If you are struggling to obtain that silky smooth and unified skin tone because of dark spots, keep reading to find out what causes them and how you can eliminate them.
What causes dark spots to appear?
In order to solve a problem, we should first understand the root of it. Understanding what can cause dark spots would help us avoid them in the future and aid us in choosing the right product for that specific problem.
Dark spots occur when some areas of the skin produce more melanin than usual. Melanin is responsible for giving the hair, the eyes, and the skin their color. The overproduction of melanin could be in response to sun exposure (harmful UV rays), hormonal changes (pregnant women), and/or acne scars.
Now that we have an idea about what causes dark spots, we have gathered a list of preventions and solutions to help you fight dark spots, followed by some product recommendations:
- Wear SPF
As mentioned before, unprotected sun exposure can have drastic results on the appearance of dark spots. Applying SPF should always be the last step of your skin care routine regardless of your skin problems and of the weather.
