Natural cosmetics against pigment spots and acne scars

Pigment spots are caused by certain skin cells called melanocytes, which produce the skin pigment or melanin. Melanin is a natural UV protection and ensures our tan. If an excessive amount of melanin forms in some areas, spots appear. There are various triggers that can promote an overproduction of melanin: These include, above all, sunlight, predisposition, hormonal influences, aging processes and injuries or inflammation of the skin. In natural cosmetics there are various active ingredients that can help to reduce hyperpigmentation and even out skin tone. These include AHA and BHA fruit acids, retinol / vitamin A, bakuchiol, vitamin C, niacinamide or bisabolol. And very important: consistent sun protection.
