Benefits of SkinCeuticals Discoloration Defense Serum:
- Discolouration & dark spot corrector
- Formulated with Tranexamic Acid, Niacinamide & Hepes

Skin discolouration is caused by the production of melanin in skin’s lowest epidermal layers, which then appears on skin’s surface as discoloration, post-acne marks and stubborn pigmentation or brown patches on the cheekbones, forehead, and upper lip.
The synergistic blend of discoloration fighting active ingredients help to reduce the appearance of skin discoloration, brighten skin and minimise reoccurring discolouration with continued use.
The serum can be used twice daily and when used in the morning it is recommended to apply a Vitamin C serum first, followed by the Discoloration Defense Serum and finally SkinCeuticals broad spectrum SPF 50+ sunscreen.

- 1.8% Tranexamic Acid
- 5% Niacinamide
- 5% Hepes
SkinCeuticals Discoloration Defense Serum is free from parabens, fragrance, silicone, gluten and hydroquinone.

“This skin brightening serum uses innovative active ingredients that work to fight discolouration for a brighter and more even-looking complexion.
The focus of my skincare regime has always been to tackle pigmentation, so this serum has become part of my daily routine and I am already starting to see the brightening effects. I am looking forward to seeing how the Tranexamic Acid works to minimise the reoccurrence of skin discoloration too!
I like to use this serum after applying SkinCeuticals C E Ferulic, I then apply SkinCeuticals Brightening UV Defense SPF 30 for high factor, broad-spectrum UV protection, whilst also fighting my stubborn pigmentation.”
