Vitamin C, when used topically, has the ability to break down hyperpigmentation from the top layers of the skin. This happens because Vitamin C inhibits the production of the enzyme tyrosinase. Tyrosinase production is the first step in melanin production in the melanocytes. For the layperson, all you have to know is that Vitamin C is a topical melanin buster.
In addition to using Vitamin C, strict adherence to a sun protection regimen is necessary. Using a Vitamin C treatment without using an SPF is a waste of your hard-earned dollars. Over the years, we have road tested several vitamin C products, specifically with the end purpose of “lightening” hyperpigmented layers of skin.
