We are thrilled to offer their new supplement system, Skin Even IQ as well as recommend other key supplements combined with your topical skincare regime to target pigmentation. 

What is pigmentation and hyperpigmentation?  

Pigmentation is a complex process that determines the colour of our skin, hair, and eyes. It is controlled by specialised cells called melanocytes, which are found in the basal layer of the skin's epidermis. These cells produce a pigment called melanin, which is responsible for giving our skin its unique shade. The skin concern pigmentation arises when this complex process becomes unbalanced and creates hyperpigmentation. Some melanocytes become overactive, leading to darker patches and discolouration. Hyperpigmentation can come in many different forms including discolouration, sunspots, age spots, dark spots uneven skin tone and brown marks.

Your skin is a two-sided organ. It’s key to incorporate supplements in your skincare regime to help you achieve 100% skincare. Supplements help feed your skin from the inside, to maximise your skincare results. The skin researchers at Advanced Nutrition Programme™ recommend the following supplements to achieve a radiant, even skin tone.

How do I target pigmentation?

Pigmentation can be stubborn and will require a 100% skincare approach including a combination of supplements, topical creams and targeted treatments to address and fade this skin concern. Speak to a skincare professional to discuss targeted treatments.

Time and dedication are key when targeting pigmentation. A spot that is a few shades darker than your natural skin colour may take from 6-12 months to fade and for more stubborn pigmentation, it can take years, according to the American Academy of Dermatology.[1]. Consistency is key for results, be patient – the results will come.
