If you are anything like me and prefer to spend hours in the sun, I am sure you too would have faced the problem of hyperpigmentation. While it’s possible to get rid of it, you need to know exactly how it works in order to be able to choose the best hyperpigmentation treatment.
Why it happens
Hyperpigmentation of the skin is mostly caused by the harmful UV radiations coming from the sun. These rays penetrate deep into your skin and enhance the generation of Melanin, which is the protein responsible for providing color to the skin.
Now, when this pigment is produced in excessive amounts, it starts forming deposits on the upper layer of the skin, giving it a dark and patchy appearance. It not only makes your skin look unclean but also makes you look way older than your years.
There are a lot of treatments available out there for this skin problem – chemical peeling, freezing, electric needles, acids etc. Fact is – these treatments are extremely invasive in nature and work by the superficial destruction of the top layer of your skin. Consequently, they frequently leave white spots and occasional scars on your precious skin.
Laser hyperpigmentation treatment is also one of the invasive techniques but is much more precise and hence causes lesser damage to the skin. It is less painful and the healing time required for the skin is also a little less in this technique. But again, the risk of side effects like scarring is always there.
Chemical based creams and serums may be cheaper than these techniques but the problem of side effects still persists. These creams usually contain Hydroquinone, mercury or chemicals of similar nature for bleaching the skin. These chemicals have been found to be extremely effective for skin lightening, be aware that numerous cases have been reported of the dangerous side effects that these chemicals bring along. Irritation, burning sensation, redness, itching are just a few common ones to name; mercury poisoning and cancer are also a possible risk.
A better alternative
The best and the most effective hyperpigmentation treatment is offered by all natural skin care creams containing potent ingredients like Extrapone Nutgrass Root and Phytessence Wakame. Ingredients like these have been clinically tested and proven to be most effective in treating pigmented skin.
The best part? Since they are completely natural, there is no question of their causing side effects of any kind. These ingredients are really soft and gentle on the skin and do not cause damage of any kind.
How do they work? Extrapone works by inhibiting the production of melanin inside your skin. It thus not only prevents hyperpigmentation but also clears off the existing melanin depositions and makes the skin clean, clear and uniformly colored. Wakame works by forming an invisible layer on top of the skin and preventing solar rays from causing any harm to the skin.
Additionally, these natural ingredients nourish and nurture the skin from the inside out, thereby making it healthy from inside and beautiful from outside. Using a natural cream containing a potent combination of such wonderful ingredients is the most effective and healthy hyperpigmentation treatment available out there.
