“The results have been incredible! My skin tone has evened out and I am so much more confident.”
- Bonnie Mbuli (TV Presenter, Actress & Author)
Bonnie, like many South Africans, used to battle with uneven skin tone.
What are the causes of uneven skin tone/dark spots?
Dark spots are caused by an abnormal distribution of melanin in the upper layers of the skin. Melanin is what gives colour to our skins.
Dark spots can be widespread or localised.
UV rays from the sun, free radicals and hormones are the common causes of dark spots and uneven skin tone.
Exposure to the sun is a major factor in the worsening of the condition – which is why an effective broad-spectrum and effective sunscreen containing an SPF of at least 30-50 is essential on your journey to combatting dark spots.
Eau Thermale Avène, Europe’s No.1 dermo-cosmetic brand introduces a specialised range of products formulated to address uneven skin tone and dark spots.
The D-PIGMENT range soothes the skin, helps reduce the appearance of existing dark marks and prevents new dark marks from forming thanks to powerful, ingredients with proven efficacy.
Recommended product regime:
Spray a fine mist of AVÈNE THERMAL SPRING WATER after cleansing (morning and evening)
Tip: Keep a bottle handy to soothe and calm the skin whenever necessary
Apply D-PIGMENT BRIGHTENING SERUM to the face and neck (morning and evening)
Apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen like SPF50+ EMULSION (normal/combination skin) or SPF50+ CREAM (dry skin) in the morning
Tip: If outdoors for extended periods, re-apply every 2 hours
4. Evening Care
Apply D-PIGMENT DARK SPOT CORRECTOR LIGHT (for normal/combination skin) or D-PIGMENT DARK SPOT CORRECTOR RICH (for dry skin) in the evening after repeating step 1 and 2.
