Dark spots on face
According to Phoebe Khoo, Sothys training manager, melanin protects our skin from damaging UV rays. Sometimes, due to over exposure to the sun, hormone imbalance, hormonal changes, stress and ageing, you get dark spots and pigmentation. This is related to the hyperactivity of melanocytes.
The most effective way to lightening or preventing the formation of dark spots is to limit the melanogenesis process by inhibiting tyrosinase, regulating keratinisation, stimulating the cell renewal and reducing the productivity of inflammatory mediators.
Meanwhile, to get a brighter and more uniformed complexion, you should not just focus on the hyper-pigmentation but the entire skin complexion by improving the collagen synthesis and reducing localised redness.
Sothys(W)+ Brightening Programme is a high-performance dual action skin brightening solution that targets pigmented zones and visible spots, leaving skin bright, radiant and uniformed.
The dark rings around the eye area are caused by a slowing down of blood microcirculation under the eye which makes the micro-vessels swell with blood. Rings can be a recurring thing as a result of vascular congestion that can be associated to tiredness, stress, alcohol or lack of sleep, genetic predisposition or a sign of ageing.
Try Sothys Active-Contour Age-Defying Cream for day and night. Do not forget to remove your eye make-up or foundation. Improper cleansing steps will cause eye discoloration due to the colour pigment from the eye shadow stains on the skin.
The normal routine for a complete finish is toner, serum, moisturiser, sun protection SPF30, liquid foundation and concealer before covering up with a thin layer of powder, in that order. If you are looking for better coverage you should use adequate foundation as a base and then apply the concealer, blending in evenly before applying another thin layer of liquid foundation. Too much of foundation in a single application will cause the skin to look unnatural and can easily cause “dehydrated” lines on the eye contour.
Whitening and anti-ageing products each have their own function, delivering different sets of results. It is always best to get a proper skin diagnosis to identify your skin condition so that proper skin treatment can be prescribed. If your concern is both whitening and anti-ageing, you can have a combination of both ranges in your skincare regimen.
From Sothys, you could use the (W)+ Brightening Products and the Sothys Ageless Programme. Ultimately, it is always best to seek professional advise so that your beauty regimen can be customised in order to achieve the best results.
Sothys will be giving Wendy a Foaming Cleansing Cream worth RM214. I have a combination skin. I also have brown spots or pigmentation on both cheeks, fine lines in the forehead and open pores. My skin tone is a little uneven. I am currently using an anti-wrinkle product and my face seems to be hydrated in the day, but by evening, it appears oily and the brown spots darker. I’m wondering if my uneven skin tone and pigmentation will get worse. When I use brightening products, the fine lines seem to grow deeper and the pores seem to be clogged up. How do I solve my problem? – Diana David Khoo, Olay skincare scientist, says that our skin needs change as we age. Research has shown that these changes start to manifest in our 20s as signs of ageing, which commonly include skin dryness, dark spots, skin dullness, rough texture, uneven skin tone, and fine lines and wrinkles.
Many women in their 20s and 30s do not face just one, but multiple signs of ageing which they seek to address. Women often use individual products to treat specific concerns, but with multiple signs of ageing, they may feel that their quest for beautiful and youthful skin is an endless battle, especially when they want to spend less money and time on skincare.
In a recent survey on Asian women, almost half of them (47%) said that they would want to spend less money and time on skincare, as long as they could maintain the same or better skin results. So, what is needed is an antiageing moisturiser that can address all the multiple signs of aging that you face.
