The reasons for facial pigmentation (and elsewhere on the body) can be numerous and vary from the use of birth control pills, over exposure to the sun, pregnancy and even chemicals found in certain perfumes, shampoos and soaps. Although it’s not usually dangerous, it can have a negative impact on our confidence levels.

But don’t fear, SkinBase is here to share some wonderful ways to hide and treat pigmentation and let your true beauty shine through!

Prevention is better than cure

First things first, it’s important to ask yourself, can I prevent pigmentation? Even though there are a variety of reasons that can cause hyperpigmentation to occur, we can be proactive about preventing pigmentation from sun damage by using a high quality sunblock. Try to ensure sunscreen is a key part of your beauty routine and don’t ever leave home without it, even in winter as the sun can still impact on your skin.

Conceal it

Using concealer is a quick, inexpensive and easy way to cover up pigmentation. One thing to keep in mind is that although most concealers are great for covering up pimples, they might not be the best solution for covering up pigmentation. So, the best thing is to experiment with different concealers before you find one that works for you.

Correct it

Corrective concealers and primers work by covering up pigmentation by using a contrasting colour on the colour wheel to neutralise the imperfection. Have you ever been intrigued by concealers which are green or lavender in colour? Well now you know why! It might seem a bit strange to use coloured concealer or primer, but coloured correctors can work wonders for some skin imperfections, even better than the flesh-toned type!

Lubricate it

Rosehip oil is a life safer when it comes to covering up pigmentation. It works by improving the condition of your skin and is known to increase the elasticity of your skin, thereby improving the texture, and it’s an all-natural way to fade dark spots and scars!


If you are looking for more of a long lasting fix rather than a cover up, why not try microdermabrasion?

The SkinBase Facial™ was designed as a skin pigmentation treatment and can therefore vastly improve the appearance of facial pigmentation and skin blemishes.

Regular microdermabrasion treatments are proven to show significant benefits as a skin pigmentation treatment. Microdermabrasion can help improve the appearance of sun-damaged skin and remove unwanted facial pigmentation blemishes.
