Hand spots: Understand why they appear and how to treat them
Between hair operations, skin care and moisturizing the skin, we often forget to pay attention to the hands. Because it is one of the most exposed areas of the body, it is exposed to several aggressive situations on the skin, and the lack of care for it ends up causing changes in its appearance, such as the appearance of spots.
Hands come into contact with chemicals, detergents, and all types of surfaces almost daily. As for natural factors, it is normal – with age – that the skin suffers from hyperpigmentation and loss of its elasticity and hydration. UV rays cause collagen loss – due to free radicals.
Then, over time, the combination of these factors can lead to dirty hands and an aging appearance. To reverse this situation, it is necessary to adopt special care for the skin of the area, such as exfoliation, moisturizing, using sunscreen, and others.
The Anti-Pigmentation Hands SPF 30 , from Eucerin, for example, has been designed exclusively for the skin of the hands. In addition to maintaining daily care, the product helps fight the signs of aging in the area, especially hyperpigmentation. After all, it is the first hand whitener to be installed on the market.
Its formula contains Thiamidol, which inhibits human tyrosinase – responsible for the biosynthesis of melanin and which in turn is the “causative” of spots – Arctiin, which improves skin elasticity, hyaluronic acid, which improves hydration, Photoprotection with SPF 30, glycerin and shea butter.
With a light, fast-absorbing texture and a light scent, the cosmetics can be used up to four times a day. Since it is used on an area that needs to be disinfected frequently, for the product to take effect, it is best to let it act for at least 10 to 15 minutes after application. After that, periodic hand washing is allowed.
And the effects are guaranteed! An in-use test conducted by the multinational company Beiersdorf, responsible for product development, showed that 98% of participants noticed an improvement in the firmness and elasticity of the hands already in the first two weeks of use, and 95% identified a more even appearance of the skin. Besides these effects, Thiamidol works in parallel to erase stains from the hands.
How does Thiamidol work?
Thiamidol is actively patented by Eucerin, formulated after 10 years of research and testing of over 50,000 molecules. It is the only active ingredient capable of inhibiting human tyrosinase, an enzyme important for the pigment formation process.
This is the main active ingredient in the formulation of the products of the Anti-Pigment Line, which, in addition to Anti-Pigment Hands FPS 30, has an anti-pigmentation day and an anti-pigmentation day. It also contains Anti-Pigment Dual Serum Long and Short Chain Hyaluronic Acid that improves skin hydration, reduces wrinkles and up to 75% of hyperpigmentation.
Thiamidol not only treats, but also prevents the appearance of blemishes. The active complex also has a low irritating capacity, does not cause thinning (the effect of paper clips), acts as a monotherapy and can be used in the sun without the risk of increasing hyperpigmentation areas.
