But then what are the causes?

The sun

It activates the production of melanin thus creating a tan on the skin . However, since spots are due to a disruption of melanogenesis , or the process of producing melanin , exposure to the sun will therefore intensify this disruption and the appearance of spots . It is therefore essential to protect your skin in order to prevent the appearance of spots .

For this, we recommend the clean and invisible sunscreen from Seventy-One .

The active ingredients to favor

You can favor clean cosmetics that respect your skin, by turning to active ingredients specific to your problem spots.

  • Lanceolated plantain is an active ingredient rich in flavonoids and tannins which stimulates the synthesis of skin fibers and prevents their degradation. It reduces the appearance of pigment spots , unifies and restores light to your skin.
  • Arbutin is an active ingredient that breaks down melanin , and thus effectively eliminates stains. It can be combined with vitamin C to boost its effectiveness.
  • Glabridin is a licorice extract, which has lightening and melanogenesis inhibiting properties, which thus helps reduce brown spots.

Ingredients to avoid

However, there are also preconceived ideas concerning natural ingredients which would be beneficial for the skin but which may in reality not be so effective , nor suitable for your skin, particularly in homemade recipes :

  • Lemon, for example, is terribly drying and astringent for your skin, it is very irritating and we do not recommend its use, except in your meals.
  • Essential oils can be very irritating and even cause burns and significant skin reactions ; they should also be avoided by pregnant women.
  • Coconut oil is another natural ingredient, which can be used to thin out homemade mixtures, however it can be comedogenic and should therefore be absolutely avoided for combination to oily skin.
