October is the perfect month to talk about stains on the upper lip "in the mustache" or what is the same, melasma .
The face is the area most exposed to solar radiation and, therefore, it is the most prone to spots appearing.
Stains are of particular concern to us, they are a tough opponent and a complete background job, they are difficult to treat and also make us look older. Also when they appear on the face and especially on the upper lip, things are a little more complicated.
Melasma is called light and dark brown facial hyperpigmentation, which develops slowly and symmetrically. It predominates in the female sex and is related to cosmetic hormonal factors, sun exposure and genetic inheritance. It is caused by an excessive production of melanin by melanocytes.
This is the name of that brown stain that appears on the upper lip, cheeks and forehead.
Although the mustache area is not more prone than other areas of the face to appear this type of spots, the fact that they appear right on the upper lip, tends to further increase the concern of those who suffer from them, with dark people being more prone .
However, we would like to give you good news, they can be prevented and minimized.
For María D'uol, prevention is essential, in addition to using products with active ingredients that prevent their appearance, we must avoid the sun, and if we are exposed, we must apply products with high protection to protect the skin from solar radiation.

Extrem Color : Color protector, indicated to prevent all skin reactions due to sun exposure: pregnancy spots, allergies and sun intolerances, photosensitization and scars.
Facial Sun Cream SPF50 + : SPF 50+ sun cream from the María D'uol sun protection line, an innovation in the comprehensive treatment of the damage caused by solar radiation on our skin, as it protects us against the well-known UVA radiation and UVB.
