As many enter their forties, they begin to notice uneven pigmentation also called age spots. They can vary in shades of color and sizes such as freckles or even larger patches. And more times than not, it’s a skin imperfection people want gone.
What causes this hyper-pigmentation is often sun overexposure.
Skin Care Heaven, a leading e-commerce skin care store, spa and research center based in Encinitas, has chosen its best selling pigmentation correction products. While handpicking their top winners, they took mature, premature aging, normal, dry, and sensitive skin care types into consideration.
In their best pick list is Obagi Nu Derm Clear. A hydroquinone-based product, it does an excellent job diminishing pigmentation issues.
“Obagi Nu Derm Clear is one of the best products to clear up age spots and remains one of the best skin bleaching creams around,” said Skin Care Heaven’s spokesperson. “This product is also one of our staff favorites.”
Obagi Nu Derm Clear is part of a skin care system but can be purchased separately.
There are some skin types which may not be able to tolerate hydroquinone. So, Skin Care Heaven took that into consideration when picking their top three.
Another product offering great results is the DermaEarth EnLighten Cell Brightening Serum. This product is hydroquinone-free, arbutin-free, kojic-free and paraben-free. “This DermaEarth line uses multiple peptides and other natural pigmentation correction ingredients to reduce sun spots, age spots and other uneven skin tone issues,” said the spokesperson. She continued, “This is truly a great natural, but scientifically driven treatment for uneven skin tone.”
One more hydroquinone-free product on the list for those sensitive to hydroquinone is Dermaquest Skin Therapy Skin Lightening Serum.
“Users of this Dermaquest line notice how their skin lightens and brightens which makes it a win-win product,” said the spokesperson, adding how it gently exfoliates. The kojic acid, she explained, minimizes pigmentation issues and also helps ward off future melanin damage.”
With any pigmentation correction products, sunscreen must always be worn and reapplied when outdoors.
Ongoing use of these types of systems will unleash healthy and more flawless looking skin.
