Your 3 Step Guide for Treating Hyperpigmentation

I get asked so so much about how to treat hyperpigmentation and I have to be honest and say it can be a long process. The main thing that we need to focus on is gentle exfoliation and protection. However, there are so many causes and types of pigmentation it's not always that simple.

The main causes of hyperpigmentation are UV light, trauma to the skin (such as waxing, cuts, burns, acne, piercing etc), medication, stress and hormones.

There are also different types of hyperpigmentation as well including melasma, chloasma, freckles, post inflammatory pigmentation and moles (to name a few).
