Combating Hyperpigmentation

If you pay meticulous attention to your skin, it’s likely you’ll have noticed small areas of discoloration and darkening. Yes, freckles are cute, but we’re not talking freckles, these are larger uneven dark patches that seem to persist on your face, neck, shoulders, and hands.

What causes this condition?
Everyday elements—including UV exposure, prescription drugs, and some professional treatments—can trigger the production of melanin in the skin’s lowest epidermal layers. This excess melanin rises to the surface of the skin, causing visible skin discoloration. Discoloration can manifest in a range of ways, including post-acne marks, and stubborn brown patches on the cheekbones, forehead, and upper lip. 

What is the solution?
Discoloration Defense by SkinCeuticals® is a layer-able, daily-use dark spot corrector clinically proven to reduce the appearance of key types of skin discoloration, including hard-to-treat forms such as stubborn brown patches and post-acne marks. Formulated with 3% tranexamic acid, 1% kojic acid, 5% niacinamide, and 5% HEPES, this latest-generation formula improves the appearance of skin discoloration, brightens skin, and evens skin tone in as early as two weeks.
