Dark spots, also called hyperpigmentation, are the worst nightmare of anyone who wants a flawless complexion. When your complexion is marked by spots, which can be small, large, round, or irregular, it loses its balanced and even appearance.
HOW DOES A HYPERPIGMENTATION SPOT FORM?
Hyperpigmentation spots appear after an accumulation of melanin, the pigment that gives the skin its color. Melanin is produced by specialized cells in the epidermis called melanocytes. Melanin is normally spread evenly in the skin.
When influenced by various factors, such as sun, pollution, aging or hormones, the melanocytes become overactive, melanin production is disrupted and it is deposited in uneven patches, creating pigment clusters on the skin.
HOW CAN YOU PREVENT DARK SPOTS FROM SETTLING IN?
UV rays are one of the main factors in the appearance of dark spots. The first good habit to adopt is using sun protection like our favorite brand, EltaMD, every day.
To correct dark spots, targeted treatments such as the SKIN-UNIFY INTENSIVE serum and the SKIN-UNIFY cream may be applied morning and evening to the face, neck and décolleté. Inspired by laser techniques, our SKIN-UNIFY products target all stages of dark spot formation with a powerful complex of vitamin C, liquorice extract and algae extract for even, radiant skin.
Don't forget the hands, which are also an exposed area prone to dark spots. To protect them, use gloves in both winter and summer during outdoor activities like gardening.
By following these tips and adding anti-dark spot products to your skincare routine, you should effectively reduce dark spots and visibly even out skin tone for a glowing complexion.
