How to avoid their appearance
Hyperpigmentation is a very common skin disorder caused by increased production of melanin, a pigment that acts as a photoprotectant, absorbing UV radiation and converting it to heat. It appears as brown spots at face, hands, shoulders and arms. It is observed in both men and women but more frequently in women skin because of hormonal changes during their life. The reasons related to age spot appearance do not only have to do with sun exposure but are also genetic, hormonal and environmental. However, overexposure to sunlight can worsen the age spot appearance.
Pregnancy and menopause are two periods of women’s life that trigger intense hormonal alterations to the feminine body and promote skin’s uneven pigmentation. Genetic disposition, acne, burns and skin inflammation by any cause can also promote age spot creation.
How to treat hyperpigmentation?
Prevention is the best cure!
Use a sunscreen with high SPF that protects your skin from melanin overproduction.
Remember to use your sunscreen all over the year.
Use antioxidants: Antioxidants can protect effectively our skin during periods that the organism is in stress and we can find them in fruits and vegetables but also in specialized dermocosmetics.
