Freckles prevention and treatment

According to skin experts the freckles prevention is more effective than freckles treatment which include complicated methods (not always very effective). This is why freckles prevention could be very beneficially. Main freckles prevention recommendations include prevention of intensive sun exposure:

Sunscreens with high SPF (sun protection factor) are recommended – never less than 30. Use it every time you go out of the house (especially during summer period);

Wide-brimmed hats should become a part of your fashion style during hot seasons – they can protect your skin from damaging ultraviolet rays;

Body skin should be always protected during day time (especially in hot countries and during summer seasons) – enrich your wardrobe with sun-protective clothing (light shirts, long sleeves, long skirts, long pants);

Most dangerous period for sun exposure and ultraviolet rays is sun peak hours – from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

It is recommended to stay in-door during mentioned period of day.

IPL have a number of different uses, but are mostly used for treating freckles and broken capillaries. Intense Pulsed Light can lighten and remove freckles.

Chemical peels

A chemical peel (sometimes called “chemexfoliation” or “derma peeling”) is one of the least invasive ways to improve the appearance of the skin. Chemical peels are used mostly on the face but sometimes this method can be used on the neck and hands. A chemical peel is a very special technique used to improve and smooth the texture of the skin using a chemical solution that causes the dead skin to slough off and eventually peel off. This method can help lighten freckles and improve irregular pigmentation.
