How To Soften The Appearance Of Dark Spots
It takes only a small amount of time spent in the sun without protection to get dark spots, but once you have them they can take quite some time to address. There are two easy ways to help fade the appearance of dark spots on your skin to reveal a brighter and more radiant complexion. Read on to find out what causes dark spots and how to help make them fade over time.
1. Overnight Peel
If you want to make the appearance of your dark spots fade try using a product that can work overnight. Overnight peels are a great product to use after you’ve cleansed your skin with a rinse-able cleanser or micellar water. Apply an overnight peel such as Garnier SkinActive’s Clearly Brighter Overnight Leave-On Peel to clean skin that is dry. It helps refine skin texture, smooth skin and reduce the look of dark spots with continued use. It’s formulated with glycolic alpha hydroxyl acid (AHA) and Vitamin C. Apply a moisturizer after the peel to help hydrate your skin during the night.
2. Dark Spot Corrector
“Dark spots in the skin are caused by excess melanin production as well as sun damage,” consulting Garnier Dermatologist Dr. Madfes, MD told us. “Topical Vitamin C is a mild exfoliator and can help lighten the appearance of brown spots with daily use.”
Vitamin C can help fade the appearance of dark spots particularly when used over a longer span of time. If your dark spots are localized and you would like to apply a product to targeted areas try a dark spot corrector such as Garnier SkinActive’s Clearly Brighter Dark Spot Corrector. Formulated with Vitamin C, it helps effectively even skin tone and help reduce the look of dark spots.
Just remember to use the dark spot corrector as directed. Consistency is key when it comes to reducing the appearance of dark spots. Make sure to apply SPF 15 or higher daily to help protect against future dark spots.
