Take notes as four experts break down their must-haves for correcting uneven skin tone.

I know, I know: if you hear the h-word (that being ‘hyperpigmentation’) one more time, you’re going to seriously flip. And for good reason. Black women are real suffers of the condition, but not all products actually solve the problem.

Just walk into any drugstore and you’ll see a myriad of creams and serums that claim to do the job, but in reality they fall flat. But there’s good news—curing hyperpigmentation is a matter of finding the right products for you.

That’s why we asked tops dermatologists to give us their favorite picks for getting rid of those pesky darker areas. So take notes, remember to wear sunblock during the day, and of course, before starting any treatment, consult with your regular derm first.

CeraVe Facial Moisturizing Lotion AM with SPF 30

“Sunscreen SPF 30 or higher is the most important thing in a skin care regimen as it will help to prevent further hyperpigmentation caused by exposure to the sun’s ultraviolet rays. CeraVe is one of my favorites because it’s non-comedogenic (which basically means it won’t clog pores), it’s accessibly priced and readily available in most stores.” –Yolanda Lenzy, M.D.
