Every skin type needs proper care. Some skins are a bit easier than others. Skin with too much pigmentation can use some extra attention and will benefit greatly from using the right products for this skin type. Sun protection is also extra important for this skin type, we'll get to that later.
In this article you can read how to properly care for skin with too much pigment and which products we recommend for this.
What is excess pigmentation?
An excess of pigment in the skin is called hyperpigmentation. This can occur on the face, but also on the rest of the body. It is caused by an overproduction of melanin: the skin's own protection against the sun, a kind of natural sunscreen. The overproduction of melanin can be caused by exposure to the sun, but also by hormones, old age or after an inflammation in the skin, such as acne. The excess pigmentation is not easy to remove with care products, but the right products can ensure that the excess pigment is less noticeable and does not get worse.
Don't do with pigmentation
Although there are several causes for pigmentation on the skin, there is one thing that makes all types of pigmentation worse: exposure to the sun. Going into the sun unprotected will make the spots darker and more visible. Spots that are smeared can also darken slightly in the sun, but rubbing the skin with a good sunscreen certainly helps.
Care of the skin with an excess of pigmentation
First of all, a good cleaning of the skin is important, as with any skin type. The hannah Cleansing Milk is a good choice that refreshes and soothes the skin. Finally, the Crystal Orange scrub gel from Cenzaa is recommended: it removes dirt and sebum and improves the complexion.
Another form of cleansing that benefits skin with an excess of pigmentation is the regular use of a peeling. At Het Cosmeticahuis we have various peels in the range that lighten the skin slightly and can lighten the dark spots. An example is and the Cenzaa Illuminating Skin Peel .
After a good cleaning, a cream can also push the discoloration of the skin in the right direction. A perfect cream for this is the Tyro Ultimate Dark Spot Corrector . This product has an advanced skin discoloration correcting technology for a beautiful, more even skin. This product even works into the deeper layers of the skin. Tyro's Ultimate Dark Spot Corrector is a complexion brightening face cream for radiant, even skin.
The most important thing for people with an excess of pigmentation in the skin is good sun protection throughout the day, to prevent the pigmentation spots from darkening.
