5 Best Shira Products for Hyperpigmentation

By Jordanna Antonoff, Licensed Esthetician and Shira Educator

Who doesn’t think they look better when they’re tan? During the summer, we try to get our best caramel toned skin by sitting on the beach or at the pool for hours at a time. Although our beautiful tans may make us look and feel like the Dancing with the Stars cast, the damage done by the sun may be hard to reverse and can have long-term negative effects on our skin. Around the fall and winter seasons, sun damage is one of the biggest concerns people come to their skin care specialists with. Luckily, if treated thoroughly and timely, skin care specialists can rid the skin of these pesky spots that we always seem to notice with effective in-office treatments and the best-recommended home care.

Here are 5 of the best Shira products to treat Hyperpigmentation to make your skin look flawless and rejuvenated from all the damage we created from the summer time fun. You can even buy hyperpigmentation skin care products online from Shira!

Shir-Radiance Corrective Rx Mandelic Serum 15%

Our Shir-Radiance Corrective Rx line combines the most innovative and advanced ingredients to combat signs of aging such as fine lines, wrinkles, and most importantly, sun damage. The Mandelic Serum 15% is a unique dark spot reverser suitable for even the most sensitive skin types. Mandelic Acid, an AHA made from almonds, exfoliates the superficial layer of the skin for longer periods of time, which effectively lifts dark spots sitting on the surface of the skin. Using this treatment nightly will reveal a more even skin tone without causing any irritation on the skin.

Shir-Radiance Corrective Rx Ester-C Brightening Serum

Shir-Radiance Corrective Rx utilizes a more stabilized form of Vitamin C called Ester-C. We use Ester-C because the benefits from this antioxidant on sun damage can be seen more quickly in lower doses and can be used on all skin types, even sensitive skin.

Shir-Organic Pure Apple Stem Cell Night Cream

If you would like to go with an all natural and organic approach to treating hyperpigmentation, there are many benefits for the skin from the Swiss Apples that are used in this lightweight, hydrating night cream. Swiss Apples are abundant in Vitamin C and antioxidants which help reduce the appearance of sun spots and help repair DNA Damage from sun exposure. Your skin will be hydrated after applying Apple Stem Cell Night Cream to your face, and it will aid in protecting skin cells from future sun damage and aging.

Glyco-C High Potent C Serum

Formulated with Glycolic Acid, and Vitamin C, this combination works synergistically to diminish the appearance of dark spots and hyperpigmentation, delivering an extra boost of brightening and radiance. Vitamin C, a strong anti-oxidant, exfoliates the skin superficially to lighten dark spots, while Glycolic Acid goes into the deeper layers of the skin to lift spots underneath the surface.

Professional in-office treatments for Hyper-Pigmentation

It’s difficult but important to remember to pamper yourself if you’re stressed, having a hard week at work, or busy with family activities all of the time. Why not relax and pamper yourself while also treating your sun damage?

Tips on Prevention Hyperpigmentation

It is important to take steps to prevent future sun damage and to be sure not to worsen current sun damage. Here are some tips to help prevent Hyper Pigmentation:

SPF, SPF! Please wear sunscreen daily, even if it is cloudy or cold out!

The importance of SPF could not be more emphasized in its importance for your skin care regimen. The use of daily SPF will tremendously reduce the chances of sun damage while also preventing future dark spots. Applying sunscreen every two hours while at the beach or pool is VITAL to not only prevent sunburn which leads to dark spots but most importantly, prevents skin cancer.

DO NOT PICK OR PEEL Sunburn or Acne: Picking or peeling flaking skin from sunburn, picking off a scar, or popping pimples injures the skin. Any trauma or injury to the skin may lead to hyper pigmentation. Please leave this to professional treatments, and pimple popping to your skin care professionals!

Make sure to finish a series of professional treatments to see the full benefits. A series of four to five peels are usually recommended to treat sun damage. Not completing a prescription medication, or not finishing a course of recommended professional treatments may not complete results.

Using home care and the best anti-aging products for your skin in between and after treatment will enhance benefits from your in-office procedure. Home care products are cumulative, meaning the more you use it, the better your skin will be.
