How to Pre­vent Hy­per­pig­men­ta­tion

Herworld (Singapore) - - SPECIAL -

It’s eas­ier to stop dark spots from form­ing than to try to re­move them after.

Use sun­screen with at least SPF30 – this keeps out 97 per cent of UVB ra­di­a­tion. Pro­tect­ing skin from the sun is thought to lower the risk of skin can­cer and re­duce signs of pre­ma­ture age­ing. Be sure to ap­ply it around the eyes too (you can safely do so up to 2mm away from the lash line), and don’t for­get the bridge of your nose ei­ther. Try Prive Triple Ac­tion Skin De­fence SPF50/ PA+++ ($62.06), an ul­tra-light sun­screen that coun­ter­acts free-rad­i­cal dam­age with an­tiox­i­dant CoQ10.

Lastly, avoid the sun by keep­ing to the shade, car­ry­ing an um­brella, or wear­ing a wide-brimmed hat wher­ever pos­si­ble.
