Melasma

Melasma

Also known as a tan or dark skin discoloration.

Melasma is a skin condition that causes dark, discoloured patches on your skin. These patches are darker than your usual skin colour.

Why Does It Happen?

It takes place due to melanocytes malfunctioning. This malfunction of the color-making cells causes excessive production of colour.

It also occurs due to sun exposure, genetic predisposition, hormonal changes, and skin irritation. While melasma can affect anyone, it is particularly common among pregnant women and those taking oral or patch contraceptives or medications for Hormonal Replacement Therapy.

How To Treat It?

Melasma is easily treated with skin lightening creams that are enriched with natural components like kojic acid, licorice extracts, and other antioxidants that reduce free radicals. In the case of damage caused due to excessive sun exposure, a sunlight protection cream usually suffices. The GoLite cream contains all of the above as well as other skin-lightening and skin protection agents, such as pTeroWhite, SabiWhite, nano bright, and galanga extract.

Hyperpigmentation

Hyperpigmentation

Hyperpigmentation is a term that is used to describe areas of the skin that have uneven pigmentation. These areas appear as darkened patches or spots, making the skin look uneven.

Why Does It Happen?

Hyperpigmentation is caused by an increase in melanin—a natural pigment responsible for the colour of our skin, hair, and eyes. A number of factors can trigger an increase in melanin production, these include sun exposure, hormonal influences, age, trauma, genetics, skin injuries, or inflammation.

How To Treat It?

One of the best ways to prevent hyperpigmentation is to apply a broad-spectrum cream for sun protection each day. When dealing with hyperpigmentation caused by trauma or injury, touching or picking at the skin is inadvisable. Picking at acne, blackheads, spots, and scabs triggers inflammation, which in turn increases the production of melanin.

Treatments for hyperpigmentation range from at-home or minimally invasive treatments, which entail the use of natural skin lightening creams, to extensive in-office procedures.

Sun Damage

Sun Damage

With the bright sunshine comes harmful UV rays. A mere 15 minutes in the sun could damage your skin, causing sunburn, premature aging, and even serious skin conditions like skin cancer.

Why Does It Happen?

The nourishing vitamin D from the sun is accompanied by harmful UV rays that cause skin damage. Using a sunlight protection cream is particularly important regardless of whether you are indoors or outdoors.

How To Treat It?

A good cream for sun protection will contain depigmenting agents like licorice extract, kojic acid, SabiWhite, and nano bright, which not only aid in skin lightening but also undo the damage caused by the harsh UV rays. These components also come with added skin benefits.

To prevent sun damage, use a broad spectrum sunlight protection cream that offers protection from both UVA and UVB light, has a high SPF (Sun Protection Factor) value, and a PA+ rating. A minimum of SPF 30 is recommended. The more plus signs following PA, the higher the UVA protection. PA ++++ offers the most protection while PA + offers the least.

Post Acne Hyperpigmentation

Post Acne Hyperpigmentation

Acne breakouts penetrate the skin, damaging the tissue beneath. Once the breakouts have cleared, the body’s natural response is to repair the damage. This response leads to acne scarring.

Why Does It Happen?

The body attempts to repair the damage left behind by acne breakouts by producing collagen. Insufficient or excess collagen leads to acne scarring.

Too little collagen leads to the formation of depressed acne scars while too much results in raised acne scars.

How To Treat It?

Undergoing appropriate treatment for acne at an early stage, effectively decreases the risk of acne scarring.

Acne scars aren’t permanent and can be treated with home remedies, medical treatments, and natural skin lightening creams like Golite.
