Watch: Hyperpigmentation killing your glow (and your vibe)? Try these 3 MECCA must-haves

MECCA HQ’s perpetually glowy PR manager, Lucy, is giving us the 411 on hyperpigmentation, and her all-time favourite products to treat it.

The three main causes of pigmentation on the skin are acne scarring, sun exposure and hormonal fluctuations, and to eliminate their appearance on her skin, Lucy goes straight in with Kiehls’ Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Solution. It’s a super stable (and much-loved) vitamin C serum that noticeably lightens darker and discoloured spots, while brightening and evening out your entire face. Next up comes Sunday Riley’s C.E.O. Antioxidant Protect + Repair Moisturiser, another vitamin C powerhouse that doubles as a high-powered hydrator and an anti-ageing collagen booster.

You can’t forget the eye area, often one of the darkest areas of the face, so Lucy reaches for an HQ-favourite, Drunk Elephant’s C-Tango Multivitamin Eye Cream, which is formulated with five forms of brightening vitamin C. We like to keep it in the fridge and apply it in the morning for the best (and brightest) wake up call.

Why the obsession with vitamin C? Read this, and this.
