Hyperpigmentation is a concern that affects men and women the world over. But despite its prevalence, lots of people don’t know how best to treat their dark marks and patches of discolouration, or even whether their pigmentation is reversible at all. So, to mark the launch of Bioderma White Objective, a brightening programme for hyperpigmented skin (discover the range in this post), we took to Twitter and asked our customers to reveal their most pressing concerns.
Bioderma’s Head of Training, Emilie Montassier and International Trainer, Pascal Piedimonte were on hand to take all of your questions. Here are some of our favourites…
What’s the best type of product for tackling hyperpigmentation? A serum/toner/nightcream etc?
All of the WO products are complementary and are great for treating hyperpigmentation when used altogether! Here’s what I recommend, follow every day for four months to achieve the best results:
– Cleanse and remove make-up with WO H20 Micellar Solution.
– Apply WO Lightening Fluid every morning. WO fluid contains (among many other great ingredients) a filtering system that avoids the daily aggravation of pigmentation.
– Apply WO Lightening Serum every evening. WO Serum complements and enhances the action of WO Fluid, and the keratolytic action of WO serum more quickly eliminates the melanin already present in the skin.
– After applying WO serum used Hydrabio Light (normal/combination skin) or Rich (dry skin).
– And finally, to ensure your treatment is a success, avoid sun exposure and apply Photoderm Spot every two hours.
Pretty persistent dark patches on temples/cheekbone – occurred after pregnancy, how can White Objective help?
The White Objective range is perfect for pregnancy mask. You need to use the full program of WO for 4 months. To avoid the pregnancy mask after your baby arrives, it is necessary to apply a high sun protection product like Photoderm Spot every day, which protects from UV rays and decreases the synthesis of melanin at the same time to avoid hyperpigmentation.
