Your skin is especially vulnerable to hyperpigmentation during the summer time. Dr. Timm Golueke shows us how to head into summer knowing exactly how to protect our skin and reduce the chances of hyperpigmentation.
#1 USE A SPF
“When it comes to avoiding hyperpigmentation exacerbated by sun exposure, prevention is key. Use a SPF 50 daily and don´t forget your neck and ears!” Dr.Timm Golueke
#2 INCORPORATE ANTIOXIDANTS
Antioxidants are blocking free radicals that cause oxidative stress to the skin. Focus on products loaded with antioxidants such as vitamin A, C, or E which can help repair damaged skin cells and even out skin tone.
#3 EXFOLIATE REGULARLY
To make your dark spots fade, exfoliating is key. Our essence works deep within the skin's layers to remove dead skin cells, increase cell turnover, lighten dark spots, and brighten up the skin's complexion.
#4 PROTECT YOURSELF FROM POLLUTION
“Pollution can cause chronic inflammation. This stimulates melanocytes, giving you unwanted pigmentation.” Dr. Timm Golueke
