What are pigment inhibitor serums?
Pigment inhibitor serums are often used in skincare to help reduce the appearance of dark spots, hyperpigmentation, and uneven skin tone caused by various factors such as sun damage, acne, hormonal changes, and aging.
These serums typically contain ingredients that inhibit the production of melanin, the pigment responsible for the color of our skin, hair, and eyes. The importance of using a pigment inhibitor serum lies in its ability to help even out skin tone and improve the overall appearance of the skin. By reducing the production of melanin, these serums can help fade existing dark spots and prevent new ones from forming. They can also help brighten the complexion and give the skin a more youthful and radiant appearance.
However, it is important to note that while pigment inhibitor serums can be effective in improving the appearance of hyperpigmentation, they should be used in conjunction with other skincare practices, such as using a broad-spectrum sunscreen and avoiding excessive sun exposure, to achieve optimal results.
Additionally, alongside professional treatments such as peel or micro-needling it can optimise results of reducing hyperpigmentation and evening skin tone. It is recommended to consult with a skincare professional before incorporating any new products into your skincare routine and wanting advise on which skin treatments are right for your skincare concerns.
