They say a leopard never changes its spots, but luckily us humans can! If you are noticing age spots appearing lately and aren't exactly excited about it, don't worry. There's a plethora of ways to reduce the look of discoloration areas on your skin. We're gonna go over the ins and outs of spots, dots, and other discolorations and go over some great ways on how to remove age spots naturally.
So what is the difference between sun spots and age spots exactly? Sunspots, also known as solar lentigines, are flat, brown, or tan spots that develop if you are frequently exposed to the sun's ultraviolet (UV) rays. Sun spots on face, shoulder, arm, or other uncovered areas can lead to an overproduction of melanin, the pigment that gives skin its color. Sunspots often appear as small, round, or oval patches and can vary in size.
Sun spots are frequently also called age spots or liver spots, so if you are looking up age spot removal and sun spot removal you're in luck because SPOILER: They're the same!
Remember if your spots aren't flat or flush with your skin or you notice any changes in shape or size it's a good idea to consult with a dermatologist and double check any suspicious skin activity.
At Eight Saints we always like to rely on natural treatments for a variety of skincare concerns, and when you're looking to remove sun spots we've got you covered.
We're going to go over three of our most potently powerful skin recuperation products to help reduce the appearance and treat any solar speckling you are dealing with.
Each of these exemplary remedies features an impressive active ingredient that will confront your new spots head on and get you back to looking your best.
Glycolic acid, an alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) is derived from sugar cane and beloved by skincare aficionados for its hyper effective exfoliating abilities. It also happens to be the star featured ingredient in our amazing Soulmate Brightening Treatment.
Glycolic acid's tiny molecules cleanse your skin and gently remove dead cells, revealing fresher, brighter, skin, all while smoothing out your complexion. By carefully peeling away the outer layer, Soulmate's glycolic acid helps minimize the appearance of age spots and hyperpigmentation.
The exfoliating effect of glycolic acid also helps in balancing skin pigmentation. By encouraging the removal of unevenly pigmented cells and fostering the growth of new, evenly toned skin cells, it speeds up the process of fading sunspots.
This concentrated brightening treatment and AHA exfoliator stimulates cell turnover, clearing pores, reducing fine lines, and enhancing the absorption of other skincare products.
The result? A smoother, more uniform skin tone that you'll love. It's easy to see why this Soulmate was made a Bazar Magazine Editor's Pick.
Niacinamide, an active key ingredient in our amazing Up The Anti Night Cream, is a form of vitamin B3. And although it offers a wide range of benefits, it's particularly suited to diminishing sunspots and hyperpigmentation. Let's take a closer look at how:
With anti-inflammatory properties, niacinamide calms and soothes, while evening out your skin tone by addressing the underlying redness and inflammation.
Niacinamide regulates melanin production, the pigment influencing skin color, by limiting and slowing down its transfer to surrounding cells you can diminish the look of prominent sun spots.
Niacinamide also reinforces the skin's natural barrier, enhancing its defense against external factors like UV radiation, helping sunspot prevention before they show up.
Although nothing to do with sunspots, our Up The Anti Night Cream relaxes and invigorates with a dreamy green tea aroma that we absolutely love.
Vitamin C is clearly one of nature's superstars, from stopping scurvy to keeping our immune systems in tip-top shape; but like many of us, this miracle ingredient is also obsessed with skincare. For a healthy dose of targeted sunspot reduction look no further than our Seeking C Face Serum. Featuring a stabilized form of Vitamin C called SAP (Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate), that effectively diminishes sunspots and hyperpigmentation. It does this in a couple of ways:
Vitamin C (SAP) inhibits enzymes involved in skin pigmentation. So by reducing this enzyme activity, Seeking C with SAP vitamin C slows down melanin production, contributing to the reduction of sunspots and hyperpigmentation. And SAP's brightening effect promotes an even skin tone, knocking down the contrast between the hyper-pigmented sun spot areas and the rest of your skin, resulting in a more seamless complexion.
Vitamin C also serves as a potent antioxidant, shielding your skin from free radicals generated by UV rays and pollution. By neutralizing these harmful molecules, Seeking C prevents further skin damage, reducing the appearance of sunspots.
Our Seeking C Face Serum, a concentrated Vitamin C treatment, is designed to holistically help keep sunspots to a minimum. Consistency is key in skincare routines, making Seeking C an excellent pick for your new sun spot reduction routine. And while it doesn’t replace sunscreen, Seeking C can complement sun protection by minimizing the impact of UV damage on the skin and helping to prevent sun spots.
All three of these ingredients are fabulous in the fight against sun spots or age spots. Soulmate, Up The Anti Night Cream, and Seeking C each offer a unique method of tackling your sun spot removal issue.
BUT combine all three of them together and you'll be well on your way to a sun spotless new complexion.
