What Is Hyperpigmentation and How To Get Rid of It
Having hyperpigmentation means constantly trying not to touch the acne, cuts, or pimples on your face and hoping they don’t leave dark marks.
People with darker skin can run a higher risk of developing dark spots and uneven skin tone because they’re more sensitive to factors that can cause or further develop hyperpigmentation, such as sun exposure. The more a dark spot is exposed to the sun, the darker it becomes in comparison with lighter skin surrounding it. Without proper prevention practices in place, the struggle to get rid of it becomes tougher.
Acne is one of the main culprits of hyperpigmentation because the infected area is inflamed, which can eventually lead to scarring. Picking and squeezing don’t help.
The best approach to the skin is to not over treat it but, literally, a hand’s off approach — applying less product and applying it less frequently is more effective than standing in the mirror with a minute-to-minute application.
That said, there are simple steps that, over time, can help dark spots, or hyperpigmentation, go away, and can lead you to the glow up you deserve.
In the name of blemish-free skin, let’s uncomplicate this process:
What Causes Hyperpigmentation
