Treating skin pigmentation with Hush & Hush Skincapsule BRIGHTEN+

When it comes to skin pigmentation issues, they can affect all ages and all skin tones too, and they can look different on various skin tones. Our skin’s colour comes from a pigment called melanin, and when its production becomes irregular, it can lead to various pigmentation conditions like hyperpigmentation, sun spots and melasma.

What causes skin pigmentation irregularities?

Several factors can lead to irregularities in skin pigmentation, causing either hyperpigmentation (dark patches) or hypopigmentation (light patches) on the skin. These factors can affect the skin in many ways and can look different on everyone. Some common causes of skin pigmentation include:

  1. Sun Exposure: Prolonged exposure to the sun’s UV rays can increase melanin production, leading to dark spots or freckles. Wearing sunscreen daily with a high SPF, wearing protective clothing like hats and sunglasses and avoiding sun exposure at peak times during the summer can all help to minimise excess melanin production during the summer.
  2. Hormonal Changes: Hormonal fluctuations during pregnancy, menopause, or while taking certain medications can trigger melanin production and result in skin discolouration, known as melasma. These dark patches are typically found on the face, and while sunscreen can help manage it, often more intervention is needed.
  3. Post-Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation: Those who suffer from acne can see areas of pigmentation caused by skin inflammation in the affected areas. Hyperpigmentation can also be caused by an injury to the skin, leading to darker patches on the skin after the initial injury has healed.
  4. Age: As we age, our skin’s ability to regulate melanin production decreases, leading to age spots or “liver spots.” These can appear as flat, darker areas of pigmentation on the skin.

How to treat skin pigmentation

While some skin pigmentation can lighten up on its own over time, many people who are self-conscious of their skin pigmentation issues treat them topically with skincare products. These usually contain ingredients like Vitamin C, glycolic acid and salicylic acid. Treatments like chemical peels, microdermabrasion and laser treatments can all help treat pigmentation.
