Tips To Win Against Spots

Flawless, soft and beautiful looking skin is what all of us desire to have. However, pigmentation, sun spots and freckles are a few things that can ruin your skin’s beauty.

Causes of Pigmentation: One of the major reasons for pigmentation is prolonged exposure to the sun. When melanin is created in surplus it results in dark patches on the skin. Exposure to the sun further increase these dark patches. Pigmentation also occurs when the body undergoes certain hormonal changes. Hormonal changes generally occur during pregnancy, menopause and when taking certain medications like oral contraceptive pills. Besides these, if you are injured it leads to swelling and soreness which accelerates melanin production and causes spots and patches on skin.

Ways to Deal with Pigmentation: You can utilize some excellent and harmless lightening agents such as Vitamin C and Retin A. One of the best parts about skin products containing these agents is that they have excellent exfoliating properties. Utilizing these agents regularly helps exfoliate dead cells and accelerates growth of new skin which minimizes pigmentation spots to a large extent. Skin peels prepared from natural acids that are a part of certain plant and fruit sources, are great for lessening pigmentation. Most commonly used skin peels include alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) peels, Trichloracetic acid (TCA) peels and Beta-hydroxy peels (BHA).

How to keep pigmentation at bay?

  • Keep away from excessive sunlight particularly during peak hours when the sun is right above your head, which means avoid going out between 11am-4pm.
  • Apply a good sunscreen with high SPF before going out and also make sure you apply it after every three to four hours.
  • Nutritional supplements of Vitamin C and anti-oxidants are a few important things you must take regularly to keep pigmentation at bay.
  • Acne breakouts can leave long-lasting dark spots on your skin. Keep breakouts to the minimum. In order to ensure that your acne breakouts heal faster and avoid spots on your skin, it is vital to use an antibacterial bar soap when washing your face.
  • Stay hydrated by consuming a good amount of water, the recommended amount is 7 to 8 glasses per day. Skin that is left dehydrated is vulnerable to hyper-pigmentation.
  • Steer clear of color cosmetics and fragrances like lavender. Such products can soak up UV rays and result in hyper-pigmentation.
  • Quit smoking which is largely responsible for freckles and dark spots on your face.
  • Lastly, follow a healthy lifestyle by incorporating exercise, healthy diet and getting sufficient sleep to improve your chances of having gorgeous looking skin.
