    Lightbulb Things work best for fading pigmentation

    Look for creams and serums that contain Vitamin C, Green Teas, Liquorice, Kojic Acid, Mulberry Leaf extract, Paper Mulberry, Arbutin. All of these have the ability to inhibit tyrosinase, modify the melanin pigment or have an anti free radical effect, thus having an effect on pigmentation. And of course a SUN BLOCK!

    Excess production of melanin causes pigmentation.Licorice extract can be a treatment but the skin should not be exposed to sunlight.

    Default Fading Hyperpigmentation naturally

    Fade hyperpigmentation naturally by using a non-toxic microdermabrasion kit. Keep in mind that it will take six one month treatments to see a big result. Also, always avoid too much sun and use a very high number uva uvb full spectrum sunscreen daily to prevent further uneven tone. All the best to you.

    Here is more info on licorice extract. It is great for lightening.

    ECOCERT certified organic extract of licorice roots (glycyrrhiza glabra). The extract contains glycyrrhetic acid & flavinoids that have anti-inflammatory, regenerative & antioxidant properties. Licorice extract can inhibit the melanogenesis and is thus used also as skin whiteningn agent. Amber liquid, characteristic odor. Water-soluble.

    Always use a broad spectrum sun screen. I just can't say that enough. Even if you don't use anything else on your skin in the summer a sun screen in a must year round no matter where you live.
