Hyperpigmentation of the skin is a common concern that affects men less frequently than women, but can be equally distressing. It occurs with age and is more common in darker skins, which are also most difficult to treat. The genetic form of hyperpigmentation is also known as Melasma. Post-inflammatory pigmentation occurs secondary to skin conditions such as acne, eczema or skin trauma. Sun exposure worsens all forms of pigmentation. There are numerous ingredients in cosmeceutical products that work synergistically to lighten and control pigmentation. Here are some of Skinsmart’s recommended products for pigmentation.
