What is NIVEA Luminous and how does it work?
NIVEA Luminous630 products are developed by our team of skincare experts to safely fade dark spots and help prevent future pigmentation. Working at a cell level, NIVEA Luminous products are aiming to target the root cause of the issue, with a dual action:
- Works on areas with high melanin level to lighten the spots
- With a consistent usage, it regulates the production of melanin to prevent new dark spots from showing up.
What are dark spots and how do they appear?
Dark spots, otherwise known as pigment spots, are a discolouration of the skin caused by an extra production of melanin. There are 4 reasons why dark spots may develop on your skin:
1. Excess sun exposure without SPF
2. Hormonal Imbalance
4. Post acne/skin inflammation
Sun Exposure: you can be subject to developing dark spots on your skin as a result of exposure to the sun or tanning beds which also generate UV lights. These spots are also known as liver spots, solar lentigines, or sunspots.
Sun spots are most likely to appear on parts of the body which are exposed to the sun the most, such as the face, hands, or arms.
Hormonal Imbalance: little areas of skin discolouration are a symptom of the skin condition called melasma. Women are more likely to have this condition, particularly during pregnancy. This is generally due to a high level of oestrogen compared to a low level of progesterone, which will drive higher levels of skin pigmentation.
Age: closely linked to sun exposure, age spots are produced by melanin, a natural pigment that is produced more quickly in response to ultraviolet (UV) light. Age spots develop on skin which has been exposed to the sun for a longer period of time, when melanin gathers or is created in large quantities.
Post Acne/Skin Inflammation: dark spots, also known as post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH), are not necessarily scars. They are melanin-rich purple or dark spots that develop once your acne has cleared up and can occasionally remain longer than the acne itself. Luminous630 can help you target those spots to lighten them and balance the colours of your skin.
