Living in Malaysia, many of us are concerned with dark spots or an uneven skin tone. The payoff for an outdoorsy lifestyle, is increased sun exposure, which takes its toll on our skin and commonly shows up as hyperpigmentation (the technical term for dark spots).
Why Does the Sun Cause Dark Spots?
The link between our skin and the sun is melanin. Melanin is a protein which gives our skin, hair and eyes colour. But beyond colour, melanin’s primary role is protection against UV rays – it’s our natural SPF! This is why the more sun we have, the more pigmentation issues we experience, as the sun stimulates our skin to manufacture melanin. What you’ll also notice is that your sun included dark spots typically appear on the cheeks and forehead, because these high points of the face get more sun.
There’s a new Pigmentation Trigger on the Block…
With a growing population and more energy consumption, comes more airborne pollution. And much like UV, pollution is damaging for our skin. In fact, recent studies show that rising levels of soot and traffic generated pollution cause a 20% - 25% increase in dark spots, adding up to 20 years to your perceived age!
