  • Pigment Banishers

    It might not be an often-discussed skincare concern, but pigmentation is surprisingly common, especially after the sun exposure of the summer months. While prevention is the best form of treatment (hello, SPF), there are many high-performance products that can significantly reduce the appearance of dark spots and leave skin looking even and radiant. We’ve picked four that have really impressed us.

    Aurelia London

    The Probiotic Concentrate, 10ml£38

    Whenever I tan, my complexion tends to get very freckly, especially around my hairline and under-eye area. Over the summer months this doesn’t bother me; however, during the winter, when my skin is paler, they can look like dark spots, so I like to diminish them as much as I can. I’ve been using Aurelia Probiotic Skincare The Probiotic Concentrate, which I’ve found to be effective. The light serum formula contains a host of actives that target pigmentation and UV damage, repairing skin and creating a more even tone. I love how quickly it sinks into skin, making it a good base for moisturiser, SPF and make-up. 


    Skin Meditation

    Stress Neutralizing Cellular Energy Complex£100

    While I don’t suffer from severe pigmentation, I do have very fair skin, which is prone to freckles after sun exposure – so after the summer months I feel like it needs some extra TLC. Elixseri Stress Neutralising Cellular Energy Complex is formulated to calm and rebalance stressed skin, leaving it looking even and glowing. It contains Arabian cotton concentrate to counteract the effects of the sun’s rays and help boost natural SPF, while mangosteen ferment and Swiss garden cress help tackle pigmentation. The gentle formula suits my sensitive skin, so I use this daily, followed by SPF. Get 20% off using the code ICONS20. 


    MZ Skin

    Light-Therapy Facial Treatment Device£385

    When it comes to pigmentation, acne scarring has always been my main issue. However, I now prevent and treat it with light therapy. MZ Skin Light-Therapy Golden Facial Treatment Device uses five different coloured lights (red, blue, green, yellow and white) to calm and rejuvenate the skin, while killing acne-causing bacteria, evening out scarring and diminishing pigmentation. It’s very easy and comfortable to use; simply secure it using the adjustable strap and leave for 10 minutes, gradually building up to a 30-minute session. 



    Drunk Elephant

    T.L.C. Framboos Glycolic Night Serum£76

    Hyperpigmentation is probably my biggest skincare concern; I don’t tend to have breakouts, but when I do get blemishes, I’m left with scars and dark marks that can take months to fade. So, my skincare regimen is focused on achieving an even skin tone and keeping my skin bright and radiant. Drunk Elephant T.L.C. Framboos Glycolic Night Serum is a 12% alpha and beta hydroxy acid night serum, formulated with glycolic, salicylic, citric and lactic acids, which work together to gently exfoliate dead skin cells and help reduce the appearance of discolouration. I always apply an SPF the following morning.
