How to Prevent & Treat Dark Spots With Eminence Organics

Sun, liver, black, or age spots are a common form of hyperpigmentation and appear as small, flat and darkened patches of skin that are light brown to black in color.

Whatever name they go by, these patches frequently indicate harm to the skin. This article will explain dark spots, what happens to your skin when hyperpigmentation occurs, why it happens, and some skin care options to think about.

What Causes Dark Spots?

A pigment called melanin is present in your skin regardless of how light or dark your skin tone is. Melanin, which is produced by cells known as melanocytes, provides skin protection. But when hyperpigmentation happens, your skin overproduces melanin, which accumulates and leaves behind patches and areas that are darker than the surrounding skin.

All skin tones are susceptible to hyperpigmentation, however darker skin tones are more commonly affected.

Here are some reasons why you could be suffering from dark spots:

Sun Exposure

Sun damage is the primary cause of dark spots. Melanocytes respond to UV radiation by releasing melanin, which functions as a natural sunscreen. Because melanin redistributes the energy absorbed from UV radiation, it is beneficial. On the other hand, excessive melanin production brought on by the sun can result in skin patches and black spots.


Melasma, or a change in pigmentation, is one of the most prevalent side effects of fluctuating hormone levels. An increase in hormones causes the formation of melanin, a phenomenon that is often observed during pregnancy, hormonal therapy, or even birth control modifications. Dark patches on the nose, cheekbones, jawline, forehead, or chin are common in pregnant women and are referred to as a "mask of pregnancy" or "chloasma." Usually, this kind of hyperpigmentation persists until the end of the pregnancy or the hormonal balance is restored.


In individuals with acne, eczema, allergic responses, or other skin problems, dark spots may occasionally appear following inflammation or skin trauma. This kind of darkening, known as post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, is the skin's normal reaction to inflammation. The skin becomes irritated after a wound and naturally creates more melanin as it heals, which darkens the skin.

How To Prevent Dark Spots

Protecting your skin from further damage is just as important as reducing existing hyperpigmentation.

Apply Products With Vitamin C

Experts suggest that daily application of a topical antioxidant, such as a Vitamin C serum, can improve the appearance of dark spots. Having a bottle of this antioxidant-rich skin care product on hand is another crucial step in preventing hyperpigmentation because Vitamin C inhibits the synthesis of melanin (among many other advantages for the skin!).

The Eminence Organics Citrus & Kale Potent C+E Serum is a lightweight, advanced serum for all skin types.

Apply a SPF Moisturizer Daily

Wearing SPF before being in the sun is the only way it acts as a preventive measure. It has been demonstrated that applying vitamin C serum in addition to sunscreen significantly reduces the damage produced by free radicals that are released into the environment as a result of sun exposure.

When SPF and Vitamin C are combined, their advantages increase and become much more effective in minimizing dark spots and sun-induced symptoms of ageing.
