As we begin to approach the festive winter holidays, the days become shorter and the temperate gets colder. These two seasonal factors create special needs and special opportunities for your skin. This time of year offers opportunities to keep our skin in optimal health while also allowing us to focus on improving its appearance – specifically reducing hyperpigmentation or “dark spots”.

The skin is subjected to extra stress during extreme temperature changes going from the warm air indoors to the very cold, dry air outdoors. The skin’s normal function is to shed dead skin cells in a cycle – a cycle slows as we age. Which is why sometimes, “dark spots” are called “age spots”. In the colder months it’s vital to exfoliate so the new skin cells can more easily absorb vital moisturizers to help keep it nourished and hydrated. This will allow the skin to keep vital moisture trapped inside, with the skin appears more luminous and firm. Liquid Luffa is an ideal exfoliating scrub. It offers a gentle glycolic acid and enzyme chemical exfoliation to break down the glue that binds the dead skin cells. It also offers manual exfoliation with Ecobeads to help whisk away dead skin cells. This process enhances the cell turnover cycle, bringing fresh new cells to the skin surface allowing the skin to function optimally.

The shorter, colder days of winter mean we spend fewer hours outdoors exposed to the harmful rays of the sun. This creates a special opportunity, it’s an ideal time of year to focus on treating Hyperpigmentation or “dark spots” with more frequent exfoliation. By speeding up the cell renewal cycle, cells that are discolored are whisked away and replaced by even toned skin. The process can be enhanced with the application of Chromabright® which is contained in Lumen8 lotion, a patented skin brightening agent that will help reduce the appearance of dark spots.
