With the warmer weather upon us, all we can think about is leaving the refinements of our home and work to spend the day outside in the sun. Whether that is visiting the beach, or chilling by the pool. But days out in the sun can leave you high and dry with dark spots across your nose, cheeks, upper lips and forehead.
How does this happen you may ask? The dark spots that appear on your face are better known as hyperpigmentation, which is caused by excessive ultraviolet exposure. So when your skin is exposed to ultraviolent rays, it stimulates an increase of melanocytes, which are cells that create melanin. Once melanin is produced, it is sent to the skin surface to absorb UV rays to help prevent the skin from burning. Melanin is a natural colouring pigment that creates the dark spots on the skin.
But don’t be alarmed. The dark spots can be minimised with a preventative skincare and sun smart routine, that won’t stop you from enjoying a day out in the sun. Being sun smart is an effective way to reduce your risk of developing hyperpigmentation. This means investing in a wide brim hat, sunglasses, sunscreen and an umbrella for when you are at the beach or beside the pool.
As well as being sun safe, the key to preventing the appearance of the hyperpigmentation on your skin is by using skincare products that helps to interrupt the production of Melanin. Treating your skin with unique formulas that alsoinclude Niacinamide, which is known to help lighten areas of pigmentation, will keep your complexion looking fresh and revitalized.
