Why do spots appear on men's faces?

As we get older, the skin processes become slower and more inefficient, the appearance of spots on men's faces due to the sun is nothing more than a sign that the skin accumulates melanin and is not able to eliminate it at the right pace.

How do spots appear on men's faces?

Melanin, which is made to protect us from radiation that accumulates unevenly, can cause spots to appear on lighter faces (hypopigmentation) and on those skins that no longer produce it properly, causing an uneven tone.

Sun spots on men´s faces and on the chest, produced by the passage of time, are the result of excessive melanin production, known as hyperpigmentation, on the face, hands, neck and chest.

Unlike freckles, which appear in people of all ages, these types of spots usually appear after the age of 40 and are associated with skin aging and sun damage.

There are different types of spots on the face, also in men, in younger skins appear nice freckles, which over time can turn into spots.

Men without hair accumulate a lot of radiation in the area of the head, being very frequent the spots on the skin of this area, in other cases protected by the hair.

In men, spots also appear on the chest area, shoulders... Because, even if we protect the face, it is common for men to still want to be tanned in summer.

Facial treatments for spots on men's faces can be applied to the neck and chest area.

How to treat and prevent the appearance of sun spots on men's faces?

In the case of sun spots on a man's face, it is essential to incorporate an exfoliator into your beauty routine to remove the outermost layers of the skin.

Above all, it is beneficial to use products against the three most visible signs of aging caused by the sun: wrinkles, loss of firmness and spots. You already know that skin has a memory effect, so it is best to treat it before age spots appear on the skin.

Protecting your skin on a daily basis, not just in summer, and avoiding sunbathing with the intention of getting a tan, is key if your concern is dark skin spots caused by the sun.

Incorporate active ingredients into your nighttime routine that accelerate the skin processes that slow down over the years, so that you have an adequate rate of renewal and your skin is able to self-regenerate and not accumulate excess melanin.

In the morning, incorporate treatment products with antioxidants such as vitamin C, vitamin E or niacinamide (vitamin B3).
