Last week, this blog looked at the condition known as hyperpigmentation, where skin can become patchy and uneven in colour. This can have a multitude of causes, including overexposure to UV rays or free radicals in the environment, or as the result of inflammation.
What we touched on only briefly was the fact dermatologists have been working hard to formulate products which can help people overcome this phenomenon by attempting to even out the skin tone again.
The Dermalogica Chromawhite TRx range is one such set of products whose ingredients have been carefully chosen for their ability to penetrate the dermis and help minimise the deposit of colour in skin cells, as well as brighten existing surface spots.
The Dermalogica Chromawhite TRx Tri-Active Cleanser has a triple-active concentrated formula, which utilises ingredients including soybean seed extract, mulberry root and giant fennel root to brighten the skin. It is designed to improve skin clarity by lifting away dull cells.
Another product in the range, Pure Night Moisturiser, is designed to be used before going to bed, with the aim of repairing damage caused by exposure to our daily environment, at the same time as correcting tone imbalance. Jojoba seed, cranberry and raspberry seed oils offer a fruity barrier against moisture loss, while Antioxidants liquorice root extract, white tea extract and beta-carotene help scavenge free radicals and to combat over production of melanin.
The Extreme C powder to emulsion treatment can be used as a stand-alone product or mixed with your prescribed daily Dermalogica moisturiser for instant brightness and skin clarity. As well as its magic ingredient, Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate, it also contains antioxidant white tea extract, and glucosamine, algae extract, yeast extract and lactobacillus pumpkin fruit ferment, to smooth and enhance.
Finally, the Dermalogica Chromawhite TRx C12 Concentrate serum helps to treat cellular discolouration by absorbing fast to enhance the skin’s barrier lipid layer. A special combination of peptides, mineral amino acids and botanical extracts go to work to defend the skin from future damage. It has a silky smooth finish.
