Hot Summer, Winter Skin Pigmentations Problems

Media Release

Date: 3rd May 2006

Long Hot Summer Leads to Winter Skin Pigmentation Problems

The long hot summer and UV exposure mean that many people are now noticing a worsening of their skin pigmentation problems, according to Janine Tait, skin health specialist at Janesce New Zealand.

Everyone’s skin is more or less naturally coloured by a pigment that protects it from the sun's rays: melanin. During normal cellular renewal, melanin is continuously and evenly distributed throughout the epidermis. But as the years go by, this pigmentation process slowly becomes imbalanced and there is too much or too little melanin. Pigmentation becomes irregular and dark spots appear, particularly on areas most exposed to the sun.

Janine explained: `After summer UV exposure many people are noticing a worsening of their pigmentation problems as we move into winter. Other factors such as pregnancy or taking the contraceptive pill can also cause excessive amounts of pigment to appear in the skin, often, where it is least welcome, on the face, which can be aggravated by excessive exposure to sunlight.’

For both men and women, the skin can be made photo sensitive through the use of some skin care preparations, aftershave lotion or sun care oils. There are various essential oils particularly bergamot and some other citrus oils which have chemicals in them which make the skin photosensitive if used in large amounts.

Janine warned: `There are many whitening products marketed to reduce excess skin pigmentation but research has shown that the active agents used in some these products may build up to toxic amounts in the body. Janesce Shade of Pale products have been developed to offer a complete plant based system of inhibiting melanin production without using harmful chemicals.’

The range is designed to reduce pigmentation problems, lighten blemishes and liver spots and for people who want to have paler skin.

Janesce Shade of Pale products are a progressive skin lightening range created from a blend of alpine herbs. These herbs inhibit the production of melanin in your skin, reduce exposure to UV rays helping to control excessive pigmentation and prevent further sun damage.

Key Points:

- Use the Shade of Pale Complex and Shade of Pale Perfecting Lotion to prevent excessive melanin production.

- Keep out of strong sunlight

- Wear an SPF15 when needed

- Wear sunglasses on as many occasions as possible

- Find out what skin products contain before using them

- Consult a skin health specialist

Janesce skin care products are based on active organics made from pure plant extracts, which feed, nourish and support the skin. These organically-based salon-only products are part of an integrated approach to skin care which combines the pure, potent plant-based range with simple, effective nutritional advice from an experienced team of skin care professionals. Professional-only skin care products are formulated with higher percentages of active ingredients to treat the skin and are often more effective than over the counter preparations.
