Women Ask Why

Hyperpigmentation What Is It?

Get Rid of Hyperpigmentation Scarring


Before reading the information below here are a few  definitions you may ask WHAT IT THE WORLD DOES THAT MEAN?

  •  Stratum Corneum: The purpose of the stratum corneum is to form a barrier to protect underlying tissue from infectiondehydration, chemicals and mechanical stress
  • Ceramides : Are a family of waxy lipid molecules. A ceramide is composed of sphingosine and a fatty acid.


Hyperpigmentation can affect all skin types but is know as one of the most common skin conditions to affect women of color.  There are few subtle differences between caucasian skin and skin of color, so it helps to keep in mind when trying to treat hyperpigmentation on darker skin.

The Stratum corneum on caucasian skin and black skin are the same thickness, the stratum corneum in black skin has more cell layer making it more difficult to remove.

Hydration properties on different racial skin types also differ.  Due to the amount of ceramics in the stratum corneum the less ceramide count the less water the skin contains.  African American has the lowest count followed by Asian,Hispanic and caucasian  skin.

The Difference between caucasian skin and skin of color starts with the skin’s reaction to acne.  Darker skin will suffer inflammation below the surface of the skin while caucasian skin will not.  This is the most common cause of Hyperpigmentation on black skin.  A condition more commonly known as Post Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation (PIH)

With all skin conditions, you will need to treat the cause. Azelaic acid and Retinoid creams are the more popular choice for sufferers of acne.  Before trying to treat post inflammatory hyperpigmentation make sure the acne is under control otherwise you will end up in a never ending cycle out breakouts and scarring.  Once the acne is under control then began the process of healing the skin can begin.

Start with a daily exfoliating routine Exfoliating the skin on the regular basis will remove any dead skin cells and speeds up the renewal process.  Make sure that you make time to do this every day. The benefits will be work the time taken.

After exfoliating the next step will be to close the pores with a natural skin toner.  There are a many different products on the market but a aloe vera based product will work the best.  Aloe Vera is an anti-inflammatory and well known for its skin healing properties.

Next will be to apply vitamin e oil to the skin everyday.  You can buy this online or stores like Walmart or Target.   You can also buy  Vitamin e capsule and snip the top off and apply it to your face or infected area.
