens. In that case, covering your face before venturing is a must. Even if it’s a rainy day, carry a cover as the weather changes are uncertain.

Use Sunscreen: Korean Beauty products have a lot of sun care products. When the sun is up, you need high SPF products. Some BB creams come with SPF. Sooni and Tommi have a separate section for sunscreen products. The Dr. G Brightening Up Sun and Innisfree long-lasting sunscreen are good options. You can personally visit Sooni and Tommi, check each product’s description section, and decide on the one that suits you. Apply a generous amount of powerful sunscreen all over the sun-exposed skin. When you go to the beach in summer, apply sunscreen all over the body, or you will return to your room in a different color.

Try Home Remedies: Aloe Vera is the natural skin for your skin. The gel also prevents and heals acne. You can use the natural gel for the aloe vera plant or a store-bought gel. It soothes the skin, and 2012 study statistics say it’s a natural hyperpigmentation remedy that is non-toxic. Dermatological treatments for hyperpigmentation may give quick results. While natural remedies take some time but they have zero side effects. It is good to prevent hyperpigmentation before it significantly affects your skin. Once it affects you, try home remedies before using other chemical procedures. Pigmentation treatments pull the pigmented cells to the top, which increases the melanin presence temporarily. So, you may feel it is darker than usual, but it’s temporary, and your regular skin will emerge in a few days.

Add More Vitamin C: Ascorbic acid is the best to fight against skin darkening and gingival pigmentation. Most Vitamin C beauty products help restore the original complexion without side effects, using only natural ingredients. Sun protection beauty products help you prevent pigmentation, whereas many products on the market help you treat and heal pigmentation like Vitamin C serums. Sooni and Tommi have an astounding number of Vitamin C-based beauty products. You can visit Sooni and Tommi for more details. But please choose Vitamin C gels and serums. You can try Goodal green tangerine vita C serum, Goodal green tangerine vita C toner, and the set also has a suitable cream. Many Korean Beauty products have Vitamin C. You can also take a Vitamin C supplement or citrus fruits.

Eye And Lip Care: Laser and chemical peels for eyes and lips are not entirely safe. It’s risky, so it’s good to go for a natural home remedy. Appling raw milk around your eyes is a better option. At Sooni and Tommi, we have mild and soothing beauty products for eyes and lips. If you sleep early and reduce screen time, you won’t get dark circles. Similarly, avoid smoking to preserve your soft lips. Dehydration is the primary cause of dry and chapped lips. Drink ample water and take fruit juices instead of tea and coffee. Follow the winter care routine to protect your lips if it’s winter. Use good quality petroleum jelly or lip balm.

Obesity also causes hormonal imbalance and leads to hyperpigmentation. If the dark skin spreads or darkens further, please consult a well-qualified dermatologist. Timely medical intervention can help a lot. Inform them about your diet and the creams you apply to your face. Sometimes even poor diet and deficiencies can be the reason for hyperpigmentation. Try to maintain a healthy lifestyle and keep your weight under control.
