Fade your Pigmentation!
Sick of dealing with age spots and hyperpigmentation? The skin saint is here to help! Most people experience some form of pigmentation on their faces. This could be in the form of age spots, Melasma, PIH or just red or brown spots. It can be frustrating but the good news is that there are plenty of ways to combat the issue. Let’s see how we can even out our skin tone and fade away unwanted pigmentation!
What Causes Pigmentation?
There are many factors that can cause skin pigmentation. The most common is sun exposure. Exposure to the sun causes the body to produce more melanin to protect the skin, leading to dark spots. Skin inflammation, including post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH) can cause darkening of the skin. Melasma is pigmentation caused by hormonal changes, especially during pregnancy. Reactions to certain drugs and medical conditions such as Addison’s disease and hemochromatosis can also cause unwanted dark spots.
How Can I Fade Pigmentation?
The good news is that there are amazing products available to help even skin tone and lighten and brighten your complexion. Topical lighteners containing ingredients such as Azelaic Acid, Hydroquinone, Kojic Acid, Retinoids (including Tretinoin) and Vitamin C will effectively fade pigmentation when used consistently. Lighteners are compatible with sensitive skin, minimize the appearance of scars and even help prevent future pigmentation! If you have unwanted pigmentation, you’ll definitely want to get your hands on a lightener.
What Are Some Amazing Skin Lighteners?
Lucky for you, I have some great medical lighteners in my Skin Saint line! All of these are high quality medical grade products that WORK! Let’s take a look at some of the highlights for lightening and brightening the skin.
The Fader: Phyto-Fade NoQuinione Cream
This non-hydroquinone based skin brightening cream contains several botanical skin lightening agents, Kojic Acid, Garden Cress Extract, vitamins and antioxidants. They all work together to provide a powerful effect on pigmentation and age spots on the skin. This formula is not photo-sensitizing and increases the skin’s hydration by 88% within one hour of application. It also stops melanogenesis, which prevents further pigmentation, photo-aging and dark spots.
The Illuminator: Illumin8 Serum
This unique pigment clarifying serum addresses uneven production of melanin. A dynamic blend of Bearberry, Kojic, Salicylic, Azelaic and Fruit acids target areas of hyperpigmentation and acne scarring. It prevents UV cell damage, brightens the skin and is even great to use post-laser or microneedling to even discoloration. This is a great choice for acne-prone, oily skin.
The Brightener: IllumiBright Pads
These medically effective, high-dose pads contain hydroquinone (but can be made hydroquinone free), botanical skin brightening agents, antioxidants and skin-soothers to visibly brighten uneven skin tone, revitalize dull skin and relieve irritated skin.
