The skin is a miraculous human structure which functions as an interface between self and non-self. Healthy skin is a virtual feast for the eyes and comes in a beautiful array of uniform colors and tones. It’s perfectly smooth to the touch and free from marks and blemishes. Our skin encases us, regulates us, defends us and sometimes it can exacerbate us too! By: Katherine Tomasso NATIONAL DIRECTOR EDUCATION at YONKA PARIS
When and how do dark spots appear?
Pigmentation is what gives our skin its very unique colors and tones. It comes from a process called
melanogenesis during which melanin, the molecule responsible for pigment, is produced. When
this process becomes unstable, the complexion loses its even tone and youthful radiance. As the
condition worsens unsightly dark spots can also appear. Left untreated the problem of excess pigment can escalate and random brown/black spots can darken, enlarge and spread to other areas of the skin. Pigment disorders adds years to a woman’s perceived age, and 62% of women of every age and ethnicity are seeking effective product solutions for both complexion brightening and targeted pigment control.
Dark spots, also known as hyperpigmentation, is caused by an over production of melanin.
Skin Color: Both Innate and Acquired
Due to genetic factors our natural skin color is defined at the start of life. The melanin producing cell, the melanocyte is a large cell which is located at the stratum basal layer of the epidermis. Humans all have the same number which is pre-determined at birth and essentially they do not factor into skin color. Changes in the way the melanocyte functions and transports pigment impacts the skins ability to process melanin in an efficient manner.
As the melanocyte is triggered to respond to environmental stressors smaller compartmental cells within melanocytes, called melanosomes continue to synthesize and transfer new melanin through the epidermis and the skin’s outer most layers, the stratum corneum. Aging, Hormonal Disturbances, Sun Exposure, Inflammation, Past Acne Blemishes, Drug Interactions and other factors all have the potential to undermine the skins normal pigmentation process, causing melanin to overproduce and become unevenly distributed, settling into clumps along the skin’s surface.
How to fight hyperpigmentation?
For decades, Scientifics have searched for ways to fight hyperpigmentation. Several dermatological approach exist but unfortunately, some of them are considered as dangerous for the health. Chemical components have been used to brighten dark spots and unify the complexion hence devastating heath issue.
