Melasma and Skin Damages

Hyperpigmentation (dark skin areas) is characterized by an increased production and accumulation of melanins or an increased number of melanocytes. Melanins are dark colored pigments produced by special skin cells, called melanocytes.

Hyperpigmentation can be inherited or, more often,
aquired by a number of causes including photoaging, hormonal changes (contraceptives, pregnancy, menopause), repeated and prolonged
exposure to the sun, and chronic skin irriations, inflammation or skin diseases.

Dark skin areas may be of cosmetic relevance especially if they occur in the face or other uncovered body areas. Many efforts have been devoted
to screening and testing recognized and putative
depigmenting agents. In addition, physical therapies, such as lasers, are currently under investigation to treat hyperpigmentation.

Skin may appear darker than normal and may be blotchy, uneven areas, or patches of brown to gray discoloration or freckling. Skin pigmentation disorders occur because the body produces either too much or too little melanin, a pigment produced by melanocytes. 

Increased melanin production, also known as hyperpigmentation, is often referred to as melasma (general term describing darkening of the skin), chloasma (discolorations caused by hormones) or solar lentigines (darkened spots on the skin caused by the sun). 

In addition, hyperpigmentation can be caused by skin damage, such as remnants of blemishes, wounds or rashes.

Skin-lighteners (like bearberry leaves extract and undecylenoyl phenylalanine) inhibit melanin tyrosinase or melanotropin and reduce or block some amount of melanin production. 

Many treatments use a combination of topical lotions or gels containing melanin-inhibiting ingredients along with a sunscreen, and a prescription retinoid. Depending on how the skin responds to these treatments exfoliants, either in the form of topical cosmetic or chemical peels, and lasers may be used.

Fine lines & wrinkles, Enlarged pores, Loss of firmness/elasticity, Age spots, Dull skin

AMAZING KIT! We found! 

Excellent For Fine lines; wrinkles, Enlarged pores, Loss of firmness/elasticity, Age spots, Dull skin:

The biggest cause of aging skin is the decrease in the production of collagen and elastin that is needed to help skin maintain its integrity and tone. Loss of elasticity, decrease or change in color, fine wrinkling, thinning of layers, increased itchiness, etc. are all signs that your skin is aging and taking the rest of your body down (sagginess) with it.

The worst offender in this case is damage to the skin from outdoor sunbathing, indoor tanning and normal unprotected sun exposure when outdoors either working or playing. This kind of skin damage is clinically known as photoaging and can lead to freckling, spider veins on the face, age spots, leathery skin, fine wrinkles that disappear only when stretched, a blotchy complexion, actinic keratosis (those rough, reddish patches of skin seen mostly around the temples and cheeks), and worst of all—skin cancer.
The best solution for preventing further skin damage from the sun is to religiously apply sunscreens 30 minutes before going outdoors. It’s never too late to take this practice whether you are 8 months or 80 years. Furthermore, although sunbathing and indoor tanning does provide a healthy appearance, the long-term effects for such short-time results can make all the difference in not only how good you look throughout your life, but how long you may live. According to the American Cancer Society, more than 2 million cases of basal and squamous cell skin cancer are found in this country each year. Melanoma, the most serious type of skin cancer, will account for more than 75,000 cases of skin cancer in 2012.

Best eye wrinkles cream for 2013

As you age, your skin begins to develop fine lines and wrinkles, but wrinkles around the eyes can begin even in your youth. While prevention is key, wrinkles can be treated with creams and home remedies to reduce their appearance.

The bad news is, as women age, wrinkles under the eyes will eventually pop up. No matter how much you wish them away, it's only natural. The good news, however, is that you can slow down the process by drinking enough water, getting enough sleep and staying out of the sun for extended periods of time.
When the aging process begins, one of the first places where wrinkles, fine lines, puffiness and dark bags appear is around the eyes. The eye area is composed of extremely delicate and fragile skin that requires a lot of care and attention. If you want to eliminate the appearance of wrinkles and bags under your eyes, there are several things that you can do. Get on the road to a youthful and dewy complexion that is entirely free of wrinkles and other pesky aging signs.

If you find retinol too harsh on the delicate eye skin, go for a product with peptides, which, like retinol, stimulate collagen production. Powerful ingredients work synergistically in I'm Fabulous biophotonic firming eye treatment to help correct early signs of aging.

Retinol . "Anybody who can tolerate retinoic acid should use it," says medical esthetician Anis Lacerte. A vitamin A derivative, retinol stimulates cell turnover and collagen production, helping to strengthen skin and reduce complexion imperfections like sun spots and fine lines. Just remember that a little goes a long way; retinol creams make skin more sun-sensitive and can be overly drying, so apply sparingly before bedtime only.

Anis Lacerte 's also recommend using organic skin care, wear daily sunscreen and wear eyewear if you are in the sun.
Peptides . Supersensitive skin types might opt for a peptide-packed eye cream instead of a retinoic acid one. Like retinol, peptides also stimulate collagen and elastin production, but are gentler on the dermis.

It helps to diminish the depth of fine lines and wrinkles and gives eyes a more toned and healthy look by reducing puffiness, restoring elasticity, and combating dark circles.

Drinking water helps! But drinking water is very hard for some people, so another way you can try to keep your skin healthy is by eating plenty of fruit. A lot of fruits, like grapes and watermelon, are a good way to keep the skin hydrated.

Under eye skin is very delicate, so it is best to apply the anti aging cream by gently tapping it on with one finger. When you apply it this way you will not cause further eye wrinkles to form.
