Care products for hyperpigmentation


    Hyperpigmentation refers to small to medium-sized spots on the skin that are darker than the rest of the areas. These so-called pigment or age spots can be brown, yellowish or reddish in color and can have various causes.

    In any case, an increased melanin level is responsible for the spots. Melanin is the pigment responsible for the coloring of skin, hair and eyes. An increase in melanin levels can be caused by hormonal fluctuations, such as during pregnancy, by medications, cosmetics or sunlight to be triggered. In many cases, the spots disappear on their own after a while, but it can happen, especially in older people over 50, that the pigment spots persist. In these cases, skin care products with brightening and smoothing properties can help vitamin C provide remedial action. But other natural active ingredients such as vitamin A acid, licorice root or niacinamide can also alleviate hyperpigmentation and prevent the formation of new spots.
