Have you ever dealt with hyperpigmentation?
The condition is caused by an overproduction of melanin and appears as dark spots on the skin. The risk of developing hyperpigmentation is higher if you have acne-prone skin as acne can lead to post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation.
Although dark spots aren’t permanent, it could take weeks or months to get rid of them. So how do you treat hyperpigmentation? Consider adding these Korean skin care products to your routine to fade those pesky dark spots!
Fading hyperpigmentation can take a while. If you’re concerned by the lack of progress, try adding toner pads to your routine. NEOGEN’s re:p Organic Cotton Treatment Toning Pads are gentle enough to use daily and great for lightening dark spots. Soaked in herbal water, these toning pads slough off dead skin cells and boost skin’s moisture levels. Use one pad after cleansing and before applying your ampoule or serum.
Vitamin C Serums
Vitamin C helps reduce the formation of melanin, so incorporating a Vitamin C serum into your skin care ritual is extremely helpful for fading post-acne dark spots. By Wishtrend’s Pure Vitamin C 15% with Ferulic Acid is great for improving discoloration while also evening out skin tone. You don’t have to worry about skin irritation as the formula is gentle enough for sensitive skin. It’s also a great choice for oily or combination skin types.
Brightening Face Masks
Adding brightening masks to your daily regimen is the easiest way to address hyperpigmentation.
