Hyperpigmentation is the darkening of the skin, and it occurs when there is an excess of melanin, the brown pigment that produces normal skin colour, forms deposits in the skin.
Your dark spots can be caused by acne scarring, overexposure to the sun, a side effect of certain medications, skin injuries and hormonal changes. Sunspots appear on areas that have been exposed to the sun, like on the hands and face. Melasma spots are larger areas of darkened skin. They appear most often as a result of hormonal changes such as in pregnancy or women who take birth control pills. Freckles are small brown spots that can appear anywhere on the body but are most common on the face and arms. Freckles are an inherited characteristic.
Lighten brighten naturally – What causes uneven tone and discolouration?
The biggest enemy we have when it comes to our skin is the sun. Too much sun exposure, particularly over a number of years, can cause the overproduction of melanin, resulting in dark spots and patches on your skin.
Exposure to environmental and toxic stresses also can use discolouration, such as antibiotics, retinoids, and fabric dyes.
Medications such as birth control pills,non-steroidal medications, and chemotherapy drugs.
Skin conditions such as eczema and eczema could cause pigmentation.
Acne vulgaris is a common cause of inflammation.
Physical trauma to the skin such as chemical burns, exposure to extreme temperatures resulting in burns, surgeries, laser resurfacing treatments and other types of trauma could also cause hyperpigmentation.
Imbalances in hormones is a leading cause.
Lighten brighten naturally – How to reduce pigmentation and brighten skin.
Exfoliate – Exfoliation is a valuable treatment for unclogging pores, removing dull, dead skin cells and deep cleansing the skin. Your facial skin is tender and easily abraded, so exfoliating your face is to be done delicately with the right ingredients. Enzyme Exfoliation is a crucial step in your anti-aging skin care regime. These are really gentle on the skin but really effective in exfoliating dead and damaged skin cells and boost collagen, which makes your skin look clean and silky smooth.
Exfoliating every few days can really assist in brightening your complexion. Gentle, consistent exfoliation is also ideal if your skin is discoloured or shows signs of acne scarring.
Look at Fruit enzymes,beta hydroxy acids such as salicylic acid (derived from white willow bark), natural Vitamin C, Papaya, Pumpkin, Ananas Sativus (Bromelain) Extract,( Pineapple) Fruit Extract, Pyrus Malus (Apple) Extract, Lemon Peel, Pomegranate, Wheatgrass, Superoxide Dismutase, and Galactaric Acid.
Honey contains gluconic acid, which is a milder acid that gently exfoliates and brightens the appearance of your skin.
Exfoliating sugar scrubs and plant-based scrubs can also help. No matter what type of exfoliating you do, always protect your skin from environmental stressors with natural antioxidants like vitamin E and plant extracts and wear sunscreen with zinc oxide.
Protect – We absolutely must protect from environmental stressors. Hats and shade are best when you’re outside and zinc oxide is considered the safest sunscreen. Sun protection is important no matter what age you are. You need to focus on preventing skin damage and the aging effects associated with being out in the sun. Get serious about wearing sun protection every day. Invest in a high-quality mineral makeup product. Antioxidants in your diet are important to protect what’s going on inside.
Lighten brighten Naturally – Choose safe products that can lighten and brighten your skin. We do not recommend Hydroquinone or harsh, chemical bleaches.

Lighten brighten naturally – Home treatments.
Lemon juice: Applying it to your skin can help exfoliate and brighten skin tone. Apply the juice directly to the skin, let sit for a few minutes, and then rinse off. If you have sensitive skin, be careful, as lemon can be irritating to some people.
Turmeric: Newer research has discovered that in addition to being a powerful antioxidant, it can also even out skin tone. You can make your own mask by mixing turmeric with lemon juice—or for more sensitive skins, almond oil. Leave on skin for 10 minutes or so before rinsing off.
Green tea: In addition to all its health-promoting antioxidants, green tea was also found to help even skin tone. Apply cooled tea bags to the dark areas of skin and leave for 15 minutes or so, or make your own mask by mixing cooled tea with a banana, a little kiwi juice, or some rice flour.
