Post-summer sun spots? How to reduce and prevent them

posted in: Featured | 0

After your summer holidays, you might notice the appearance of sun spots on your skin. Although their causes are varied, they can be triggered by genetics or hormonal changes, and especially by the sun if you haven’t used suitable sunscreen or have over-exposed your skin. Apart from causing wrinkles and lack of luminosity, the sun is to blame for most of the blemishes that appear on your forehead, cheeks, or nose.

Therefore, specialists like Dr Gabriel Serrano, dermatologist and founder of Sesderma, insist on the importance of adopting a skincare routine that includes depigmenting products.

The perfect anti-blemish routine

As previously mentioned, the sun is the main cause of skin spots, such as melasma or lentigines. Therefore, the first and most important recommendation is to avoid direct sun exposure and always use SPF50 sunscreen, even when it’s cloudy. After cleansing, your routine must include a twice-daily (morning and night) depigmenting treatment. Some complementary products can help improve and reduce the appearance of blemishes.

The AZELAC RU line, with the effective TRX formula (based on tranexamic acid), prevents sun-induced pigmentation and, in combination with active ingredients such as azelaic acid or 4-Butyl resorcinol, has a double depigmenting action: it acts directly on the source of blemishes thanks to nanotechnology, and it has a selective action thanks to its depigmenting agents.

Like most Sesderma products, AZELAC RU is formulated using nanotechnology, which guarantees deep penetration levels and high effectiveness. The combination of the products of the AZELAC RU line delivers visible results. In just eight weeks, it’s able to clarify skin spots up to 90%, reduce the depigmenting effect by 75%, and prevent the potential appearance of future blemishes*.

AZELAC RU Liposomal serum is an intensive treatment to be applied day and night. Its potent depigmenting power acts on the skin to achieve an even tone.

AZELAC RU Luminous Fluid SPF50 has been especially formulated to be used during the day. It improves the appearance of blemishes and protects the skin thanks to its SPF50. In addition, its luminous pigments can bring the skin a healthy, soft, and glowing aspect.

AZELAC RU Gel Cream is applied at night and combines the different depigmenting active ingredients included in the line, with plant-origin growth factors and retinol.

AZELAC RU SPF30 Hand Cream is specifically formulated to hydrate, regenerate, protect, and even out the skin tone of hands.

Complementary products of the depigmenting routine

ABRADERMOL Microdermabrasion cream for face and body exfoliation. A weekly exfoliation is recommended to achieve smooth and flawless skin, improve its complexion and eliminate impurities.

SENSYSES Cleanser Lightening is a lipidic-bubble cleanser with vitamin C that cleanses the skin, removes make-up, evens out the tone and restores lost luminosity.

MELASES TRX Depigmenting Gel has an intensive focal action to improve melasma.

THIOMELAN SPF15 Cream is indicated for mild pigmentation and the prevention of chloasma, hormone-induced blemishes that tend to appear during pregnancy.
