For all the ladies that love to walk in the sun, hyperpigmentation is the nightmare you can’t escape. It can make spots or patches of skin appear darker than surrounding areas that get constant sun exposure, including the face.

Having extra pigment in some areas of skin is usually harmless but can sometimes indicate another medical condition. As a skin condition, hyperpigmentation ranges from small localized dark spots to large areas such as melasma in the face. Let’s take a look at causes of hyperpigmentation & ingredients that aid recovery from this problem and give it the Closure it needs!




1. Sun Exposure

The body produces more melanin to protect the skin from prolonged exposure to the sun. This can cause dark spots or patches on the skin called age spots or sun spots.


2. Skin Inflammation

Inflamed areas of skin are more prone to darken under the sun. This can cause problems like acne, eczema, or an injury to the skin. People with darker skin are more likely to develop post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation.


3. Alcohol-Based Products

Your favorite perfume may even cause your skin to darken. When applying perfume, avoid spraying it directly to non-covered areas such as the skin and the arms. Spray your fragrance underneath your clothes instead.


4. A Side Effect Of A Laser Procedure

Apart from sun exposure, hyperpigmentation could be a result of hormonal shifts, a side effect of a laser procedure, and irritation of the skin as a reaction from certain drugs. You might want to see a dermatologist the moment you notice unusual skin discoloration on your end.


The best way to prevent hyperpigmentation is quite simple- load up on vitamin C and hydrate your skin!


Ingredients that help with hyperpigmentation-

1.Jujube: Protects the skin from oxidative damage, promotes even skin tone.

    A rich source of vitamin C that stimulates the production of new collagen. Jujube fruits are loaded with anti-histaminic properties. It helps to stabilize mast cells that modulate immune properties and prevents allergic reactions. Jujube fruit is an excellent anti-aging agent. As this fruit contains high amounts of vitamin C, this helps prevent wrinkles, melanin deposition and pigmentation.


    2. Lactic Acid:Stimulates the renewing action and favors a hydrating action that protects the skin.

    Lactic acid is specifically used to treat hyperpigmentation, age spots, and other factors that contribute to a dull and uneven complexion. Ahas that act as exfoliants, they also work to lighten uneven pigmentation and smooth out skin texture. Lactic acid is the best researched AHA after glycolic to retain moisture.


    3. Cocoa Fruit: Cocoa powder helps in epidermal rejuvenation.

      Rich in antioxidants, many anti-aging creams contain Cocoa as it prevents the skin from getting wrinkle marks. It lightens pigmentation and supports collagen synthesis to reduce enzymatic collagen degradation.


      4. Bhibhitaka: Stimulates tissue oxygenation resulting in brighter skin tone.

        Bibhitaka is a brilliant ingredient for rejuvenating skin: if you are looking for dewy and supple skin, this ingredient helps in softening, moisturizing and smoothening the skin.
