How to get rid of Hyper pigmentation


A: Pigmentation is the coloring of a person's skin. When a person is healthy, his or her skin will appear normal in color. In the case of illness or injury, the person's skin may change color, becoming darker (hyperpigmentation) or lighter (hypopigmentation)

Q: Why does Hyper Pigmentation happen?
A: Hyperpigmentation results from the increased deposition of melanin, which causes the skin to become darker in patches. Melanin is part of skin barrier defense system in that it protects against exposure to UVR and pigmented blemishes are almost always the result of excessive stimulation by sunlight

What are the Best ways to treat Hyper Pigmentation: 

The best "treatment' for this condition is preventative treatment. Since pigment and the amount of melanin in your body will ultimately determine pigment and since the sun actually browns or reddens the skin, the best advice is to stay out of the sun as much as possible. Obviously, if you are exposed to the sun, you should look into using a sun screen. Broad spectrum sun screens are the best.

After the acne itself is successfully treated and under complete control, people sometimes opt to try one or more of the treatments listed below.

Retinoids: a topical treatment can help fade marks. 
Peels: Salicylic acid peels
Microdermabrasion & Exfoliation 

On a personal note I am a BIG fan of these products: I have used them and have gotten benefit from using them. These are not run of the mill products they have TARGETED and EFFECTIVE ingredients in them.

Mela- D Serum

What it's used for:
Obtain the uniform complexion that you long for with this concentrated serum for hyper pigmentation. Dark spots fade with lightening kojic acid, while a blend of micro-exfoliating LHA and glycolic acid removes dark dead cells from skin's surface, for more even-toned coloring. It’s designed for the face and neck, is lightweight and absorbs quickly for ease of use. With consistent application, you’ll notice a dramatic reduction in the appearance of dark spots on your skin

My thoughts: This stuff is MAGIC it's light weight and easy yo use. 
it does not bog my skin down or m=remind me that I am using it all day. It doesn't have a strong smell and can be used ALL over the Face neck and Chet. 

see review HERE:

What it's used for:
The complete skin lightening daily lotion, Mela-D is suitable for sensitive skin. This breakthrough technology: Lightens: 2% Hydroquinone inhibits melanin production. Exfoliates: LHA patented technology provides targeted, precise micro-exfoliation. Protects: UVA/UVB sunscreen patented combination of octocrylene & Parsol 1789.

My Thoughts:
I absolutely LOVE this stuff... It helps out with ACNE and BREAKOUTS... It protects you from the sun and treat hyper pigmentation. I feel as though it is worth EVEY penny and have gone through two tubes of it. I still use if for sun screen on cloudy and rainy days but go for something heavier duty in the summer and or during the day! 

Can be PURCHASED here: 

SUNSCREEN is a VERY important ingredient in protection from hyper pigmented skin. Here are the ones I think are SUPERIOR 

What it is:
An ultra lightweight sunscreen with a soft, matte finish.

What it's used for:
This lightweight sunscreen formula is designed for normal to combination skin types. It offers a soft, matte finish that never appears greasy or feels heavy. The highly effective formula provides two forms of protection against UV damage. An advanced UV filtering system is boosted by a potent antioxidant complex that promises complete protection against UVA and UVB rays. Plus, it's non-comedogenic, water-resistant and photostable for longer-lasting protection.

My Thoughts: Now, I didn't grow up using sunscreen. Though I wish I had.... If I decide to have children they WILL> The sun is no joke. Most sunscreens are. Most sunscreen are NOT PHOTO STABLE. Which means; when the sun hits them, they begin to #FAIL... This one however has prove to be AMAZING. I have heard story after story of women who "didn't burn ONE bit" on there vacation... or who's kids used this at camp and didn't burn ALL summer.... ok.. so can black skin burn? YES it can.. it's just not as  visible as when lighter skin does. This protects me when I'm hiking and I come home WITHOUT tan lines... Some people think they're cute.. I think it's a sign of SKON DAMAGE! 

Dermabrasion and EXFOLIATION

What it is:
A delicate exfoliator made with micospheres and hydro-fruits. 

What it's used for:
Bring out the best in your skin with Lierac Paris Soin Exfoliant - Exfoliating Face Care, by washing away dull skin and revealing new, healthy skin cells. Non-abrasive exfoliants, papaya and peach, help cell turnover in the skin, while polyethelene microspheres further buff the skin for a refreshed complexion. This gentle exfoliating formula will help even skin tone and regain loss of radiance.  

My Thoughts: THIS is THE MOST A M A Z I N G exfoliator I have EVER used... and for $34 it had better be. WHY is is SO  A M A Z I N G you ask? Well it all in the regulation or oil and the PERFECTLY round DIAMON hard micro crystal that make my face/body hands and NECK feel like they have NEVER felt... It's phenomenal! I have never felt a more amazing clean fresh SMMOTH face than when I use this!  

What it is:
A remarkably effective electronic facial clarifying brush that cleanses and refreshes.

What it's used for:
The Classic Skin Care System is an innovative approach to facial cleansing that utilizes a flexible, dual brush design and oscillating movements to loosen and remove impurities while clarifying the skin. Repetitive motions stimulate circulation in skin and wash away dirt and residue for a rejuvenated, fresh feel and appearance.

