The understanding of skin brightening and managing of hyperpigmentation on various ethnicities is challenging. A quick gauge analysis of particularly hyperpigmentation prone skin types are clients with a darker eye colour including dark green to brown and dark brown shades.
There are many factors contributing to this darkened skin appearance which include, but are not limited to, sun exposure, hormonal changes, use of harsh chemicals, fragrances, some essential oils, friction from clothing or injury to the skin and even illness and disease. Science is proven to show that 70%-90% of women experience a disruption in the melanogenesis cascade, especially noticed during pregnancy and hormonal fluctuations.
DermaFix Cosmeceutical Skin Care offers a variety of product options all suited to a hyperpigmented skin concern as follows;
A firm favourite, MelanoDerm is a hydroquinone-free corrective facial moisturiser that effectively works to reduce the appearance of hyperpigmentation and promotes a brighter, more even skin tone whilst maintaining skin integrity. For body hyperpigmentation concerns, UltraBright, a new addition to the DermaFix range, is a fast-acting skin brightener recommended for overall skin lightening including dark skin found on hands, elbows, underarms and knees. With regular use of DermaFix UltraBright, you will notice visible lightening of hyperpigmented areas of the skin showing positive results in a short period of time.
Within DermaFix Cosmeceutical Skin Care’s MD Prescriptives range, MD Prescriptives Mandelic Cleanser and Mandelic Toner with the inclusion of MD Prescriptives SkinLite for daily use in conjunction with MD Prescriptives SPF 50 for High UVA/UVB protection. MD Prescriptives Vitamin A Propionate may be included at night offering the benefits of a retinoid without the negative side effects typically seen with retinol-based products. The key ingredient, Vitamin A Propionate, is a gentler option and is considered to be a beneficial advanced ingredient in lifting the envelope of hyperpigmentation.
The inclusion of Vitamin C within your skin care routine for antioxidant boosting benefits is essential in the prevention of hyperpigmentation. Ferulic + C + E contains 15 % L-ascorbic acid, 1% Alpha Tocopherol, 0.5% Ferulic acid offering up to 72 hours of antioxidant protection against harmful free-radical attack. Ideal for daily use, this high dose Vitamin C formulation, stabilised with the inclusion of Ferulic Acid, offers skin brightening benefits whilst promoting the production of Collagen and Elastin in the fight against ageing.
Vitamin C Serum, with L-ascorbic acid, helps to reduce the visible signs of photo-ageing by helping to fight destructive free radicals. The inclusion of soothing yarrow extract allows for a reduction in skin inflammation and helps to curb post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation across all skin types.
ACC Vitamin C is a 3-in-1 formulation, providing concentrated Vitamin C in the form of Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate. This stabilised formulation targets ageing, hyperpigmentation and acne, and is perfect for use alongside advanced protocols such as Microneedling.
DermaFix Cosmeceutical Skin Care furthermore advises regular enzymatic exfoliation with DermaPolish or DermaPolish + Activated Charcoal for facial use. Alternatively, for body exfoliation, the Ultra XFoliant can be incorporated into Brightening Cleanser and massaged gently to remove darkened redundant skin cells, working to brighten the skin, whilst further promoting improved absorption of actives.
Daily protection against harmful UVA/UVB rays is imperative with DermaShield SPF40/50 High Protection Sunscreen.
