Healthcare professionals refer to patches of skin that become darker than surrounding areas of skin as hyperpigmentation. When the skin generates more melanin, the pigment that gives skin its color, hyperpigmentation occurs. Melasma and sun spots, for example, are more prone to affect parts of the skin that are exposed to the sun, such as the face, arms, and legs. Thus, hyperpigmentation is one of those skin conditions that doesn't discriminate, and for some, it can feel as if dark spots on your face are unavoidable no matter what you do or don't do to your skin.
Sunscreen as your best defense
To prevent hyperpigmentation, one can use Sigi Skin’s Morning Glow, a physical sunscreen that contains avocado and acai extracts high in vitamin E and fatty acids, which helps to counteract the effects of the sun's infrared rays. The Morning Glow formulation is light and it has a whipped texture that easily blends into your skin, disappearing completely, leaving no white cast or greasy stains behind.
As a self-protective mechanism, your skin cells produce more melanin in response to UV rays, and SPF prevents the rays that harm the cells. Likewise, Morning Glow also contains the recommended amount of niacinamide (2%) to moisturize, brighten, and strengthen your skin.
Thus, the use of sunscreen every day will ensure a lifetime of healthy skin.
