How To Naturally Treat Dark Spots and Hyperpigmentation On The Body

How To Naturally Treat Dark Spots and Hyperpigmentation On The Body

If you are experiencing dark spots and hyperpigmentation on your body, you aren't the only person. While both dark spots and hyperpigmentation are completely normal, they can be very frustrating. This blog post will go over what causes dark spots and hyperpigmentation, and how you can treat and prevent them.

 

What causes dark spots

Dark spots and hyperpigmentation are very common, can happen anywhere on the body, and are caused by the overproduction of melanin in the skin by melanocytes. Extra production of melanin can be caused by many factors, like our hormones, the sun, and age. Dark spots can also be caused by acne, ingrown hairs, scarring, shaving, or waxing.

How to treat dark spots and hyperpigmentation

Exfoliate weekly with Dark Spot Exfoliating Scrub

Our Dark Spot Exfoliant contains lemon essential and tea tree oil to help treat and soften dark spots. In addition, you'll find our go-to antioxidant rich blend of Jojoba and Grapeseed oil to moisturize and rejuvenate your skin. This exfoliant will scrub away dull and dead skin cells and reveal healthy skin, all while breaking up the melanin pigments. 

For best results use this scrub 2-3 times a week in the shower in a gentle, circular motion. Make sure you are scheduling your exfoliating routine before getting a wax, shaving, or sugar hair removal appointment.

Treat Dark Spots Naturally With Bermuda Oil

Bermuda Oil will generally target dark spots and/or uneven skin tones. It will not, however, change your skin tone. People regardless of skin tone and ethnicity can benefit from brightening and whitening products when targeting dark spots on their skin.

The Bermuda formula can gently break down melanin that's built up in the skin and over time achieve a more even skin tone. Like every skincare product, these results won't happen overnight, but incorporating the Bermuda brightening product into your routine will help address those darker areas you've been wanting to get rid of, regardless of your skin tone. Most users begin seeing results within a 1-3 month timeframe. For best results, you should apply Bermuda Oil within the first two minutes of getting out of the shower while your skin is most absorbent.

Other Ways To Prevent Dark Spots and Hyperpigmentation

At the end of the day, an easy way to prevent dark spots or hyperpigmentation from happening in the first place is by applying and wearing your sunscreen daily.

To conclude, dark spots and hyperpigmentation are normal and common but there are ways to treat them. By exfoliating and applying Bermuda Oil daily, you can lighten dark spots and hyperpigmentation.

Exfoliate Your Skin

After your skin and hair are prepped it’s time to exfoliate. We recommend you detox your skin twice a week before showering with the Nordic Dry Brush. This is a great way to remove dead skin cells, get your blood circulation going, soften the appearance of cellulite, and stimulate lymphatic drainage. We also recommend, using one of our natural exfoliating body scrubs 2-3 times a week. All of our scrubs are sugar-based, packed with natural oils, and help prevent ingrown hairs, dark spots, and blemishes.
