Freckles on your nose are cute at age seven but similar dark spots when you're 47? Not so much. Call them age spots, liver spots, hyperpigmentation or sun spots - no matter what name they go by, these dark spots are signs of skin damage or other problems with pigmentation. Here are the three top reasons for those spots on your face and how you can fight them with Eminence Organics Bright Skin Overnight Correcting Cream:
The number one cause of dark spots is sun damage. When exposed to harmful UV rays, the skin reacts by producing a protective pigment called melanin. Even though melanin provides some shielding from the sun, damage has already occurred deep in its layers - and it surfaces as sun spots. Make sure you wear a suncare product like Eminence Organics Bright Skin Moisturizer SPF 30 to protect your skin from further damage.
When hormone levels zigzag up and down, one of the most common side effects is a change in pigmentation. Frequently seen during pregnancy or changes in birth control, uneven skin tone is caused by extra hormones stimulating the production of melanin. Pregnant women often develop melasma which results in dark patches on the nose, cheeks, jawline, forehead or chin.
Age spots or liver spots are also caused by sun damage, accumulated over many years of exposure. “As you age,” says Harvard Medical School, “years of being in the sun start to add up.” Most common in adults over the age of 55, age spots tend to speckle the areas most exposed to the sun: face, hands, back, feet and shoulders. Now that you know the worst culprits that cause dark spots on your face, here is how you can tackle them. Besides staying out of the sun, wearing a hat and sunscreen outdoors, a powerful product like the new Eminence Organics Bright Skin Overnight Correcting Cream is your best bet for evening out your skin tone. An ultra-rich moisturizer, this cream works to address the look of hyperpigmentation at night. With its potent botanical blend, Bright Skin Overnight Correcting Cream brightens the look of your skin while you sleep!
