SpotLite Treatments for Age Spots and Acne Marks

Acne scars can be one of the biggest skin care concern of many. As we grow out of acne, we get to face the next struggle, acne marks.

Ugly age spots often appear on exposed body parts, usually the face and arms. Skin cells create melanin to protect our skin from the UV rays. The overproduction of melanin causes those pesky brown spots to budge in our skin. Whether they show up immediately in the form of freckles or years later as the result of long-term sun damage, they can be persistent and hard to treat.
These dark spots are considered the new wrinkles. Wound marks, pregnancy, pollution, hormonal changes, hereditary factors, even gritty scrubs and light bulbs can all contribute to having uneven skin tone. But essentially, acne scars are the worst confidence-sucking mammoth of skin issues. It plagues the best of us.
Acne is caused by excess sebum. Anything can cause our sebum production to become overly stimulated―this produces oil, which then mixes with things like the hairs on our skin or dirt; our pores then become clogged. Bacteria can then get trapped inside the pores and multiply. This causes swelling and redness—which is the start of acne. Factors like pollution, cosmetic products, medications, hormones and genes can also cause acne.
What makes it even worse is that these ugly little heads can then turn into scars which develop when recurrent inflammation from deeper cystic lesions damages the collagen in our skin. Pricking breakouts the wrong way can cause long-term damage.
That said, there’s a plethora of medicated and over-the-counter products that promise to do the job of fading those marks, but only an ultimate solution can help promote even and radiant complexion. Enter the dark spot corrector: DERMAX Professional SpotLite Serum. If you don't already have one in your skincare regimen, it's about time.
