Eat a healthy diet
Load up on the greens! You may know that a healthy diet is key for healthy skin, but did you know a diet rich in antioxidants (i.e. fruits and veggies) can reduce free radicals in your skin, grow healthy skin and help reduce skin discolouration and hyperpigmentation?
Always use SPF
While we love the sun for its warming rays, it’s not always doing our skin any favours. Sunlight is the number one cause of hyperpigmentation and dark spots, as well as skin-ageing like wrinkles and crow’s feet. Make a habit of wearing SPF daily if exposed to direct daylight, even on cloudy days.
Avoid pollution on the skin
If you live in a city, your skin is exposed to chemical and physical pollution particles from for example exhaust fumes and dust every day. When these particles collect on your skin, they can cause oxidative stress that make your skin more vulnerable to hyperpigmentation and dark spots. One of the best ways to avoid this is to make sure to always, and we mean always, cleanse your face at night to get rid of all the grime. We also recommend using skin care products with pollution protection built into the formulations, that shield your skin from the negative effects of these harmful particles.
Protect the skin barrier
Just like the walls of your house protect you against external elements, your skin’s barrier function is key to keeping your skin healthy with an even skin tone. During the night, the skin barrier repairs damage that has happened during the day. To protect your skin barrier make sure to keep your skin hydrated and use ingredients like niacinamide that works to strengthen skin barrier.
Use skin care for hyperpigmentation and skin discolouration
If your preventative tactics aren’t helping and you’ve already got dark spots and other skin discolorations like yellowness, greyness or redness, skin care designed to reduce hyperpigmentation and skin discolouration can help. NovAge Brilliance is our advanced skin care range that reduces all major skin tone discolourations and dark spots in just two weeks*.
How does it work?
• Skin Tone Regulator Technology switches off excess melanin production◊, reduces hyperpigmentation and improves other skin tone discolouration.
• Ribwort plant stem cells help neutralise the effects of oxidative stress to help counteract all major skin tone discolouration.
• Aqua-Bank Moisture Strategy provides the skin with hydration around the clock that makes it look translucent and luminous.
