Mom’s Pigmentations Disappear

In today’s world, looking beautiful is one of society’s top priorities. One of the most important aspects of beauty is proper skincare. Our skin is the canvas to the rest of our beauty regimen. Whether our concern is having a flawless complexion, a glowing and vibrant color or a smooth texture, finding the best ways to keep our skin looking amazing is of utmost importance. Our skin demonstrates to the world the time, effort and value we take to look our best.

Beautiful skin should last a lifetime. External factors like pollution and internal factors like oxidative damage and poor diet often stress the skin. This leaves the skin dry and dull or oily and dirty. As part of the natural aging process, the skin begins to develop deep wrinkles and furrows around the forehead, brow and eyes. The skin loses its natural luster and color.

What happens when you have skin pigmentation?
If you look into the mirror, you will notice immediately that:
• Your face looks dull with an uneven skin tone
• You have dark spots on your face
• You look tired all the time
• You look older than your age

There are many types of skin pigmentation and each of them appearance differently depending on its type. For example:

1. Sun Burn Pigmentation (Solar Lentigines )
Commonly known as sunspots. Solar lentigines are usually brown in color and they do not cause a change in skin texture. They are darker and more irregular in appearance compared to freckles. People with a lighter skin tone are more prone to sunspots. Exposure to UV rays for a prolonged period of time may cause and develop more sunspots, or make existing ones become darker in color.

Where do sunspots appear?
Areas of the face with higher sun exposure are more likely to develop sunspots. These areas include but are not limited to the cheeks, cheekbones and the nose.

Causes
• Overexposure to sun: When our faces are exposed to the sun, melanin, a dark pigment will be developed and found on the skin’s surface and it will clump together. Prolonged exposure may accelerate this process, causing the sunspots on our skin to darken or increase in number. Sunspots are considered the most common type of pigmentation among the others.

Freckles
Freckles are flat circular spots which are usually tan or light brown in color. Freckles do not cause a change in skin texture, they are found in the size of matchstick heads. While freckles are an extremely common type of hyperpigmentation, they are more often seen among people with a lighter skin tone.

Where do they appear?
Unlike other types of hyperpigmentation, freckles may develop randomly on the skin especially on areas that are repeatedly exposed to the sun.

Causes
• Genetics: Freckles usually occur to one when he/she is young; it may even start appearing as early as one reaches two years old. With age, its appearance may become increasingly obvious. Although freckles removal is not necessary as it is not cancerous, freckles can make one look older than he/she is.
• Overexposure to sun: Long-term exposure to the UV rays from the sun can cause the surfacing of new freckles and the darkening of existing ones.

Age Spots

Age spots are usually tan, brown or black in color and oval in shape. The size varies from freckle size to more than 13mm. It is also known as liver spots and they tend to develop on the face after the age of 40, indicating that the skin has entered its aging period.

Where do they appear?
Age spots on the face are commonly found on the sun-exposed areas, especially on the cheeks and cheekbones.

Causes
• Aging: When skin ages and it is further exposed to environmental damages, melanin is consistently produced to protect the skin. Hence, age spots are very common in adults over the age of 50. Nevertheless, it may develop on younger people too, especially those who spend a lot of time in the sun.
• Overexposure to sun: On areas of the skin that have been exposed to frequent and prolonged sun exposure, melanin is produced in high concentrations and builds up in these areas, resulting in age spots. Apart from that, frequent trips to tanning salons can also contribute to the development of age spots. The highly sought after sun-kissed look is actually the result of our skin’s natural defense mechanism to protect deeper layers of the skin from harmful UV rays, which are known to accelerate the production of melanin and skin aging.

Post-Acne Pigmentation
Post-Acne Pigmentation is normally developed from healed acne wounds. There are two types of post-acne pigmentation: Marks which are reddish in color are caused by broken blood capillaries that have yet to heal at the site of acne lesion; marks which are dark in color result from an overproduction of melanin in reaction to skin inflammation at the affected area. Without proper treatment, post-acne pigmentation may take months or even years to fade off.

Where does it appear?
Post-acne pigmentation typically appears on areas of the face that are prone to pimple outbreaks.

Causes
• Squeezing of pimples: When extraction is not carried out professionally, instead of pushing the pus out, one may be pushing it further down. This can lead to more redness and swelling. The skin and the tissue beneath it may also get damaged in the process, increasing the chances of inflammation and the risk of scarring.
• Usage of unsuitable skin care products: Acne may worsen with the usage of overdrying facial cleaners and alcohol-based products as they can be irritating to your skin. Besides that, skin care products for acne-prone skin could be harsh on the skin and when overused, the skin may become drier, causing the skin to produce even more sebum to keep our skin moisturized. This in turn, may cause even more pimples to form.
