Skin discolorations, such as hyperpigmentation, melasma and sundamage are common, yet frustrating concerns. MBK Clinical Skincare Solutions Hyperpigmentation Management daily products contain a blend of proven pigment fighting tyrosinase ingredients that work to prevent the production and distribution of pigment, while also reducing existing dark spots.
- Scrubbing the skin using wash cloths, sponges, coarse and gritty exfoliants help to remove dark spots.
- Inflammation actually triggers your skin to producr pigment. Scrubbing and irritating your skin will typically make skin discoloration worse, not better.
- I have really bad patches of pigment after having my baby, so I will only get rid of it if I use the strongest products available.
- The discoloration associated with pregnancy is called melasma and harsh products may actually make it worse. Gentle products with multiple tyrosinase inhibiting lightening ingredients are best.
- Once I get rid of my skin discoloration, it is gone for good.
- People who are prone to skin discoloration can always develop more. Daily use of tyrosinase inhibiting skin brightening products that suppress the pigment producing process will maintain results.

- Packets of pigment travel from the melanocyte to the skin cells
- The pigment is distributed like an umbrella to protect the cells' DNA from damage
- On the surface, the skin may have one small dark spot or be uniformly darker as with a suntan)
