Melanin is the natural pigment in our skin that protects us from UV rays and makes our skin look tanned every summer.In September, many of us have returned to the workplace or are back studying after taking a break from it all for a few weeks or days. This year in particular, we really needed to get outdoors to top up our levels of Vitamin D and fill our lungs with fresh, clean air.
When we’re on holiday though, it’s easy to neglect our beauty routine. So you need to get back into the swing of it again, and that means first assessing the condition of your skin.
And you can do this by using the skin diagnostic tool on our website. All you need to do is answer a few quick questions, and we’ll help you find the right beauty routine to repair skin damage and let your unique beauty shine through. And this is the perfect time to do it; because when your tan fades, any dark or white spots that appeared during the summer months become more visible. But there’s no need to panic, we just need to analyse them and treat them.
These spots are caused by the malfunctioning of melanin production. If there is an excess of pigment in the skin, dark spots appear, and if there is a lack of pigment, white spots appear.
For this reason, the post-summer anti-spot routine should begin with exfoliation to remove dead skin cells and reduce pore size, to stimulate collagen production to prevent wrinkles and to boost the natural radiance of your skin.The second must-have in your anti-spot routine is our Mela White cream, your ally against spots. As well diminishing the spots, its active ingredients act directly on the pigmented area at all stages of the melanin production process. They block the signal that initiates pigment formation, inhibit the transfer of pigment to the skin cells and, in the case of darker spots, help fade the pigment. The Mela White cream also has SPF 30 protection that helps prevent further spots appearing as a result of exposure to the sun.
Finally, a complete skin care routine should include a night treatment. In this case, we recommend the Glow-Activating Peeling Balm, which strengthens, protects and moisturises the skin barrier, with a controlled peeling effect that guarantees safe and effective exfoliation night after night, so you wake up with smooth, retexturised and radiant skin.
