How many of you have sun spots or hyperpigmentation issues or just want to have that gorgeous glowing skin? I know that I do for sure! I have olive skin tone which is known to produce excess melanin pigment when I go out in the sun. It’s very frustrating when so many products in the market claim to treat hyperpigmentation and promise you the complexion you always dreamed of having. Not only that, we all want to be able to go out in the sun without having to worry about covering up your skin with foundation. I have tried so many products to fade my sun spots and after lots of trial and error, I have had positive results with Obaji Nu-Derm Clear Fx and Glytone Enhance Brightening Complex. After lots and lots of research, I’m excited to share with you 4 of the best treatments and/or serums to treat hyperpigmentation issues. I will include all shopping links below for your convenience.
The first pick is Obagi’s Nu-Derm Clear Fx because it provides a hydroquinone-free treatment for those looking for a bleach-free lightening approach. This lotion contains vitamins, antioxidants and natural extracts and helps minimize the appearance of dark spots such as melasma, sun spots, or acne-scars. The result is a more even-skin tone. Obaji Products are safe for all skin types.
Glytone Enhance Brightening Complex is what I have been currently using for the past three months. I do see a difference in the overall appearance of my skin and fading of sun spots. It contains two potent acids such as Azelaic Acid and Glycolic acids which are very crucial to help slow down melanin production. This cream also provides an oil-free hydration to my skin. It is also non-comedogenic and hypo-allergenic which makes this a great product for those with sensitive skin.
OSEA Brightening Serum is a great alternative if you’re looking for an organic approach at treating hyperpigmentation. It is formulated with rich botanicals like algae extract, jojoba oils, and Vitamin C to help even out the skin tone and fight against free-radical damage. This product is suitable for all skin-types, especially dry and mature.
100% Pure—Vitamin C serum also is also a great vegan product that helps to improve skin clarity. Vitamin C is an essential ingredient in many skincare products because it is rich in antioxidants and helps speed up cell turnover rate to reveal a smoother and brighter complexion. This product is great for all skin-types as it contains aloe vera gel.
