What is Pigmentation?
Pigmentation is a very common skin concern that affects people of all ages and ethnicities. It can be caused by a variety of factors such as sun exposure, hormonal changes, and genetics. It can show up as sun spots, age spots, acne scarring, melasma, and general discolouration.
Treat it naturally
One effective way to address pigmentation and dark patches on skin is by using natural organic skincare products. Unlike conventional skincare products that may contain harsh chemicals that can cause irritation and further damage to the skin, natural organic skincare products are gentle and free of synthetic fragrances, dyes, and preservatives.
Here are some natural ingredients that can help treat pigmentation and help achieve an even skin tone:
Vitamin C - Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that helps to brighten the skin and reduce the appearance of pigmentation. Our Serum of Plenty contains a high concentration (15%) of vitamin C in its purest form, so you get the most benefits. Apply it to your skin in the morning before moisturising. We have customers who see a difference within 2 days!
Liquorice Root Extract - Liquorice root extract has been shown to have powerful skin-brightening properties and can help to reduce the appearance of pigmentation. You can find it in our Serum of Clear, which also helps exfoliate dead skin cells leaving it brighter and healthier than ever.
Aloe Vera - Aloe vera is known for its soothing and anti-inflammatory properties and redness associated with pigmentation. We use aloe vera as the first ingredient in a few of our products, such as Super Citrus Cleanser, Super Fruit Toner, and Super Fruit Hydrator, and Purple Power Mask.
Sunscreen - Sun exposure is one of the main causes of pigmentation, so it's essential to protect your skin with a broad-spectrum sunscreen! Ours are specially formulated to rub in clear, and won’t break you out. Plus, it’s especially important to follow up any kind of active serum with a sunscreen if you’re using it in the morning, as they can make you more prone to sunburn.
Don’t forget to take before and after photos of your progress, so you can clearly see the difference in your pigmentation!
