- To prevent: Apply sunblock every two hours. "Remember that sunblock is inactive after two to three hours," says Tina. "Also, another great way [to prevent damage] is to carry mineral makeup that has a SPF in it. Apply on your face and neck, and don't forget your chest," she adds.
- If you already have hyperpigmentation: There are a lot of ways to fade and minimize pre-existing hyperpigmentation. Tina advises that "if you're not pregnant, I'd suggest a treatment cream that has hydroquinone and retinol in it. Once the discoloration breaks down, switch to products that are natural so you can maintain smooth skin without chemical concerns." She recommends Pigment Relief from Ayur Medic or White Lightening by IS Clinical. Tina also suggests photo facials every six weeks for maintenance.
