Removing brown spots on hands: prevention above all

If you’re looking for natural ways to remove brown spots on your hands… The best of all is to prevent the appearance of these marks (when possible).

Hand stains can have different causes:

  1. Age (these are “age spots”) that cause melanin accumulation on the hands;
  2. The sun, because UV rays are the worst enemies of the skin. They can damage the skin barrier and cause hyperpigmentation;
  3. A hormonal imbalance;
  4. Tobacco can cause premature skin aging and increase free radical circulation.

External aggressions such as pollution and ultraviolet rays accelerate skin aging and thus the formation of brown spots on the top of the hand.

Note that age spots are natural. They appear with the oxidation of the epidermis. You cannot fight against the marks of time indefinitely. Nevertheless, you can reduce brown spots with good habits and controlled sun exposure.

A tip to blur your brown hand spots: protect your skin with sunscreen EVERY TIME you go out.

Exfoliate to regenerate the epidermis and reduce pigment spots

A brown spot is formed because of the accumulation of melanin, which is the pigment of the skin. It forms on the surface of the dermis. A tip to remove brown spots would be to bet on a regular exfoliation of the epidermis.

A light scrub, once or twice a week depending on your skin type, promotes cell regeneration of skin tissues. In other words, a peeling will erase dead skin to make «new skin».

Exfoliating regularly with the Exfoliating Dermo Cosmetic Soap from the Disco range to combat hyperpigmentation helps reduce brown spots on the hands.

Moisturize your skin morning and evening

Hydration is the key to beautiful skin. If you want to maintain the elasticity of your dermis and preserve it from skin aging, consider moisturizing it. You can use a moisturizer or a two-in-one milk.

This is what we offer with the Moisturizing Unifying Milk designed to remove pigment spots and brighten the complexion. This anti-stain treatment is also effective against inflammation and dry skin. It can therefore be effective when you have a fine and fragile skin texture, dander, redness…

Dry skin of the hands can occur over time. The loss of sebum and the decrease of lipids in the skin barrier cause this drying of the skin. Moisturizing your hands daily helps to strengthen the hydrolipidic film, but also to make the skin soft and more flexible.

Hydrated skin and protected skin. It is therefore more effective in combating external aggressions such as the sun which can cause brown spots on the hands.

Follow a dermatological treatment to remove brown spots on the hands

If cosmetic products are ineffective or insufficient to remove brown spots on the hands, you can always make an appointment with a dermatologist. This skin specialist can offer you more intense medical treatments such as:

  • chemical peeling that removes the upper layers of the skin;
  • laser therapy to treat deep brown spots.

Note that it is important to consult a dermatologist to be able to make an accurate diagnosis and personalized advice, especially if brown spots change shape, size or color.

Take care of your lifestyle

The main factors of brown spots on the hands are age and sun. To prevent their appearance, you can apply sun protection every time you expose yourself outdoors.

As for age, it is your lifestyle that will reduce the impact of cellular oxidation and skin aging. Take care of yourself daily by practicing regular physical activity, avoiding tobacco and alcohol, but also by having a healthy and varied diet, rich in fruits and vegetables to stock up on vitamins and minerals.

Cosmetic treatments complete your lifestyle. If you consume junk food every day, smoke a lot, all without exercising, all the lightening creams in the world will not be enough to successfully remove brown spots on your hands.

Take care of yourself and your body will give it back!
