How I Got My Pigmentation Under Control With the Help of a Non-Invasive Machine

Lucie Clark

I’ve been into hard-core sun protection (think: a full face of white zinc-style SPF) and hats with brims so wide they could have their own post code since I was in my early teens. Pigmentation? Pff! No way was the sun getting through those layers of protection to mess up my skin.

Fast forward a few years to my early 20s and I’ve upgraded to a sunscreen that provides the full 50 without the white out effect (thank you beauty gods at SkinCeuticals for the Sheer Physical UV Defense Sunscreen SPF 50 ($43)) and thanks to my sun smart strategy my childhood freckles have pretty much faded. And then… I got hit with a hurricane of pigmentation. Wait, what? Um… What about all that zinc and staying out of the sun? No dice.

Read on to discover exactly what pigmentation is, and how I fixed it.
