What Is Hyperpigmentation and what are the causes?
Hyperpigmentation is the name given to patches of skin that become darker than surrounding areas of skin. Types of hyperpigmentation include age spots, melasma, and post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation.
Hyperpigmentation occurs when the skin produces more melanin, the pigment that gives skin its colour. Hyperpigmentation is a common skin condition, and it affects people of all skin types. Some forms of hyperpigmentation, including melasma and sun spots, are more likely to affect areas of skin that face sun exposure, including the face, arms, and legs. Causes and triggers of hyperpigmentation is the sun, hormonal changes and ageing.
Bidoerma has launched five new easy to use products for clients with sensitive skin wanting to combat skin problems relating to pigmentation. The range consists of the following products.
Pigmentbio H2O High-tolerance brightening micellar water and make-up remover
Pigmentbio Foaming Cream – Exfoliating cleansing cream for a brighened skin right from the shower
Pigmentbio Daily Care SPF 50+ Instantly illuminates and protects, unifies & brightens lastingly
Pigmentbio Sensitive Areas Unified and brightened skin tone even for the most delicate areas

As per the Bioderma website:
Inspired by the leading treatment in dermatology, – Its LumiReveal™ Technology acts on key steps of pigmentation: to reduce dark spots, prevent new ones from appearing and restore the skin’s original brightness, lastingly. Its unique balance between efficacy and tolerance ensures immediate and long lasting results, while respecting skin sensitivity.
It can be used as a relay (between dermatological depigmenting treatments) to extend their efficacy and optimize skin recovery, as well as monotherapy – on its own as a complete skin-care treatment for hyperpigmentation. First results are visible from two weeks and improve continuously with regular use.
I have been using the products faithfully for over a month now and I can see and feel a huge difference. Below is a photo of me with no makeup just my Bioderma Pigmentbio Daily Care SPF 50+ which Instantly illuminates and protects my skin.
Thanks for stopping by!
Lots of Love
