A common cause of hyperpigmentation is an excess production of melanin. Melanin is the pigment that gives skin its color.
Hyperpigmentation can be caused by sun damage, inflammation, or other skin injuries, including those related to acne vulgaris. People with darker skin tones are more prone to hyperpigmentation, especially with excess sun exposure.
These can be used individually, or in combination for the most powerful effect.
For pigmentation, you can use any of the below three regimes according to your preference and budget. Use them consistently and you should see noticeable results in 3-6 months. Although some people see results much more rapidly, most people see a gradual improvement over time.
Recommended Application Flow
Note: Please use 10% Triology only if this is your first time using FRESH vitamin C
Shake each bottle vigorously for a minute or two before opening to disperse the natural ingredients.
Full Routine: Morning: Triology + SkinKarma + HydraSilk Moisturiser + Sunscreen Night: Triology + ReNew + HydraSilk Moisturiser + Any of the oil serums as and when desired.
(The HydraSilk moisturiser can be replaced with any preferred moisturiser)
Wait a few seconds between each application to allow the serums to absorb and dry. Our Chinese Shan hand fan can speed the process.
The Triology serum always needs to go first and always needs to be used every day while fresh and active WITHIN ONE MONTH of receiving. The rest of the serums have a longer shelf life with a 'period after opening' of up to 12 months. Store in a cool dark place with lids tightly closed or can be stored in a fridge as long as it’s not TOO cold as this may accelerate crystalisation of the vitamin C in the Triology.
If you're not used to either fresh vitamin C or retinol and are using them together for the first time, then introduce them slowly. Use your Triology only for the first week or two then add in the ReNew every other night for a further week before using both together every day. This should help to avoid any possible irritation.
Note: If you're pregnant or breastfeeding, please substitute the night time application of ReNew serum for an additional application of SkinKarma.
