  • Hyperpigmentation is caused by an overproduction of melanin.
  • It is particularly prevalent in dark skin tones and can take a long time to treat.
  • The best hyperpigmentation products come at a variety of price points.

You often hear that a flawless face of makeup starts with a great skin-care routine, but if you have hyperpigmentation, clear skin isn't always that simple. For many people of colour, the effects of scarring and hyperpigmentation can be difficult to treat, especially on the heels of an adolescent- or hormonal-acne flare-up. Even if you're able to get rid of your breakouts, banishing the lingering dark spots can be a long, challenging process.

As editors, we've tried and invested in prestige full-cover foundations and concealers when dealing with our own bouts of hyperpigmentation, but we also know that truly addressing the root causes of hyperpigmentation will result in playing the long game. On our respective quests for clear skin, we've found what feels like a treasure trove of hyperpigmentation products that work across our different skin types to get us one step closer to the end goal: clear, even skin.

Whether you're shopping at the drugstore or open to trying those pricier, aesthetician-approved brands, we've scoured the beauty landscape for the best hyperpigmentation products on the market. From the best hyperpigmentation serum to peels that can give you professional results at home, these will get you one step closer to making dark marks a thing of the past. Get ready to shop products for hyperpigmentation that your beauty routine needs.
