HYPERPIGMENTATION: What to do about Age Spots?

What causes brown spots?

Hyperpigmentation happens for many reasons. Tanning, sun exposure, and intermittent sunscreen use. You may have dark spots due to acne scars. Or you could have bad genetics. Years of any of these factors can lead to hyperpigmentation.

Beauty magazines tout the latest K-Beauty trends including Glass Skin and Cloudless Skin. What is the goal of any of these trends? To get skin that is free of hyperpigmentation, which is a hallmark of young skin.

How to Fix Brown Spots

Retinol and Vitamin C serum decrease hyperpigmentation and improve skin clarity.

When starting a Retinol program, you may see a slight darkening and tightening of spots on your face. Don’t give up! Deeper levels of hyperpigmentation rise to the surface and exfoliate off. This is normal.

Vitamin C fades existing coloration regardless of its’ source. It breaks up the discoloration into smaller dots, visually fading the spot until it is gone.
