I suffer from hyperpigmentation for years due to sun exposure mainly, specially in my back, derriere, knees, elbows, neck and face, I'm 3 or 4 shades darker in those areas. I was also told that I produce more melanin in some areas of my body. My question is, is there any oil I can purchase to treat this issue?

I heard castor oil does wonders, I was thinking about buying a dermaroller and then use castor oil but I'd like opinions on this topic first.

I chose oils because they are more affordable and effective in some or most of the cases.

Thank You!

Hmm, I'm not aware of any oils which treat hyperpigmentation, but the reason why some people like castor oil is because it is good at drying up acne and pulling impurities and oil out of the skin. I've never heard anything about castor oil being used to treat melasma, though.

Castor oil can be irritant, I wouldn't want to bypass the skin barrier with a Dermaroller (which in itself causes inflammation). You might find this review helpful

I've heard that lavender is good though it would have to be diluted as pure lavender is quite irritating and stings. Though why not use kojic acid along with AHA's?

And yet is it affordable for what is large surface area use?

I have used rosehip seed oil to treat both sun damage and post inflammatory hyperpigmentation with great results. In 6 months of twice daily use I've seen my pigmentation fade by 80%. You probably won't notice results until 3 months in as it works slowly and subtlely. But I am very happy with the results on my skin. It's not very expensive if you buy from a cosmetics ingredients wholesaler. Usually less than $20 for 100ml or 4Oz. Certainly economical enough for daily use over a large area and won't do any harm.

Rosehip oil is what I had recommended by a person that has studied about oils and essential oils for dark spots, hyperpigmentation on skin... only evening/night use, not during the day or in any case not when the sun may touch the skin, it needs continuous use though and obviously using sunscreen cream on the areas hyperpigmented or better no sunbathing the areas treated.
Another very useful oil is an essential oil, the lemon essential oil, it needs to be diluted in a carrier oil -almond for example. Again only use in the evening or in any case don't let the skin treated with the oil be exposed to the sun with it on. Always use sunscreen cream.
The old time natural method is actually to directly apply lemon juice, which works after a length of time but can be irritating to the skin, and again no sun while the juice is on the skin.

Hi NMNY! Could you tell us what kind of hyperpigmentation you had, and how long you had it? I'm asking because fresh marks from scrapes or zits seem to fade to a certain extent on their own over that length of time, but its the really stubborn older discoloration that some of us are more concerned with.

Also, I'm not sure, but I think there's a difference in how darker/asian/african skin responds to treatment, which is something to consider. I say that because I know that they recommend different types of peels for darker skintones which are more prone to hyperpigmentation (during the initial damage), so I'm assuming there may be a difference w/regard to the repair process as well? If anyone has any info re this issue, I'd be very interested!
