If you drive the car on daily basis or take long walks, don’t forget to reapply your broad spectrum sunscreen. Pay special attention to the left side of the face and hands which are exposed the most to the harmful UV rays during driving. 7 out of 10 of my clients have more hyperpigmentation on the left side of the face. Hyperpigmentation is the toughest skin condition to treat, thus always remember to protect your skin with broad spectrum SPF and melanin inhibiting ingredients to slow down melanogenesis process.
Hyperpigmentation is a common skin condition characterized by the appearance of dark or discolored patches on the skin. These patches can appear anywhere on the body, but are most commonly found on the face, hands, and arms. There are several different types of hyperpigmentation, including age spots, melasma, and post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation.
The primary causes of hyperpigmentation are an overproduction of melanin, the pigment that gives color to the skin, and the accumulation of melanin in certain areas of the skin. Factors that can contribute to hyperpigmentation include sun exposure, hormonal changes, certain medications, and skin injuries or inflammation.
Hyperpigmentation can be treated with a variety of methods, including topical creams and serums, chemical peels. It’s important to consult a skincare professional to determine the best treatment plan for your specific case. Sun protection is a key preventative measure to avoid further darkening of the area.
