4. Best Hyperpigmentation Treatment THE INKEY LIST Tranexamic Acid Night Treatment $14.99
What causes skin discoloration and darkening? The answer is melanin. Or the overproduction of melanin, to be more precise, and tranexamic acid is a depigmenting agent which can inhibit this. Through reducing melanin production, discoloration will eventually fade.
A little goes a long way with this tranexamic acid night treatment. Apply a thin layer before sleep after your favorite serum and it will work its magic overnight.

With most exfoliating products, you can only use it for a maximum of 3 times a week. Dr. Murad’s innovative bi-phase peel can be used daily since it moisturizes while it’s exfoliating. With no drying side effects, add this to your nighttime routine in place of a toner then follow with a serum and moisturizer. Make sure you shake well to blend the 2 phases together before use and after applying it on your face, sweep it over your neck and chest. Remember to apply sunscreen the next morning!
