The Summertime for many, presents a time to get a tan which, we know, there is no such thing as a healthy or safe tan! For many it is also about sun-safety and protection as it is the season where we accumulate the most sun damage including sun burning, pigmentation and premature skin ageing. With Summer now gone, the hyper-pigmentation from all that sunshine is still lingering and showing more than ever. Winter is definitely the best and safest time to treat such skin hyperpigmentation issues and is it is also the best time for the skin recovery process. This blog will tell you everything you need to know about pigmentation, its causes, how to effectively treat it and why winter is the ideal time to do so! 


Also known as skin discoloration, sunspots, hyperpigmentation, liver spots, dark spots and age spots, pigmentation is caused by an increase in melanin production. Melanin is a substance in the body that gives our skin its pigment and the more melanin you produce, the darker your skin will be. 

It all starts at the bottom of our epidermis (top layer of the skin), where we have skin cells called Melanocytes. Once these cells are activated, they produce melanin. Melanin travels all the way up the epidermis and creates a skin pigment (colour). When we get too much sun exposure to the skin, we get an overloading of these melanin pigment cells that causes skin darkening (tan). Often, these pigment cells are unevenly produced, and clump together, rising to the surface of the skin creating a noticeable sun patch/spot – found on the face, chest, arms, and hands. 

Melanocytes are activated by exposure to the sun’s Ultra-Violet Rays, but they can also be activated by scarring and inflammation, laser treatments, certain medications, hormones like estrogen and pollution.


Here are the main reasons why winter is the ideal season for treating and reducing pigment-induced skin damage. 

  • A reduction to sun exposure: While you can still sustain sun damage in the Winter months, Ultraviolet (UV) levels are lower at this time of year because the earth tilts away from the sun. Winter is the time of year where we tend to spend more time indoors and it also brings us shorter days, meaning we are less likely to be exposure to the sun. 
  • A reduction of your summer-induced tan: During the winter months, your tan has paled, and your skin has rebalanced its natural colouring , which allows treatments to work at peak performance. 
  • Enhanced treatment effectiveness: When you are using more ‘active’ ingredients on your skin to tackle pigmentation, the skin can become more sensitive and excessive sun exposure to more fragile skin is not a good idea. This makes Winter the perfect time of year to spend time on overall skin rejuvenation and recovery. 


    • Vitamin C: Known to be one of the most effective treatments to reduce the appearance of pigmentation and enhance skin radiance. Topical Vitamin C reduces melanin by inhibiting the action of tyrosinase, an enzyme that controls melanin production. Vitamin C is also a strong antioxidant that provides protection against UV free radical damage and acts as a cellular anti-inflammatory. 
    • AHA’s: Mostly found in foods, the most common AHA’s come the following sources: Glycolic acid (sugar), Malic acid (from apples) Citric acid (citrus fruits) and Lactic acid (from milk products/lactose). AHA’s are natural water-soluble acids that work on the very top layer of the skin to gently exfoliate thereby removing surface dead skin cells and old pigmentation. Additionally, they allow for a deeper penetration of other skincare products. 
  • Liquorice: Liquorice root extract helps to both brighten the appearance of skin discolouration while also dispersing melanin to prevent sunspots from arising. 
    • Broad Spectrum SPF: Prevention is always better than a cure and we are still not fully protected from the sun on colder, more overcast days. It is important to continue to wear sunscreen all year around especially when the UV factor is high or when your skin is more vulnerable from active skin treatments.
