Now is the Time to Address Hyperpigmentation

24 October, 2014 | posted by Carly Poore

Sun damage can show on the skin long after summer ends, especially in the form of dark spots. With the change of seasons, now is the time address your hyperpigmentation with your Epionce regime!

The key to fighting hyperpigmentation is to block factors that cause inflammation. With environmental activators like UV radiation and heat on the decline in the cold weather months your skin has time to repair during fall and winter. Products intended to reduce dark spots can have an aggravating effect on skin, but the gentle botanicals in Epionce are proven to stop the process of hyperpigmentation and will help dark spots fade away.

The best start to an Epionce regime is a Renewal product to reduce chronic inflammation that can lead to hyperpigmentation. With cold, dry weather try the Intensive Nourishing Cream. It is the best choice for maximum hydration. Potato peptides help to optimise barrier function and azelaic acid is great for anti-inflammatory and brightening properties to help stop hyperpigmentation before it starts.

If you’ve been treating hyperpigmentation with hydroquinone, take a break this winter and switch to the Epionce MelanoLyte Skin Brightening System. Using MelanoLyte Tx for day and night, plus MelanoLyte Pigment Perfecting Serum in the evening, synergistically targets the entire process that leads to hyperpigmentation. By addressing the entire process, rebound is prevented for long-lasting results without the irritation or need to cycle off with hydroquinone.

Key botanicals in the MelanoLyte Skin Brightening System like licorice root and turmeric hinder the pigmentation process, while peppermint reduces inflammation that leads to more hyperpigmentation. Bamboo also helps promote cell turnover that brings new skin cells to the surface of the skin.

Of course, to prevent UV damage don’t forget the sunscreen in the fall and winter! Apply the Ultra Shield Lotion SPF50 under makeup and to décolleté to block UV rays that pierce clouds and windows even during winter months.

Make lasting changes from now until next summer with the gentle yet powerful products found in the Epionce line!
