Miracle Makeup That Stops Hyperpigmentation Before It Starts

Covering spots takes the power of a good concealer; getting rid of them needs the aid of a powerful treatment. Skip those two steps and use one of these proactive products, all of which are designed to prevent hyperpigmentation from popping up in the first place.


1/9

Equitance Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 36 ($30)

The name of this product really doesn’t do it justice. Sure, it’s a sunscreen, but it’s also one of the best primers we’ve ever used. It makes skin look perfectly prepped, dries fast and still leaves behind the sheerest amount of hydration. Another glowing recommendation: Liv Tyler relies on the line to keep her porcelain complexion. 


2/9

Colorescience Even Up Clinical Pigment Perfector SPF 50 ($120)

This major multitasker evens out and brightens skin tone while concealing (and even defending against) dark spots as soon as you apply it. Over time, the patent-pending UV complex, Lumira, targets the pathways that lead to all the steps that create pigmentation, including inflammation


3/9

Jane Iredale PurePressed Base Mineral Foundation ($42)

These super pretty pressed minerals are getting a revamp this January. Not only will they now include more shades so you can always get your color match right, but they also have a powerful SPF cocktail, skin-defending antioxidants and the ability to soothe sensitive skin and conceal redness. 


4/9

Dr. JART+ Premium Beauty Balm ($39)

Suitable for even the most sensitive skin types, this one-step BB cream is infused with antioxidants, peptides, skin-brightening arbutin and an equally impressive SPF 45. 


5/9

Cosmedicine Medi-Matte Tinted ($65)

Powered by sun damage–defender vitamin C and broad-spectrum UVA and UVB rays, this tinted matte moisturizer tackles age spots and ups the skin’s ability to discourage melanin production and deposits. 


6/9

La Roche-Posay PigmentClar Eyes ($43)

This under-eye treatment doesn't have SPF, but it’s pretty much the hardest-working dark circle eye cream out there—and one that wears perfectly under or over makeup to boot. It contains phe-resorcinol (known for its targeted action on melanin), caffeine and light-reflective pigments to brighten up the under-eye area.


7/9

Rodial Super Acids X-treme SPF30 Dark-Spot Sun Filter ($56)

It’s hard to find a sunscreen, anti-aging treatment and instant skin perfecter in one bottle, but this hardworking sunscreen-moisturizer does it all in one step. It’s incredibly lightweight, but has a long list of benefits, including its ability to reduce dark spots, treat uneven skin tone and help prevent further damage. 


8/9

Supergoop! Daily Correct CC Cream ($32)

Touted as skin care and foundation in one, this 100-percent mineral UV protector supplies skin with the most natural-looking coverage as it protects against photo-aging, discoloration and blotchiness. 


9/9

Elizabeth Arden Skin Illuminating Night Capsules ($84)

Think of these apply-at-bedtime, break-open capsules as nighttime insurance from all the aggressors of the day. They work to prevent and attack spots by delivering skin with a clinically proven blend of vitamin C and niacinimide; botanical brighteners like licorice round out the mix to impart radiance.
