Manual Exfoliation For Hyperpigmentation – Face + Body

We Love Scrubs

When we say “manual exfoliation for hyperpigmentation” we’re talking scrubs!

 

But not the TLC kinda scrubs….

Be T Dubs

If you’re old enough to remember that TLC 1999 throw back, you for sure need to pay attention to this article.  Grab a pumpkin spiced latte and settle in hon, because we got some knowledge for you!

Why Manual Exofoliation For Hyperpigmentation?

See, the skin that you see is dead.  I know it’s sad and a little unsetteling.  Yes, your skin is the largest living organ on the body, but the part of the skin that you can see and touch is actually dead.  Don’t be sad, those dead cells get replaced on a regular basis.  Even though, as we age, the rate at which the skin cells are replaced slows down.  Yeah, bummer right?  Everything slows down as we age.  Our metabolism, our hyaluronic acid production, and our stem cell production, which is the root cause for the slow down of the cell turn over (dead skin cells getting replaced).

Hyperpigmentation + Aging:  Adding Insult To Injury

So we’re left with a lot more dead skin on our face and body.  Now here’s where the insult is added to the injury!  Not only are you getting older – and everyting is slowing down – but we’re hit with a double whammie!  You see there’s this nasty business of hyperpigmentation, a maority of which, comes from environmental damage (sun, pollution, and some other yuck too).  This environmental damage is hitting your skin from day one of life.  It’s hitting it deep down inside.  The damage (the damage is hyperpigmentation) is builidng up and building up deep inside of your skin and it’s just waiting for the chance to work its way up to the surface.   So as we get older – after years of skin cell turnover, those dark spots get to the surface – and they set up camp – BAM – that’s it right there!  The dark spots you see on our face and body!

Honestly:  it’s like a shitty version of a retirement plan. 

Although, you can also get post inflammatory hyperpigmentation, which can happen after a trauma to the skin.  My peeps who are #melaninkissed (thank you TenishaNicole Hicks from Isha Esthetics for that amazing hashtag) know about this all too well.  Get a pimple, get a cut, get an ingrown, —- you get a dark spot!

Don’t give up!  All hope is not lost!  You can fight back – that’s where manual exofoliation for hyperpigmentation comes in!  All those dead skin cells on your skin’s surface that you can see and touch – you can scrub them away!  Those dark spots that have made their way to the skin’s surface can be scrubbed away, revealing new skin cells, that may not be as dark.
