In this blog,we will explore what alpha arbutin serum is and how it effectively tackles dark spots, leaving you with a brighter, more even complexion you always wished for!

Understanding dark spots

Dark spots are areas of skin that appear darker than the surrounding skin due to an overproduction of melanin, the pigment that gives skin its colour

Some common causes of dark spots are:-

  • Excessive sun exposure:Ultraviolet rays from the sun stimulate the production of melanin, which can lead to the formation of dark spots. Moreover it can also worsen existing dark spots.
  • Hormonal changes: Fluctuations in hormones, such as those that occur during pregnancy, menopause, or while taking birth control pills, can also trigger dark spots.
  • Injuries: Injuries to the skin, such as cuts, scrapes, or pimples, can also lead to dark spots. When the skin is injured, it produces melanin to help heal the wound. This can sometimes lead to the formation of a dark spot.
  • Skin conditions: Certain skin conditions, such as eczema, psoriasis, and lichen planus, can also cause dark spots.
  • Medications: Some medications, such as certain antibiotics and chemotherapy drugs, can also cause dark spots as a side effect.

 How does Alpha arbutin serum work?

Alpha arbutin serum targets the root cause of many dark spots: melanin production. Melanin is the pigment that gives your skin its colour, but sometimes your body produces too much of it in certain areas. This leads to those pesky dark spots we all want to fade.

Here's how Alpha arbutin steps in:

  1. Inhibiting tyrosinase: Tyrosinase enzyme is a key player in melanin production. By inhibiting tyrosinase, alpha arbutin essentially slows down the melanin production in your skin cells.
  2. Less Melanin, Less Darkness: With less melanin being produced, the overall pigmentation of the affected area lightens. This helps fade existing dark spots and prevents new ones from forming.
