Sunspots are a common complaint for many people, especially after the summer season. We always recommend a skincare regimen that includes an appropriately protective level of SPF worn daily, and a healthy dose of antioxidant-rich products to repair cellular damage caused by UV rays and free radicals. But when you’ve done all the right things, worn your sunscreen, and still find those nagging sunspots on the face, there are definitely proven ways to answer the question of how to get rid of sunspots.
What are sunspots?
Sunspots are flat brown spots that develop on areas of your skin that are exposed to the sun. They're also known as liver spots, though they have nothing to do with your liver.
What causes sunspots?
Exposure to ultraviolet (UV) lights from the sun's rays or tanning beds accelerates the production of melanin, a pigment responsible for your skin color. After years of exposure, melanin may clump together or be produced in higher concentrations, causing sunspots.
What do sunspots look like?
Sunspots appear as flat, darker patches of skin (tan to dark brown) that are found on areas of the body that have experienced high levels of sun exposure such as the face, shoulders, hands, chest, and the backs of hands.
How to get rid of sunspots?
While there are many medications and medical treatments that can treat sunspots, these incorporate chemicals and other harsher skin irritants, and some may even require recovery time! We recommend finding methods to get rid of sun spots naturally, by using products such as our Perfect Rice Scrub.
The Perfect Rice Scrub is the best treatment for sunspots on face, and doubles as a gentle exfoliant that is suitable for daily use. Rice microspheres gently polish away dead skin, while olive leaf extract and colloidal oatmeal control hyperpigmentation and restore moisture, leaving skin softer, smoother, and brighter. Studies have shown that the rice scrub can lessen the appearance of melasma by 20% when used as a 5 minute mask. In addition to being excellent for sunspot removal, this product will give your skin a brightened, glowing complexion.
When you have a secret weapon like U.SK Under Skin’s Perfect Rice Scrub in your skincare routine, you can get back to what matters most – enjoying your time in the sun! Don’t fear sunspots on the face, just focus on the effective ways to remove sunspots the natural way.
