Australia's most prone environmental effect, sun damage!
Pigment and discoloration occurs when exposed to UV or sun damage, our melanocystes are stimulated and cause melanin production which gives our skin that discoloration, this is a natural response in which our melanocytes are trying to protect our skin by causing a barrier between the sun and the cellular health.
There are different types of pigment from Ephelides (freckles) to Solar Lentigos also knows as sun spots or liver spots and of course, the infamous Melasma!
Melasma/ Cloasma is a hormone induced pigment, all of which can be stimulated by UV, sun exposure, heat stimulation, stress, medication and hormone inbalence.
We come across a lot of skin concerns regarding pigmentation and “photo ageing” which is premature ageing caused by sun damage and UV effects.
Characteristics of photo ageing include fine lines, impaired barriers, course textures, dehydration and of course pigmentation.
Continual sun exposure causes dysfunction in the underlying layers of the skin and cell health and function, aiding in risk of skin cancers, premature ageing and loss in skin laxity. Just to name a few..
Using sun protection daily and in regular intervals is essential for blocking harmful UV rays to protect and prevent any sun damage.
Do you know SPF is also dubbed the best anti-age product you can be using for your skin!
