Hyperpigmentation is when there are vague dark spots on your skin. These patches can occur anywhere, but hyperpigmentation is generally on the face, back, shoulders, arms and legs - where the sun sees you more. Of course, this can occur elsewhere.

There are many causes, such as excessive exposure to the sun, which can damage the skin. However, avoiding the sun is not the answer. Instead, it is associated with a wide range of health problems, from vitamin D deficiency, hormonal imbalances, thyroid dysfunction to sleep problems. So don't avoid the sun, enjoy it at all times!

You can do a lot with food to prevent hyperpigmentation. In addition, you should tan with toxin-free sunscreens or oils. Most sunscreens on sale contain a lot of toxins that are absorbed into your skin and bloodstream and that the sun burns into your skin, so to speak. It can also cause hyperpigmentation of the skin.

I will share with you tips on how to prevent hyperpigmentation both internally and externally.

Enjoy the sun healthily and use suitable oils or creams on the skin

If you choose sunscreen, make sure that it says on the packaging it's vegan, eco/organic and that it does not contain toxins. If there are no such keywords, you are most likely to get micro-poisoning. We were born under the sun without a bottle of sunscreen, so there are actually all the tools in nature to help us live healthily in the sun. Many plants can protect your skin, so choose sunscreen made from plant-based ingredients.

If we use commercial, fragrant and strong sunscreens, the toxins in them can have a devastating effect on our bodies. It also begins to manifest on the skin.

Hyperpigmentation cannot be prevented without the use of protective equipment. This is a natural ageing process that can be easily slowed down and reduced. Our genetics and skin tone also plays an important role here. The lighter the skin, the greater the chance of getting this problem.

100% natural sun protections that create protection layers on the skin are avocado, jojoba, grapeseed, sweet almond, macadamia, coconut and olive oil.

Vitamins and minerals that help prevent hyperpigmentation. Their deficiency in the body can accelerate the formation of brown spots on the skin and promote overall skin ageing.

Does food play a role in the appearance of the skin? Yes, of course. This is one of the biggest influences ever. Your skin needs to protect the body from external factors. In order to do this, you need to provide your body with foods rich in vitamins and minerals.

Today, it is very difficult to get the number of nutrients from the food that our bodies actually need. Therefore, it is very beneficial to consume supplements if they are vegan, organic and made without preservatives. Most people have deficiencies in many different substances in the body that they are not aware of.

In order to prevent hyperpigmentation or to help reduce the brown spots that have already formed, i.e. to reduce their prominence, make sure that you consume these vitamins and minerals: Zinc, vitamin B12, vitamin C, vitamin B1, vitamin B2, vitamin B6, vitamin A, vitamin E, carotenoids, antioxidants.

You have the chance to buy them from LA TENE stores whether as multivitamins or minerals, separately B complex vitamins or superfood mixtures or Ayurvedic plants.

Some of the best foods to consume to prevent hyperpigmentation are:

Kale, sweet potato, walnuts, parsley, avocado, different seeds, water, lime, grapefruit, pomelo, orange, lemon, different berries, pumpkin, lentils, tomato, chickpeas, peas and beans. Consume them all year round, but especially when you want to enjoy the sun or sunbathe.

Remember! All non-organic vegetables and fruits contain hormone-mimicking substances, pesticides and herbicides. They contribute to the development of hyperpigmentation. Thus, there is a big difference between tomato and tomato. You will find tomatoes in the greenhouse at your grandmothers, which is most likely good for you, but not in the shops unless they are listed as organic. Choose food in the shops consciously, invest in your health. It will benefit you!

One of the worst foods that promote hyperpigmentation

I also bring out those foods that love to create sunspots on your body, because there are secret pathogens that easily erase the youthfulness and beautiful radiance of your skin.

These include, for example, all animal dairy products, including butter, yoghurt, cheeses, etc. Animal dairy products already have an anti-inflammatory effect by nature, helping the skin to age faster. In addition, it is very difficult for the human digestive system to digest animal dairy products, making it more difficult for vitamins and minerals to be absorbed. In addition, they often contain hormones that also damage your hormonal body. Women are particularly sensitive to animal dairy products, leading to many gynaecological diseases.

The next enemy of the skin is sugar. It causes hyperpigmentation, causing inflammation in the skin. Too salty, spicy and GMO soy products are also very harmful. Soy is eaten only as GMO-free and as an organic product. Follow the marking on the product!

Avoid caffeinated beverages or significantly reduce caffeine intake. It produces the stress hormone cortisol in the body, which also has an inflammatory effect. 

The sun can also cause white spots, which are prevented by the same recommendations.

Let your skin shine and breathe and look beautiful and youthful!
