What causes dark spots?
Dark spots or skin discoloration is caused by an excess of melanin, the natural pigment that gives color to the skin. This can have any number of causes such as UV exposure, post inflammatory hyperpigmentation or scarring post breakouts, hormonal fluctuations or aging. But don’t worry they are easy to cover if and when you want to and Dermablend has a range of formulas that can both cover and protect your skin.
How do you get rid of dark spots?
Because the causes of dark spots are varied the treatment should be tailored. Speak to your board certified dermatologist about how to both treat and prevent dark spots. They can help you navigate the benefits of topicals & exfoliants or more advanced treatment plans. In the meantime, you can enjoy instant coverage by choosing the right coverage product. Dermablend’s Skin Security Standards means that they are safe on any skin type, tone, and condition and can be a great partner to an ongoing skincare routine.
How can I cover larger dark spots?
Covering large areas of dark spots is simple with Dermablend. There are a few options to choose from depending on your skin type, preferred finish and how you like to wear your makeup. For larger areas of coverage a foundation is the simplest one-step solution. We recommend either Flawless Creator or Cover Crème. Flawless Creator is a zero-weight full coverage liquid foundation that has 33% high performance pigment so it’s amazing for instant coverage that feels like a second skin. It’s oil- and water- free so you can also add drops directly to your favorite sunscreen. Safe sun practices are an integral part of protecting your skin so that makes flawless creator a great choice. Cover Crème is perfect for those with dry and dehydrated skin who like to have their SPF included in the formula. The foundation has 40% high performance pigments and can cover extensive hyperpigmentation and even vitiligo with ease. Its inbuilt SPF 30 with zero flashback means you are always covered and protected.
How can I cover smaller dark spots?
Targeted coverage for smaller dark spots is best tackled by a Concealer. This allows you to cover exactly where you like and blend naturally into your foundation or bare skin. Cover Care Concealer is perfect for targeted coverage. Its 30% high performance pigment means you get a lot of coverage with very little product. The XL applicator has a pointed tip and angled edge so you can alternate between precision and quickly covering a larger area. Its 24h wear and care in a creamy waterproof formula also means your coverage stays in place all day. Quick Fix Concealer is a creamy stick applicator concealer that can cover in one swipe. It’s a must for dry and dehydrated skin types and great for coverage on the go.
How do you prevent dark spots?
One of the key factors in protecting your skin long term from dark spots created by sun exposure is to incorporate sun protection into your everyday skin care routine. Remember that exposure can happen on cloudy days and indoors through windows, so sun protection should be a part of your routine all day every day. By choosing a foundation that you can mix with your spf like Flawless Creator, or by choosing a foundation with inbuilt protection like Cover Crème you are protecting while you cover.
