Hyperpigmentation is a patchy darker skin that forms due to the excessive melanin production in the skin. This usually occurs when there is acne which leads to acne scars. Sunburns or wounds that are left untreated will then form to become a patch or scars in the skin.

We all probably have heard and read many times about the whitening benefits of Niacinamide and vitamin c in skincare but how about Tranexamic acid and Azelaic acid? These two agents have been clinically proven to depigment the skin and get rid of stubborn scars or dark patches in the skin.

Whether you are indoor or outdoor, It’s extremely important to use sunscreen to protect the skin from the raging sunlight.

It’s recommended to Incorporate at the very least SPF PA++30-40 to protect the skin.
According to research, soybeans and collagens are beneficial in helping to whiten the skin from the inside. Soya bean milk has been long used in China and asian countries to naturally whiten and brighten the skin. Drinking soya bean milk two times a week can help whiten the skin. Women in their pregnancy stages, and young children were encouraged to drink soya bean milk to help whiten and soften their skin. In South Korea, collagen was used in the form of powder, supplement drinks and skincare to whiten the skin overtime as well as increasing skin elasticity. Incorporating collagen supplements can help whiten the skin and also form a healthy skin in the long run. Good ones are BB Lab's The Collagen Up and Collagen Plus by Nature's Way.
