WHY A CONTINUOUS MORNING ROUTINE IS SO IMPORTANT FOR MELASMA
Melasma is a specific form of hyperpigmentation and often occurs in women during and after pregnancy. Only a tenth of those affected are men. Pigment spots are caused by the overproduction of the hormone melanin, which is responsible for the coloring of our hair, eyes and skin. Visible, dark discolorations occur mainly on the face.
There are internal and external influencing factors that favor the development of pigment spots:
- Exposure to the sun
Your skin is exposed to harmful UVA and UVB rays every day. They are the main cause for the visible discoloration of your skin. This is why pigment spots usually appear on areas of the face and body that are particularly exposed to the sun.
Melasma can also be a genetic trait that is a part of you from when you are born. Congenital pigment spots include freckles, birthmarks, and moles.
- Hormonal changes
Melasma often develops during hormonal changes in pregnancy. That is why one often speaks of so-called pregnancy mask. Melasma can also develop from taking birth control pills or from hormone replacement therapy.
After inflammation of or injuries to the skin, darkening usually occurs as a result of scarring. This also includes pimple marks and acne scars.
But don't worry: melasma is harmless in most cases and has no negative impact on your health. If the visual flaw still bothers you, you can lighten and significantly reduce pigment spots on your face using various methods.

Spread a small amount CLEAN all over your face in the morning, including the eye area. Wet your hands and massage the gentle cleansing gel into your skin in circular movements for 2–3 minutes. This frees your skin from excess sebum, sweat and dirt. Then wash your face with warm water and use a clean towel to dry it off.
You use after cleansing, use PEEL. To do this, spread a small amount of it on dry, cleansed skin. Massage it into your face with wet fingertips in circular movements for 2-3 minutes. Then rinse your skin with warm water to remove the peeling residue. PEEL is a natural product and therefore particularly gentle on the skin. Even if your skin suffers from pigment disorders, you can safely use this product every day.

After you have successfully followed the care steps, your skin is after for the day. For a permanently healthy complexion, you will find further recommendations below.
How do I know if and what type of melasma I have?
There are different types of melasma which can be divided into:
- Epidermal melasma: This affects the top layer of skin (epidermis), the discoloration is brown and its area is clearly limited.
- Dermal melasma: This affects the deeper layer of the skin (dermis) and is characterized by a blue-gray color.
- Combined melasma: This mixed form affects the upper and lower layers of the skin and has a brownish-gray color.
By classifying your melasma correctly, you can adapt your care routine more specifically to the needs of your skin. Note: Always keep an eye on your hyperpigmentation! If the size, shape or color of a pigment spot changes, if it bleeds or even becomes infected, you should consult a dermatologist to rule out a malignant change.
With melasma, continuous care is essential. Pigment spots often appear overnight and unfortunately don't go away as quickly. In order to effectively treat skin discoloration and develop a demonstrably better complexion, it is necessary that you take the time to follow a daily morning routine.
Never without sun protection
Photodamage can occur whenever our skin is exposed to natural UVA and UVB rays. Brownish spots and irregular pigmentation are caused by an overproduction of the hormone melanin. The myth that it is only necessary to use sun protection factor when the sun is shining has long been debunked. Harmful UVA and UVB rays accompany us every day, regardless of the weather. Therefore, the consistent use of sun protection should always be part of your morning care routine.
FAQ: FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT THE MORNING ROUTINE FOR MELASMA & PIGMENT SPOTS
Here you will find specific answers to the frequently asked questions about the morning routine for melasma & pigment spots.
Does Retinol help in treating melasma and other pigment spots?
Is melasma dangerous?
In most cases, melasma is not dangerous. The small, discolored areas on your face or on your body can have various causes and are usually harmless. However, if you have any concerns, you can see a dermatologist to make sure that visible pigment spots are not of a malicious nature. Nevertheless, it is always advisable to observe the discolored areas in order to be able to recognize changes early on.
Does makeup affect the color of pigment spots?
The use of make-up that helps you to hide the unwanted spots has no influence on the formation of them. For removing make-up, we recommend using a gentle care product to avoid unnecessary skin irritation, such as our cleansing gel CLEAN, which even reliably removes eye make-up.
Can melasma also be permanently removed?
Laser treatment is considered to be the most effective method to permanently remove pigment spots such as melasma. The rays of the laser penetrate the upper layer of the skin and break down the pigment deposits into small particles. The extent of melasma is minimized directly. If a single laser session is not enough, the treatment must be repeated. You can find a cheaper and gentler alternative if you consistently follow our care routines for melasma and other pigment spots.
Can I also do the morning care routine for melasma in the evening?
We recommend following the melasma evening routine in the evening. The needs of your skin change over the course of the day, so you should also provide your skin with other ingredients and product formulations for daily care in the evening. This way, your skin can regenerate itself optimally and promote its renewal more intensively overnight.
Does consciously eating help in preventing melasma?
Healthy skin thanks to nutrition? Definitly, since our eating habits have a great influence on our natural complexion. A conscious diet is generally recommended for every skin type. Eating fresh, unprocessed foods that are high in antioxidants, unsaturated fats, and minerals can help you get glowing and healthy skin. In addition to a balanced diet, our skin also needs a sufficient amount of water. It cleanses the body and also helps the skin to excrete harmful substances.
