How Do I Treat Dark Spots and Hyperpigmentation on The Face?

Dark spots and hyperpigmentation on the face can be a difficult condition to treat.  Sometimes the dark patches and spots last for some months and sometimes years depending on why you have them in the first place.  Dark spots that are a result of acne tends to stay on the face for months and sometimes years but if left alone may eventually disappear.

There are many products out there that claim to treat and get rid of dark spots and other types of hyperpigmentation but that don't actually get rid of them completely and for good.  The best kind of dark spot removal products will not only get rid of your existing spots but keep them away for good.

 1. Make a plan which basically means to have a dedicated skin care routine.  Make sure that you have a routine that includes exfoliating, a quality facial lightening cream, and sun protection.  Also, make sure that you stick with and use your products consistently and daily to achieve the end goal aka the skin of your dreams!

2. Use skin care products with quality ingredients.  For lightening hyperpigmentation your best bet is to always use skin lightening products that use natural ingredients.  This is the best way to ensure that the products you use are healthy for you and your skin and in no way harm your health.

3. Protect your skin.  Most of the time this means protecting your skin from the sun's harsh rays but can also mean protecting it from unnecessary scrapes, scratches, bruises, and anything harmful.  In terms of sun protection, all sunscreens aren't created equal and some can even be bad for the skin.  Choose a brightening physical sunscreen that works to not only enhance the effects of the products that you're using but also that improves the health of your skin.
