Brilio.net - Apart from acne, black spots are also a facial skin problem that can disrupt your appearance and reduce your self-confidence. This facial skin problem usually appears in various forms, ranging from small spots to dark colored patches that tend to be blackish brown. Because of this, the face looks dull and has an uneven color.

The appearance of black spots is generally triggered by excessive sun exposure. Exposure to UV rays can stimulate melanocyte cells in the skin to produce melanin (skin pigment) as part of the skin's natural protective mechanism. As a result, when the skin is exposed to excessive sunlight, the melanin that is formed will accumulate in the top layer of the skin to become annoying black spots .

Black spots usually appear on people who often do outdoor activities. Not only are they exposed to sunlight, their faces also become vulnerable to being covered in sticky pollution. Therefore, it is not surprising that these black spots make the face dark and lose its natural brightness.

Low awareness of using sunscreen is the reason why black spots on the face are difficult to disappear. In fact, applying sunscreen every morning after you have finished applying facial skin care products is very effective in preventing the appearance of black spots.

Of course, it cannot be denied that the problems above can reduce a person's self-confidence. For this reason, the right solution is needed to overcome this, for example by using natural ingredients as an alternative solution.

One way is to use a mixture of roses with rice and aloe vera, as shared by @beautywithsunanda0795 on Instagram, reported by briliobeauty.net on Wednesday (15/5).
