Nerium and Brown Spots

What Are Brown Spots on the Face

What Are Brown Spots on the Face?

Nothing can make you feel more down about your appearance than having brown spots on the face. In some cases, you notice them gradually darkening while in other cases you look in the mirror one day and feel as though they showed up overnight, even though they didn’t. There are also many people who don’t really notice them until their tan is fading in the fall. Whatever the case is, you are probably wondering where they came from, and more importantly, how you are going to get rid of them?

Brown Spots on the FaceUnderstanding Melasma

Those brown spots are actually a real skin condition called melisma. It is a disorder that can affect anyone, but individuals with darker skin tones are at greatest risk. It is often associated with estrogen and progesterone because it is quite common in women who take oral contraceptives and those who take a hormone replacement during menopause.

There are some who have associated cosmetics with the condition; however, a direct link has never been proven. The most common cause of brown spots on the face is the sun. Those harmful UV rays are not your friends. Not to mention, thanks to the depletion of the ozone layer, the rays are far more damaging today than they were years ago. This is why the importance of applying at least 30 SPF cannot be stressed enough. Wearing a wide-brimmed hat or staying under an umbrella at the beach will offer additional protection.

Getting Rid of Brown Spots on the Face

Unfortunately, brown spots are a lot more difficult to get rid of than most expect. They can’t simply be scrubbed away, despite your most dedicated efforts. This is damaged skin, and since they usually occur as you age, this means your skin is also older. The middle layer of skin has thinned, oxidation has taken place, and minimal collagen is being produced. There are several methods you can use to get rid of brown spots. Sadly, most are either painful or else they only address the current problem and do nothing to improve the health of the skin to help prevent future damage.

  • Bleaching Cream – These products do offer a quick fix by lightening the spots, but they rarely remove them completely, nor do they help the skin produce collagen. Plus, they typically come with their own list of uncomfortable and unsightly side effects, including redness, peeling, and dryness.
  • Chemical Peels – Superficial peels are safer than deeper ones, but you need several to see results. Deeper ones work better, but they are often irritating. You are essentially burning the top layer of skin cells. Clearly this is not improving the health of your skin.
  • Laser Resurfacing – Like a chemical peel, the laser “burns” off the dark spots. Since it removes the epidermis, you can expect to feel a significant amount of pain and experience redness and peeling. In most cases it takes a full week to recover, and can cost as much as $5,000 depending on how many spots you need treated.
  • Intense Pulse Light Therapy – This is a bit cheaper than lasers, but most people need four to six treatments at three-week intervals. Recovery time is shorter, but it is painful. The worst part is that results typically last only about a year, and that is if you are diligent about sun protection.
  • NeriumADNeriumAD is more effective and less expensive than the other methods, and it is painless. This patent-pending nighttime treatment has been created with oleander, aloe, collagen, elastin, and many other beneficial ingredients to actually improve the health of your skin; not just cover up or burn off the problem. It is paraben-free, non-comedogenic, and best of all, it comes with a 30-day money back guarantee, so you have nothing to lose.
