I’m so excited to share this bye bye hyperpigmentation skincare routine because I have finally found products that work amazingly for fading acne scars, post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, and mild melasma.
I typically follow this specific routine at night. For me, it works better because I can layer heavy moisturizing products on to lock in the Vitamin C serum and moisturize my skin while I’m sleeping.

The Bye Bye Hyperpigmentation Skincare Routine
Step 1: Cleanse face with ENATURE Moringa Cleansing Balm to remove makeup, dirt, and sunscreen after a long day
I start off with an oil-based cleanser as step one of my double cleanse to break down makeup. Cleansing balms are my favorite type but cleansing oils work just as well! Even if I am not wearing makeup that particular day, oil-based cleansers are still my go-to for removing dirt and sunscreen after a long day.
Step 2: Second-cleanse with NEOGEN Green Tea Foaming Cleanser to actually clean my skin
For the second phase of cleansing, I go in with a foaming cleanser. For me, most foaming cleansers leave my skin feeling stripped and dry, but this cleanser is the opposite! My skin feels clean yet not “squeaky clean”.
You can see my double-cleanse steps in action on my Evening Skincare Routine post.
Step 3: Balance pH and hydrate skin with Dear Klairs Supple Preparation Toner
The key ingredient in this toner is hyaluronic acid. HA is amazing for keeping skin plump and hydrated because of its ability to retain moisture. It works well on both dry and oily skin!
The Supple Preparation toner has a mix of 6 essential oils: Lavender Oil, Eucalyptus Oil, Geranium Oil, Lemon Peel Oil, Orange Peel Oil, and Ylang-ylang Oil. If you have sensitive skin, avoid essential oils, or prefer a lighter version of this toner try the Dear Klairs Supple Preparation Unscented Toner.
No frills here! HOLY GRAIL Vitamin C serum. This formula is the best I’ve tried so far. When traditional Vitamin C serums have an unstable and light-sensitive formulation, the Klairs Freshly Juiced Vitamin Drop has a hyper-stabilized formula. It has a silky, almost oil-like feel with no citrus smell. I love this formula because I feel I don’t have to be as cautious with it as I do with other Vitamin C serums.
Step 5: Boost the Vitamin C efficiency with the Dear Klairs Freshly Juiced Vitamin E Mask
Something magical happens when you combine Vitamin C with Vitamin E. I started researching it AFTER the combo started working wonders on my skin and it seems like others and enjoying the benefits of this combo of vitamins as well! This mask starts out as a solid, with a marshmallow or “memory-foam” texture but turns into an essence after being rubbed into the skin.
Step 6: Seal in moisture with Etude House Moistfull Collagen Sleeping Pack to wake up with supple and plump skin!
This step is optional because the Vitamin E mask is technically an overnight “sleeping” mask. But, if you want a little extra moisture while you sleep, I highly recommend the Collagen Sleeping Pack from Etude House. Collagen does wonders for keeping the skin youthful. This collagen sleeping pack sinks into your skin to keep dryness away for the night!
