How to Prevent Pigmentation!
In my last email I gave you the ins and outs of how to fade existing pigmentation using medical grade lighteners. But what if we just want to prevent pigmentation before it even begins? Fortunately, there are things you can do to stop the production of melanin before it even starts. Let’s take a look at how to prevent unwanted pigmentation.
Prevention Is Key!
Protecting your skin from the causes of pigmentation before it starts! We all know the number one cause of spots is sun exposure. This means avoiding sun exposure when the sun is high in the sky, reapplying SPF every 90 minutes or so, wearing hats, and of course using SPF daily. I know, I know, I’m always reminding you to use SPF… and so is everyone else… but that’s because it’s SO important and people still don’t use it!
What Should I Look For in an SPF?
There are two types of SPF- physical and chemical. Physical sunscreens sit on top of the skin, rather than absorbing into the skin. It acts like a shield on the surface of your skin and causes less irritation, making it great for sensitive skin types. Chemical sunscreens are used to filter UV rays, converting them into heat and then releasing them from the body. This is a great option if you’re swimming or sweating a lot during the day.
Whether you choose to use a chemical or physical SPF is up to you, but the most important part is applying enough and re-applying it. Use at least SPF 40 and apply it before you go out in the sun for the best protection. Reapply every 90 minutes and every time you get out of the water to keep your skin safe from the sun’s rays!
