Dark spots and uneven skin tone happen to everyone, regardless of age or skin type.

The ideal kind of facial cleanser is one that maintains your skin’s natural moisture, doing its job to remove dirt, makeup and excess oil, while not drying out the skin. Look for a soap-free, fragrance-free, gentle cleanser like Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser or Cetaphil Gentle Foaming Cleanser. And be sure not to over-wash, as this can lead to dryness and irritation. Cleansing your face once in the morning and once in the evening should be enough.

Dark spots, or hyperpigmentation, is a condition in which skin is darker than normal. It can occur on the face or body. Initially, it may be a small spot but if left untreated it may increase in size or number. Where do dark spots come from? The answer is closer than you think.


4 main causes of dark spots. Know them and prevent them.

1. Sunlight: UV rays are your worst enemy because they produce dark spots on skin. We cannot avoid UV rays entirely because we have to go outside and live each day. In tropical Thailand, the risk of dark spots is even higher, especially if we don't protect our skin and nourish it properly.

2. Air pollution: Dust, PM2.5, smoke, vehicle exhaust, steam and pollen all irritate skin. For people with sensitive skin, these factors make skin weak, irritable, allergic or inflamed, and can result in dark spots or uneven skin tones.

3. Inflammation: This is the main cause of dark spots on the skin, such as acne scars. When skin is exposed to sunlight or pollution, or when we take certain medications, our skin can become inflamed at the cellular level. Dark spots are often the result.

4. Medical conditions: People who receive chemotherapy or hormone therapy, or take certain drugs like birth control pills experience dark spots. People who try to reduce dark spots by laser treatments sometimes end up with more dark spots or uneven skin tone later.

As well as helping your skin feel softer and smoother, moisturizers can improve hydration and help restore the skin’s natural moisture barrier. Look for a gentle moisturizer for sensitive skin that doesn’t contain unnecessary (and potentially irritating) ingredients such as colors and fragrances. Cetaphil Moisturising Cream, Cetaphil Moisturising Lotion, are specially formulated for sensitive skin; fragrance-free, hypoallergenic and non-comedogenic. 


Regular exfoliation helps to deep clean skin, removing irritants, impurities and pollutants, so it’s good practice. Plus, exfoliation has the added benefit of removing dead skin cells and promoting skin renewal, giving you healthier-looking skin. But not all facial scrubs are the same. When looking for an exfoliating product, be sure to use one that’s specifically designed for sensitive skin, like Cetaphil Extra Gentle Daily Scrub

Whatever products you use, it’s important to carve out a regular skin care routine that works for you, your lifestyle and your sensitive skin.
