SUMMER BEAUTY SOS
Nutritional therapist for the Advanced Nutrition Programme, Lorraine Perretta, gives advice on how to prevent pigmentation.
“Melanin is produced by melanocytes and gives skin its colour, protecting skin from UV radiation. When skin is exposed to the sun, the melanocytes start to make melanin. But when skin is over exposed, too much melanin can be produced, resulting in pigmentation or sunspots. Limit further damage by minimising your exposure to sunlight, …especially in the middle of the day.”
