To even skin tone and reduce hyperpigmentation, NIA24 uses patented Pro-Niacin® and tyrosinase inhibitors (Vitamin C and Hexylresorcinol) to decelerate total pigment production as well as even the distribution of pigment. This promotes brighter skin tone, reduces patches of excess pigment and improves overall clarity. This concentrated, lightweight serum penetrates skin to visibly diminish the appearance of dark spots and overall discoloration for a significant improvement in skin brightness, clarity and tone.
- 5% Pro-Niacin® improves texture, tone and hyperpigmentation by normalizing pigment content, promoting healthy skin cells and strengthening the skin barrier.
- Vitamin C normalizes pigment production while stimulating collagen and providing antioxidant protection.
- Willowbark smoothes skin texture by accelerating cell turnover to shed pigmented cells.
- Hexylresorcinol skin brightener inhibits tyrosinase to reduce pigment production.
- Betaine derived from sugar beet, softens and smoothes, improving hydration and water retention.

The Rapid Depigmentation Serum and Skin Strengthening Complex were the first two NIA24 products I purchased over two years ago after doing an exaustive internet search for the "best" products on the market for melasma.
I am pleased to report that within six months the discoloration on my jaw bones completely disappeared, and the really dark melasma on my neck is sooooo considerably lighter that I no longer feel self-consicous about it. I am hopeful that within the not-too-distant future the remaining light discoloration will be gone, too.
I have gradually integrated *all* of the NIA24 products into my daily skin routine, and never cease to be amazed at how soft, smooth, and clear my skin is now. I am constantly receiving compliments on my complexion, and people are surprised to learn my age as my skin certainly doesn't give it away!
In case you're interested to know, I use the Skin Strengthening Complex along with the Rapid Exfoliating Serum in the morning, and the Intensive Recovery Complex with the Rapid Depigmentation Serum at night.
I also use the Eye Repair Complex both am and pm, and am very pleased with its results, too. I keep a tube of the Physical Cleansing Scrub in the shower, and use the Gentle Cleansing Cream at my sink. Of NIA24's two facial sunscreens, I prefer the UVA/UVB protection without the zinc.
Oh, yes ... love, love, love the Sun Damage Repair for Decolletage and Hands which has made a noticeable difference with the *spots* on the back of my hands.
I strongly encourage anyone who has made it all the way through this review ... lol ... to visit the NIA24 website to learn the science behind this wonderful skincare line. It is very impressive.
PS: My daughter started using the NIA24 line four months ago, and is so pleased that her "pregnancy mask" has all but disappeared. She called this morning to tell me she no longer needed mineral make-up to cover-up a problem that no longer exists for her. :-)

This is not really a serum but more like a light, thin lotion and has a pleasant fragrance. I use this every morning and am pleased with the results. I got this after deciding to discontinue using hydroquinone to stop treating melasma and use it in conjunction with retin-a .1%. I didn't have unrealistic results and know that it will take a long time to get the spots to fade. That being said, my spots are fading very slowly but they are definitely fading. My husband also said my skin is glowing and my fine lines are plumped and minimized. Since I have oily skin, I have to wait a little longer to apply my sunscreen and makeup. I love this product and wish it weren't so darn expensive!
Use in the morning and at night. Apply 1-2 pumps to cleansed face. Avoid eye area. Follow with Skin Strengthening Complex or Intensive Recovery Complex.
