If blemishes, freckles, and pigmentation is your skin concern, you might be looking at thousands of different causes & treatment remedies.
Blemishes can include any kind of skin marks or discolouration on the skin including acne, age spots, melasma, scars, freckles and hyperpigmentation. These discolourations are caused or worsened by hormone changes, incorrect acne care, and sun exposure. Especially in countries like New Zealand where UV rays are stronger than others, you need to make sure you’re wearing the appropriate amount of sunscreen at all times to avoid the chance of blemishes.
Most pigmented acne scars will naturally go away in 2-3 months with a proper skincare routine. Nonetheless, once freckles or melasma root down it may be difficult to fade them in a short period of time. This is why prevention is the most important - on a rule of thumb, two fingers worth is how much sunscreen you should be using for your face and your neck every day. When you do have blemishes, it’s best to fix up your lifestyle habits to encourage the best of your skin’s healing abilities. Drink plenty of water, moisturise, and always be in bed 10 PM - 2 AM, when the skin repairs itself - and maybe throw in a brightening serum in your routine!
