Skin Lightening For Freckles

Using skin lightening products to reduce the appearance of Freckles

Freckles are thought to look cute on children but as we age and get more UV exposure, over time those small light brown spots will darken and become more numerous.

Skin Health Hub Skin Conditions Skin Lightening For FrecklesFreckles are one form of pigmentation. Another form of irregular pigment which commonly occurs on cheeks, upper lips or forehead is called Melasma.

Often confused with Ephelides (freckles) because the spots are not raised above the skin’s surface either, however the distinction is that Melasma often appears after hormonal changes have occurred as a result of pregnancy or from having taken the contraceptive pill.

In cases of pregnancy induced melasma, the skin often fades and returns to normal after pregnancy and similarly in the case of melasma caused by contraceptives discoloration can also fade once taking the pill is discontinued.

Although neither freckles nor melasma are serious skin disorders your self-confidence can be affected if you are unhappy about the unsightly appearance of your pigmentation.

How can irregular brown spots or freckles be treated?

Fortunately, you will find many skin lightening products on the market that have been specifically formulated to be used on the face to treat and reduce the appearance of pigment and help even-out your skin tone.

It is important to note that many creams contain a chemical skin lightening substance called hydroquinone. Over the counter hydroquinone creams contain a maximum of 2% concentration of hydroquinone and concentrations higher than 2% require a medical practitioner’s prescription.

However, if you would prefer not to use hydroquinone and would prefer to use a more natural skin lightening cream with ingredients that are derived from natural extracts such as Mulberry, Licorice and Bearberry plants try Meladerm.

Meladerm is an advanced skin lightening cream known for bringing about excellent results to lighten and brighten your skin without the use of harmful bleaching substances hydroquinone, mercury or steroids.

Whatever skin lightening cream you choose, make sure your skin care routine also includes the separate application of a broad spectrum sun screen with a minimum SPF of 15 to prevent more freckles from forming and to protect your skin from the harmful and dangerous effects of the UV rays of the sun.

So now you no longer have to feel distressed by the appearance of ‘dirty’ pigmented patches on the face as a solution is available.
