WHAT SKINSTITUT PRODUCTS SHOULD I LOOK OUT FOR IF I HAVE PIGMENTATION?

 

The most effective home-care products for pigment are those that help to ‘interrupt’ the pigment pathway at each stage of pigment production.

The goal of a brightening home care regime designed to target pigment would be to address each one of these areas:
– Block the UV rays that ignite the pigment production pathway to kick into gear, stimulating the production of melanin. Use Skinstitut Age Defence SPF 50+ daily.

– Slow down melanin production. Apply Skinstitut Even Blend Serum twice daily.

– Slow down melanin deposits into localised areas of the skin. (a product that is rich in Vitamin B3 will do this: Skinstitut Even Blend Serum, Skinstitut Multi-Active Mist or Skinstitut Age Defence SPF 50+)

– Encourage cell turnover to lift up and out the pigmented cells within the skin (incorporate a daily cleanser with alpha-hydroxy acids, like Skinstitut L-Lactic Cleanser or Skinstitut Glycolic Cleanser 12%)

– Antioxidants, such as Skinstitut Vitamin C 100%, is highly beneficial as it will help to brighten the complexion and also slow down melanin production in the skin.

ARE THERE ANY INGREDIENTS/TREATMENTS I SHOULD AVOID IF I HAVE PIGMENTATION?


Products to avoid:

Harsh alcohol-based astringents
Artificial fragrance (sprayed directly onto sun exposed areas can cause photosensitivity)

Treatments to avoid:

This will depend on the individual’s skin colour. More olive and darker skin tones can find their skin hyper pigments quite easily. For those with a darker skin tone, they may be best to avoid certain in-clinic treatments, such as some intense chemical peels.

HOW LONG BEFORE SKINSTITUT RESULTS ARE VISIBLE?

 

The type of pigment in the skin will dictate how soon results will be seen. Sun-induced pigment will usually respond better than internally produced, hormonally triggered pigment. Making certain lifestyle modifications may also help results to be seen faster.

Generally allow a couple of months for ideal results to be seen. Some people notice minor changes quite quickly, but again, this comes down to the type of pigment being treated and its cause.
