Five Beauty Essentials To Help Post-Sun Skin Pigmentation

Five Beauty Essentials To Help Post-Sun Skin Pigmentation

With the summer coming to an end, it's time to get back to basics with our skincare routines.

Although it's not the most fun topic to consider, while out making the most of the summer sunshine, it's possible we may have overlooked how the sun could have impacted our skin.

We all know about the importance of wearing SPF but sometimes our skincare routine can fall by the wayside while on holidays, particularly if you're more focused on spending time in the water than reapplying sun cream.

But fear not, as we're here to help with a list of skin-loving products to help improve the effects of skin pigmentation caused by sun exposure.


First up we have Skin-Unify Intensive Serum from Filorga which contains three key ingredients to help minimise the visibility of pigmentation - Vitamin C, Glabridin and Algae Extract.

This product is great for helping to even out the skin tone and works well to reduce redness in the skin and boost radiance, making it ideal for those of us who have lapped up the rays in recent weeks.

Estee Lauder

When it comes to skincare, Estee Lauder has been a leading beauty brand in the space for decades and for good reason.

Their iconic Enlighten Dark Spot Correcting Night Serum does exactly what it says on the bottle and helps to reduce the appearance of dark spots and pigmentation.

So this product is great for someone with acne-prone skin as well as those who may have lingering pigmentation issues.

The Inkey List

A newer brand on the block, The Inkey List has gathered a lot of recognition on social media, particularly due to the very reasonable price point of their products.

The Inkey List Vitamin C and EGF Serum is another great option for someone looking to achieve healthy-looking skin, particularly if they are on a tighter budget.

The serum contains Vitamin C which works on the surface to brighten and even the completion while Epidermal Growth Factor (EGF) stimulates collage and elastin production deep within the skin.


If you're looking to reduce the appearance of skin pigmentation with a foundation, a great option is Even Better Makeup from beauty and skincare heavyweight Clinique.

A broad spectrum foundation with SPF 15, this product helps to reduce the appearance of pigmentation and redness to give the skin a natural-looking glow without appearing cakey.

This oil-free formula gives full coverage and helps to even out the skin tone over time.

Jo Browne

A great option from an Irish brand when it comes to repairing sun damage to the skin is this Hydrate & Heal Serum from Jo Browne.

This serum contains silicon from bamboo which helps boost collagen, Elderberry extract which has anti-aging effects and vitamins, omega fatty acids and Camilla oil, which help to nourish and hydrate the skin.
