Hyperpigmentation is a common skin condition that can appear anywhere on the skin, but is most common on the neck, face and hands. Characterised by the darkening of certain areas of skin, resulting in patches which differ from your normal skin pigmentation, there are various causes of hyperpigmentation. The first step in knowing how to get rid of hyperpigmentation is to know the cause of your skin pigmentation changes. Hormonal changes such as a surge in oestrogen or progesterone can be a contributing factor, as can pregnancy or the contraceptive pill. Overexposure to the sun can lead to sun spots which are commonly found on the arms and face. It's important to pay extra attention to sun spots and consult a dermatologist if you notice any non-uniformity. A surprising third cause of hyperpigmentation is wearing a bra that's too tight. This can cause the skin to change colour and lead to soreness and sensitivity.
The good news is that there are various ways to treat hyperpigmentation, both internally and externally. Start your hyperpigmentation treatment from the inside and choose food and drinks that are rich in antioxidants. Pomegranates, for example, can help improve cell turnover to heal damaged skin and promote regeneration, helping to return your skin pigmentation to normal. An easy way to introduce more skin-loving nutrients into your diet is to take a daily supplement, and you'll find a wide selection here at Nourished Life.
Externally, there's no need to resort to hyperpigmentation treatments such as mainstream harsh chemicals that may harm your skin further. Look out for natural ingredients such as citrus fruit acids, fermented botanicals and sake. For instance, facial oils containing rosehip oil are wonderfully good for your skin.
