The secret to treating Hyperpigmentation: Beta Hydroxy Acids

No one likes acne bumps and those dark spots that come after. While hyperpigmentation can take many different forms, some tried and tested treatments are easily accessible to all. Today, we will talk about Beta Hydroxy Acids and how a few drops can help fade those dark spots better. Commonly known as BHA, Beta Hydroxy Acids have a small particle size which allows them to seep into the pore and melt all the built-up sebum and grime in clogged pores. This makes BHAs an excellent choice to treat closed pores, blackheads, and textured skin. Additionally, just a few drops of BHA on cleansed and dry skin can exfoliate the top layer of the skin. This helps to fade dark spots, melasma and other types of hyperpigmentation.

Salicylic Acid is the most common type of Beta Hydroxy Acid and is readily available over the counter. Salicylic Acid is a common ingredient in cleansers for acne-prone skin. For those looking to treat hyperpigmentation, using BHA in the form of a serum would be the most effective. Like most treatments capable of treating hyperpigmentation, BHA serums are likely to make the skin more sensitive to sun exposure. Using broad-spectrum sunblock of a minimum of SPF 30 is essential to maintain good skin health and prevent further hyperpigmentation.
