How to get rid of pigment spots on both face and hands naturally?

Small dark spots are all over your face driving you crazy? Don't worry we got so many tips to get rid of them naturally! But first, let's go back to the origins. 

What causes pigment spots? 

Don't get me wrong, dark spots are not always due to aging! No matter your age, ethnicity or lifestyle, everyone can suffer from pigment spots! These are actually an overproduction of melanin that can be caused by different factors.

Get to know them

  • UVs: They are the first cause of pigment spots appearance both on face and hands. Be careful with some cosmetics you use when going under the sun. Many cosmetics contain a high concentration of alcohol and exposed to the sun it often leaves dark spots (we're thinking about fragrances).

  • Acne: when an acne spot is exposed to the sun, a dark spot can appear over it, especially if the skin is affected.

  • Skin aging:  As it ages, skin becomes thinner, more sensitive and the cell production is slowing down. When UV rays go through an aging epidermis, there is an overproduction of melanin in the exposed areas. It can appear on both hands and face! 

  • Hormones: the contraceptive pill and some types of medicines can have a big impact on hormones and create dark spots on your face. 

Now that you know what causes pigment spots on face, hands and sometimes on the chest, let's get to how to make them disappear. 

Get rid of pigment spots thanks to snail slime. Yes, my dear! 

There's nothing better than snail slime to take off the dark spots on your skin. Snail mucin contains allantoin that regenerates the skin and slows down the aging process, the glycolic acid that takes off the dead cells and rejuvenating agents like collagen, hyaluronic acid, and elastin. 

Caracol Skincare formulated the Crème Clarifiante et Unifiante, a face cream with 72,2% of snail slime that brightens and unifies the complexion. It visibly reduces the dark spots on both face and hands. In this formula, we associated snail slime to Chromabright, an active that slows down the production of melanin. No more pigment spots. The Cream is also enriched with papaya extracts and Chilean guava, both known to be super anti-aging actives.

Lemon contains vitamin C and E and natural whitening agents that help getting rid of dark spots on your face. Citric acid exfoliates and brightens the skin.
