I am looking to purchase Ellagic Acid as l understand it is safer than using hydroquinone for treating hyper-pigmentation. I have a really bad case of sun burn on my legs, hands, neck and face from ocean racing. Any advise how to use Ellagic Acid and if it would need my need as l intend to use it all over my body.

If you can wait, a super soothing winter cream that will come out in December will definitely help you with this problem.

Thanks Hannah. However, l am not sure how a soothing cream can help with hyper-pigmentation. I am back from sailing but now have a body that is over-tanned from the sun damage and l am looking to make a diy cream that would gradually restore my skin tone ( even it out)

For this (fix stress to the skin) you will have to go for UV repair cream.

The only two Korean studies an Ellagic Acid showed it's effect on wrinkles and some UV protection, but nothing on pigmentation. How bad is your skin pigmented?

Hi Alestasa, it is bad. Partly my fault for not always wearing sunblock. 3 shades darker between my face and neck, same with exposed skin from knee to foot compared to upper thigh and my shoulder to hand compared with upper torso.

Then maybe it's not pigmentation but just a sun tan? If this is the case, then Hannah's suggestion of using UV repair cream would be the best approach. If, however, you indeed have bunch of pigment spots, the fastest way to treat those would probably be glycoalkaloids.

Have you seen a doctor? Some vitamin deficiencies cause hyperpigmentation.

Unless you know otherwise, it seems like a suntan which should fade with time or you can do exfoliation to speed it up... i dont think you would need lighteners to remove a suntan unless you want to lighten your skin more than your natural skin color....
