Hey Nurture My Body Family!
What is it with me and the Regenerating Cream this week? Earlier, I talked about how it can be used as a part of a skin regimen to treat Rosacea.
This time, I will be talking about age spots.
After a lifetime of being exposed to the sun, you're bound to have multiple consequences, including brown spots on your hands and face.
Age spots, technically known as "solar lentigines," are well-defined, uniformly colored areas of brown or grayish pigment that generally show up on the hands, face, neck, and chest.
Despite the name, these spots are not caused by age. Rather, they come from sun damage (so don’t feel old if you have them!).
Conventional treatment for hyperpigmentation includes bleach, specifically hydroquinone or tretinoin (Retin-A), which carry serious health risks like cancer, reproductive toxicity, and skin allergies. Also common are cryotherapy (freezing) and light therapy (either laser or intense pulsed light). Although effective and relatively safe, both of these treatments can cost thousands of dollars.
If you are concerned about the appearance of your age spots, here are some things that you can be doing:
In addition, try using our Regenerating Cream twice daily to aid cell turnover fading the age/sun spots while fighting wrinkles and providing the perfect amount of moisture.
