The best cream to remove dark spots

We are all born with a unique skin tone and require different solutions for issues that arise – whether it be dark spots, scarring from acne, or simply to achieve healthy glowing skin. Finding the right cream to remove dark spots is a common mission, and we’re here to help. Exuviance recognizes the unique challenges consumers face to achieve healthy, glowing, even-toned skin and have created some targeted products with clinically-proven ingredients designed to deliver real results.

Uneven skin tone and dark patches on the skin are characterized by areas of hyperpigmentation on the face, chest, shoulder or hands, caused by years of compounded sun exposure and are also known as sun spots, age spots and dark spots. Skin may also become discoloured after pregnancy or from taking oral contraceptives.

What causes hyperpigmentation?

Dark spots, or hyperpigmentation, are caused by an excess production of melanin. Melanin is the pigment that gives the skin its colour. It is produced by skin cells called melanocytes. When the skin produces more melanin than normal the excess pigment gives the affected area a darker look than the skin around it. Cue dark spots.

There are many different reasons for hyperpigmentation and dark spots on the face. One of the main causes is the sun’s UV rays. Other causes include inflammation of the skin, acne and breakouts, hormonal changes and menopause. Daily sun exposure will cause further darkening of pigmentation. We look towards a cream to remove dark spots that also has an SPF factor – this is crucial.

Additional factors adding to dark spots

Depending on the type of disorder, other risk factors for dark patches on the skin may include:

• oral contraceptive use or pregnancy, as seen with melasma

• darker skin type, which is more prone to pigmentation changes

• drugs that increase your sensitivity to the sunlight

• trauma to the skin, such as a wound or superficial burn injury

The better we look after our skin now, the slower we’ll age and the clearer our complexion will be.
