Hyperpigmentation is a common skin condition with several causes and treatment options. We can help you reduce it the natural way.
What is hyperpigmentation?
Hyperpigmentation is the term used to describe patches of the skin that appear darker.
In mild instances, it can occur in small areas of your skin, but in more extreme cases, it can cover large areas or even affect your whole body.
Hyperpigmentation occurs because of the excess production of melanin, the naturally occurring pigment that gives skin its colour.
The amount of melanin your body produces can be influenced by a wide range of factors, including inflammation or infection, acne, exposure to sunlight, hormonal changes, or an over-reaction to certain drugs or medicines.
How can I reduce hyperpigmentation?
Hyperpigmentation is usually a harmless condition and while you should always seek medical advice if you are concerned, it’s normally nothing to worry about.
It can, however, have an impact on your mental health and cause self-esteem and body confidence issues if you suffer from hyperpigmentation that is visible or affects a large area of your body.
While there are many natural ways to treat hyperpigmentation, there is unfortunately not really a quick fix.
Most products you can buy to treat hyperpigmentation only start to have an effect after around three months of regular use.
Ingredients like hydroquinone, liquorice extract, N-acetylglucosamine and Vitamin B3 all have natural properties which can help restore the skin and reduce the appearance of darker patches of hyperpigmentation over time.
How can Lily & Loaf help?
Your diet and lifestyle can go a long way toward maintaining healthy-looking skin and reducing hyperpigmentation.
Although getting some sunlight is beneficial, too much exposure can increase production of melanin, resulting in hyperpigmentation spots appearing.
Stress can also create hormonal imbalances which cause hyperpigmentation and, if you are a woman, so can pregnancy or menstruation.
Lily & Loaf’s range of natural health and beauty supplements have been specially formulated to give your body all the right nutrition it needs to reduce hyperpigmentation and maintain healthy-looking skin.
When taken regularly, as part of a balanced lifestyle, they can help you feel good on the inside and look great on the outside too.
