Shop Targets Pigmentation & Uneven Tone

There are many causes of pigmentation: environmental damage, blemishes, pregnancy or any number of other skin processes. A common pigmentation concern is post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH) which is a common skin response after any inflammatory process in the skin, but which is often associated with blemishes. This response triggers the skin cells that cause the skin to produce more pigment. This increased pigment naturally fades over time, however, the process can be aided and accelerated with the use of targeted treatments.


Direct acids and hyperpigmentation


A popular way of treating pigmentation issues is chemical exfoliation. Direct acids, i.e. alpha hydroxy and beta hydroxy acids, work by exfoliating the top layer of your skin so that new skin cells emerge to take the place of the old ones and a more even, radiant complexion results. AHAs such as glycolic and mandelic acid and beta hydroxy acids i.e. salicylic acid are also beneficial for helping to treat acne which itself can lead to hyperpigmentation issues.


Vitamin C and hyperpigmentation


If it seems as though Vitamin C is a cure for all skin concerns that’s because it almost nearly is. Vitamin C is an antioxidant, a quality that is important in fighting dark spots. Vitamin C also has the ability to fade spots without lightening the surrounding normal skin as well as having both anti-aging and anti-inflammatory properties. Vitamin C for the win! The Ordinary has no shortage of Vitamin C products for you to choose from and you can find them all here at Adore Beauty.


Vitamin A and hyperpigmentation


Vitamin A is probably the most important vitamin for tackling the signs of aging. In skincare products, Vitamin A, present as retinoids or retinol, corrects uneven skin tone by speeding cell turnover. All the products you could ever need for a clear, radiant complexion are available from The Ordinary and sold at Adore Beauty. Skincare can be complicated, so we strive to make it easy. Take a look at our selection of products and start the journey to an even complexion.
