How to Treat
Use A Chemical Exfoliant
This will lift the pigmented cells from the skin and increase cell renewal.
Apply Anti-Inflammatory Agents During Breakouts
Post-inflammatory pigmentation is best treated before it can even leave a mark. To be proactive, apply a spot treatment that targets both the inflammation and the breakout.
Product Recommendation:Grown Alchemist Blemish Treatment Gel
Add Vitamin C Under SPF
Vitamin C can help prevent free radical damage, of which the sun is the #1 contributor. Add this antioxidant right before your SPF to give your sun protection a boost while brightening the skin.
SPF. Every. Single. Day.
Sun exposure breaks down collagen and elastin, which can cause hyperpigmentation. Make sure to wear sunscreen every day—even when it’s cloudy.

• FROM THE TREATMENT ROOM •
Exfoliation can be a great way to remove dead skin cells to reduce the appearance of hyperpigmentation. However, those with darker skin should be especially selective. Look for products with lower concentrations of active ingredients, opting for products that use vitamin C, kojic acid, mandelic acid, lactic acid, or niacinamide as brightening agents.
