Trusted Kiehl’s To Treat My Thirsty, Hyperpigmented skin
Kiehl's - Daily Reviving Concentrate If I can only pick 1 brand of skincare to use my entire life, it would be Kiehl’s. I’ve been a fan for years now since I’ve laid my hands on that blue bottle of midnight recovery serum. I’ve tried a number of their products and my skin just loves it. This Daily Reviving Concentrate has the same consistency as the Midnight Recovery Serum- it’s light, just a tad thicker than water. I use this in the morning to treat my thirsty skin after I double cleanse my face, and after applying toner and essence. I particularly love that it’s hydrating but it doesn’t leave my face oily. I can instantly feel its moisturizing properties but it’s not too much so as to leave my face greasy. It’s a good makeup base as it leaves a bit of a glow to my skin. Sometimes I like putting a teeny weeny drop on the side of my eye - the area where you normally apply highlighter - to highlight the high points of my face. I do that when I don’t have a foundation on, which is literally every day now because of the lockdown. I swear by this product. Kiehl's - Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Solution I suffer from hyperpigmentation because I liked suntanning until about 4 years ago. Back then, I didn’t know that the sun rays would give me sun spots even if I wear SPF. Fast forward to today, I have learned my lesson and I try to stay out of the sun as much as I could. I love tanning so I just use self tanning products to fake a glow. Due to my sun frolicking days, I developed a bit of sun spots on my cheeks. I combat these by using products with vitamin C or niacinamide. I particularly love this dark spot solution from Kiehl’s as it has a mixture of different acids that help in brightening the pigmentation, plus it’s gentle. I have sensitive skin so it’s really easy for me to feel a slight tingling sensation when I use products with acids or vitamin C but this product is so gentle that I didn’t feel anything the first time I applied it. I have seen some improvements on the uneven texture of my face. The pigmentation on my cheeks have since lightened a bit. I also love the smell of this serum. It feels like I’m in a spa whenever I put it on my face. Definitely a must try if you’re looking for something gentle to treat your hyperpigmentation.
