Today it’s my pleasure to share a guest blogger. April Yeager L.E. of Celebrity Skin Studio shares her experience with pigmentation.
Spring is here! I enjoy the sun shining, birds chirping and flowers starting to bloom. However, I am not looking forward to the return of seasonal allergies and stubborn sun spots rearing their ugly heads! As it gets warmer, everything sprouts up!
I often hear clients say things like, “ My makeup isn’t as concealing like it used to”, “ I have always cleansed my skin with awesome products, used moisturizers and never went a day without SPF, how can this be happening to me?” “What am I missing in my routine to help with this issue?” The answer lies within our skin. Skin is one of the most fascinating organs, or at least I think so! Skin is our body’s largest organ measuring about 20 square feet. It protects our body from bad microbes, regulates our body temperature and it heals itself! So, of course we should take good care of it! Melanocytes are found in the epidermis (the outermost layer of the skin). When there is an injury or trauma to the skin, these melanocytes are activated and produce melanin to aide in the healing of the area. Unfortunately, there is no off switch and melanin is continuously being produced. Overproduced melanin results in what we call “sun spots”, “age spots”, or “freckles”.
What can we do to get rid of these spots? The key is to use the proper products and get treatments that specifically target that spot or area of concern. Hydroquinone, Kojic Acid,
LicoriceRoot, Mulberry, and Bearberry extract are some primary ingredients used in skin care products that help tone down discoloration of the skin. While it doesn’t happen overnight, prolonged use of these ingredients paired with appropriate treatments will give amazing results!
