Recently, a client told me that without makeup on, she resembled a Leopard. It made her feel old and ruined her confidence.
If only you could turn back time. Imagine if you had never gone outside without wearing sunscreen? Never visited a solarium? And never sun baked for hours without protection?
Most of us have done at least one of the above on multiple occasions. Pigmentation may present itself as freckles, age spots and dark blotches.
The colour or pigment in our skin is formed by a substance called Melanin, which is produced by the Melanocytes in the basal layers of our skin.
Pigmentation is also affected by hormones, pregnancy and menopause.
Do not despair. There are treatments readily available to help with all of the above.
Firstly, we can do a course of lactic peels. These are gentle on the skin and can be used on most skin types.
Secondly, we recommend using a product such as Aspect Pigment Punch. This amazing product can brighten your complexion from the very first application. Containing Tyrostat (a powerful pigment inhibitor and brightener), as well as a cocktail of pure botanical antioxidants, and lactic acid.
And lastly, sunscreen. Yes we bang on about it. But sun damage is the number one cause of premature ageing. We recommend a physical sun blocker, we love Aspect Hydrashield for every day use.
