Don’t fight skin discoloration, get even

Discoloration is an area of abnormal darkening of the skin, either visible spots or dark patches. Discoloration happens when your skin produces excess pigment, usually triggered by sun exposure, hormone fluctuations or skin injuries like acne, cuts or burns.

It is important to consult with a PCA SKIN® Certified Professional before using products to treat skin discoloration, as high percentages of certain ingredients can cause further irritation or darkening of the spots you’re intending to lighten.
