This is a question that's asked by people of all ages and skin tones. Dark spots or hyperpigmentation is distressing at any age and to both men and women and everyone wants an even toned, healthy, glowing complexion. The good news is that dark spots do go away but you have to find the root cause of what's giving you the spots in the first place, address it, and then go about removing the dark spots aka hyperpigmentation.
Dark Spot Removal
Removing dark spots can be tricky and it definitely is not something that happens overnight. It can be done but will take some effort and both patience and a consistent skin care regimen. Both of these are important and are absolutely required for successful dark spot removal.
Patience is needed because it will take anywhere from 7 days to a few months to remove the spots and consistency because you must make sure to apply the skin care products for dark spot removal consistently.
How to Remove Dark Spots
First, you need to choose the right product. Use a product that uses natural skin lightening ingredients instead of damaging hydroquinone or even worse ingredients for your skin! Don't buy the cheapest product that you can find, it is better to use a quality natural skin lightening product that is also effective for even the most stubborn dark marks. The right natural skin lightening cream not only lightens dark spots, but dark patches, dark surgery scars, and any hyperpigmentation on the skin.
The skin of the body and the face are different. On the face, the skin is a lot thinner and more delicate. Before applying any skin lightening product, make sure the skin is cleansed, exfoliated, and properly prepped so that the products work to the best of their ability.
The skin on the body is a lot tougher and harder to lighten. It may need some additional aha's (natural fruit acids) to increase absorption of the skin lightening product for the body, so that it can effectively remove hyperpigmentation.
During treatment for dark spot removal and afterwards it is also important to use a sunscreen daily. The reason for this is to avoid additional sun damage and to avoid the areas that have already been lightened from tanning.
