No more dark spots

Dark spots, freckles or age spots are caused by hyperpigmentation. This is when the skin becomes darker than normal leading to uneven skin tone. Hyperpigmentation, or dark spots, can be caused by acne scars, excessive sun exposure, or hormonal changes. While they’re not a serious condition, they can make the complexion look uneven or discoloured if left untreated. Here are three simple tips to help prevent hyperpigmentation:

Sun protection

Sun exposure can lead to hyperpigmentation like nothing else. So, it is always a must to protect the skin with sunscreen. It should be used before leaving the house and applied over the face every two hours for the best results.

Chemical exfoliation

Chemical exfoliation products typically use various types of gentle acids to break up dead skin cells, or the top layer of the skin. Removing this layer can help reveal healthier and more evenly toned skin beneath. Chemical peels can also help remove pigmentation caused by acne scarring or other blemishes.

Laser treatment and peels

The fastest yet riskiest way to heal your hyperpigmentation is a laser. These treatments use concentrated light energy to target the pigment itself, while others work by removing the skin layer by layer. With this method, the darkened layers of skin are burned off to reveal lighter skin underneath.

If you are suffering from hyperpigmentation and uneven skin tone. Then it’s high time you start getting it treated before you are left with scars forever. Stay tuned for more skin recommendations only on Be beautiful Pakistan.
