ALL ABOUT DARK SPOTS
Dark spots occur when there is an excessive production of melanin, the pigment that gives your skin its natural colour.
Sun exposure, hormonal fluctuations and / or the natural ageing of the skin can result in the appearance of dark spots or a dull complexion.
ALL THE ANSWERS TO YOUR QUESTIONS
Dark spots caused by the sun, called actinic lentigo, usually appear on areas frequently exposed to sunlight, such as the face, cleavage, shoulders and hands. They often appear after sunburn or repeated sun exposure overtime.
- I have dark spots on my face that appear after sun exposure. What should I do?
One of the most common causes of pigmentation spots is sun exposure. Exposure to the sun makes new dark spots appear and darkens existing dark spots. It's therefore really important to wear a protective hat and SPF 50 sun cream tolimit your sun exposure. It is also recommended to apply a non-photosensitising anti-dark spot product under your sun cream as a preventative measure.
- If I apply an anti-dark spot cream under my sun cream, will I tan less?
Anti-dark spot creams regulate the overproduction of melanin in the skin. Tanning is a regular and normal overproduction of melanin. An anti-dark spot product targets overproduction but does not limit your ability to tan. The product will infact help to regulate the production of melanin promoting a long-lasting and even tan.
- Are anti-dark spot creams photosensitising?
Some anti-dark spot creams can photosensitise the skin. For example, products containing vitamin C should not be used in association with sun exposure. In order to prevent the appearance of dark spots, it is important to use a skincare product with a non-photosensitising formula if you will be applying it before sun exposure.
- Is an SPF 50 sun cream enough to prevent dark spots?
In order to avoid darkening existing dark spots on the skin, it is essential to apply an SPF 50 sun cream before sun exposure and to reapply every two hours. You should also protect exposed areas of skin with clothing and avoid sun exposure between noon and 4pm. Throughout the year, protect your skin with a moderate protection (SPF 20) if you live in a region where the sun is not too strong. Apply a non-photosensitising, anti-dark spot product before you apply your sun cream to reinforce its anti-dark spot action.
- If I apply an anti-dark spot cream to my tanned skin, will it ruin my tan?
Anti-dark spot creams do not limit your ability to tan. On the contrary, the product's action regulates the production of melanin for a lasting, even tan. To make your tan last longer, remember to intensely moisturise your skin after sun exposure.
- Can I use self-tanning lotion if my skin is prone to dark spots?
Applying self-tanning lotion to skin prone to dark spots is not advised; this is because self-tanning lotion can accentuate their shade and make them more visible.
Acne spots are a type of hyperpigmentation caused by inflammation.
- I had acne in my teenage years and my spots left marks on my face, what should I do?
It is possible that a build up of melanin (the pigment responsible for the coloring of the skin) has formed during the healing of acne spots. The scar then appears browner than the rest of the skin. This overproduction of melanin may be due to over exposure to the sun or inflammation. The best solution for this skin type is to apply a daily dark spot treatment with a fluid texture followed by sun protection.
- I do not understand the difference between acne dark spots and acne scars. Can both be reduced with an anti-dark spot treatment?
Dark spots and acne scars are different kinds of imperfections. Acne spots are a type of hyperpigmentation due to inflammation and can be treated with an anti-dark spot routine. Acne scars however, are deep, colorless marks that cannot be treated with anti-dark spot products.
Dark spots caused by pregnancy, called melasma or, more commonly, "Pregnancy Mask", generally appear on the face like a mask. The pigmented area spreads in a symmetrical way from the forehead to the cheeks, and appears in women experiencing hormonal changes such as pregnancy.
- I have pregnancy mask. What should I do?
Pregnancy mask can disappear after giving birth, once your hormone levels return to normal. However, it can reappear when your skin is exposed to the sun and become a permanent feature on your face. To restore your skin's radiance and even skintone, adopt a natural, paraben-free anti-dark spot beauty routine and apply sun protection.
- How can I avoid getting pregnancy mask?
To avoid getting pregnancy mask, it is important to remain extremely vigilant throughout your pregnancy and the months following birth. Protect your skin from the sun with a high factor SPF cream and use an anti-dark spot treatment. A woman with dark hair may be more prone to dark spots than a fair-haired woman, but, contrary to popular belief, the latter can also develop pregnancy mask.
- I gave birth several weeks ago. Am I still at risk of getting pregnancy mask?
Because of the high hormone levels in the body and skin, pregnancy mask can still appear several months after birth. Breastfeeding can also increase the risk of getting pregnancy mask. The use of sun protection for any amount of sun exposure is essential. The use of anti-dark spot products to treat existing dark spots and prevent the appearance of new ones is also recommended.
- I am taking birth control pills. Will this cause more dark spots?
The influence of hormones can cause dark spots to appear on the skin. The use of sun protection for any amount of sun exposure is essential. It is also important to incorporate sunscreen into an anti-dark spot routine to treat existing dark spots and prevent the appearance of new ones.
Age spots, called lentigo senilis, can often appear as the skin ages beyond forty years old.
- As the years go by, I notice that dark spots are appearing on my face. What should I do?
Cutaneous ageing is one of the causes for the appearance of pigment spots on the skin's surface. The use of anti-dark spots treatments helps regulate the presence of melanin, the skin's pigment, in order to reduce the sizes of pigment spots and diminish their brown color. It is indispensable to protect your skin from the sun's rays using an SPF 50 sun protection in case of direct exposure and SPF 20 all year round. You may also apply a non-photosensitising anti-dark spot care product before applying your sun cream to prevent their appearance.
- I have dark spots on my hands. What should I do?
It is said that the hands betray our age. Although the hands are often exposed to the sun and are prone to cutaneous ageing, they are generally overlooked in skincare routines despite dark spots appearing there. The use of anti-dark spot treatments helps regulate the presence of melanin, the skin's pigment, in order to reduce pigmentation spots and diminish their brown color. It is also important to protect your skin from the sun's rays using SPF 50 sun protection when directly exposed to the sun and SPF 20 daily if you live in an area where the sun is not so strong.
- I have dark spots on my décolleté. What should I do?
The use of anti-dark spot skincare products should not stop at the jawline. The skin of the neck and décolleté, prone to cutaneous ageing, is often exposed to the sun. Anti dark spot products help to regulate the presence of melanin, the skin's pigment, in order to reduce the appearance of pigmentation spots and diminish their brown colour. It's also important to protect your skin from the sun's rays using SPF 50 sun protection when directly exposed to sunlight and SPF 20 daily if you live in an area where the sun is not so strong.
