Dark spots? Blemishes? Get rid of them!

¿Manchas en la piel? ¡Acaba con ellas!

Do you have dark spots? Blemishes? Get rid of them!

Having smooth, soft porcelain skin without any spots is what everyone desires. However, the truth is that the sun, stress, and pollution affect our skin. Dark spots and blemishes are a constant concern, especially when spending time outdoors or if a hormonal imbalance occurs, like pregnancy or menopause. Besides affecting our physical appearance, dark spots and blemishes force us to use more makeup to cover them, which is not healthy for the skin. Thus, treating and preventing them is possible. It all depends on the time and energy you spend taking care of your skin to see better results. Here are some tips to help you.

Always wear sunscreen

It is very important to use sun protection to prevent dark spots on the skin. Recently, there is more awareness of the risks of sunburn, photoaging, and skin cancer. That’s why using sunscreen has become a basic beauty step for daily skin protection. Our expert dermatologist Leyda Bowes emphasizes how excessive sun exposure impacts the skin, and to protect it, she recommends using hats, sunglasses, and a water-resistant sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher. (1)

Apply retinol

Retinol is a form of vitamin A used to treat acne and smooth fine lines and wrinkles. It has been shown to reduce acne breakouts and diminish the appearance of skin pimples and blemishes caused by acne (2). Try the Piel Eterna A.C.E. Retinol Intensive Rejuvenation Oil, which contains vitamin C, E, salicylic acid, and cocoa, among other ingredients, to clean pores, remove dead cells and restore the skin's natural barrier.



Even skin tone

Certain skin conditions like acne not only can affect someone’s self-esteem and confidence but also damage the skin's barrier function and cause blemishes (3). A solution could be a product that helps even out your skin tone, like Piel Eterna’s ZELMA Brightening Serum. It contains a powerful mineral combination of zinc, selenium, and magnesium that helps restore the skin’s luminosity.



Turmeric also helps with dark spots

Studies show that turmeric has properties beneficial for the skin, such as antioxidants, antimicrobials, and anti-inflammatory. Whether you take it as a supplement or use it topically, turmeric helps improve some skin conditions and soften blemishes. (4)
It's never too late to give your skin the love and care it needs to keep it youthful and glowing. There are solutions to eliminate face spots and have radiant, healthy skin. Using the right products recommended by dermatologists is better than going through the trouble of covering them up. Always remember that taking care of your skin should be a priority for healthy aging.
