Skincare is universal and our skin types differ from person to person. Each of us have different skin concerns and requirements. Darker skin tones may struggle with problems, like hyperpigmentation, that a lighter skinned person will not experience. Therefore, your skincare should be suited to your specific concerns.

WHAT IS HYPERPIGMENTATION:

Hyperpigmentation is essentially the fancy medical term used to describe darker, uneven patches of skin. Causes of hyperpigmentation can range from acne scars, skin inflammation, sun exposure, melasma and even reactions to various medications. Hyperpigmentation is a common skin issue which many people have so fear not, you are not alone in this! 💪🏻

Many of us experience acne scarring, dark spots and overall dullness at some points in our skincare journey. However the good new is that Korean beauty products can tackle these concerns with their powerful ingredients which can effectively transform your skin with consistent use. When looking for product to treat pigmentation, look for ingredients such as niacinimide, Vitamin C, Vitamin E and snail mucin. These ingredients are amazing when treating hyperpigmentation as they all contain moisturising, brightening properties which is just what hyper-pigmented skin needs.

4. Mizon Real Vitamin Cleansing Balm:

Packed with rich vitamin and naturally derived Olive and Sea Buckthorn oil aid in gently dissolving pore waste as well as other impurities. This product is phenomenal as it contains 80% skin-hydrating essence which in turn leaves skin feeling more healthy and balanced than ever before.  We recommend scooping up a small amount and applying it onto the dry face. Then massage in circular motions to break down the balm and dissolve whatever build-up may be on the skin. Add a splash of lukewarm water to emulsify it into a silky texture. Lastly rinse thoroughly and pat dry. Follow with the rest of your skincare routine.
