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.

Let me tell you, this product was damn hard to get my hands on. If you’re already an ICONIC London fan, you’re probably like ‘girl, this launched months ago’ – I know. But I had to make sure when I published this article that it didn’t sell out too quickly. So here we are, we’re loaded up on […]

If you’ve never actually seen someone pull off a blue mascara, I have no doubt that you probably think it’s a terrible idea. So did I, until I saw makeup artist Shev Kelly wearing the sh*t out of it one day. I’d never had any desire to experiment with coloured mascara before, but I was […]

As someone with fine, often limp-looking hair, I’d always avoided leave-in styling products at all costs (unless it said ‘volume’ on the packaging). It wasn’t until maybe 12 months ago that I tried a multi-purpose leave-in treatment after I’d washed my hair and realised what a huge difference it made to my hair once I […]
