A sun-kissed glow is lovely to behold. But skin spots of various kinds like liver spots, mottled brown patches and large freckles on the face and hands are beauty banes that affect millions of men and women.
Skin Spots You May Have
Constant sun exposure can lead to freckles for fair skinned people while darker skinned people are likely to get uneven complexion and blotchiness.
UVA light from the sun is also probably responsible for causing flat brown lesions known individually as lentigo to develop over a period of 20 to 30 years.
This means that most people with skin spots probably were not using sunscreen with adequate UVA protection in the past.
Liver spots on the hands and face are also due to damage caused by ultraviolet radiation.
The Natural Approach To Get Rid of Skin Spots
Use a gentle exfoliation with natural sources of salicylic acid, and keratinization-process promoting agents. Follow that with a broad spectrum sunscreen.
Your best prevention? Use a high factor sunscreen on exposed skin from an early age. Additionally, avoid sun exposure during the hot summer months when UVA rays are most abundant (especially between the hours of 11am and 3pm).
The solution to skin spots may include chemical peels or skin lightening agents recommended by dermatologists. But these are invasive procedures with side effects.
Tulsi or Holy Basil (occimum sanctum) extract has natural salicylic acid and is a COX-2 inhibitor. But how can you apply Tulsi topically?
SkinVeda’s Tulsi Pore Refiner is an amber-colored serum that will exfoliate and regulate sebum production to constrict pore size. Lentil seed peptides promote keratinization without taking off layers of your skin or drying it out completely. Rosa Multiflora extract from Japan has clinically shown to constrict pore size.
Use A Broad Spectrum Sunscreen
BB Tinted Physical Sunscreen with SPF 50+ contains minerals of zinc oxide and titanium dioxide that will not react with your skin when exposed to the sun. It will rather reflect radiation off of your skin. With such high SPF, you can be sure that you are well shielded.
The ‘tint’ has the added advantage of extra sun protection with natural iron oxides and matches your skin tone. This one tint actually matches all skin tones. The BB cream helps correct uneven skin tone, melasma, age spots and hyper-pigmentation. It contains a peptide in a slow release mechanism using an oleosome of safflower plant oil. That means you’ll witness the benefits throughout the day.
