Pigment spots occur when the production of melanin (pigment) in your skin is disrupted. Excessive production of melanin causes pigment to accumulate in the epidermis (outer layer of skin), causing dark spots to appear.
Pigment spots can occur almost anywhere, but especially in areas where your skin comes in contact with UV radiation, such as your face, neck, décolleté and hands. Therefore, the biggest culprit of pigmentation spots is the sun, because your skin produces plenty of pigment cells to protect itself when in contact with UV rays.
There are many things you can do to fade pigment spots and make them less noticeable. How well it helps depends on the depth of the pigment spots. If necessary, seek the advice of a dermatologist.
Suitable products for reducing pigmentation can be found below.

- Skin Cleanser

It is important to cleanse your skin properly both in the morning and at night. If you don't do this or only use water, pores will get clogged and impurities may appear. Cleansing your skin also ensures that skin care products are absorbed properly, as they cannot pass through the skin layer properly if the skin is not cleansed. After this, use the lotion to restore the pH level of your skin and to give it an immediate moisture boost!
Directions for use: mix the skin cleanser in your hands with lukewarm water to turn it into a foam. Then massage it over your face in circular motions for at least one minute. Rinse well and finally pat your face dry with a clean towel.

Grapefruit is an essential ingredient if you long for radiant and younger-looking skin. It is packed with vitamin A and this is a great anti-aging ingredient. It firms the skin and helps reduce fine lines and wrinkles by stimulating collagen production.
The vitamin C content in grapefruit acts as a gentle natural exfoliant while relieving pigmentation, reducing redness and intensely nourishing the skin. It also acts as an anti-inflammatory so is suitable for blemished skin.
Another property of grapefruit is that it makes skin less oily and refines pores. Exfoliating also stimulates blood flow to the skin, which improves the color of your skin.
Directions for use: use a small amount of the face scrub and apply to a still damp face. Of course, you can also use it in the shower. For one minute, massage the scrub onto your face with circular motions. Rinse well and gently pat your face dry with a clean towel. For best results, use it once or twice a week.
"I have less pigmentation and I am very happy with that. Recommend it to everyone. "
"Use it 2 times a week, is a gentle scrub. With 2 weeks of use, redness and pigmentation visibly reduced!!!"
"What a fine gentle scrub! Lovely scent, fine grain with super soft and smooth results! Use a few times a week and the skin becomes and stays radiantly smooth and fresh."
The moisturizing lotion is used after cleansing to rebalance the pH level. A disturbed pH level can cause your skin to no longer function optimally, leaving you with skin problems such as dehydration, oily skin or inflammation. That is why it is very important to use this product.
The lotion helps brighten the skin and contains many valuable minerals, antioxidants and vitamins for skin health. It prevents moisture loss and maintains a healthy moisture balance. The lotion is a guardian angel. It strengthens the barrier function and protects against harmful external influences such as sunlight.
A plus is that it enhances the action of the next products you apply. So a must-have skin care product!
Directions for use: After cleansing your skin, apply an appropriate amount of moisturizing lotion to your fingertips and gently massage it onto your face, neck and décolleté until absorbed.

Vitamin C is an antioxidant that helps to improve the condition of the skin. It has a positive effect on pigmentation spots. Pigmentation spots occur because the skin (over)actively produces pigment in the sun. Vitamin C ensures that the production of pigment is inhibited. However, it is important that you also use sun protection. Did you know that vitamin C increases the effectiveness of a sunscreen product and provides the skin with better protection against UV radiation?
Another great benefit of vitamin C is that it renews your skin's surface. It stimulates the production of collagen which firms the skin, making fine lines and wrinkles less visible. For blemishes, vitamin C protects against irritation, counteracts inflammation and helps to repair the skin, making red spots after a pimple fade faster.
Directions for use: Empty a filled pipette of the serum onto your palm and apply to your face, neck and décolleté in upward motions.
"Been using it for over 2 weeks now and the pigment spots are disappearing like snow in the sun! Great.... Ordered the rest of the skincare too.... am curious."
"This vitamin C serum works well for me against pigmentation spots. Am very happy with it!"
"For years looking for something that works against pigment spots (am 53 with light skin and pigment spots especially on sides of face). I have now found this in the vitamin C serum. Even while using the first bottle the spots became much lighter, some of them I could not find when I wanted to apply concealer. This summer I went on a sun vacation for three weeks. I was afraid I would be back to square one in terms of spots. But with factor 50 during the day and the vitamin C serum at night, I made it through the summer without too many spots. I will definitely keep using this serum."
Retinol belongs to a family called retinoids, which are forms of vitamin A that help increase cell and skin renewal. In this way, it is effective in fading discolorations and mitigating the damage that occurs with skin aging. It has the power to accelerate skin renewal, fading wrinkles, fine lines and pigment spots.
It also stimulates collagen production, making for firmer, smoother and more even skin.
Directions for use: Empty a filled pipette of the serum onto your palm and apply to your face, neck and décolleté in upward motions. Apply retinol only at night to avoid irritation from sun exposure. Avoid skincare with retinol if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. Always use an SPF during the day to protect your skin from sun exposure.

"I have been using this serum for a while now and notice that my pigmentation spots are greatly reduced, I use it at night in combination with the retinol night cream and it gives a nice result."
"I have been using the Retinol and vitamin C serum for six months now, am super satisfied and can't be left out of my daily care! My pigment spots have also really reduced, top products!"
Retinol is effective because once this ingredient is absorbed by the skin, it is broken down and converted into retinoic acid. Retinoic acid is the little substance that has an effect on skin cells and the way they behave. It can literally attach itself to almost any skin cell and transmit that cell to behave like a healthy skin cell. Retinol, therefore, restores skin cells. As healthy cells are created, pigmentation spots slowly diminish. After several months, this should become visible.

Directions for use: Using the spatula, apply an appropriate amount of cream to your fingertips and gently massage onto your face, neck and décolleté until absorbed.
