How to get rid of hyperpigmentation

If you have skin, you’ve probably experienced hyperpigmentation at some point in your life.

What is hyperpigmentation?: 

Hyperpigmentation is a common condition that makes some areas of the skin darker than others. “Hyper” means more, and “pigment” means color. 

Hyperpigmentation can appear as brown, black, gray, red or pink spots or patches depending on your skin type.

These “spots” are sometimes called dark spots, age spots, sun spots or liver spots.

When I was younger I absolutely struggled with my confidence. Not only was I frequently breaking out but I was constantly popping my pimples and leaving scars on my face.

What causes hyperpigmentation?: 

Hyperpigmentation is caused by an increase in melanin (yassss). Melanin is the natural pigment that gives our skin, hair and eyes their color. A number of factors can trigger an increase in melanin production, but the main ones are sun exposure, hormonal influences, age and skin injuries or inflammation.

Often times, beauty brands want to offer you a fast and simple fix but these “fast fixes” often promote using products with harmful chemicals that can sometimes exacerbate your hyperpigmentation or cause further breakout.

I remember using a product from a very popular company that literally made my skin BURN. I thought “maybe it’s supposed to make my skin feel this way” when in actuality it caused me an entire year of having to repair the further damage that it caused.

Eventually I turned to a more natural route of healing my skin by using bentonite clay (also known as the Indian healing mask or Aztec clay) that I’d bought for myself from Walmart but became extremely disturbed when I learned that Indian healing clay CONTAINS LEAD?!?!?

Who wants lead on their skin?!? 

There is a literal warning label on the package that many of us overlook. I’ll talk about this in another blog.

This lead to me (no pun intended) going on a search to find a safe and healing remedy which I found in my Rhassoul Clay.

After doing trials with using a simple turmeric mask, I remember getting compliments DAILY on my glow but I couldn’t ignore the fact that the turmeric homemade mask that I was using for personal use was turning my skin orange! 

After months of willing human testing I found the perfect ingredients to make a healing clay mask for everyone to enjoy.

Not only can my Rhassoul Clay and Turmeric Healing Mask be used on your face to clear your hyperpigmentation but it can also be used on your armpits, hair & scalp and even hyperpigmentation due to shaving your bikini line (but be sure not to get it on your V we haven’t done testing for that…. Yet lol)

Some reviews we’ve received about our face masks are that they’re detoxifying and when used on your face can often give you the results of a “natural facelift.”

I’ve watched people from the ages of 16-70 enjoy the benefits of my Rhassoul Clay and Turmeric Healing Mask for the last 5 years and the healing is undeniable.

How to use the clay:

  1. Put your clay in a wooden, glass or rubber bowl.

  2. Mix your clay with apple cider vinegar or rose water if you prefer a more gentle solution. 

  3. Mix your clay until it becomes a loose paste.

  4. Apply your clay with a rubber spoon, a wooden spoon or with your fingers to your skin.

  5. Let the clay dry naturally.

  6. Wash the clay off of your face after it is fully dried.

  7. Apply your Ethereal Rose Water Hydrating Love Mist & Ethereal Healing & Illuminating Serum.


And there you have it. You have taken a major step into healing your skin.

If you are struggling with a breakout I recommend using the clay 7 days in a row.

Afterward you can apply it twice a week & or use a spot treatment for small stress and hormonal breakouts.

So what do you think? Are you ready to enhance your self care routine and heal your hyperpigmentation?!

Thanks for learning How to get rid of dark spots!
