How do I get rid of pigmentation?

Fading any kind of pigmentation is something that doesn’t just happen over night unfortunately. The cells which create the pigmentation are produced in the basal layer of the skin (the deepest part) so it is a condition that is truly skin deep.

Always remember that prevention is better than cure when it comes to excess sun exposure. We can try and fade the sun spots and pigmentation on the surface layers however by using a good quality protective sunscreen. Ella Baché has a range of high performance locally researched and developed suncare.

As pigmentation is the darkest in the surface layers of the skin, include a thorough exfoliation in your skincare routine. This will compliment the use of sun protection Exfoliation will remove dead cells from the surface allowing for quicker results with the fading of age spots. Try Ella Baché’s Revitalisant or Gommage Delicat once a week.

How do I get rid of acne scarring?

Acne scarring is a condition characterised by small scar like features on the surface of the skin with perhaps a rough or uneven texture. This condition is caused from the pore being distorted and made larger to accommodate the excess oil flow produced by the sebaceous gland at the bottom of the pore. When the skin heals after an infection in the pore (which is the pimple) a scar is the result.

To help assist the skin recover from acne scarring we aim to repair and strengthen the skin. Repairing Skin Solution combines products rich in Algae Extracts and Cod Liver Oil, a great source of Vitamin A, to intensively repair the skin and reduce redness associate to acne scars.

How do I achieve an even, long lasting tan?


A build-up of dead skin and old fake tan is one key reason why a tan may look patchy on the skin. If you are someone who applies tan regularly then you must exfoliate the old tan off prior to re-applying new tan.


Moisturising maintains an even coverage tan. The biggest cause of patchiness is dryness or dehydration on the skin. Moisturise daily with a nourishing cream such as Water Source Cream to ensure an even, glowing bronzed appearance. Great SunKiss is also a fantastic product to hydrate and nourish the skin while maintaining the depth of colour in the tan.


There are a variety of fake tans that all suit different types of skin.
A cream tan such as Great Tan without Sun is great for a dry skin as it will tan and nourish the skin at the same time. A Mousse Tan is great for a normal to oily skin as this type of tan dries quickly and is more lightweight in texture. When using a cream or mousse tan always apply your tan with a Tanning Mitt to avoid streaks appearing and ensuring an even consistency A Spray Tan is great for someone who does not want to get their hands dirty and can be applied without having to use your hands.

I’m worried about premature aging and I’ve started to notice fine lines around my eyes. What should I do?

Over time, skin begins to thin; it looses elasticity and firmness, and produces less collagen. Wrinkles start to deepen and the surface of the skin increasingly becomes dry and dull.

It’s important to always use a cleanser that is specifically designed for the eye area such as Eye and Lip Cleanser. Eye and Lip Cleanser is designed to gently remove eye make-up while nourishing the dry, delicate skin around the eyes.

Ella Baché has specialised ranges and treatments such as Age Protection and Eternal to specifically address ageing skin concerns at the most advanced level.
