"I've been using the pigmentation products for a month now, I'm very happy with the results, my brown spots have certainly faded, my overall skin is looking much better, and I'm looking forward to even greater results as I continue on using this fabulous skin care regime. I love the way my skin feels after each use and my makeup glides on to give a nice dewy effect which I haven't been able to achieve for some time. I'm feeling more confident in being able to reduce my makeup usage overall."
"Hi, my name is Kelly and I have suffered with problematic skin for most of my life. I had terrible acne and chicken pocks as a child that resulted in scarring. Then along came the fine lines and wrinkles. In just under two weeks, I have seen a massive change! The regime is incredibly easy to follow, you don’t need much of it and it is an Australian product! I am finally proud of my skin and cannot wait to see what my face looks like in a month! I am so grateful! Thank you Esk!"
"I would just like to say how impressed I am with ESK skin care.
I turn the big 60 this year and have be looking for a skin care for mature skin. I was watching Sunrise and Ginni came on talking about ESK. So I thought I would give it ago and I loved the fact that it was made in Australia. I love the way the cleanser made my skin feel so clean and light and the way the products sunk straight into my skin. Which I have been looking for forever. Most products just sit on top of my skin which is frustrating and can be very expensive.
My skin looks smoother and plumper. Finally something that works 😊 Thanks ESK"
"My tailored ESK skincare set has exceeded all my expectations. I actually didn’t realise how dull and badly pigmented my skin was until seeing my own 4 weeks progress and honestly being in complete shock of the difference it has made!
I feel so much more confident now to let my natural skin be on show and not having to hide it behind a face full of makeup. I will 100% continue to use this regime as if it can make this difference in just one month imagine what the long term results can be.
Would highly recommend them to anyone that is facing their own skincare issues."
"So I've been using ESK Skincare’s Hydroxy Overnight Mask a couple of nights a week for a few weeks now and I am definitely impressed. It leaves my face glowing in the morning and doesn’t let it dry at all. Super hydrating mask! I've also used it to spot treat any breakout, dry and chapped skin! Don't you just love a product that not only works, but oh so versatile too!!!"
"My name is Marcia and at age 51 my skin is definitely on the mature side as well as being dry. I was hoping to get results to reduce pigmentation and fine lines as well as to increase the general hydration of my skin. Ive been using ESK for 1 month. My favorite product is the Reverse "C" Serum. I just love how my skin feels after it absorbs into it. I am absolutely thrilled with the way my skin is feeling so hydrated and I can really see a difference with the pigmentation. Even the skin on my neck feels soft all day long and I'm feeling confident that with continued use my results will continue to improve. Yes I would recommend E.S.K and infact, after years of breakouts and acne with no real improvement from many products, my daughter is going to try the Acne Kit range. I can't wait to see the results for her."
"I have been using E.S.K now for 4 months and the difference I have seen and felt is beyond amazing. Being from the health care industry myself I know the importance of evidence based and scientifically tested products. I have searched for years to find a skin care range that is both gentle and safe but also effective, my skin has never been clearer. My pigmentation and skin tone are now even and I feel like I have a healthy glow. I am now happy to go without makeup and I can’t recommend E.S.K products more highly. Thank you."
"I had blotchy skin tone and at aged 50 wrinkles appearing. I have been using ESK for a year now and it is a top quality facial skincare product. My skin tone is much more even and the redness is gone. Both photos are taken without any makeup. I use the Pigmented/Age Spot Kit on my skin. Thank you Esk for developing this skincare range."
"I have really enjoyed using ESK products. Not only I learnt more about my skin, but also developed an actual skincare routine which is definitely life changing. My life is extra busy I'm a new mum to 10 months old boy, so i find it hard to keep up with my self care, yet ESK products made it super easy. They are specially selected for my skin type, with labels such as AM and PM so I don't spend too much time thinking which product to put when.
The last few weeks have been very stressful, yet with the help of ESK my skin became flawless! It's smoother and brighter now, and despite a pimple here and there, I have avoided huge breakouts which usually be an impact of everyday life stresses. Absolutely in love, and highly recommend. These aren't just every day influencer promoted products, these are evidence based products, that actually work."
"I feel pigmentation is less. My skin feels good & hoping with longer use, maybe, just maybe, my age spots will lighten. Thank you Ginni, Daniel & staff."
"I’ve been using the pigmented skin kit for a month and have noticed that my skin is now smooth and soft, whereas before it was rough and patchy. Areas of pigmentation are lighter and less apparent. I’ve found the product to be pleasant to use and I love the smell of the cleanser. My travel kit is also lasting a lot longer than I expected!"
