7 Ways To Reduce Dark Spots And Wrinkles

Now that the sun-kissed days of Summer are officially over, a common concern (and complaint) that we hear from women is the appearance of dark spots.

Whether you have them already or are trying to avoid getting them, here are 7 things you can do to help.

This type of darkening of the skin is known as hyperpigmentation, which not only causes dark spots to appear on your skin, but can create an all-around uneven skin tone.

Pellu

Your skin cells produce a color pigment called melanin, and when this is over produced, it can result in hyperpigmentation of the skin.

So what exactly causes this to happen?

There are a few reasons, which include exposure to the sun, hormonal changes (especially in pregnancy), age, certain medications and even inflammation or trauma from acne, bites and burns.

What can you do?

  1. Prevent further sun damage
  2. Well the first measures to take are to be sun smart. Don’t over expose your skin, and wear a high quality, high SPF sunblock during peak times of the day (even in colder weather!).

  3. Exfoliate
  4. Exfoliation can also help you to cleanse skin and stimulate the growth of new skin cells, but only gentle exfoliation – you don’t want to trigger inflammation which can lead you back to hyperpigmentation.

  5. Prevent pimples and clogged pores
  6. Pimples, acne, and infected pores can all trigger hyperpigmentation. If you suffer from spots and blackheads, make sure to cleanse your skin thoroughly, morning and night. Follow up with an alcohol-free, pH-balanced toner to really help the cleansing process for oily skins. Then apply a moisturizer that doesn’t block pores, but that nourishes and hydrates your skin. Oily skins need moisture too!

  7. Eat foods rich in vitamins, minerals and antioxidants
  8. Fill your diet with healthy fruits and vegetables (preferably organic) that contain Vitamin C and antioxidants, to help nourish your skin and ensure natural production of melanin from the inside out.

  9. Pay for “resurfacing” treatments
  10. Resurfacing treatments like laser, microdermabrasion and needling can correct some scarring and pigmentation issues. These treatments work quickly, but they can be expensive and painful. They also carry risks of infection, prolonged redness, scarring, acne and milia, and even aggravated pigmentation problems. To reduce these risks, see a qualified dermatologist (a doctor who specializes in skin diseases).

  11. Use a high strength chemical lightening product
  12. There are many chemicals that lighten skin at high concentrations, either OTC or requiring a prescription (including those derived from plant sources). Each has pros and cons.

    Chemical How it works Pros Cons
    Chemical Hydroquinone How it works Hydroquinone reduces melanin (your skin pigment) by Inhibiting an enzyme called tyrosinase. Pros Effective skin lightening at 2% strength after 4 weeks. Cons Can cause irritation, allergy or discoloration. Not safe for pregnancy or breastfeeding. Stay out of sun and avoid peroxides.
    Chemical Retinoids (e.g. retinol) How it works Retinoids are vitamin A derivatives that speed up skin cell renewal and increase collagen. Pros Effective for acne, wrinkles and pigmentation over 12 weeks. Cons Can cause dryness, redness, flaking or burning. Some people are allergic. Stay out of sun. Dangerous in pregnancy due to fetal abnormalities.
    Chemical Alpha hydroxy acids or AHAs (e.g. glycolic acid) How it works AHAs exfoliate or “peel away” the surface layer of your skin. Pros Glycolic acid at 5-30% makes skin smoother and lighter colored. Cons Can cause irritation, sensitivity to sunlight and wind, recurrence of cold sores, or discoloration. Stay out of sun.
    Chemical Beta hydroxy acid or BHA (salicylic acid) How it works Salicylic acid exfoliates or loosens the surface layer of skin. Unlike AHAs, BHA is oil soluble and penetrates oily pores. Pros Salicylic acid 0.5% and higher can improve acne, pigmentation, roughness and fine lines. Cons Can cause irritation, dryness, crusting, redness, and (rarely) systemic toxicity. Some people are allergic. Do not use in pregnancy due to bleeding complications.

Some people are allergic. Do not use in pregnancy due to bleeding complications.
  13. Use a natural lightening product
  14. Finally, if you want a gentle, gradual solution to dark spots, add a natural product to your skincare line that can safely target the site of excess melanin production, help block excess pigmentation from triggering in the first place, reduce inflammation and even protect your cells from UV and free radical damage. Pigment-reducing plants like licorice root, bearberry, Indian gooseberry, and white mulberry take longer to work, but don’t compromise your lifestyle or your health. Many plant ingredients are rich in vitamin C, enhancing collagen production. You also gain the benefit of exfoliating AHAs or BHAs, which are naturally found in fruits (citric acid, malic acid, tartaric acid), grains (azelaic acid), dairy products (lactic acid), sugar cane (glycolic acid) and willow bark (salicylic acid) - so look out for those ingredients.

Pellu

“I am a skeptical person, seldom seeing the results of what a product claims, I have been using this nightly for about 3 weeks and I can honestly say my complexion is brighter and just more even toned, I do have a few age spots and they are lighter and less noticeable, I think this is just the cherry on top of an already fabulous line!”
-Susan W.

"I absolutely love Pellu Overnight Radiance Renew Cream! After just a few days I felt the difference, I see the difference, and I can tell you right now that my night time routine will always include this amazing product. Thank you, Pellu!”

- Marisol C.

“Pellu Overnight Radiance Renew Cream has been a game changer for me! I've always been a makeup wipe kind of gal until I turned 40. I knew I needed a change. My skin was red, angry, several dark spots and in general not healthy. I stopped all skincare other than Pellu products and was shocked to see brighter skin and a lot less redness! I love trying new products but Pellu is one brand I will not move away from after seeing the results!”
- Kara U.

“I have never had a line of skincare work as well as Pellu Skincare. The Brilliant Night Treatment definitely provided the moisture I needed overnight. By morning my skin felt and looked brighter. Within a week my skin had lost its dullness. I am a huge fan of this line and I am now #pelluforlife!!!”
