Blotches in which small patches of skin appear to have a different color than the main skin area become common as we age. It is important for you and your dermatologist to watch your skin discolorations carefully. For liver spots (also known as age spots), which are harmless, try cosmetics and skincare products containing one or more of these ingredients:
- Hydroquinone, an antioxidant that has been found to be helpful in breaking down and preventing the accumulation of browned pigment cells that form age spots (lipofuscin).
- Kojic acid, which is derived from mushrooms and soy, and has been used by the Japanese to fight age spots.
- Glycyrrhiza glabra, an herb that breaks up clumps of brown skin cells so that they can be shed by the body’s natural cycle of exfoliation, and fights free radicals, which contribute to the production of lipofuscin.
Bare Skin Care Program For Hyperpigmentation is one of the best ways to combat age spots and melasma. Skin care products in this program contain both hydroquinone and kojic acid, plus other bleaching agents and a plethora of natural, organic skin care ingredients.
For the best face creams, use Bare Skin Care.
