What Is The Best Way To Treat My Dark Spots And Pigmentation?
Treating Dark Spots and Pigmentation
To treat your dark spots, make sure to use skin brightening products after cleansing and toning, but before your other skincare products.
For the most effective treatment, apply at the first sign of a dark spot. Ensure to continue your brightening treatment until the spot has faded completely.
For ultimate dark spot prevention, use products containing ingredients that can increase cell turnover.
Acids such as AHA, BHA, PHA, or those that can influence tyrosinase activity, such as Vitamin C and snowperk’s unique ingredient β-white™ can also work well in treating dark spots.
β-white™ is a powerful active which provides fast and effective treatment of dark spots. Also found in our NO.1 Skin Brightening Booster, β-white™ contains an encapsulated peptide – Oligopeptide-68 which is an advanced peptide in phospholipid capsule that can penetrate into the deep layers of the skin for more effective dark spot treatment.
How do I get rid of pigmentation?
What causes pigmentation?
Tyrosinase and MITF are the main actors of pigmentation in skin. Tyrosinase can modulate only one component of the pigmentation process, whereas MITF can modulate the complete pathways of pigmentation.
A leading active in the skincare industry, the Oligopeptide-68 found in β-white™ is the first of its kind to target not just Tyrosinase but halts the entire pigmentation process in the skin.
Think of an orchestra, just because one musician (Tyrosinase and other enzymes) stops, there is still music. As the rest of the orchestra is still playing. Only when the conductor (MITF) stops then so will the music.
Compared to regular pigmentation treatment, the traditional actives (such as Vitamin C, Kojic Acid, Arbutin) can only limit only few musicians. These musicians, tyrosinase and enzyme involved in active pigmentation and the forming of dark spots. These traditional actives are unable to prevent the conductor from continuing the pigmentation process.
On the contrary, β-white™ targets the conductor, which modulates the complete pathway of pigmentation, preventing dark spots from ever forming!
Think of β -White™ as stopping even the conductor themselves!
Furthermore some Skin Types are more prone to pigmentation than others. Which makes preventing dark spots more critical in the early years.
In addition to the powerful actives, snowperk boosters have a high percentage of naturally derived ingredients.
A higher natural content allows for lesser chemical reactions and allergies to form.
Gentle on skin and powerful in its results, snowperk boosters keep its intense freshness by delivering a formula that only activates when you MIX your personalised booster and personalised moisturiser together.

Ingredient Harmony for Pigmented Skin Types
Any savvy consumer looking to get rid of their dark spots need to know this.
Ingredients such as Benzoyl Peroxide, Retinoids, Hydroxy acids, Hydroquinone, Vitamin C and Peptides can react negatively if not properly layered with the correct skincare knowledge.
Peptides are commonly known for its troublesome properties.
On the contrary, β -White™ is a peptide that is stabilized in a liposome. Meaning β -White™ works harmoniously with many ingredients and does not interfere to cause unwanted reactions.
The PH of Your Skin Affects the Efficacy of Your Skincare
There is scientific evidence behind the importance of “layering ingredients”
We took a look at some studies on the active Vitamin C by Dr Sheldon Pinnell.
This means when you wash your skin with something like a glycolic acid cleanser (usually a pH of 2.5 – 3.5) it will lower the pH of your skin and help promote absorption of pure Vitamin C.
However this low PH maybe irritating to some skin types so their use should be tested carefully.
On the contrary, when wash your skin with an alkaline soap (often a pH of 9 or more), you are going to raise the pH of your skin. Even a Vitamin C serum that is a pH of 2.0 will have less absorption when placed on skin of a higher pH.
So, don’t just select products based on the benefits, you must also consider the way the ingredients react when you apply them in your skincare routine.
snowperk Skin Brightening Booster is formulated at a PH of around 5.8-7 which is close to skin’s natural pH. Plus all formulations are free from fragrance, making it safe and effective for all skin types.
Even the sensitive ones.
It is recommended to layer together with snowperk Balancing Moisturiser Gel-Cream or snowperk Revitalising Moisturiser Cream which are formulated at a pH of 5.4 – 6.6, which are quite compatible with snowperk Skin Brightening Booster. This good compatibility ensures the best result when you personalise your snowperk experience.
