Marie Claire (South Africa) - - BEAUTY -

Are you strug­gling with an un­even skin tone and skin dis­col­oration on your face, neck or dé­col­leté? Skin dis­col­oration is a very com­mon skin com­plaint amongst South African women. It can be caused by hormonal changes in the body, in­flam­ma­tory skin prob­lems such as im­pu­ri­ties and acne, or skin dis­eases such as pso­ri­a­sis and eczema. Rec­om­mended by der­ma­tol­o­gists world­wide, Eucerin has cre­ated the Even Brighter range, con­tain­ing nat­u­ral in­gre­di­ents that are proven to be suit­able for even the most sen­si­tive skin. The range is com­pat­i­ble with all skin types and has been ver­i­fied in clin­i­cal and der­ma­to­log­i­cal stud­ies to help: re­duce skin dis­col­oration and dark marks af­ter four weeks of reg­u­lar use; stim­u­late the re­pair of skin dam­age; nour­ish and im­prove the skin’s ap­pear­ance; pro­tect and pre­vent fur­ther skin dis­col­oration. High in UVA and UVB pro­tec­tion, the day cream pro­tects skin against fur­ther skin dis­col­oration. Eucerin.com

Q

WHY IS SKIN PIG­MEN­TA­TION A PROB­LEM THAT AF­FECTS SO MANY SA WOMEN? A: Hy­per­pig­men­ta­tion is a com­mon con­di­tion seen in all skin types but most preva­lent in darker skin tones. In­flam­ma­tion or in­jury to the skin is of­ten ac­com­pa­nied by al­ter­ations in pig­men­ta­tion. The in­creased amount of melanin is re­spon­si­ble for the pig­men­ta­tion dis­or­ders.

Q

HOW CAN ONE PRE­VENT SKIN PIG­MEN­TA­TION? A: Some­times the causes of pig­men­ta­tion are ge­netic, such as Melasma, which can’t be pre­vented but can be con­trolled. Gen­eral mea­sures in­clude min­imis­ing sun ex­po­sure – as UV rays make pig­men­ta­tion worse – and us­ing a broad-spec­trum sun­screen. People with pim­ples shouldn’t pick them, as this trauma causes in­flam­ma­tion and wors­ens acne marks.

Q

HOW DOES EUCERIN EVEN BRIGHTER WORK? A: When an ex­ces­sive amount of melanin is pro­duced, spots and brown patches can ap­pear on the skin. Eucerin Even Brighter acts where melanin syn­the­sis oc­curs. B-Re­sor­ci­nol in­ter­rupts pro­duc­tion and af­ter four weeks (the skin’s re­gen­er­a­tion cy­cle), marks on the skin’s sur­face are di­min­ished. Gly­cyrrhetinic Acid helps to re­pair UV-in­duced cell dam­age, sup­port cell re­gen­er­a­tion and pre­vent signs of pre­ma­ture age­ing.
