Wearing Heavier Foundation? Stop!

As people age, the coloration of their skin tone begins to change. Gone are the days when it was one smooth color. Instead, light brown “age spots” begin to turn up, red patches can appear, and even paler areas may begin to define themselves. The first thing women do when that starts happening is buy heavier foundation. But the problem doesn’t need to be covered up, it needs to be solved.

Some of the imbalance in skin tone is caused by years of sun exposure and some is just a natural process of aging. But it can be slowed and even corrected by promoting healthier skin with a Vitamin A cream that penetrates the skin with antioxidants and renews collagen production. Your skin looks radiant and revitalized sooner than you would think from an OTC retinol product. You can expect ReNew Youth™ to:

  • Work deep below the surface of your skin

How to manage age spots with glycolic acid skin care

Your doctor may call them “wisdom spots,” but they typically are caused by the cumulative effects of ultraviolet radiation from sunlight after years of exposure. Age spots start small and grow larger with time, but often they seem to appear overnight!

For prevention, it’s important to use a good broad spectrum sunblock with UVA/UVB protection and an SPF of 15 or better. Cleansing and moisturizing your skin is also recommended to delay the onset of age spots.

To help eliminate existing age spots, use a good glycolic cleanser (10% strength is best) at least 2-3 times per week for skin exfoliation. Usually, the 10% glycolic acid strength is gentle enough to use every day and you can adjust the frequency to suit your tolerance.

Remember, patience is required!  The glycolic acid will reduce or even eliminate your age spots, but a dedicated skin care routine and sufficient time is needed.

What to do about Age Spots on your Skin, Hands, Face, Chest

Age spots, also known as liver spots or sun spots, are known to dermatologists as “solar lentigo,” or more lightheartedly, “wisdom spots.” As the medical name implies, they are caused by years of accumulation of sunlight exposure.  These spots can appear anywhere on your body that has had a lot of sun exposure, typically on the face, shoulders, arms, chest, hands, and neck.

Age spots are flat, round, dark, and much larger than a common freckle. As a cautionary note, while they are benign and pose no skin cancer risk, it is important to distinguish them from skin cancer, which will be dark spots showing irregular edges or uneven color, and change in appearance. Talk to your dermatologist if you have any suspicions.

How do you get rid of age spots? Your dermatologist can remove them with a laser treatment or by freezing them. If you want a less radical approach, try exfoliating your skin with a paraben-free exfoliator.  This process will yield results over time.

Finally, to help prevent more age spots, be sure to use a daily UVA/UVB sunblock with a SPF of at least 15.
