Anti-dark spot treatment
Dark spots on the face, or hyperpigmentation, occur when certain areas of the skin produce more melanin than usual. Hyperpigmentation usually begins to appear as a result of exposure to the sun, especially if sun creams have not been used. They also have a hormonal component as both oestrogen and progesterone can increase the level of melanin. We must not overlook the fact that there are different types of dark spots and different treatments to combat them.
How to apply
DAY – Brightens and moisturises
Apply a few drops of Vitamin C Serum daily on to cleansed skin, preferably before applying sun protection in the morning. It boosts the radiance and even tone of your face and moisturises the dermis for long-lasting hydration. Use after your favourite facial moisturiser such as the Collagen Cream.
NIGHT – Regenerates and nourishes
Apply the Glycolic Serum to clean, dry skin. It is an intensive shock treatment that helps to eliminate dark spots on the skin. We must also add that this product tolerates all dermises without causing irritation.
Use a moisturising and nourishing cream afterwards to act while you sleep, such as the Hyaluronic Acid Cream.
Facial anti-dark spot treatment
If the skin on your face is showing dark spots, you will need to adapt your skincare creams to this new condition. Although summer is when we are most careful, using sun cream is essential all year round.
To alleviate the hyperpigmentation that appears due to hormonal changes and excessive sun exposure, apply a cream or serum containing a depigmenting active ingredient every day.
Your night cream should also be more nourishing and contain a higher concentration of active ingredients.
Anti-dark spot cosmetics products
We recommend products containing vitamin C for its antioxidant power that helps prevent free radicals from causing oxidative damage to the skin, which can lead to wrinkles and dull skin, as well as dark spots, as it also inhibits the processes that produce melanin in the skin, so it can help prevent and reduce hyperpigmentation.
Gentle chemical exfoliants are key to removing dead skin cells in the top layer of skin. Removing this layer can help reveal a healthier, more even skin tone and reduce dark spots.
Anti-dark spot creams may include vitamin C, alpha hydroxy acids (glycolic, lactic, malic and citric AHAs), niacinamide or kojic acid. Some even contain plant extracts. In short, active ingredients that act on all layers of our skin and work from the inside.
Depigmenting creams help to minimise or eliminate the dark spots that appear on the skin. They are formulated with components that have the ability to reduce melanin synthesis in the affected areas while promoting hydration and cell regeneration of the skin barrier.
