Do D The Hidden Secrets of Blotchy Skin Tone, Brown Spots and Melasma Get Even! SPF Protection Go into any beauty emporium in Tokyo and you’ll find products that are distinctly different from what’s stocking the shelves in the U.S.A. Front and center in Japan are skin lighteners and brighteners, targeted to remove brown spots — from freckles, to sunspots, to melasma, to the discoloration left after a pimple. Isn’t Enough Although Americans’ desire to banish wrinkles has not been overtaken by the demand for skin discolor correction, the latter is gaining attention, in part to a 2006 report that an uneven complexion can impact a woman’s perceived age by up to 20 years. A decade ago, no one talked about hyperpigmentation. Today, it’s the “new wrinkle.” And along with this awareness comes research into the causes and cures for brown spots. Not all brown spots are the same. Some are caused by accumulated sun damage, known as sunspots or age spots, that usually appear on the cheeks, temples and the back of hands. Freckles, that first emerge as a genetic gift from our parents, grow worse from sun exposure and often fade or darken during the seasons. Post-inflammatory pigmentation (PIH) results from trauma to the skin. Melasma, thanks to its association with fluctuations in female hormones, has been dubbed “the mask of pregnancy”. For a long time the sun’s UV rays were deemed the primary culprit of hyperpigmentation. We now known that allergy, heat and even stress can produce brown spots. These conditions increase inflammation, which stimulates melanocytes, the cells that produce color in the skin. Anything that irritates the skin, such as burns, sun exposure, cuts or infection, release inflammatory chemicals to tell the the body it is under attack. When these chemicals are absorbed by the melanocytes, they respond by pumping out melanin, intended to protect the skin. But when produced in excess, melanin makes its way to the skin’s surface in the affected areas. People with darker skin are more prone to PIH, which can be seen when a hard to erase brown spot pops up in the wake of acne or a mosquito bite. Research also indicates that there is a correlation between lack of sleep and hyperpigmentation. Continued The Hidden Secrets … Continued from page 1 Under Eye Dark circles is partly the result of inflammation and aggravated pigmentation.
