Pigmentation has two types, hypopigmentation and hyperpigmentation. Pigmentation is the condition when you have uneven dark or light patches on the skin. Besides, it can be a process of excessive coloration or darkening. The main reason is the uncontrolled secretion of melanin by endocrine glands. But the condition is also aggravated by sun exposure, wrong cosmetic use, or oral medications.

Most of the people worry about the skin discolouration. We can consult these ways below to avoid as much as possible.

Avoid contact directly with the sun

According to dermatologists, the pigmentation is a common condition and many young people looking for a quick solution. The best ways to solve this problem is to fastidiously apply a sunscreen. Sunscreen is medicated and has proven positive results. The minimum SPF that you should is 30+, this must be blocked both UVA and UVB light. Before going outdoor, you should apply sun cream at least 20 minutes.

The topical creams should contain substances such as hydroxy quinone, tretinoin, topical steroids, alpha hydroxy acid, azelaic acid or kojic acid, etc. That should be used at night time together with sunblock during the day. If you use antioxidants usually, it also helps you reduce pigmentation.

Replenish your skin

When you have indications of imbalance and premature aging, you must improve your skin as soon as possible. Dull, sallow, pale, or pigmented skin are the signals of aging. You can follow these steps below to keep the skin looking young:

  • Your beauty products and treatments must provide exfoliation to remove dead skin cells.
  • The products must contain epidermal to stimulate new cell growth.
  • Choose the products that include antioxidant properties for cellular rejuvenation and repair.
  • Improve capillary blood flow.
  • Penetrate moisture and nutrients to replenish all seven layers of skin tissue.

The daily skin care routine

In addition to protecting your skin from ultraviolet light, the key to blurring deep-set sunscreens is maintaining skin care habits with the right whitening product. You can refer to the following suggestions:

  • Avoid scratching, scratching or squeezing acne or blemishes. You also should not touch your face several times
  • Use a mild cleanser, especially before going to bed. You should not waste a lot of money on facial cleansers that are advertised for reducing darkness because the short wash time is not enough for whiteners to penetrate the skin. Because friction can cause dark spots on the skin, after washing your face, use a soft towel to absorb water on your face but avoid rubbing your face too hard
  • Use moisturizer to soothe irritation on the skin. After applying moisturizer to the skin, you should massage the skin gently

If your skin is dry, sensitive or aging, it is best to exfoliate 1-2 times per week. If your skin is a mixture of natural oils (pouring a lot of lubricant) then you should be exfoliating 2 to 3 times a week.

To prevent the pigment is not complicate. Hopefully, you had enough knowledge to help yourself avoid the pigment.
