Hyperpigmentation and the Dreaded ‘Age Spots’
Hyperpigmentation or brown spots on the skin, often referred to as ‘age spots’ are often considered to be more ageing than fine lines and wrinkles.
To ensure we prevent an uneven complexion where hyperpigmentation surfaces, wearing a sunscreen on a daily basis is crucial. However, if you already have some brown spots or an uneven skin tone, there are certain products that can help to fade spots away. Because we all desire an even-toned and glowing complexion!
Post-Summer Skin TLC
As the summer sadly draws to a close and we start preparing for cooler months ahead. Now is a good time to give your skin some post-summer TLC.
Summer often gives us that feel good factor. Bronzed, glowing skin and relaxed days. As we say goodbye to it, we can often be left with skin that feels dry, patchy and in need of some extra care.
Time to focus on some gentle but effective exfoliating treatments, to slough away dry patches and boost cell turnover. Target hyperpigmentation or patches of uneven skin tone with effective ingredients. Boost hydration levels and increase the glow!
Today is the start of a blog series focusing on products that treat hyperpigmentation. Age spots, brown spots, uneven-skin-tone and products you can use to tackle it.
The Best Anti-Pigmentation Sunscreens to Prevent and Treat Hyperpigmentation
A high quality sunscreen that is broad spectrum UVA/UVB is essential for daily protection against damage. Add into that formula some powerful antioxidants and it ramps up the protection even more. Our number one favourite sunscreen at Treat the Skin HQ is NCN I’M COVERED. A physical sunscreen. SPF 32.
NCN I’M COVERED Physical Sunscreen SPF 32 – Prevent Hyperpigmentation
An antioxidant rich formula and broad spectrum protection ensures total confidence when out and about in the sun. Containing specific ingredients, it also prevents melanin production and helps to fade sun damage and age spots. It inhibits enzymes that are responsible for breaking down collagen. A true ‘anti-ageing’ product.
Here’s what our customer, Jane has to say about it:
“I feel like everyone should know about I’m covered sunscreen. It goes on crystal clear, takes about a minute to dry and leaves skin moisturised with a clear healthy glow. The best physical sunscreen that I’ve ever used. No white cast, not greasy or chalky and also does not transfer onto clothing. Make up applies beautifully on top. After trying one I’ve just ordered another four. It’s perfect!“.
The next Anti-Pigmentation Sunscreen we recommend is:
Ultrasun Anti-Pigmentation Sunscreen
This once a day formula is 50+ SPF. It targets pigmentation with specific ingredients and the formula is also antioxidant rich. Water resistant and also suitable for very sensitive skin that’s prone to pigmentation, it makes an ideal SPF choice for a holiday in the sun.
This formula was a winner with this years Beauty Shortlist Awards, winning Best Beauty Breakthrough – Daily SPF Product
Both products are amazing and efective, but our personal favourite is NCN I’M COVERED.
Customers can buy these products in our shop – Sun Protection.
Have a great day!
