Pigmentation is your skins way of protecting itself, but when you look in a mirror, it’s simply an unwanted and unslightly annoyance. Pigmentation or dark spots that appear when a spot or blemish disappears are called ‘post-inflammatory pigmentation’.
Pigmentation or dark spots come into existence when your skin has been damaged in some way. The area within which they form is inflamed. Then, when the sunlight hits the inflamed area, it turns immediately darker.

The pesky blackhead is a common problem. But can we ever really get rid of them?
Blackheads are simply blocked pores caused by the overproduction of oil (sebum) from the sebaceous glands in the skin. This natural substance keeps the skin lubricated but too much of it can cause a build-up in the pores. When exposed to the air they simply turn black. Over a period of time the pores begin to enlarge and are therefore vulnerable to becoming blocked again and again, so blackheads can be an ongoing problem.
Keeping up a good skincare regime is vital to stopping blackheads, but if you want to try and get rid of them all in just 30 minutes, read on!Read More
