Want to get rid of pigmentation, blemishes and dark spots? Look no further...

Pigmentation and uneven skin tone are two skincare issues plenty of people suffer from and they can make you feel really self-conscious. But, fortunately, they don’t need to – we’ve scoured the beauty halls and chosen our favourite skin pigmentation products to help improve their appearance and overall skin tone.

What is skin pigmentation?

Pigmentation is the darkening of an area of skin caused by the increase of melanin. While people with olive and darker skin tones are more likely to be affected, lighter skin tones can still suffer. The main cause of pigmentation is inflammation, including acne, and overexposure to the sun.

We all know that UVA and UVB rays are a key cause of premature ageing and can lead to early onset wrinkles, but they can also cause hyper pigmentation and dark spots. Get into the habit of using a one of the best SPF moisturisers or sunscreen on a daily basis, as this is one of the best ways to keep your skin looking healthy and prevent dark spots and patchy skin-tone developing.

But don’t panic if you are already seeing the results of too much sun exposure and you are struggling with pigmentation already. Luckily there are now some great, effective products in the beauty halls that can help.

Some of the most effective ingredients to fight pigmentation are salicylic acid, chamomile extract and glycolic acid. They help brightening the skin, as well as exfoliating and smoothing its texture. Exfoliating in particular is really important because the skin cycle gets slower with ageing, and cells pile up on the surface of the epidermis. Then, buffing away dead cells aids to speed the renewal process and consequently helps to get rid of the unwanted spots.

With so many options on the market it can be hard to know which will actually get the results you’re after, so we’ve handpicked some of the game-changing products that fight skin pigmentation. Not only will they balance uneven skin tone, they will also nurture, soothe and revitalise your skin overall.
