Skin Whitening-Dark Spots-Skin Bleaching
Even The Most Beautiful Women can have Dark Spots on The Skin or Brown Spots

dark spots are continually developing new products with natural
ingredients to lighten skin pigmentation and get rid of those brown
Belides NP is a water soluble skin-lightening agent derived from the
flowers of Bellis perennis, commonly known as daisies. It helps by lightening skin
pigmentation caused by age and reduces the level of melanin production
in the skin. Melanogenesis and its various pathways are influenced by
Belides. It is listed in the International Nomenclature of Cosmetic
Ingredients as Bellis Perennis Flower Extract. Belides NP decreases
Endothelin-1 (ET-1) production as well as reduces the melanin
biosynthesis stimulated by UV rays. Belides NP contains trace amounts of

Hyperpigmentation occurs to many individuals after they reach middle age, showing up as dark spots on the surface of the skin. Various conditions can cause the development of dark spots
including many forms of agents. Hyperpigmentation can happen after an
inflammation has subsided, like infections caused by acne. Some of the
reasons for dark spots can also be medications that sensitize the skin
to exposure to the sun. Some medications can also be the cause of brown spots
themselves even without the sun exposure factor. Some of these
medications include estrogens, sulfonamides, amiodarone, phenothiazines,
tetracyclines and phenytoin.
Specific forms of dark spots on the face like
melasma, ephelides and solar lentigines-freckles and other damage to the
skin can also be because of UV light exposure. Other diseases and
conditions that can affect the pigmentation of the skin and be the cause
of dark spots are pituitary tumors, pregnancy,
hemachromatosis, liver disease and Addison’s disease. Darkened neck,
arms, underarms, legs and butt and other brown spots on
the skin are considered dirty looking, ugly and unwanted. It affects an
individual’s self-esteem and can be the cause of embarrassment and
withdrawal from an otherwise active social life.
Melanin is the brown pigment responsible for the color of the skin.
When dark deposits are formed in the skin in patches, there is an
overproduction of melanin and oftentimes little patches of skin become
darker than the skin in the area.
Doctors can prescribe bleaching creams for non-elevated dark spots on
the skin using one ounce of 4% hydroquinone cream, .05% tretinoin cream
and a strong sunscreen. Hydroquinone bleaching creams and sunscreen can
be bought without a prescription but tretinoin cream will require a
prescription. An alternative is to use a combination hydroquinone,
glyclolic acid and a sunscreen. This formulation can usually make brown spots fade by applying them two times a day for a few months.
In recent years, milder remedies for bleaching creams have been derived
from natural ingredients including licorice extract, mulberry root,
arbutin, soy and Vitamin C. They are all being used to remove dark
spots. Ageless Derma
offers several anti-aging products and formulations for lightening skin
using natural ingredients to safely help skin get lighter, firmer and younger.
