What are the two main causes of the appearance of skin spots on the face?

The skin spots of the skin of the face represent one of the characterizing elements related to skin aging and in this case we talk about senile spots, often very wide and dark, but it is a process linked also to photoaging, process that does not directly depend on age (and in this case even very young girls may have noticeable skin spots).

How do spots form on the skin?

Skin spots are usually formed due to a malfunction of the melanocytes, the cells that produce melanin. Melanin, often mentioned when it comes to tanning, plays a particularly important function for the defense of the skin by activating to protect it from UV rays. It often happens that the malfunction of the melanocytes is evident only when it is too late and the first sunspots have already appeared. Usually the color of these areas of the skin appears darker, tending to brown.

There are also other causes behind the formation of the skin spot: in fact in some cases there are also other external factors that can adversely affect, such as a genetic predisposition, the use of wrong cosmetics or fragrances and synthetic perfumes that stain the skin under the sun.

Skin exfoliation! Facial skin exfoliation is important because:

You can opt for a deeper exfoliation by doing a monthly treatment:

  • AHA peeling: suitable for those who want to minimize signs of aging, imperfections and dull skin. It is suitable for all skin types, even the most sensitive, thanks to a skilful mix of natural alpha hydroxy acids (5% concentration) that make the formula delicate but highly effective. It promotes skin renewal from the outside, accelerating natural cell turnover and from the inside, being able to nourish and protect the deeper layers.  After 6 days the skin is renewed by 83%.

    How to use: apply to the face, hold on for 10 minutes and then rinse. The treatment is repeated 1 time a day for 6 days, 1 time a month. On the days when peeling is not recommended to perform other types of exfoliation. Just wait 1 week - 10 days and then return to do the facial scrub once a week.
