Acne, Dark Spots, and Hyperpigmentation: The Truth.

Acne, Dark Spots, and Hyperpigmentation: The Truth. - Yendy Skin

Acne, dark spots, and hyperpigmentation are fairly common skin issues. And no, it's not just the odd freckle or having some dark skin. Acne, including adult acne, can be severe, socially debilitating, and sometimes an even disfiguring problem. If over-the-counter acne remedy products fail to solve this plight, there are a myriad of products dedicated to control acne, avoid scarring or other skin damage, and to lighten and make scars less noticeable. Lucky you! There are, of course, acne medications that can be recommended by dermatologists which reduce oil production and treat any present bacterial infection. While most prescription acne drugs are slow to show results, the process can be catalysed with a good skincare routine and the right ingredients.

Hyperpigmentation of skin is the occurrence of spots and/or patches that are far darker than the surrounding areas, darker than the person’s normal skin tone. This can include things like age spots, dark patches after wounds healed bug bites, melasma, and so on. Hyperpigmentation is the result of certain patches of the skin producing more of the skin pigment melanin. It is quite a common kind of affliction, affecting people with all skin types across the spectrum.

Of course, most forms of hyperpigmentation tend to be more likely to affect the bits of your skin that get more sun exposure, thus are more likely to occur on your face, arms, and legs. On the contrary, If the spots and patches are a result of an injury or skin inflammation including healing wounds, burns, dark acne spots, or lupus, they could be anywhere on your body. Although fairly harmless, it can be unsightly and disturbing. The good news is that there are a lot of different hyperpigmentation treatment methods and remedies available today that are accessible and work on most skin types. 

In addition to this, there are some things to keep in mind during and after a treatment regimen for acne, dark spots, or hyperpigmentation. As much as we are compelled by the sun’s calling, avoid sun exposure! Exposure to UV rays of the sun not only causes hyperpigmentation but also tans the already darker parts of your skin regularly, preventing the natural fading of acne scars and dark spots. Always make sure to use sunscreen and check for one with an SPF of at least 30 or higher. This will protect skin from darkening and allow the scars to fade naturally in some cases, and prevent it from occurring in others. 

Make sure your skincare products are keeping the skin moist. This boosts skin turnover. Ingredients like glycerin and hyaluronic acid add to the effectiveness of the active brighteners along with good moisturisers help to replenish the lipid (fat) layer, protecting it further from damaging UV rays. Whatever hyperpigmentation and acne treatment you choose, remember that just treating damage is not enough, It is equally essential to protect your healed skin from further damage and hyperpigmentation. Choose gentler skin-care products with a lighter feel rather than thick oily ones. The best products for this purpose might be ones that combine African superfoods with other ingredients to use on your skin. Specifically, Baobab, Moringa, Hibiscus oil, and Shea butter might have the most positive effects. Products with these additives tackle acne scars, as well as helping to soothe and heal acne, lighten dark spots, and heal hyperpigmentation. And guess who ethically sources and provides these products containing these ingredients?! You guessed it! Yendy. Pre order our Serum now!
