With the arrival of the much-awaited summer holidays many people will have chosen a relaxing holiday made of long days sunbathing on the beach. However, if you do not pay attention to the excessive sun exposure, sun can turn into an enemy and severely damage our skin, causing unsightly discolorations on the face and body (especially arms, shoulders and back).
Skin spots are provoked by the bad functioning of melanocytes, which are the cells that produce melanin. These cells can undergo alterations and as a result of this could convey melanin unevenly on the skin causing both dark and light spots.
The main factors are:
- Excessive exposure to sun rays
- Mix between sun rays and cosmetics or medicines
Before making rash diagnosis, it is good to be examined by a specialist and then, only in case of necessity, to start treatments able to solve or visibly reduce spots.
However, there are small tricks which, if followed, can avoid the unpleasant cheetah effect and avoid imperfections caused by suntan.
First of all, it is important to prepare the skin for sun exposure. You can do it in a natural and effective way by choosing the right food to be included in our daily menu. Without any doubt, a good quantity of apricots (which are a source of beta carotene that helps skin cells finding the right functionality and repairs the damaged ones) and strawberries (rich in vitamin C) should never miss.
Secondly, it is good to adequately protect the skin with natural lotions which are at the same time rich in active principles, such as UV Care Protection by Kiemè. It is a totally natural average sunscreen protection which can be used in aesthetic treatments in your beauty routine. UV Care Protection is made of:
- Aloe vera juice: soothes, moisturizes and heals
- Carrot oil: makes the skin more elastic, has antioxidant and protective functions
- Avocado oil: deeply nourishes the dermis
- Tanning bio-accelerator: stimulates the production of melanin
- Sun screens: protects against UV rays
Once both dark and light sunspots have appeared on the skin, prevention gives way to a focused action: Deep Clean microdermabrasion. It is a device by EME Estestica and is the best solution to give more brightness to skin and remove unsightly spots.
