the not-so-hot spot
Age spots (or brown spots): if you have ‘em, there’s no doubt you hate ‘em. So why are we discussing something so despised? Because new research is bringing them into the light.
Age spots have a scientific name: hyperpigmentation. Hyperpigmentation is an over-production of melanin in skin, caused either by excessive sun exposure, scarring, or hormones, leading to an uneven, mottled skin tone.
The latest market research reveals these spots can make skin look older as much as a wrinkle. So get ready to see skin brightening products competing for space on shelf at your favorite skin treatment center (if you haven’t already). So what sets new Dermalogica ChromaWhite TRx, our answer for brighter, more luminous skin, apart from the rest?
Marie Claire’s December 2008 issue points out Pure Light SPF30 and the entire ChromaWhite TRx system is hydroquinone-free. Hydroquinone is a skin “lightening” ingredient that “…can be irritating and in very rare cases can actually make skin darker.” Want to know more? Click on “Your Skin” then “Uneven Skin Tone” to learn more about Hydroquinone, and why Dermalogica products are Hydroquinone-free.
If brighter, more luminous, and healthy skin is on your wish list, ask your Dermalogica professional skin therapist for your free Face Mapping® skin analysis to find out if ChromaWhite TRx is right for your skin.
