How to deal with hyperpigmentation

Q. What do you recommend for age spots? I never intentionally tan but I notice I'm getting spots on my face I never had before!

A. Yes, very common. It’s called hyperpigmentation or melasma and affects a lot of women because it is mostly a combination of hormones and sun exposure – I got it when I was pregnant. First thing you need to do is get a hat and wear it every time that you are in the sun. You can’t have any exposure. Then, you must scrub every day with something gentle – a good DIY is cornmeal and honey. Just make a small bowl of it and keep it in in the bathroom. You can also buy our Petal Purity Exfoliating Facial Cleanser, the beads are gentle enough for everyday use and it is on sale this month.