" I have really sensitive skin, oily in places and dry in others. I also have rosacea and too many wrinkles for my age as I spent many years working outdoors in all weathers without taking care of my skin. I also refuse to use any unethical products, so I guess I'm what you could call a difficult customer! The first time I used no. 2b I said 'wow' . It felt gorgeous going on, it was absorbed perfectly and I didn't see any reaction nor redness. My skin felt so smooth afterwards, and felt great all day. I tried no. 5 that night and it felt right, a little richer and heavier but still absorbed beautifully. And it smells lovely! Over the past month I've used the products daily and my skin looks and feels so much better, softer, more elastic and definitely younger."
"I’ve struggle with pigmentation problems since my pregnancy and maybe age...so I started using esk skincare and I am already noticing a huge change in my skin (the very first photo I took was so bad that I didn’t even post it and I actually wanted to cry) they have been so great with helping me and I highly recommend their products!"
"I’m very impressed with my new skincare regime.ESK recommended a skincare pack for me after I answered a few questions. 1 week after receiving my skincare I had a friendly phone call to make sure l was happy with everything. I have skin pigmentation and feel that my skin now has more of an even tone and a healthy glow. My skin feels soft and smooth. There are more days now l can go without makeup. Thankyou for your recommendation."
"So i’ve been using ESK for about 6 weeks now and i’m super happy with the results. Photo (no filter on either) on the left is before incase it’s not obvious. I have the pigmentation kit and it has made my skin feel amazing. I think there’s a difference in appearance as well. I love the ritual of putting on the different steps morning and night and I will continue using the kit now as it’s part of my daily ritual."
It is still a work in progress but I am so relieved to finally see results. I never had any pigmentation issues until about two years ago. I have tried so many different products and treatments which has just made my pigmentation worse. I cannot be happier as ESK has given back my confidence and I am able to face the world again without makeup!
"Can you turn back the years? Perhaps not but it appears that you can minimise the damage that many of them caused. I have the Mature Pigmented Kit and I love it. These two photos were taken at the same time in the morning bot with no products on and a month apart. I think that my skin looks brighter, smoother, healthier and thankfully younger."
How to improve pigmentation
Pigmentation spots can make your skin look more aged. But before you look for pigmentation skincare online, you need to understand why it happens in the first place.
Pigment is made by specialized skin cells called melanocytes. The number of melanocytes in your skin actually decreases by 8% to 20% per decade after age 30! And yet areas of mottled, irregular pigmentation are common in sun damaged skin in all races. Like patches of melasma that are common in women, especially when exposed to higher levels of oestrogen, the exact cause is still unknown! When it comes to tackling pigmentation, you need to be patient!
There are 4 pathways that we target to improve pigmentation. The first is antioxidants such as Ascorbic acid AKA Vitamin C, which neutralises the signal created by UV exposure, to create melanin. Secondly, Niacinamide AKA Vitamin B3 helps stop the transfer of melanin to the superficial skin cells from the melanocytes in the deeper levels. Alpha Hydroxy Acids or AHAs not only help with skin cell turnover and breaking up melanin clumps but also directly suppress melanin formation in the skin. Retinal AKA Vitamin A blocks the enzyme tyrosinase, the enzyme in the skin which is critical for the creation of melanin in the first place. It also encourages skin cell turnover and, breaking up melanin clumps. And finally, tyrosinase can be targeted directly. Hydroquinone can be prescribed by your doctor but 4-n-butylresorcinol is more gentle, can safely be used long term, is available in your skincare and it is at least as (if not more) effective to shut down melanin production altogether.

What is the best product for skin pigmentation?
There are several paths (most people agree that number is 4) that can be targeted for reducing hyperpigmentation. And while best results come from using a combination of ingredients which target 3 or 4 paths, the single most effective path is inhibition of tyrosinase (a key enzyme required for making pigment in the skin). And the ingredient which does that best is Hydroquinone. But due to concerns around risks of long term use (more than 3 months) and skin irritation, it is increasingly being banned from use. The search for a replacement is still ongoing. The current contender for that role is 4-n-butylresorcinol, which is not only very effective, but also well tolerated. The other paths that can be targeted are through anti-oxidants (Vitamin C - Ascorbic Acid), reduction in the transfer of pigment in the skin (Vitamin B3 - Niacinamide) and increased skin cell turnover to flush pigment from the skin (Vitamin A - Retinal). And because an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, use of a broadspectrum sunscreen should be top of the list of products.
