How does treating DARK SPOTS reveal a balanced, healthy and radiant skin?


One of the most challenging to treat skin conditions is hyperpigmentation. Despite the number of treatment options, including prescription and cosmetic topical creams, radio frequency, cryosurgery and laser surgery, nothing can prevent the skin from producing excess melanin, but we can slow down melanin production.

A few FACTORS that lead to an irregular increase in melanin and pigmentation: 

  • sun damage
  • acne
  • inflammation
  • birth control
  • pregnancy
  • hormones
  • prescription drugs
  • injury

 

TRUST THE SCIENCE AND PHYSIOLOGY OF THE BODY!

Melanogenesis  - the process of melanin production is complicated. The pathway involves exposure to the sun and or other environmental stressors, oxidation of Tyrosine by the enzyme Tyrosinase, L-DOPA, L-DOPA conversion to Dopa Quinone, Melanin formation and deposition of Melanin in the dermal or epidermal layer, manifesting as pigmentation!

Let's have a little skin lesson! 

Hyperpigmentation is known as a skin condition that causes dark patches of colour in the skin. It is causes no harm, and can affect all skin tones. There are various products that can help fade patches of dark skin, and they may also have other skin benefits.

Hydroquinone has been, for many years, recommended as the most effective lightener, but there are many concerns over the safety of its long-term use. Other ingredients that have been shown to help control the melanin formation process include Kojic acid, Azelaic acid, botanical extracts, Hydroxy acids, vitamins and peptides. All have been proven somewhat helpful in inhibiting and decreasing some of the steps in the melanogenesis process, but none of them have created satisfactory and sustained results.

    So, how do dark spots reveal a balanced, healthy and radiant skin?

    After a thorough analysis of skin and lifestyle, and with your new skin routine, you will notice a significant change in the appearance of your skin every 28-35 days. People spend so much time fixated on what they see wrong that they never notice what is great about their skin. Any dullness, devitalized skin, and tired looking will be revitalized and rejuvenated as you continue your skincare routine. It takes time but you will notice how soft and supple the skin feels; how firm and toned the appearance is and that glow will make you smile. We encourage the #Selfie monthly to follow the progress of change in your beautiful skin!
