What Is Hyperpigmentation?
Hyperpigmentation refers to patches of skin that are darker in color than the skin surrounding it. The contrast of light and dark patches creates the appearance of an uneven skin tone. This (very common) skin condition affects all races.
What Causes Hyperpigmentation?
Hyperpigmentation is caused by the overproduction of melanin in the skin; melanin is a brown pigment that protects the skin from harsh effects such as wounds and/or UV radiation. When the body produces extra melanin, portions of the pigment will inevitably be deposited in the same area. These melanin deposits create the dark spots that appear on the surface of the skin.
What Triggers Hyperpigmentation?
- Prolonged Sun Exposure
- Skin Injuries/Inflammation
- Shaving on Dry Skin
How To Treat Hyperpigmentation
This collection will treat your hyperpigmentation by breaking up the melanin deposits the surface of the skin while simultaneously lightening and brightening your dark spots. Here is our recommended routine to tackle your hyperpigmentation:
Step #1: Breakdown Melanin Pigments
Massage your skin with our Nordic Dry Brush to break down the melanin pigments on the skin’s surface. We created our dry brush with all natural bristles to cater to sensitive skin and avoid irritation.
Gently buff the skin (think legs, arms, tummy, tush, and bikini line) in an upward motion towards your heart. We recommend using this product 1-3 times a week (pre-shower) - depending on how sensitive your skin is.
Step #2: Lighten dark spots
Treat your dark spots to a gentle yet effective scrubbing in the shower. The Bermuda Scrub is infused with essential oils and nourishing ingredients, such as lemon essential oil, that will lighten and brighten the skin. Take a small handful of scrub and gently massage it in a circular motion onto your dark spots. For the best results, use in the shower 2-3 times a week - depending on how sensitive your skin is.
Step #3: Treat
The Bermuda Treatment Oil will replenish your skin and treat your dark spots. This formula contains essential oils that will lighten the skin and fade the appearance of dark spots. We recommend gently massaging the Bermuda Oil into your dark spots after showering. For the best results, apply the product within two minutes of stepping out of the shower since the skin is most absorbent during this time.
Step #4: Repeat
With consistent use the products in this collection will reduce the appearance of dark spots and help prevent future occurrences of hyperpigmentation.
