After a certain age, many people start to develop less even skin tone, with darker spots and ruddiness. This condition, known as hyperpigmentation, is often the result of long-term sun exposure and other environmental factors.
Here are some of the most effective ways to address the damage:
Antioxidants– Daily application of antioxidants such as Vitamin C can help decrease redness and reduce uneven brown pigmentation. OZNaturals® Vitamin C Serum and Dragon’s Blood Serum contains a variety of powerful antioxidants including Vitamins C and E, Green Tea, Rose Hips as well as the super antioxidant Astaxanthin to address hyperpigmentation.
Retinol–Retinol works by promoting cellular renewal and collagen synthesis to improve skin texture, diminish brown spots and improve luminosity and glow. Our Pro-Retaxinol 2.5® Retinol Serum combines Retinol with proven antioxidants to improve the health and looks of hyperpigmentation. Follow with our Super Youth Retinol Moisturizer for an added dose of Vitamin A.
Exfoliation–Regular exfoliation removes dead skin cells, helps speed up cellular renewal and allows skincare products to work more effectively. Exfoliate two to three times a week with OZNaturals® Bamboo Enzyme Facial Scrub to allow the active ingredients in serums and moisturizers to penetrate the skin.
Glycolic Acid– Stronger chemical exfoliation, such as OZNaturals® 30% Glycolic Acid Peel, can yield even more dramatic results in terms of brightening the skin and fading brown spots.
Sunscreen– An important step to improve hyperpigmentation and avoiding future damage is to wear an SPF 30 sunscreen daily, rain or shine.
Getting rid of hyperpigmentation won’t happen overnight. However, with regular use of the products mentioned above, you can expect to see a more even skin tone and brighter, more youthful looking skin.
