Skincare regimen for Hyperpigmentation and sun spots

Hyperpigmentation and pre-mature aging appears when you have exposed your skin to too much sun. Either sunbathing, use of suntanning beds, getting too many sunburns as a kid or simply not using sunscreens!

Sun damage will show up in two ways:

  • Sun spots: tanning is the normal response of the skin to sun exposure, cells called melanocytes produce melanin, this clear pigment if exposed to sunlight will turn brown and accumulate over the nucleus of the cell to protect the cell.
  • Lines: UVA and UVB penetrates the skin, damaging collagen, elastin, cells, evn DNA (carcinoma)
You cannot reverse sun damage, at best you can evenout the skin tone and make sure it does not get worse! 

The solution is to exfoliate dark pigmented cells and shield the skin from UVA and UVB.

  • At night use Retinol peeling creams such as A 313 or Pevonia Micro retinol cream
  • During the day use a lightening serum followed by a Vitamin C cream
  • Apply your sunscreen 3-4 times a day (try Brush-on-block a powder SPF 30)
  • If you have recurring pigmentation (melasma) the latest research suggest it is triggered by the blue wavelength of the visible light and the blue light is stopped by iron oxides ( use Pevonia tinted cream or Image tinted SPF 30)
  • Prepare your skin 4 weeks prior to sun exposure with Jaldes Oxelio topique oil
