Sun spots, freckles, hyperpigmentation. These forms of skin pigmentation are common. However, they may make you feel older and insecure in your skin. When our skin is young and healthy, melanin (the stuff that gives your skin colour) is distributed evenly – so your skin tone is uniform everywhere. When the skin is damaged, the body may produce too much melanin. This results in the uneven spots you see on your skin.
There are a few types of pigmentation you may encounter. These include post acne pigmentation (from healed acne), freckles, and sun spots (caused by UV damage). If your pigmentation is caused by the sun, the obvious thing to do would be to protect your skin. Use sunscreen that protects against BOTH UV ray spectrums – UVA and UVB. Apply it even on cloudy days and if you have to, consider wearing a hat.
If you want to reduce pigmentation that’s already there on your skin, there are a few methods. First, don’t over exfoliate. This can actually damage your skin and cause more pigmentation. You would probably know laser as an effective treatment. However, it is NOT your only option. Natural treatments such as our green peel facial treatment helps renew skin cells. It treats not only the surface of the skin but stimulates skin cell renewal and boosts the skin with essential nutrients. The facial treatment is effective not only for pigmentation but scars, wrinkles, fine lines and saggy skin.
