3 Ways to treat and prevent hyperpigmentation in the summer

As much as we enjoy the sandy beaches and summertime glow the warmer months have to offer, the increase in hyperpigmentation isn’t one of them. From discoloration to freckles and dark spots, hyperpigmentation takes on many forms. But that being said, it isn’t impossible to treat or prevent them. SO, here are three things you can do

Acid-based exfoliates
Look for products that contain ‘tyrosinase inhibitors’ (tyrosinase is an enzyme that encourages melanin production) such as azelaic acid, hydroquinone, kojic acid, or retinoic acid

Vitamin loaded serums
Consider a vitamin C, vitamin A or vitamin B3 serum to help brighten and even out your complexion.

Avoid photosensitive ingredients
Some ingredients can also cause photo-sensitivity, making the skin more reactive to the sun’s rays. Ingredients like some essential oils, particularly citrus, hydroxy acids, and retinoids can make the skin more reactive in the sun and are best avoided prior to UV exposure.

  1. Most people I talk to are oblivious to the fact that shampoos that grow your hair faster and longer (obviously with no sulfates, no parabens or DEA) exist. People can now attain longer hair and experience more options. Certainly worth exploring.

    Whether you’re thinking about alopecia, damaged hair, preventing skin disorders, fast hair growth, hair care normally, very similar ideas actualize.

    In general, you have to stay away from hair products and treatments that use chemicals like parabens, DEA or sulfates.

    What is healthy for your hair is beneficial for your skin also.

    Clearly your content on this page is so useful for many reasons. It steers away from the common traps and errors so many fall into- getting defective alternatives. Greatly appreciated!
