Many of you complain of having pigment spots. They are easily recognizable: they are small areas of brown skin, darker than your skin tone. To avoid these reactions (symptomatic of areas exposed to the sun), it is possible to use creams. Here is our selection of creams to use to limit the risk of spots appearing.
Anti-brown spot creams: are they really effective?
There are different types of pigment spots:
- Pregnancy masks;
- Age-related brown spots that appear on skin exposed to the sun;
- Acne scars.
In all three cases, the culprit is melanin. It increases on part of your skin and leads to the appearance of brown spots. These can form on the face, but also on areas of skin subject to repeated sun exposure.
The sun is not the only factor favoring the appearance of brown spots. Hormones, genetics and aging skin can also lead to the formation of brown spots.
Fortunately, there are effective solutions to limit the formation or darkening of skin spots. And the first reflex is obvious: use effective sun protection adapted to your skin!
To this sun protection, add creams designed for the treatment of brown spots and you may be able to find skin without any blemishes!
