You will never guess what causes your spots on your skin…
If you have opened this article, it is because you certainly want to decode your spots on the skin to better get rid of them. You are in the right place, we are always there to help you!
Skin spots are not concealed, they are treated!
When it comes to DIY, if you repaint a damp spot without investigating the source of the leak, you're guaranteed to have to do it again, and you won't be getting rid of it anytime soon. It's the same with spots on the skin: understand before you act. And if you're here, it's because you share our philosophy.
Melanin, the key to good looks... and spots!
Let's dive into the depths of the epidermis, the first layer of the skin. This is where the production of melanin, the brown pigment that gives color to the skin, occurs.
The factories that produce melanin are called melanocytes. They look like hands with long fingers (called dendrites, you can see them in the drawing). They create melanin but don't keep it for themselves. Thanks to carriers, they give it to their neighboring cells in the epidermis, keratinocytes. These are the storage sites for melanin. The two types of cells communicate with each other and quietly produce melanin pigment to give our skin a uniform color.
Melanin goes wild and spots settle on the skin!
Under the action of sunlight, UV rays, the melanin factories will move to the overproduction stage. To protect us from the damage caused by these UV rays, they create more melanin than usual. Result? Keratinocytes receive more melanin and our skin appears... tanned.
So far, so good... then it's a disaster!
The problem with our melanin factories is that, under the effect of repeated exposure to the sun, some of them are no longer able to return to a normal production rhythm. They are constantly overproducing melanin, even when there is no more sun. They are deregulated. There is too much melanin produced and accumulating within the skin cells. You've guessed it... spot formation!
If only melanin were the only culprit for spots on the skin
Indeed, the story doesn't end there. Other factors can increase melanin production: hormones, stress, inflammation, genes,... They are responsible for other types of spots, of varying colors and shapes: yellow, beige, black, red, in short, spots can show you all the colors! But if you have any doubts, it's best to make an appointment with a dermatologist who will examine any suspicious spots with a fine-tooth comb. By the way, wouldn't it be the right time to make an appointment for the annual check-up? It's far from superfluous if your skin has moles. While waiting for an appointment, you can monitor them yourself with a self-diagnostic guide.
Against spots, we have THE solution and it's not detergent
The secret is in the palms of our hands, all of us.
Look at them, they are whiter than the rest of the body and have no spots. A miracle? No, just nature... Their skin contains a protein that limits melanin production and thus prevents spots. We've managed to reproduce the way this protein works in a bottle, that of the Targeted Spot Corrector Care. It contains an active ingredient stimulating the production of this precious protein.
Your skin spots despair you, let Novexpert take care of it!
To lighten up to 84% of your spots in one month, we've added Green Tea Polyphenols, which contain EGCG, the most powerful antioxidant in tea. We find EGCG in large quantities in green tea from imperial harvest (including the bud + the first leaf). It's a super anti-spot and anti-aging molecule !
One last piece of advice for the road
Did you know that Vitamin C protects your cells from UV damage and prevents excess melanin? To recharge your anti-spot stock, opt for goji berries, plums, cabbages or blackcurrants. These fruits and vegetables contain 4 times more vitamin C than oranges.
