THE BEST ROUTINE FOR HYPERPIGMENTATION

Feeling lost in the dark about hyperpigmentation? We're here to help!

Some hyperpigmentation is genetic while other cases are caused by acne or exposure to the sun. Luckily there are ways to treat it, no matter how it starts.

Start by integrating Vitamin C and a Retinoid into your routine. With time and persistence, you should start to see results. And remember, sun exposure tends to make all hyperpigmentation more stubborn, so don't leave the house without SPF!

Scroll down to be enlightened about the best hyperpigmentation routine.

Step-By-Step




Step One: A brightening cleanser

When you want brighter, more even-toned skin, every step counts. Start the day (and finish the evening) with our Clarifying Cleanser — a potent combination of Glycolic and Lactic Acids work to gently refine the skin and bring back your glow.

  • Oily Skin
  • Acne-Prone
Make a clear difference with this creamy exfoliating cleanser. The non-foaming formula helps clear away dirt, oil and debris that can lead to breakouts and blackheads—without leaving skin tight or dry. A blend of Salicylic, Glycolic and Lactic Acids sweep away build-up on skin’s surface, and penetrate deep inside pores to unclog oil and impurities.




Step Two: HYDRATE AND PROTECT

SPF not only prevents new hyperpigmentation from forming, it plays the all-important role of helping it to fade ASAP by protecting against UV rays. Our 2-in-1 Energizing Day Moisturizer combines SPF30 with Basil and Green Tea for an extra-brightening kick.

  • Dull Skin
  • Fine Lines
A Green Tea infused moisturizer (with SPF30!) that fights free radicals and fine lines. We recommend this as a daytime moisturizer.




Step Three: REFINE AND GLOW

One of the best ways to reduce hyperpigmentation (yes, along with religious SPF use), is with an effective Retinoid serum. Retinoids work to increase cell-turnover, making for more even-toned, smoother skin. But! We decided that we could do better — so we threw in two other brightening heroes: Vitamin C and Alpha Arbutin.

  • Oily Skin
  • Acne-Prone
Formulated with 1% Granactive Retinoid, this silky overnight serum reduces the appearance of blemishes (and prevents new ones from forming!), visibly brightens up dullness and discoloration, and helps smooths the look of rough texture from past breakouts. Vitamin C and Hyaluronic Acid work synergistically to reveal a clearer, smoother, and brighter complexion.
