Contrary to popular belief, sunscreens are necessary even in the rain and winter time ... so remember, "come rain or sun" ... sunscreen protection is a must! Remember too, that "freckles are the body's warning signs of sun damage already taking place in children. Teach them to practice "safe sun" when they are young so they learn to prevent sun damage. It often takes 20 years from the first sun burn to start showing up as skin cancer, skin tags, melasma, age spots, wrinkles and fine lines, broken blood vessels in the skin, loss of skin firmness, poor healing abilities and more. Applying a good sunscreen is essential for protection from sun damage. So, this is one area where your cosmetic budget should be stretched because it is for the health of your skin! Read the labels on the products you purchase very carefully screening out products that contain ingredients like parabens, fragrance or perfume and others listed by Health Canada. For pregnant women and children it would be safer to ensure that the mosquito repellant with DEET is not applied to skin that also has sun screen containing Avobenzone, Oxybenzone or Octinoxate because there could be a toxic and possibly deep penetrating chemical response to the mixture.
While anti-pigmentation treatment results are not rapid, they can be achieved with patience , perseverance and avoidance of tanning and/or excessive sun exposure. It can take between 4 - 6 months of professional treatments and home care for the skin color to come back to "normal".
