Do you have pigment spots in your face? These small spots are discolourations of the skin that can appear anywhere on the body. They are caused by an overproduction of melanin in the skin. This is also known as hyperpigmentation. Flat, colored spots appear on the skin and their shape, size and colour may differ. Hyperpigmentation can occur at any age and with any skin type. Some pigmentation spots are present from birth, others only appear at a later age.
The biggest cause of pigmentation spots is sun exposure. Are you a big fan of tanning? Then there is a good chance that you will get pigmentation spots. Other possible causes can be skin ageing, hormonal fluctuations (e.g. melasma) and diseases (e.g. vitiligo). If you want to prevent pigmentation spots, it is important to protect your skin against sun rays. Therefore, always choose a day cream with an SPF. Day creams specifically developed for hyperpigmentation will blur the existing spots, making them less noticeable.
In the range of Optiphar you will find day creams against pigmentation from various high quality brands such as Clinique, Darphin, Nuxe, Uriage, Eucerin and La Roche-Posay. Be sure to check out the Caudalie products, which are known to have a very good result when used to treat pigmentation spots.
