How do dark spots appear?
Oxidative stress from UV rays, pollution, and substances like tobacco and alcohol can all affect melanin synthesis, creating an imbalance that results in varying a skin tone.
Can I use this instead of my usual sunscreen when exposed to the sun?
No. This is an anti-dark spot treatment designed to reduce the appearance of dark spots and protect from new ones. It does not offer direct protection from UV rays.
What steps can I take to fight dark spots?
Alongside regular use of this cream, we also recommend adding a high quality sunscreen such as Aphrodite Sunblock Face Cream into your daily routine - even when overcast - to limit oxidative stress.
Does this product work for any skin type?
Yes! As a botanical-based cream, this is a gentle and mildly moisturising formula that can be used on all skin types, including dry, oily, combination, and sensitive skin.
