How can I reduce my hyperpigmentation?

One of the things we love to do here at GlowwBox is find answers to your most pressing beauty questions.

In our new in-box magazine ‘Gloww’ featured in our January ‘Best of British’ Edition, we shared some solutions to an important question on how to deal with hyperpigmentation.

So read below for an excerpt of some of the advice we shared on how you could improve hyperpigmentation.

Hyperpigmentation is caused by our body producing too much of the brown pigment called melanin. By doing so it produces a darkened area of skin which is what we refer to as hyper pigmentation.

Now, one of the most frequented myths told by people with darker skin tones, is that they do not need to use sunscreen. Wrong! One of the triggers of hyperpigmentation is exposure to sunlight especially for those who are more predisposed to this skin condition. Sun protection is a must for ALL skin types and in ALL seasons. Choose a high SPF (30 or above) and make sure you use it daily.

Be gentle with your skin and seek professional advice if you are unsure!
