Protect Your Skin from Hyper Pigmentation and Sun Spots
My best advice here is to stay out of the sun. Since that can be a bit impractical at times, I highly suggest youchoose a good sunscreen with a high SPF. Opt for makeup that provides sun protection; it’s an easy and beautiful way to prevent sun spots and hyper pigmentation. Sun protection clothing, hats and umbrellas should become your new pals in the sun!
It’s so important to keep a close eye on your skin, in and out of the sun. If you notice any skin changes or dark spots, schedule an appointment with your dermatologist to get it checked out. It’s better to be safe than sorry. Being conscious of your skin could save you from dealing with the consequences of excess sun exposure, such as hyper pigmentation and skin cancer.

Treat Hyper Pigmentation and Sun Spots
If you already have sun spots caused by hyper pigmentation, there are treatment options. Sun damage doesn’t happen overnight; hyper pigmentation is the result of years spent in the sun without proper protection. Treating hyper pigmentation and sun spots will also take some time and patience.
Chemical peels and microdermabrasion are two highly effective treatments for hyper pigmentation.
A chemical peel will treat skin discoloration caused by sun damage, smoothing out uneven texture and diminishing dark spots. Chemical peels can improve the appearance of skin affected by hyper pigmentation on the face, neck, chest and hands. Learn more about this amazing treatment for hyper pigmentation.

whole childhood without sun protection, it’s never too late to start taking care of your skin.
