For most people, long term scarring is what makes getting acne a hundred times worse. You can have a dark spot stay put on your skin for anywhere between a couple of weeks to years on end. What’s more- the treatments for lightening these ‘permanent’ scars are both invasive and expensive- be it fancy chemical peels or numerous laser sessions. Instead of spending big and risking your skin to keep a recurring problem at bay, why not switch up your skincare routine to be more hyperpigmentation-friendly? Here are a few products with ingredients that both combat and prevent pigmentation.
Step 1: Tea tree face wash
Made with acne-combating tea tree oil and all natural anti-inflammatory plant extracts, our gentle tea tree foaming face wash cleanses blocked pores without drying out the skin. This formula is made to fight hyperpigmentation-causing bacteria so it can help you fade pesky spots and blemishes with regular use. The facewash is non-invasive and gentle, friendly for most skin types, and recommended to be used at least once per day. With basil extract that calms inflammation, neem extract that cleans out dirt from pores and balances sebum, and tea tree oil that controls pigmentation by killing acne causing bacteria, you can work your way upto pigmentation free skin.
Step 2: Anti-blemish face mask
Formulated with all-natural plant extracts that combat pigmentation and uneven skin tone, our Bye Bye pigmentation set is made to treat acne-prone skin. It comes with an anti-blemish face mask and a skin lightening plant oil that gently heals and nourishes the skin. With ingredients like kesar (antioxidant/brightening), haldi (exfoliating), ashwagandha (anti-inflammatory/ soothing), and chandan (antiseptic), you get an all-in-one product that can fade blemishes, brighten up the skin and leave it looking radiant and supple.
To use the mask, simply scoop up a desired amount, apply it to areas you wish to brighten and treat, and wash after fifteen minutes. You can apply the anti-blemish face mask all over your face, or as a spot treatment to lighten darker areas, and it can also be used safely on the body. Once you wash off the mask, use the skin lightening face oil as a moisturiser to seal in the goodness. Use both the mask and oil in an everyday skincare routine for best results.
Step 3: Vitamin C SPF cream
Perhaps the most important part of this routine is your moisturiser and SPF. Protecting your skin from the sun not only prevents premature ageing, but it also prevents pigmentation from getting triggered. A surefire way to fade acne is to start wearing SPF every day, especially outdoors. For those preferring a short and sweet skincare routine, opting for a moisturiser with SPF is a great way to reduce steps while staying budget-friendly. Our Vitamin C brightening cream with SPF 50 is a great way to brighten the skin, fade pre-existing blemishes, and protect the skin from UV rays. With nutrient-rich plant oils like avocado oil, almond oil, Vitamin C oil, and broad-spectrum UVA/UVB sun protection, you get the best of both worlds in one product.
