Exfoliation for pigmentation: Experts Recommended Tips
Exfoliation helps shed excess dead skin and darkened skin cells which allows your skin with the necessary time to breathe. In a way, exfoliation can help reduce various skin problems.
5 ways exfoliation helps with hyperpigmentation & a myriad of other skin issues
- Breaks apart pigmented cells and allows them to fade: Using the right exfoliator and using it gently can improve skin turnover, eventually causing dark spots to fade.
Removes impurities and dead skin cells: Exfoliation helps in clearing out the dead cells and debris from the skin and helps in reducing the incidence of acne and papules.
Reduces blemishes, pimples, whiteheads, and blackheads: Since the superficial layers of the skin are removed during exfoliation, there are less chances for developing blemishes and whiteheads and blackheads.
Reduces pore size and unclogs pores: Exfoliation helps to clear out the impurities that get accumulated in the pores.
Reduces the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines: The dead skin layer is removed leaving behind a deeper healthier skin which will reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines on the face.
Let’s learn to exfoliate & what to pick
While there are multiple exfoliators- physical and chemical, available in the skincare world, it is prudent to pick one that is gentle on your skin (because going overboard can be very easy) but also very effective.
However, there are not many solo ingredients that can help you get rid of hyperpigmentation holistically. Science-backed technology that includes a combination of skincare actives that has been clinically proven to lighten hyperpigmentation and dark spots is what you need.
The best combination to consider is the VB3+HR+RPC (Niacinamide, Hexyl Resorcinol, and Retinyl Propionate) technology. Clinically proven to help reduce hyperpigmentation in 4 weeks, the combination presents a holistic approach that addresses all three processes involved in hyperpigmentation- melanin production, transfer and delivery. This is often not achieved in cases of other ingredients such as kojic acid, and vitamin C.
Clinical studies on the powerful combo of Hexyl Resorcinol, Niacinamide and Retinyl Propionate have shown promising results- brighter and a reduction in hyperpigmentation in as less as 4 weeks and even skin tone in 8 weeks. Using clinically proven solutions that synergize with your concerns instead of 3 to 4 mediocre actives allows you to follow a proper day- or night-time skincare regimen, one that actually delivers results.
Overusing the wrong ingredients can in fact exacerbate hyperpigmentation and that can be particularly frustrating. But, with the solutions we bring- clinically driven skincare formulations with upright ingredients, you can maximise your desired results in a shorter duration.
