Third Acid that is Beneficial for Hyperpigmentation

ReNew Skincare

Last we talked about Tranexamic Acid and Azelaic Acid. Both acids help with hyperpigmentation spots. Today I’d like to talk about the third acid called Kojic Acid which is available over the counter.

Kojic Acid is good for:

  1. Dark spots
  2. Anti-bacteria
  3. Anti-fungi

In my clinic I use it largely to help decrease dark spots.

It is a tyrosinase –decrease pigmentation production.

  1. Skin Ceuticals Discoloration Defense serum combination between Kojic acid and Tranexamic Acid.
  2. PCA skin pigment bar – good concentration of Kojic Acid.

These are two of my favorite to recommend.

  3. In our clinic we also have ReNew360 Premium Skincare Hydroquinone 6% / Kojic Acid Emulsion 4%.

How to use Kojic Acid:

Topical Lightening Agents:

  1. Kojic Acid
  2. Azelaic Acid
  3. Tranexamic Acid

I like to combine the three of them to help my patients have an even skin tone.
