The outward signs of aging become apparent in one of the most visible areas of our bodies: our faces. Besides lines and wrinkles, just one look at a face can often reveal dark spots, hyper pigmentation, uneven complexions, liver spots, brown spots and other skin imperfections that make us appear older than we are.
Skin discolorations can be a natural side effect of the aging process. It can also be a result of overexposure to the sun’s rays. Getting rid of these discolorations can be achieved through lightening skin products. These creams and lotions can help fade away skin blemishes such as spots, freckles, acne scars and dull complexions. Creams that lighten the skin do not have to be harsh chemicals that destroy underlying tissue or do other long-term damage to the body. The skin spots and areas that need to be brightened can be done using all natural ingredients, such as Belides, which is derived from a flower: the daisy. When you think of a daisy, you often think of bright summer days, and the flower itself resembles a sun with yellow or white petals radiating out from the middle. It makes sense that an ingredient such as Belides would work on lightening skin using the daisy, such as found in Ageless Derma products.
In the last fifty years or so, sun tanning has become a very popular way to show that one is well-to-do and can afford to take the time to bask in the sunshine and while away the hours doing nothing. The same effect could be achieved by spending some money to use a tanning booth indoors and then emerge with a golden or bronzed skin tone, especially on those with a light complexion to begin with. It became a known fact, after a while, that tanning was a bad thing for your skin for a few different reasons. The most serious reason was the possibility of developing melanoma, or skin cancer, due to the harmful effects of the sun’s rays. Another reason not to sunbathe with abandon was the proliferation of sun spots or premature ageing of the skin due to sun exposure.
Dark spots, brown spots, liver spots, freckles – all could be traced to sun exposure after years of gaining glorious tans. Those dark spots would not cause any serious health issue for some people, but they would mar their facial complexions. Large or small, brown spots on the temple area near the eyes, in the nasal area or anywhere else on the skin would cause people to look for ways to brighten up and get rid of those spots.
Another main consideration for those looking for lightening skin products are annoying dark circles under the eyes. No one wants to be asked all day long whether they are tired, or how late they stayed up last night, or whether they feel ill today. Those dark shadows can possibly be due to a multitude of causes: lack of sleep, poor nutrition, genetics, iron deficiency, dehydration, weight loss, aging, allergies, nasal congestion, stresses, thin skin or many other factors. When a simple under-eye cosmetic shadow concealer doesn’t work, a skin-brightening product can be sought out. This would be a more permanent fix, and the more natural the product, the better it will be for you. Certain vitamins are wonderful fixes for dark shadows and spots on the skin. Your complexion will be brightened and you will look younger and livelier.
Some of us are not happy with the tone of skin we were born with. For cultural or fashionable reasons, they wish to have a lighter skin complexion. This is also true for some persons who have very uneven skin tones, with dark areas melding into lighter ones. They desire one continuous, even skin color. It is safer and easier to brighten the skin rather than darken it. As we already know, the sun’s uses for darkening the skin are not safe or healthy. Seeking out a natural, safe product or cream that can lighten, brighten and even out the skin’s complexion is very popular in today’s dermatological skin care market. Rather than purchasing the first item that advertises skin lightening, one should research the market and look for a product that touts natural ingredients and will get the job done.
