Why does pigmentation occur? |
Uneven pigmentation affects most people, regardless of ethnic background or skin color. Skin may either appear lighter or darker than normal; there may be blotchy, uneven areas, patches of brown to gray discoloration or freckling. Skin pigmentation disorders occur because the body produces either too much or too little melanin. Melanin is the pigment produced by melanocyte cells. It is triggered by an enzyme called tyrosinase, which creates the color of skin, eyes, and hair shades.
Melanin has two major forms that combine to create varying skin tones. Eumelanin produces a range of brown skin and hair color, while pheomelanin imparts a yellow to reddish hue.
Melanin provides some amount of sun protection for the skin by absorbing ultraviolet light. Darker skin colors are less susceptible to sunburn and the overall effects of sun damage.
Aside from sun exposure and hormones, hyperpigmentation can be caused by skin damage, such as remnants of blemishes, wounds or rashes. This is especially true for those with darker skin tones.
The most typical cause of darkened areas of skin, brown spots or areas of discoloration is unprotected sun exposure. Once incorrectly referred to as liver spots, these pigment problems are not connected with the liver.
Benefits of Sunscreen
Sunscreen is a product used to protect the skin from ultraviolet rays, to avoid damage and/or darkening of the skin. Some sunscreens can be used to lighten the skin, too. Higher SPFs contain greater quantities of the UVA-protecting ingredients titanium dioxide, zinc oxide or avobenzone.
Doctor Secret Sunscreen SPF 25 helps prevent premature skin ageing and defend complexion against unwanted pigmentation by providing skin protection against the damaging effects of sun UVA/UVB rays. This moisturising sunscreen also hydrates the skin to enhance cell renewal.
Skin lightening Ingredients - How it works
Doctor Secret Skinlight T3 uses Kojic acid in its formulation. Kojic acid is a by-product in the fermentation process of malting rice for use in the manufacturing of sake, the Japanese rice wine. Research shows kojic acid to be effective for inhibiting melanin production.
Another ingredient used is Arbutin. Arbutin is derived from the leaves of bearberry, cranberry, mulberry or blueberry shrubs, and also is present in most types of pears. It prevents formation of melanin and drastically reduces pigmentation.
No hydroquinone (bleaching agent) is included due to adverse harmful effects. Only vitamins and plant extracts are used in the natural skin lightening formulation.
Skin Reconditioning for Skin Cell Renewal
Doctor Secret Skin Reconditioning T4 completes the skin treatment program. It pushes out impurities on the skin surface such as pigmentation, dark spots and scar tissue to reveal new skin below. The natural formulation is gentle on the skin and suitable for all skin types.
Together, Doctor Secret Skinlight T3 and Skinrecon T4 work perfectly to lighten and renew your skin.
DR's Secret is very popular in tropical countries for its ability to lighten and prevent melanin production in the skin.

About Doctor Secret
ď15 years ago, a virus attack left me blinded. When I recovered my eyesight a year later, I was horrified to find the ugly pigmentation on my face. It took only 1 month of using DRís Secret to see an improvement. And within 9 months, my pigmentation ceased almost totally! Iím resolved to stick to DRís Secret for life!Ē
