Common Myths about Pigmentation

Monday, September 9, 2013 - 1:04pm

Skin discolorations, such as hyperpigmentation and melasma, are common, yet frustrating concerns. PCA SKIN professional treatments and daily care products contain a blend of proven pigment-fighting ingredients that work to prevent the production and distribution of pigment, while also reducing existing dark spots.

Myth:

Scrubbing the skin using wash cloths, sponges or gritty exfoliants helps to remove dark spots

Fact:

Inflammation actually triggers your skin to produce pigment. Scrubbing and irritating your skin will typically make skin discoloration worse, not better.

 

Myth:

I have really bad patches of pigment after having my baby, so I will only get rid of it if I use the strongest products available.

Fact:

The discoloration associated with pregnancy is called melasma and harsh products may actually make it worse. Gentle products with multiple lightening ingredients are best.

 

Common Myths about Pigmentation - Part 3

 

Myth:

Once I get rid of my skin discoloration, it is gone for good.

Fact:

People who are prone to skin discoloration can always develope more. Daily use of products that suppress the pigment-producing process will maintain results.
