Assisting with body acne & dark spots
Commonly referred to as "sun spots", "age spots" or "dark spots", these small-large patches of discolorations or brown spots on the skin are accumulations of pigment which are most commonly due to unprotected sun exposure and other environmental insults.
Scratching and touching your pimples can also aggravate and distress the spots leading to what is known as post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation. This refers to discoloration of the skin that follows an inflammatory wound or spot. It is the skin's natural response to inflammation.
Dark spots on the face are extremely stubborn but with the right tender loving care, you can fade their appearance completely.
For dark marks, including old acne scars, or body hyperpigmentation we recommend using products that contain evening primrose oil as it has strong anti-inflammatory properties. These properties are essential for evening your skin texture, skin tone and skin complexion. It also works well for preventing body acne and blemishes on the skin. The omega-6 fatty acid in evening primrose, plus other fatty acids and a range of antioxidants led by vitamin E, work to balance skin’s reactive tendencies, calming its surface to reveal a smooth, even, and younger appearance.
Products containing evening primrose oil include Luxury Body Butter and our Luxury Calendula Body Oil and Facial Oil to maintain the skin’s colour and distribution of melanin pigment for discoloured skin, hyperpigmentation under arms, elbows, underarms and bikini line.
We also recommend using Luxury Body Butter to counter hyperpigmentation on the inner thighs, arms, elbows, underarm, bikini line and care for dry skin and cracked heels. This beauty is whipped in small batches using organic and natural ingredients: Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter)*, Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis (Sweet Almond) Oil*, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil*, Oenothera Biennis (Evening Primrose) Oil*, Tocopherol (Vitamin E)** *Organic, **100% Natural, GM-free.
Almond oil is also great for improving complexion and skin tone due to its emollient properties to improve both complexion and skin tone.
