I started the year by being asked to do a series of Instagram-based videos on hyperpigmentation skin care. I’d seen the images and videos that are being created to help people with hyperpigmentation and wanted to add my own to help others understand the conditions.
It’s not hyperpigmentation as such, but it’s a type of pigment that is darkly pigmented and therefore very visible. Hyperpigmentation is often used to describe skin that is not tan at all, only darkly pigmented. This condition is often caused by stress and hormonal imbalances. This is a topical treatment that can be used to help with the symptoms of hyperpigmentation.
Hyperpigmentation is also extremely common among people who are taking steroids/hormones for various medical conditions. And its also a major reason why people who are taking these meds are advised to cut out the drugs as soon as possible. Its something that is hard to treat, and it will usually resolve itself on its own, but you should always check with your doctor.
Hyperpigmentation is typically caused by too much of something. If you are taking steroids or other hormones, it is well understood that their effects are not well understood and there is a reasonable chance for side effects, but a lot of people with this skin condition are taking these hormones for medical reasons and its not something that can be easily addressed with a topical treatment. Its also important to remember that steroids or other hormones can have a very serious and even permanent effect on the skin.
Hyperpigmentation is a very serious condition that can be treated with a topical retinoid, but its very rare that a retinoid will help you. In fact, its common cause is just too much sun exposure. So be careful when using sun-cream on your skin and don’t forget to cover up when you are going to work out at the gym.
Here’s a good tip though, try to wear sunscreen all over your body. The reason for this is that the sun can cause our skin to break out in hyperpigmentation. If you are unsure of the cause of the hyperpigmentation, apply an antiperspirant to your skin. Its very important for you to keep a smooth skin with no signs of hyperpigmentation.
The good news is that hyperpigmentation (or any skin condition) is treatable! So I’d suggest that you see your dermatologist for treatment immediately.
Hyperpigmentation is nothing to be afraid of but there have been many cases where it has been treated with Dermalogica’s high-potency acne cleanser or it can even be treated with medical grade anti-aging cream. There are other skin care options that can help you keep your face and body looking as young as possible.
While hyperpigmentation seems like it would never occur to you, it is possible. Many people have the same problem. They have thinning, pale skin due to the loss of skin pigment. It’s a common condition that is often associated with premature aging. But hyperpigmentation is more than just a sign of premature aging (though it can be). It’s a symptom of the loss of skin pigment.
Hyperpigmentation can be due to a number of things. One is a lack of melanin production. You can have low levels of melanin in your skin. There are different types of melanin, so if you have a lower level of melanin, you will have more of a problem with hyperpigmentation. Another possibility would be if you have a genetic defect in your skin.
