Let’s face it, we all want to achieve that beautiful, glowing skin; however, dark spots can put a damper on our mood and keep us from the skin of our dreams. No matter if it’s a single spot or a wider patch, this condition often makes you dependent on makeup, or it can cause you to hide the blemish with clothing. Still, with the right skincare products, you can feel more confident in your own skin.

By using our medical-grade skincare products, you can reduce hyperpigmentation, which can be caused by excessive sun exposure, hormones, and aging. Let’s discover Dr. Ariel Ostad’s recommendations.

What Is Hyperpigmentation?

Hyperpigmentation is a very common skin condition that can make certain areas of your skin appear darker than others. Those patches of skin have more pigment than normal, which is caused by an excess amount of melanin. 

Hyperpigmentation often occurs when the skin cells are either inflamed or unhealthy. When this happens, they produce too much melanin, causing your skin to become discolored. These spots can be limited to only one area of your body or they can spread to multiple areas.

Unless treated, hyperpigmentation can be a lifelong condition. The best way to get rid of it is to promote cell turnover, which allows new cells to replace old ones. You can undergo various cosmetic procedures for this process, but a good topical treatment can also be helpful.

What Products Can Help Treat Hyperpigmentation?

With regular application, a good hyperpigmentation regimen set can keep your skin free of unwanted pigmentation. Here are some of the products that Dr. Ariel Ostad recommends for hyperpigmentation:

1. CEFG Complex

The CEFG Complex can be one of your best allies when treating hyperpigmentation. With Vitamin C in its formula, this antioxidant has shown skin-lightening properties, making it a great tool for dark patches. With regular application, your skin can be brighter and smoother, with fewer imperfections. Additionally, the formula is gentle, making it a great option to add to your daily routine.

2. Nia-C+ Intensive Repair Cream

If your hyperpigmentation is also accompanied by dryness and high skin sensitivity, then the Nia-C+ cream is a good choice for you. This cream features a hydration complex formula that nourishes your skin. Featuring ceramides and fatty acids, along with Vitamin B3, it supports a smooth skin cell turnover. With regular combination treatments, your skin should be able to repair itself, which will reduce the presence of hyperpigmentation.

3. LUMA Cream

If you are looking for a great moisturizer to combat hyperpigmentation, then the LUMA cream might hold all of your answers. This cream is one-of-a-kind and can address various skin concerns, including pigmentation issues. This cream features skin-brightening ingredients like Retin-A, Arbutin, and AHA antioxidants, and it can promote cell turnover, leaving you with a healthy glow.

4. KOJI Brightening Pads

For outstanding skin-brightening benefits, you can use the KOJI brightening pads. Easy to use and with an extensive formula, this product can help reduce hyperpigmentation and inflammation in your skin. Each pad contains a combination of salicylic acid, kojic acid, green tea, vitamin C, and Arbutin. For the best results, you should use these pads at least every other evening.

5. Sun Shade Clear

Sunblock, especially when used in combination with other products, has shown to be very efficient for treating hyperpigmentation. Aside from that, sunblock acts as a preventive measure for those who are already dealing with this condition. This is why the Sun Shade Clear can be a great asset when battling pigmentation concerns. Offering broad-spectrum IV protection, this product can help treat and protect your skin without clogging your pores.
