Regardless of age, colour or skin type, pigmented spots, sadly called " age spots ", may appear on your skin one day. No need to worry! Understand what these brown spots are (it's always better to get to know each other before judging, isn't it?) and discover simple, effective and above all-natural solutions to prevent them!
What are dark spots exactly?You probably noticed that these spots appear most often on the face, neckline and hands... Well, that's normal! They're the most exposed body areas to the sun rays.
Dark spots are the reflection of a melanin production disruption.
Over time, the skin produces too much melanin: it migrates to the surface of the skin, forming dark spots! All this because of extensive and unprotected exposure to UV rays.
Who is most affected by dark spots?Some may link the appearance of dark spots with ageing. Why? Because in the years, the accumulation of melanin leads to dark spots.
Finally, we can thank genetics: if you noticed your parents having dark spots, they will probably appear on your skin in the future.
Consult with a dermatologist, now.Do you think you have dark spots? A visit to your dermatologist is mandatory to avoid self-diagnosis! You're probably right to think it's a simple harmless pigment spot, but the doctor must confirm it's benign and help prevent it from becoming a mole or melanoma.
Pregnancy mask or dark spot?A small break to talk about the - so-called - pregnancy mask (common name for melasma). These marks may appear in different parts of the face of pregnant women. Provoked by the sun, these spots are reinforced by the hormones produced during pregnancy. However, they usually disappear after childbirth!
