Skin Concern Series: Hyper Pigmentation

We are back with a brand new part of our Skin Concern Series. This time we are talking about and sharing products that help with hyperpigmentation. 

This skin concern can happen in all skin types and has as a most common cause sun exposure, however, eczema, psoriasis and acne can also lead to it. 

Hyperpigmentation can be seen as a condition that leads to skin darkening, however, we can always help our skin look healthier and fade the unevenness with proper care and a good routine. 

Our skin renews itself every 28 days or so, and getting the necessary active ingredients to boost our skin makes a big difference not just for hyperpigmentation but also for many other skin concerns.

To deal with this skin concern, ingredients such as Vitamin A,B and C, Arbutin, chemical exfoliants, rice water and extract, and liquorice extracts will be of great help, so make sure to use those that suit your skin type better. 

Here are a few of our favourite K-Beauty products that helps with hyperpigmentation:

Dear, Klairs – Freshly Juiced Vitamin Drop 

The concentration of Vitamin C in this product and its mix with key moisturizing and soothing ingredients like Centella Asiatica and Hyaluronic acid, makes this serum one of our favourites. 

Make sure to check our Klairs’ Brand Deep Dive to find out more about their products.

Neogen Bio-Peel Gauze Peeling Lemon

I started testing this product and I am already impressed by it. The lemon Bio-Peel Gauze helps refresh the skin by removing the excessive sebum and dead cells and after washing it off, the skin already feels a lot smoother. 

IUNIK – Vitamin Hyaluronic Acid Vitalizing Toner

The berry extract in this toner plays a big part in its efficiency for skin brightening, and on top of this, it also offers deep hydration with its 45% hyaluronic acid. It’s a win-win.

COSRX – Ultimate Nourishing Rice Overnight Spa Mask

This product contains 65% rice extract, making it amazing for not just hyperpigmentation but also moisturizing. The Ultimate Nourishing Rice Overnight Spa Mask does wonders on the skin helping it become brighter, healthier and also promoting the production of collagen. 

Jumiso – Yes I Am Toner AHA 5%

Jumiso’s Yes I Am Toner AHA 5% contains exfoliating ingredients that will promote the regeneration of skin cells, helping the skin to look brighter and better. 

Beauty of Joseon – Glow Serum: Propolis + Niacinamide 

The antioxidants in this serum promote the regeneration of dead skin cells, and its formulation including Niacinamide helps the skin look refreshed and healthy.
