What causes dark spots on face?
There are many factors, both internal and external, that can have an impact on your skin pigment. The most known cause for dark spots is sun damage, which is why a sun cream
or a sunscreen lotion are fundamental steps to any skincare routine. A sun-damaged skin will produce more melanin than usual, resulting in the famous sunspots; these dark patches on the skin can vary in size and shade, depending on the person's skin tone and sun exposure. Other known causes for dark spots on the face include hormonal imbalances (resulting in melasma or chloasma), skin inflammation (either from acne breakouts or an injury to the skin), side effects from medication, diabetes, and, of course, skin aging. Also called age spots, these dark marks aren't necessarily dangerous, but face discoloration can be bothersome from an aesthetic standpoint, which is why Lancôme offers the best dark spot correctors and creams to get rid of hyperpigmentation.
How to get rid of dark spots?
While there are several medical and cosmetic procedures that can remove or reduce age spots, there is no one-size-fits-all solution: given the risks and possible side effects, a professional should be consulted in order to give a personalized recommendation of a face hyperpigmentation treatment for your skin. However, this does not mean your hands are tied: home treatments, including face moisturizers, dark spot collectors, and hand creams, can be effective allies in your quest to minimize the appearance of skin hyperpigmentation. Combined with the right sun care routine, these skincare products can have a visible, long-lasting effect against dark spots on the skin, correcting uneven skin tones and smoothening out the skin texture.