My Thoughts: The first time I used this I was HOOKED I am a BIG FAN of EXFOLIATION! I do it DAILY I love Mechanical (machine) Manual (hand) and Chemical (products) I really am intrigued by sonic Technology for face and tooth care. This machine keeps my face glowing and BLEMISH free for the most part. It's well worth the money as you NEVR have to buy batteries it's easy to travel with and you can easily buy replacement heads for your unit. It you have NEVER used a CLARISONIC to cleanse your face... I think it's safe to say your face has NEVER been cleansed. 

Below is an INEXPENSIVE Alternative to the Clarisonic! Click HERE to See my BLOG POST on this Product.  You can also Check it out or PURCHASE it Here



Antioxidants for Sun Damage and Wrinkles

Antioxidants are natural substances made up of vitamins and minerals. They have the ability to fight "free radicals" -- unstable compounds that attack human cells and damage DNA. Damaged skin cells can lead to accelerated aging in the form of wrinkles, dry skin, dark circles under eyes, dull skin, and more.



A 2002 study showed that caffeine applied to the skin of mice may fend off skin cancer, attacking tumors before they fully form and healing the skin. Since then, skin-care companies have worked furiously to add it to their products, and it is now available in lotions and creams.


Alpha-hydroxy Acids (AHAs)

This group of natural-based acids found in a vast number of skin-care products includes glycolic, lactic, citric, and tartaric acids. Glycolic acid was the original AHA and remains popular for its ability to remove dead skin cells and leave skin smoother, softer, and more radiant.

Vitamin C

As you age, your body slows down its production of collagen and elastin, which keeps skin strong, flexible, and resilient. Evidence suggests that the antioxidants found in vitamin C may stimulate the production of collagen and minimize fine lines, wrinkles, and scars.


Salicylic Acid

Salicylic acid is used in many over-the-counter and prescription products to treat acne. It penetrates pores and reduces blackheads and whiteheads, with less irritation than may occur with alpha hydroxy acids. Like AHAs, salicylic acid exfoliates the skin, which can reduce signs of aging.

Hyaluronic Acid

Hyaluronic acid is incorporated into skin-care products to reduce the effects of aging. Your body produces hyaluronic acid naturally, keeping tissues cushioned and lubricated. It's found in skin, joint fluid, and connective tissues. Age, smoking, and an unhealthy diet lead to drops in production over time.
Products containing hyaluronic acid may help smooth out skin. It's especially effective when combined with vitamin C products.

Green Tea Extract

Like antioxidants, the polyphenols found in tea also have been shown to fight free radicals. Drinking green tea may help ward off cancer, infection, and cardiovascular disease.
Early studies have found the ingredients in tea can reduce sun damage and may protect skin from skin cancer when applied topically. Using green tea extract under sunscreen may yield a double dose of protection. An anti-inflammatory, polyphenols in creams and lotions may also slow signs of aging and reduce sagging skin and wrinkles.

  5. I have very bad hyper pigmentation. I just came across your video on YouTube and it lead me to your blog. My question is, when you wear makeup, how and when is everything applied? Do you need sunscreen if you wear makeup? If you use the Clarsonic device, is it used with and exfoliant?

  6. Hey Destiny,

    I just recently watched your video about hyper pigmentation and I was immediately interested.

  11. These are useful for getting rid of hyperpigmentation at home.Thanks for sharing this wonderful post.

  12. At first glance hyperpigmentation may seem unenchanting, however its study is a necessity for any one wishing to intellectually advance beyond their childhood. Indispensable to homosapians today, it is impossible to overestimate its impact on modern thought. The juxtapositioning of hyperpigmentation with fundamental economic, social and political strategic conflict draws criticism from the upper echelons of progressive service sector organisations, whom I can say no more about due to legal restrictions.

  13. Thank you for sharing this very nice spa product. I wish it would help me. New chapter tiny tabs

  14. Keep your youth alive by taking a glass of Pure Goji Berry Juice. It is a very energetic juice with lots of skin benefits. Taking this organic fruit juice regularly can prevent many chronic diseases.

  15. Spotted skin, scars and acne marks make you feel embarrassed and hurt self-esteem as well. Many of us opt for cosmetics and other products to get rid of acne residues. There are many home remedies which have proven their effects on lightening these skin marks. Tomato and Lemon Juice: Take a “fresh tomato” and make its paste. Mix it well with one tablespoon of lemon juice. Apply the paste on face for around 20 minutes and rinse it off gently with water after 20 minutes. Pulp of Aloe Vera: Let the pulp from Aloe Vera dry for 5 minutes in sun. Add 6-8 drops of lemon juice to it and apply on the affected area and face for 15 minutes. Onions: Cut the onion into small pieces. Grind those pieces and separate the juice from the residue. Apply the juice for few minutes on the affected skin and rinse after 10 minutes. Cucumber and Milk: Make a paste out of cucumber, milk and a bit of lime extract. It will serve as a face mask. Apply thoroughly and wash it with warm water after 10 minutes. You must consider a visit to dermatologist in severity of the condition. But, these home remedies are proven effective in getting rid of acne marks, black spots, pimples and dark spots.

  16. Many treatments use a combination of topical lotions or gels along with a sunscreen. Skin Pigmentation Treatment
