Efficient Ways To Remove Dark Spots On Your Face

Pinterest Google+

Typically caused by sun damage, dark spots are associated with aging. Especially in our sunny island of Singapore, this may be a big problem for some people. Don’t fret! There are a range of effective dark spot faders that you can choose from. Here are some of the most common and effective:


Hydroquinone helps to prevent excess melanin, the pigment found in skin which gives it its colour. This pigmentation is what causes the discolouration that appears on your face. To treat these dark spots, apply the product containing hydroquinone over the dark spots. This works best when paired with BHA or AHA, which will help fade the dark spots even faster!

Niacinamide and Acetyl Glucosamine

This combination tackles both brown spots from sun damage and red marks from post-breakouts. Together, they interrupt the pathway that melanin takes to form. This process allows darker, discoloured spots to become more even with the surrounding skin by preventing the formation of excess melanin.

Vitamin C

Vitamin C is a reputable ingredient in tackling dark spot concerns. Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant, which will in turn help to reduce pigmentation on your skin caused by sun damage.

Paula’s Choice offers two main products with vitamin C as their active ingredients: C15 Booster and Vitamin C Spot Treatment. The C15 Booster contains 15% vitamin C while the Spot Treatment contains a higher concentration of vitamin C, at 25%. While more stubborn dark spots might require the higher concentration of 25% vitamin C, milder dark spot concerns can be treated with 15% vitamin C.


Additional Tip

Remember that dark spots are typically caused by sun damage! To prevent excess melanin from building up and dark spots from forming, always use a sunscreen in your daytime skincare routine! While the above recommended treatments help to reduce dark spots, they do not replace the need for sunscreen in your daily routine.
