Are you concerned with dark spots or discoloration of the skin? Darkening or discoloration of the skin is called hyperpigmentation, a skin condition usually caused by higher than normal levels of melanin. The three main types of hyperpigmentation are post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, melasma, and sun damage. As we get older, age spots and sun spots tend to be more visible on hands, face, and décolleté. There are many causes of hyperpigmentation, including sun damage, inflammation, or other skin injuries, like those related to acne vulgaris. Because hyperpigmentation is related to melanin production, people with darker skin tones are more prone to hyperpigmentation, especially in conjunction with excess sun exposure. An excess production of melanin can cause many forms of hyperpigmentation. Some of the causes we can control, others not so much. The good news is, if treated properly with the correct topical anti-aging skin care products, you can minimize and often eliminate those pesky dark spots for a more even-toned complexion.
The proper skincare regimen is key to maintaining healthy looking skin and minimizing hyperpigmentation. The Biologique Recherche PIGM Skincare Collection was developed and specifically formulated to address age spots and hyper-pigmentation. As with all Biologique skin care products, you can trust that the PIGM Skincare Collection has been crafted with the best ingredients to provide what your skin craves.
The Lotion P50 PIGM 400 is an all in one toner and exfoliator that will help balance skin's pH while regulating melanin synthesis and enhancing the renewal of the epidermis. This is a complete solution to help lighten dark spots while working to brighten and even out skin tone for a more radiant complexion. Highly active ingredients like palmaria palmata extract, meadowsweet extract, fruit flavonoids, and wasabi extract all work together to minimize hyperpigmentation.
The sooner you treat hyperpigmentation, the faster it will fade, so the regular use of skin-brightening and lightening products can make a huge difference. The Biologique Recherche PIGM 400 Skincare collection delivers excellent results. Each of the products in Biologique's skin care line is cold formulated with a high level of active botanical ingredients. Alpha hydroxy acids, Australian finger lime extract, palmaria palmata extract, meadowsweet extract, fruit flavonoids, wasabi extract, vitamin B3, and AHA all help to minimize melanin production and reverse sun damage by encouraging cell turnover.
After cleansing with Biologique Recherche Lait VIP 02 and your Lotion P50 toner, application the Biologique Recherche Masque PIGM 400 will work to unify and illuminate the complexion while preventing the look of dark spots. This new innovative skincare technology from the Biologique skin care team is an extremely thin, softer than silk and cooler than linen peel-off face mask. The almost transparent mask's smooth fiber perfectly adapts to the face’s shape and feels soft and supple against the skin. The anti-melanogenesis mask contains high concentrations of red algae extract, pea extract, caviar lime extract, and vitamin C to boost radiance and brighten the complexion. It’s super absorbent technology is able to trap the active botanical ingredients for optimal concentration and absorption into the skin.
If your skin is prone to hyperpigmentation you can take steps to minimize future damage. First of all, you should protect yourself against things that can trigger hyperpigmentation. Always use acne medications to fight off breakouts and don't forget the bug spray to prevent bites; in addition, be sure to treat acne and bug bites as soon as possible. Finally, the importance of sun protection can't be stressed enough. Exposure to UV rays sends your pigment levels into overdrive, turning dark spots darker. You must wear sunblock daily on exposed areas. Sunblock is not just for the beach.; sunscreen is a must especially in harsh climates and city environments if you want to minimize and prevent hyperpigmentation.
The Biologique Recherche Serum PIGM 400 will brighten your complexion and correct dark pigmented spots. This facial serum's unique formula is boosted with lightening agents that provide a super effective response to inhibit melanin synthesis. In addition, its anti-free radical agents protect skin and help to slow down the skin’s aging process.
Following your facial serum application, it is important to protect and replenish the skin's moisture. The Biologique Recherche Crème PIGM 400 is an excellent face cream that will work to lighten and protect the skin while preventing the development of pigment spots. Regular use along with the highly active botanical ingredients will reduce pigment imperfections and stop the appearance of new dark spots.
Your hands are very prone to dark spots and can often show the signs of aging. The Biologique Recherche Emulsion Mains PIGM 400 hand cream repairs damaged, pigmented, and dehydrated hands. This emulsion is rich in active botanical ingredients meant to reduce the appearance of pigmentation marks while providing a genuine protective barrier against the sun and other environmental factors.
