Hyperpigmentation

WHAT IS HYPERPIGMENTATION?

Hyperpigmention is described as areas of abnormal darkening of the skin.  This condition is a result of inflammation and can be trigged by sun exposure, hormonal imbalances or skin injuries (acne, cut or burn).  The excessive stimulation of melanin is the result of uneven darkened skin, which can effect all skin types.

Skin color is determined by the amount of pigment or melanin.  The cells that are manufacturing this pigment are called melanocytes, which are found throughout the lower level of the epidermis.  Melanocytes manufacture melaosomes where melanin synthesis occurs.  It is created when tyrosinase, an enzyme in the melanocyte, converts tyrosine, an amino acid, into melanin.  The key to correct pigment is to interrupt the biochemical cascade and use active ingredients to suppress the enzyme system responsible for melanin production.

ONLY YOURx has developed advanced formulas containing active brightening ingredients and corrective antioxidant blends to help reduce pigmented skin.  Along with our broad-spectrum UVA/UVB protection, this will protect against furthering melanin stimulation.
