Our skin is not only the most extensive organ of our body, it is also the most multifunctional. Approximately 2 billion skin cells protect us from UV rays, pathogens, heat and cold and dehydration. This is why it is also important to take care of our skin, not just for cosmetic reasons. Particularly noteworthy is an effective protection against harmful UV rays. These UV rays also produce unsightly pigment spots. How you can protect yourself against it and how you can treat already mitigate pigment spots, I’ll tell you in this blogpost.
What are pigment spots? How can you protect yourself?
As pigment spots, are named skin discolorations, which are caused by an increased melanin production, such as e.g. freckles and age spots. Melanin is the pigment in the human body that gives the skin, hair and eyes their color. UV radiation, but also genetic disposition, hormonal influences, aging processes as well as injuries or inflammations of the skin, cause this overproduction of melanin. Hyperpigmentation by UV rays can best be prefixed by the correct sun protection. Important is the correct application of the sun cream, it should be carefully painted.
The Eucerin Sun Fluid Anti-Age SPF 50 protects you against sands and sun-induced skin damage and reduces visible signs of aging due to excessive sun exposure. Hyaluronic acid provides intensive moisture. The Sun Fluid is not comedogenic and does not grease, so it is suitable for everyday use. It penetrates the skin quickly and has a slightly dull finish.
Visibly soften pigment spots
Since I am about 18 years old I have freckles on my hand back and this really only on the back of the hands. Even some had been astonished at this. Summer sprouts, age spots and co. Occur in places that are often exposed to the sun. Particularly often with the face, arms or back of the hand like me. The active ingredient B-resorcinol contained in the new Even brighter day and night care of Eucerin, reduces the production of melanin and causes already formed pigment spots to fade. Glycyrrhetinic acid, a natural active ingredient from the sweet corn root, also supports the repair of UV-induced cell damage. Dexpanthenol stimulates the skin’s regenerative process overnight. In the morning the skin is fresh and refreshed.
Care routine for pigment spots
That was a lot of information, so I would like to briefly summarize what you can do against the development of pigment spots due to hyperpigmentation. It is important not to neglect the sun protection all year round. The sun does not only appear in the summer, but also the sun prophylaxis should not be forgotten all year round. Effective and high sun protection is provided by the Sun Fluid from Eucerin. The Even Brighter line consists of a Day Care which protects the skin from the development and reinforcement of pigment spots. Pigment spots are triggered by the UV radiation during the day and are produced during the night. The Eucerin Even Brighter Night Care system works precisely against this process by stimulating the regeneration process of the skin.
