Barely visible until now, you are starting to observe the appearance of some lines in specific areas of the face. Discover how to take care of it.
Sun age spots
What do you notice ?
You have noticed the appearance of one or more dark spots in specific areas of your face. The forehead and cheekbones are often the areas most affected. Marks that are sometimes more visible or numerous on returning from your summer holiday or after repeated exposure to the sun. These dark spots, pigmentation marks, sun or age spots, etc. dull the radiance of your complexion and mark its evenness. Appearing generally from the age of 40 (sometimes from the age of 30 in fair or Asian skin), they mark the beginning of the first signs of visible skin ageing.
Did you know ?
Identify the reasons and distance yourself from them
Pigmentation marks, also known as lentigines, are due to an excess of melanin, a natural brown pigment that gives the skin its colour and is produced by the melanocytes. Hormones, sun exposure or the ageing process are all factors that can cause the mechanical process to get out of hand. Melanin production and distribution are disrupted. There are a number of solutions to help reduce the appearance of dark spots which result from these processes within the skin of an uneven skin tone such as specially formulated skincare. However, sun protection is subsequently a must.
