Hyperpigmentation in Darker Skin Tones

Hyperpigmentation is usually caused by two things: sun damage or some form of injury to the skin. According to Cosmetic Nurse Vanessa Lee, darker skin types are more prone to hyperpigmentation than lighter skin types. Because of this, even if we have a breakout that we may not even touch or pick at, it will stay brown on the skin for a couple of days up to a couple of months. Don’t worry, gorgeous! There is a bright side; it can be treated. 

Sunscreen and sun protection is a crucial step in treating and preventing hyperpigmentation. UV rays can make hyperpigmentation worse, so diligence is everything! Apply your sunscreen every single day- no days off. 

If you are struggling to get rid of hyperpigmentation, Vanessa’s got your back! The Dew & Go Microneedling Stamp with the Brighten Skin Brew contains three (vegan-friendly) powerhouse brightening ingredients: Licorice, Niacinamide, and Tranexamic Acid. The Dew & Go Stamp is a quick way to see amazing results with the least amount of downtime. It forces the skin to resurface and build collagen, so you will notice brighter, plumper, and tighter skin. The best part: it’s safe for all skin types! 

Brightening ingredients will be your best friend in getting rid of any unwanted hyperpigmentation. Vanessa recommends placing a brightening product on your face in the evening, right after cleansing the skin. Did you know that she chose each skin formulation with darker skin types’ susceptibility to hyperpigmentation in mind? Pigment Remedy is ready to take on any hyperpigmentation issues in the skin. MSM and natural skin brighteners are key to kissing your scars, sunspots, and uneven skin tone goodbye. You’ll be radiating and loving the skin you’re in!
