However, the damage to the skin caused by UV rays can be improved to some extent with food, so please refer to it if you are interested.
Causes of spots and freckles
Properties of the skin: The skin is composed of layers such as “epidermis”, “dermis”, “subcutaneous tissue” from the outside, but when it is exposed to ultraviolet rays, cells called melanocytes in the “epidermis” are called black pigment called melanin. And scatter on surrounding epidermal cells. This is an action to protect the skin from ultraviolet rays, and if the metabolism of skin cells is active, the cells containing melanin will also peel off as dirt.
Causes of spots and freckles… When melanin is overproduced or the metabolism rhythm is disturbed by exposure to a large amount of ultraviolet rays for a long period of time, melanin remains in the epidermis and collects and becomes a stain.
Causes of spots…aging, melanin pigment deposition
Freckle factor…Aging, melanin pigment deposition ※It is considered that there are many genetic factors.
