Spotless skin: Guide to diminishing dark spots

Pubblicato: 06/05/2024 | Autore: Oriflame

Hyperpigmentation, uneven skin tone, sun spots, age spots – there are many ways to describe the dark spots on your skin. But how do you address them? Read on for a perfect skincare routine to tackle the spots.

What are dark spots

Dark spots on your face are caused by irregular melanin production in the skin. The spots range from light brown to black and have the same texture as the rest of your skin. They are painless and usually show up on sun-exposed areas of the skin.

How to reduce hyperpigmentation

The most effective way to get rid of dark spots on your face is by reducing sun exposure. Over time, extensive sun exposure will result in uneven skin tone and accelerate skin ageing. Therefore, it is crucial to use SPF – especially in sun drenched areas where it is recommended for year-round use.
Exfoliation with a product that contains BHA or AHA acids can also help improve how the skin looks and give a more even skin tone, as it promotes skin cell turnover and removes dead skin cells. Reveal the rosy glow of your skin with Optimals Even Out serum – it’s designed to target dark spots and uneven skin tone.

Skincare to the rescue

After exfoliation we recommend applying UV protection, such as Novage+ Proceuticals Day Shield SPF 50. It provides the highest level of UVA protection to shield against harmful rays and skin ageing. It also protects the skin from some of the negative effects of the environment and is intensely moisturising.


How to prevent sun spots

Avoiding sun exposure, using skincare products that correct skin tone, and exfoliating twice a week will all contribute to a more even skin tone. Invest in high quality products that will treat the concern and look after your skin.
If you live in a sunny place, apart from your SPF, also wear a hat and sunglasses when you are outside. Also, don’t underestimate sitting in an office close to the windows or a cloudy day: you can still get exposed to UV radiation. Make sure you apply Novage+ Anti-Ageing Day Cream SPF 30 before you leave the house.

How do dark spots develop

Melanin, which is a pigment found in your skin, is the body’s natural way of protecting itself against UV radiation. When exposed to sunlight, melanocytes in the lower layer of the epidermis, produce melanin and release it through branch-like cells called dendrites, to the upper layer of the skin.
Melanin absorbs the sunlight and prevents the UV radiation from reaching further into the skin. When the skin is no longer exposed to sunlight, the melanin retracts. Every time this mechanism is activated, a small trace is left behind, and over time these traces accumulate and create a spot. Additionally, this mechanism becomes less effective with time, which also adds to the accumulation of melanin in one area.
This process is highly individual and different reasons are responsible for triggering it. The most evident culprit is sun exposure. But hormonal imbalance, such as the one experienced during a pregnancy is also responsible for hyperpigmentation.
