Hyperpigmentation is a stubborn and unflattering problem that causes dark spots and circles on the skin. If you’re faced with hyperpigmentation, it can seem like you’re spending hours in research and elbow grease trying to solve it. Luckily, there are many methods- both home remedy and professional- that can help to get rid of hyperpigmentation once and for all!
Fruits containing citric acid help to bleach the skin without damaging it. There are many ways you can add lemon to your daily skincare routine. You can apply lemon directly to your face with a face mask that’s equal parts honey and lemon juice, you can add a small amount of lemon extract to your moisturizer, or you can apply raw lemon directly to dark spots! Just make sure you thoroughly rinse afterward because lemon juice can get sticky!
Raw potatoes contain an enzyme called catecholase that helps lighten the skin tone. This makes it an asset in tackling blemishes and dark spots. You can apply thin slices of raw potato to your face like a sheet mask for 20 minutes, or you can extract the potato juice and apply it overnight!
Exfoliation is the act of removing dead skin cells from the skin. If the first layer of skin contains the hyperpigmentation, then exfoliation will help to get rid of the tricky skin cells on that top layer, leaving it soft and smooth. There are many ways to exfoliate the skin, from home remedies like sugar scrubs or going in for a professional facial.
Pure aloe vera offers a multitude of benefits for the skin. It’s a natural cleanser that removes dead skin cells and helps to regenerate new ones. Like exfoliation, aloe will help to get rid of the dark spots on that top layer of dead skin. It Also helps reverse and soothe the damage done by harmful UV rays to the skin.
This is a method used by most professionals using a microdermabrasion tool to stimulate new cell growth and regeneration. When the skin is encouraged to grow new cells, the old dead cells containing the hyperpigmentation can be removed through exfoliation. You can get your skin professionally Microderm or do it from home with the proper tools
