Hyperpigmentation and How to Treat It
You asked, so we sought out advice from the pros! Everyone wants to know what Hyperpigmentation is and they want to know how to treat it …
So we called our skin specialist and got the real tea!
What is it? Hyperpigmentation is a common, usually harmless condition in which patches of skin become darker in color than the normal surrounding skin. This darkening occurs when an excess of melanin, the brown pigment that produces normal skin color, forms deposits in the skin.
It can be a result of anything really … skin trauma, bug bites, irritation, a sore you scratched … anything! The good news is … it can fade! But how?
The first initial step is to: PREVENT.
How do we do that? Sunscreen! Yes, sunscreen is for people of color, believe it or not. It doesn’t just prevent us from cancer, it also prevents us from over-exposure and hyperpigmentation because it helps us avoid pigment deposition on the skin. So make sure you’re using the correct amount of sunscreen , and often. SPF30, reapplying every few hours based on what the instructions read.
Next Up the step is to: HEAL.
How do we heal? We heal our skin through cleansing and allowing it to rest. YELLE’s Awakening Milk and Honey Cleanser is perfect for ensuring that we properly clean our face in the gentlest way. It’s plant-based ingredient list is full of antioxidants that help repair the skin, like Vitamin C.
After we’ve healed, the next step in treating hyperpigmentation is to: RENEW.
How do we renew? Simple … exfoliate! Each time you exfoliate, you’re gently removing dead skin cells. In terms, this removes our damaged skin, and encouraging our skin to product new cells, which gives us healthy new skin to maintain.
Yes, you can totally use an exfoliant once a week, but for simple every-day exfoliating, YELLE’s Awakening Toner is perfect for sweeping the day away. It’s organic and herbal infused ingredients make it easy for maintaining fresh healthy skin.
