Skin pigmentation from sun damage, acne scars or ageing is a common problem I find a lot of customers come to us for advice on. If you suffer with an uneven skin tone, with dark spots or patches of pigmentation, it can make you feel incredibly self conscious. But there is no need to be! 80 percent of women are affected by pigmentation from a variety of causes at some point in their lifetime, so you are not alone. 

Let's take a look at some of causes of pigmentation.

Sun Damage

If you were a sun worshipper in your 20's and 30's and weren't strict with the sun protection, then you may experience some level of pigmentation. It can take years for sun damage to form on the skin, so whilst you probably thought you weren't doing that much damage to your skin at the time, you certainly will be long term. 

Melasma

Stimulated by hormonal changes from the menopause, birth control pills, stress, the sun and even fragrance in products (just one of the reasons why its best to never use products with synthetic fragrance!). 

Post Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation

This type of pigmentation will gradually fade. It is the skins natural response to damage from acne, burns, friction or harsh clinical treatments (such as chemical peels or dermabrasion). The skin will appear darker, red, brown or greyish in colour where the skin has been damaged, the pigmentation will darken if it is exposed to the sun for a prolonged period of time. So make sure you wear an SPF daily to prevent it from getting worse.

How to Treat Your Pigmentation

The great news is that there are several natural products on the market that can help even out the tone of your skin. It takes regular use of these skincare products to see results, so keep up your skincare routine and you will notice the pigmentation starting to fade within 1-3 months. 

Supermood - The Luxury Peel Mask

Use this mask once a week to stimulate exfoliation of the skin and to gently peel away dead skin cells and fade pigmentation. Organic Seabuckthorn Fruit Juice will help to strengthen and repair the skin, as well as provide anti-inflammatory properties and fade darkened areas. Apple Fruit Extract will gently nibble away at the dead skin cells and ensure pores are left completely clean and clear, reducing the risk of blemishes and revealing brighter skin.

I would like to ask about the Hynt Sun Prep. How it can be “broad spectrum” if only contains titanium dioxide? I thought that the only physical active sunscreen ingredient, which can give broad spectrum protection is zinc oxide. This is the reason why many brands used it in their sunscreen products alone or mixed it with titanium dioxide. I heard a lot of amazing review about this cream and I would like to try it, but I’m hesitating because of this.

Finally, I got my point after reading your article. Please let me know

UV rays and skin aging can lead to Skin Pigmentation Disorders in women. How do they develop and how can they be effectively treated?

Best Regards
