Have you noticed the appearance of dark spots lately? Don’t be too daunted quite yet. Here’s how you can even out your skin tone while keeping it healthy and luminous!

 

What Causes the Appearance of Dark Spots?

Dark spots appear when there’s an overproduction of melanin (pigments) in specific areas of skin versus the rest of the skin. This irregularity can be triggered by various factors, notably prolonged sun exposure. Regardless of the trigger, it’s important to know there are fourteen entire “steps” that lead to the appearance of dark spots.

Are Common Ingredients Used to Minimize Dark Spots Safe and Effective?

Two popular ingredients used to tackle dark spots are hydroquinone and kojic acid, which work by inhibiting the production of melanin. However, they only address one out of the fourteen steps that lead to the appearance of dark spots; thus, ignoring the other steps. On top of that, these ingredients often tend to increase irritation, which creates a vicious cycle (a rebound effect) not to mention their safety has been controversial.

Key Ingredients to Use for Even Skin Tone

Clinically proven to help visibly diminish the appearance of unwanted dark spots, Epionce’s MelanoLyte Skin Brightening System was formulated with gentle yet powerful and effective botanical ingredients that work synergistically to address uneven skin tone.
