Whether due to the sun, pregnancy, age or acne, age spots make life hard. What if we decided not to let it go?
As long as to do, rather prevent than cure. And even if it is already too late, you might as well limit the damage by preventing the spots from continuing to proliferate on our skin.
Rule # 1: The best way to avoid dark spots is to protect your skin from the sun. We often tell you, UVs are on our beauty blacklist. Even through the clouds, they slowly destroy our skin. So whatever the season, wherever you are, you think of applying a high index cream. Easy, since we find more and more day creams (but also BB, CC, DD and company) with protection index up to 50+, ultra lights and easy to wear every day. We don’t even see the difference anymore with a classic cream!
Rule # 2: Do not scratch, puncture, or even just touch its small (or large) buttons. It is the only solution to avoid inflammations, which form small brown or red spots just as unsightly as acne in itself. We take our troubles patiently and adopt a healthy beauty ritual, to balance our skin without attacking it. In case of persistent problems, we go to the dermatologist.
So, and those that are already well installed, how do we eliminate them?
The best way to treat your spots is to start with a visit to the dermatologist, who will be able to tell us whether they are superficial or deeper spots, and direct us to the appropriate techniques.
At home, we set up a real ritual, to fight against stains every day.
The good ritual
Morning and evening :
1. A mild, slightly exfoliating cleanser to lighten the complexion, gently erase dead cells and refine skin texture.
2. An anti-stain serum to illuminate and correct the complexion while preserving the youth of the skin.
3. Finally, an anti-stain moisturizer for deep treatment.
And we don’t forget the body! We choose a moisturizer also equipped with an anti-stain complex.
The Bright Now range from Surface-Paris Laboratories is specially formulated to treat and slow the appearance of imperfections created by hyperpigmentation, caused by prolonged exposure to the sun and a sign of premature skin aging. Vitamin B3, Mandelic Acid (derived from bitter almond extract) or Sabiwhite (derived from the turmeric plant) lighten the complexion and activate cell regeneration while promoting the elimination of pigmented cells.
A professional meeting
To get rid of stains effectively, there are more radical, but often more expensive solutions.
In an institute, we offer a lightening treatment. In the dermatologist, one can have recourse to techniques such as cryotherapy, the laser, the pulsed light, the peeling depigmenting.
Several vegetable and essential oils have already proven themselves in anti-stain. For fans of natural solutions, here are some remedies:
– lemon juice
– Castor oil
– aloe vera gel
– Argan oil
– lemon essential oil.
For an immediate result, we take out the make-up artillery.
Camouflage operation: using a tone-on-tone corrective foundation, each stain to be camouflaged is covered with small pressure before smoothing the outline. The color is uniform by applying a beige foundation, in harmony with the skin color which is fixed with a powder and a fine mist of thermal water.
At each stage, we try to have the lightest hand possible! The proof with our friends the stars, nothing prettier than a natural look …
