Summer stains? INNOVATION: Effective depigmentation routine, Radiance Clear skin booster

Blemishes on the skin can form for various reasons. Some of the most common causes of spots forming on the skin include:
  1. Sun exposure : Prolonged exposure to the sun, without protection, can cause the formation of skin spots, such as freckles, solar lentigines (age spots), and melasma. Ultraviolet (UV) radiation from the sun can stimulate the production of melanin in the skin, leading to the formation of spots.
  2. Aging : As we age, it is common for spots to appear on the skin, especially in areas frequently exposed to the sun. These spots are known as solar lentigines or age spots and are the result of accumulated damage from sun exposure over the years.
  3. Hormonal changes : Hormonal fluctuations, such as those that occur during pregnancy or the use of oral contraceptives, can trigger the formation of skin spots, such as melasma or chloasma.
  4. Previous skin injuries : Scars from wounds, burns, acne, or even medical procedures can leave blemishes on the skin, especially if not properly cared for during the healing process.
  5. Genetic predisposition : Some people have a genetic predisposition to developing skin spots, such as nevi or moles, which are benign pigmented growths.
  6. Allergic reactions or irritations : Exposure to certain chemicals, allergens or irritants can cause spots to form on the skin, such as a skin reaction.

    We must keep a close eye on any irritation or inflammation of the skin: for example, damage caused by waxing (on the mustache), or any dermatitis... can cause spots.

  7. Infections : Some skin infections, such as tinea versicolor, can cause colored spots on the skin.
  8. Medications such as hormone replacement therapy, anti-inflammatories, antidepressants...
  9. Some photosensitive perfumes.
What is clear is that the SUN is the culprit of activating or making any type of stain more pronounced. So, if one has appeared to you, it may have been more attenuated and more pronounced .
Now is the time to start the depigmentation routine.
Let's explain the staining process above to understand it better:
Our cells are renewed every 30-45 days, but with age, this mechanism slows down and we must provide cell renewal activators because, if not, the skin will look older.
Melanocytes are branched stellate cells found in the basal layer , the last layer of the epidermis that touches the dermis. In these cells melanin is manufactured, through the process of melanogenesis. Melanin is the pigment that gives color to our skin, eyes and hair. But it is also our natural protector from ultra violet rays. The formation of melanin must be constant to protect us, but sometimes it causes over-activation that we must regulate, as we mentioned at the beginning.
Melanin is born in melanocytes and is transferred to the other cells of the epidermis (keratinocytes) until it reaches the surface, where the corneocytes are, dead cells full of keratin.
In a depigmentation routine we will need:
Sun protection and melanin synthesis blockers along with exfoliating and antioxidant skin preparers .
NOT only a shock treatment in the cabin with laser, chemical peels, etc. is necessary.
  • Skin cleansing and hydration to promote the penetration of any active ingredient. If the skin is hydrated, the appearance of spots is also better prevented. Cleanser Balm oil .
  • Active ingredients that break the epicutaneous barrier , eliminating dead cells: AHAs, such as the skin booster Glicolpeel Dtox
  • Active ingredients that block melanogenesis , preventing the synthesis of melanin, inhibiting the action of an enzyme, tyrosinase, thus preventing the synthesized melanin from being transferred to the keratinocytes of the upper layers.
  • Antioxidant active ingredients that neutralize free radicals that promote pigmentation disorders and skin aging in general. Revital Premium skin booster at night , which reaches the basal layer, or Instant beauty that stays in the most superficial layers, where the pigmentation is most visible.
  • And, of course, the sunscreen that helps us prevent UV radiation from passing through.
Be careful with blue light from screens because it also activates melanin synthesis.
What makes our RADIANCE CLEAR skin booster depigmentation unique?
- It contains encapsulated active ingredients that block melanin synthesis in the basal layer: Kojic Acid and Arbutin, apart from tranexamic acid, arnica, niacidamin and aloe vera.
  • Kojic Acid (KOJIC ACID) is a natural active ingredient resulting from the fermentation process of Japanese sake made from rice wine. It acts on melanocytes, blocking the transformation of L-Tyrosine, an amino acid precursor of melanin. For this reason it is used as a depigmentant , tone homogenizer and whitening in the treatment of dyschromic unsightliness. It also has antibacterial and antifungal properties . In addition, it works as an antioxidant , thus completing its anti-aging action.
  • Alpha Arbutin (ALPHA-ARBUTIN) is a pure and water-soluble biosynthetic active ingredient, which activates the lightening and evens out the tone of any type of skin, by blocking the synthesis of epidermal melanin, inhibiting the enzymatic oxidation of tyrosine and DOPA. Structurally it is an α-glycoside. The α-glycosidic bond offers greater efficacy than the β form in beta-arbutin (commercially known as Arbutin). This circumstance allows us to obtain up to ten times more speed and effectiveness than with the traditionally used beta form.
  • Tranexamic acid acts on all types of spots of melanin origin, but due to its mechanism of action, it is especially indicated for those that are more resistant and recurrent, such as melasma , which is related to a vascular component. These can be: - Melanocytes , regulating the cellular mechanisms involved in the formation of spots, preventing and reducing the formation of pigment.
  • - Keratinocyte : skin cells that contain the pigment melanin. The inflammatory process that favors the formation of spots and that can appear after external aggressions or skin lesions such as acne or after certain medical-aesthetic treatments such as laser is interrupted.
  • - Blood vessel cells. It works by reducing the excessive vascularization that characterizes certain hyperpigmentations such as melasma .
Few active ingredients act on 3 pathways directly related to the formation of spots.
The remaining assets of this super cosmeceutical would be:
  • Arnica, plant extract, natural inflammatory. Ideal to reduce possible inflammation in any area and, around the eyes, for dark pigmented dark circles and bags due to edema.
  • Niacinamide: Water-soluble vitamin that is capable of penetrating the most superficial layer of the skin. It is a form of vitamin B3 , as it has a low molecular weight it will also allow it to reach the deepest layers of the skin. In addition, it is an ingredient that can be used on all skin types and has a large number of benefits.
By incorporating niacinamide into this booster, a series of benefits are added:
Benefits of niacidamide in skin treatments
  • Moisturizes the skin and increases collagen production to reduce wrinkles and signs of aging. Provides elasticity. Forms a barrier against external agents.
  • Fights and reduces acne . Niacinamide has sebum- regulating and anti-inflammatory properties that fight and reduce acne. In fact, it is an ingredient that deeply hydrates the skin and reinforces the creation of new cells to keep your face free of impurities. Thus, it can reduce the characteristic marks that acne leaves on the face and even the spots that occur around them.
  • It reduces facial irritation and redness , two disorders suffered by people who have very sensitive skin. Niacinamide can act against them.
  • Protects from the effects of the sun's ultraviolet rays. Such overexposure can cause your skin to become drier and age more quickly. Niacinamide , on the other hand, reduces the damage that solar radiation causes to your skin cells.
  • Reduces skin pigmentation and sun spots . The use of this product will keep your skin free of redness, thus avoiding photo aging .
  • Niacinamide is perfect because it helps reduce spots and other hyperpigmentation problems on the skin caused by the sun, acne and other imperfections, unifying skin tone.
  • Antioxidant properties . Its application protects the skin from free radicals and external agents. Niacinamide is responsible for repairing DNA that may have been damaged in your skin . In turn, it improves and enhances the energy of cells and promotes elasticity and hydration.
