What can I do to prevent hyperpigmentation from developing?
It is an unavoidable fact that due to genetic factors, certain skin types are simply more prone to hyperpigmentation. Even with a healthy lifestyle, genes make up a huge part of the development of our skin. But there are several preventative measures that help reduce or obliterate the risk of developing hyperpigmentation.
Given that exposure to UV rays is a serious risk factor, getting adequate sun protection is a concern to be addressed. You can start by getting a sunscreen with a PA+++ rating, or an SPF of at least 30. Do ensure that you apply the recommended amount: the general rule of thumb is around two tablespoons. Focus on the parts of the face and body that are at risk of sun exposure.
Reapply the sunscreen when necessary, especially for prolonged exposure to the sun. The sunscreen should ideally contain physical ‘blockers’ or ‘reflectors’ of UV rays, such as titanium dioxide or zinc oxide in their formulation. Be sure to check the ingredients list when shopping for a new sunscreen.
