Age of Enlightenment
AS PEOPLE AGE, THEIR SKIN TENDS TO MOVE toward the dark side, meaning it begins to show signs of hyperpigmentation, sun damage, and an all-around lackluster appearance due to stress, pollution, an unhealthy lifestyle, and more. According to Janel Luu, CEO of Le Mieux and PurErb, the epidermis, also known as the top layer of skin, has melanocyte cells, which produce a pigment referred to as melanin. It determines skintone and helps protect skin against harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays. However, due to the abnormal production of melanin by the melanocytes, skin discoloration occurs.
