How to Reduce Pigmentation

There are many skin care methods for you to try that can help to give you crystal clear skin and prevent any kind of blotches, but it’s important to understand what it is you’re experiencing before you tackle it. In this case, skin pigmentation or hyperpigmentation is an issue for some people, and luckily there are a number of care products you can try to clear it up.

What is skin pigmentation?

Skin pigmentation, also known as hyperpigmentation is a skin condition that makes your skin appear blotchy, and darker in some areas compared to others. This can be minor, and only affect some parts of the body, or in some cases, it can affect you all over. While there’s nothing necessarily wrong with skin pigmentation, some don’t enjoy dealing with it, which is why there are products to reduce pigmentation.

It’s important to consider that it’s a very common condition to deal with, and having it isn’t a sign that your health is in any kind of danger. All that’s happening is that some areas of your skin are producing more melanin than others, causing differences in pigmentation. 

What causes skin pigmentation?

If you’re only just now experiencing it and it’s new to you, there are a number of reasons you might be experiencing it. The most common reasons are sun damage, chloasma, post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, and other medical conditions. A sudden breakout of skin pigmentation might warrant an appointment with your doctor or primary caregiver to make sure there are no underlying health concerns you need to be worried about. Make sure to get a second opinion from a dermatologist if your doctor isn’t able to identify the cause.

Treatment and prevention

In some cases, skin pigmentation can be prevented, but it’s important to keep the causes in mind. If it’s caused by underlying health conditions, that’s not something you can easily avoid. However, reducing your exposure to sunlight can indeed lower your risks of hyperpigmentation. Make sure to wear plenty of sunscreens when you’re out in the sun, and keep yourself covered up.

Other than suncream though, what are your options? Well, there are a number of products for you to try out, and you may find they have varying results.


Moisturizer should be a part of your daily skincare routine if you care for crystal-clear skin, but using the right product is equally important. It’s not enough for daily application, as if the moisturizer you’re using doesn’t have the necessary ingredients - it’s not going to help you with your skin pigmentation. Products like Skin EssentiA - Vita-Antioxidant AVST 1 Moisturiser are made with skin pigmentation in mind, and will do a great deal to reduce your condition. Ingredients like Vitamin C are highly important, and increasing your intake on a daily basis may be helpful to you.


Getting your skin the chemicals and nutrients it needs can be made easy with the right lotion, and products like Focus Care Radiance+ Multi-Bioactive Mela-Prep Lotion could be what your daily skincare routine is missing. You can never be too careful when picking out your skincare products, and you want to make sure they’ve got all of the right components.

Cleansing gels

Yet another core component of a daily skincare routine, cleansing gels can be a great way to keep your skin healthy and clear. Throughout the day, your skin builds up dirt, oils, and even makeup, and just washing it off isn’t always enough. Using products like these can be a great way to ensure other products like moisturisers are more effective. If all of your pores are blocked up, healing chemicals aren’t going to be nearly as effective.

Ideally, you have an effective cleaning gel available every time you wash your face, which can vary depending on your conditions! It’s essential for use every time you need to remove your makeup, or else you’re not going to have clear skin.
