How to Prevent Sun Hyperpigmentation

When the skin is exposed to the sun, it activates its self-defense mechanism to avoid sunburn. The melanocytic cells produce the skin pigment melanin to create a protective barrier. Unfortunately, in some cases the melanin is not always distributed evenly throughout the skin and some darker spots can appear.

To prevent sun hyperpigmentation, we have to understand how the skin functions work to provide the skin with the ideal plant nutrients and treatments.

Skin Hardening Sun (Keratinization)

UV radiation also triggers an increase in keratin production, which leads to skin hardening due to sun exposure. This action is also one of the reasons why dark spots form on the skin.

To avoid this kind of hyperpigmentation, we have to make sure to counteract the excessive keratinization from sun exposure.

Skin Pigmentation Sun and Cell Regeneration

To prevent excessive or uneven skin pigmentation from the sun, we have to enhance the cell renewal process.

It is very important that this skin renovation is very gentle and respects the skin’s natural cycles.

Acid or laser treatments may be effective momentarily, but they are a severe aggression for the skin. They literally burn the skin and make it more sensitive, leading to irritated and inflamed skin.

Hyperpigmentation Sun Exposure and Cell Memory

The skin has a cell memory and remembers every aggression and damage.

These memorized experiences return later on like a boomerang. Therefore, many people suffer from hyperpigmentation after sun exposure, even if they constantly protect their skin with high SPF sunscreen.

Treatment to Avoid Dark Spots from the Sun

The ideal skin renovation is to gently renew the skin during the months of increased sun exposure.

By alternating the gentle exfoliation with True Revelation and the masque Instant Liberation, we can limit the excessive buildup of keratin in the skin.

As a result, this treatment prevents dark spots from the sun and keeps the skin soft and supple. The natural, non-sensitizing retinol of True Revelation also improves the optimal functioning of the melanocytic cells favoring the even pigmentation of the skin.

Sun Pigmentation Treatment for Lighter Skin Types

  • Twice a week in the evening (e.g. Thursday and Saturday) apply the exfoliation and retinol treatment True Revelation.
  • Twice a week (e.g. Monday and Wednesday) apply a thin layer of the masque Instant Liberation before you go to sleep.

Sun Pigmentation Treatment for Darker Skin Types with a Tendency to Dark Spots

  • Three times a week in the evening (e.g. Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday) apply the exfoliation and retinol treatment True Revelation.
  • Three times a week (e.g. Monday, Wednesday, Friday) apply a thin layer of the masque Instant Liberation before you go to sleep.

By following these steps to treat your pigmentation spots, you can ensure your skin is ideally renewed during the summer months and help prevent sun-induced hyperpigmentation.
