Step 2: Prevent the formation of new pigmentation

Use melanogenesis inhibitors to block melanin production and other specialized ingredients to prevent transfer of pigment from melanocytes to skin cells. Look for kojic acid, licorice, emblica, oyster phoenix mushroom and vitamin C.

Step 3: Protect against UV rays

Skin that is not protected from the sun is susceptible to further hyperpigmentation.  Using a photo-stable daily broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30 is the key to preventing further pigmentation.
