Seeing Brown Spots? You’ll Be Surprised At One Of The Causes

Hyperpigmentation (brown spots/freckles) is a very frustrating skin condition, and there are many causes that trigger melanin activity.

Inflammatory Factors
·    UV sun exposure
·    Overuse of strong chemical peels and laser procedures
·    Excessive picking at blemishes (Did your blemish leave you with a red or dark mark?)

Hormonal Factors
·    Prescription medication
·    Peri-menopause/menopause
·    Pregnancy
·    Birth Control Pills

But one surprising cause is heat from UV heat!

Even with a good daily sunscreen, we now know that heat from the sun triggers inflammation, and inflammation sets off a response to increase melanin activity. With the proper home care and in-spa professional treatments, brown spots and freckles will definitely get lighter.  Unfortunately, with summer upon us, brown spots can be made worse, EVEN if you are wearing sunscreen, sunglasses, hat and sitting under an umbrella at the beach or pool.

What To Do…
With all of the above, the main goals with the skin are to:
-Exfoliate – Break up and remove pigmented cells with Renée Rouleau Triple Berry Smoothing Peel.
-Use a skin lightener – Fade and suppress the melanin cells use Renée Rouleau Vitamin C&E Treatment.
-Wear a moisturizer with sunscreen 365 days a year, rain or shine, inside or out. You’ll love our Daily Protection SPF 30.

-Practice patience – It’s not going to disappear overnight.
