We all know the different names of pigmentation – hyper pigmentation , hypo pigmentation , dermal pigmentation, sun damage etc on the skin but do we really know the difference and do we understand why only specific professional treatments can be used on specific pigmentation types.
So it is important to know your type and what can be done for you needs. Technology is evolving daily and treatments are becoming more advance, but so important to realize that it start mainly at YOU.
SPF are just not enough – so if you wear a SPF invest in a good one and wear is daily. Even when you have a office job – this is essential. (Computer screens, Florence lamps – they all cause damage)
Besides your SPF the next steps are essential for more protection – I know this is not always possible but more essential when having an outdoor job or being outside the entire day.
You might have a different type of melanin making you more able to “tan” than burn but not TOUGHER. Please remember that.
Look for a product containing Kojic acid, Arbutin, Bearberry extract, Azeliac acid, Ascorbic acid, Alpha Tocopherol, Linoleic acid,Niacinamide, Retinoic acid, Lactic acid and Liquorice extract.
These are just a few and with technology we will discover even more.
