Hyperpigmentation is a common skin condition in which certain patches of your skin become darker than the rest. While it’s a harmless condition, it does shake your self-confidence a little, making you look for ways to get rid of it.
Common causes of hyperpigmentation are frequent exposure to the sun for longer periods of time and inflammation of the skin in conditions like acne. The darker spots appear because of excess melanin production In the skin and can normally affect any skin type and tone.
The best treatment available for hyperpigmentation is in the form of Vitamin C. The importance of vitamins for skin health can not be debated. Vitamin C is especially important for protection againt photo damage, hyperpigmentation and melasma (freckle like spots on the skin).
Vitamin C is a powerful anti-oxidant with L-ascorbic acid which plays a role in blocking the action of the enzyme Tyrosinase, essential for the production of melanin. With consistent and prolonged use, Vitamin C will help restore the darkened area of your skin to a normal skin tone.
It does not fade away your normal skin colour to make you look dull but only acts on photo-damaged skin with excess melanin.
However, the L-ascorbic acid in Vitamin C is a highly unstable ingredient that oxidizes rapidly upon exposure to sun and moisture. As a result, it is unable to penetrate deep into the skin to work its wonder. Beauty experts for White Rock Hydrafacial in South Surrey recommend its use in powdered form. In powdered form, vitamin c is able to maintain its composition for a longer time to yield benefits.
Free radicals in the skin produced by sun exposure and pollution are also responsible for breaking down collagen, resulting in wrinkles, dark spots, fine lines and saggy skin. Similarly, as you age, the melanocytes (melanin-producing cells) can concentrate In particular areas, giving an appearance of dark spots. Vitamin C counters this effect by hindering the excess production of melanin, preventing the deterioration of collagen and neutralizing free radicals.
However, it is advisable to continue the use of vitamin c in your skincare routine which takes about 2-3 months to bring about a prominent change. White Rock Spa is committed to providing updated and best practices in skin care to help you achieve the flawless skin that you desire.
Side effects with Vitamin C are rare but for some people with dry and sensitive skin, vitamin C serums can cause a bit of irritation and dryness. However, its anti-ageing, anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties for the benefits of the skin are worth exploring.
