By the time you finish reading this, you'll completely understand why face discoloration happens and what you can do to get rid of it. Skin discoloration on the face is completely treatable, as long as you use the right product to get rid of it. In a nutshell (without getting too technical), when your body is expose to the sun, special skin cells produce a skin pigment called melanin that absorbs these UV rays. This is done to protect the rest of your body from these harmful rays.
Whether you have dark brown spots on your skin or the tone and color of your skin is darker overall, it's all because of the presence of increased melanin.
The best prevention against face discoloration is wearing sunscreen whenever you go outside (even if it's just for 20 minutes). But if you've already developed brown spots or darker skin, then there's still a pretty easy way to get rid of skin discoloration on the face.
Applying the right kind of whitening cream can dramatically improve your complexion, remove skin discoloration, and even make your skin more youthful and radiant. It all depends on what ingredients are used and whether or not they are effective at doing a few things:
* Decrease the amount of melanin in your skin – the less melanin that's in your skin, the less skin discoloration on the face there is, and the lighter and brighter your skin will naturally be. Ingredients like Extrapone (TM), an extra nutgrass root, has been shown in clinical studies to decrease the amount of melanin in your skin by up to 40%! This is a healthy amount because too little melanin in your skin makes you very vulnerable to UV radiation damage.
* Increase the amount of CoenzymeQ10 in your skin cells – this is one of your natural antioxidants that gets depleted first by overexposure to UV radiation. Using a whitening cream that contains CoQ10 (in a micro- or nano-form) can boost your natural levels of this antioxidant, reduce skin discoloration on the face, and restore your skin cell's efficiency and protecting capacity.
* Provide extra antioxidant and free radical protection – a face discoloration cream with additional natural antioxidants like natural vitamin E, grapeseed oil, and vitamin C can dramatically reduce the amount of free radical damage in your skin, keeping it looking brighter and more youthful.
These are the kind of ingredients you want to look for in a face discoloration cream. Getting one that's made with all-natural ingredients will insure that your skin will not irritate like it commonly is when using one with synthetic ingredients. Plus with natural ingredients, they often provide multiple benefits for the skin- like ones that help preserve your youth!
