Having clear and clean skin makes us feel great about ourselves and adds some extra confidence.  Here are some simple and effective tips to treat dark spots on dark skin:

  • Protect yourself from the sun.  Facing direct sunlight will increase the production of melanin in the skin and will further darken the spots. Hence, it is advisable to avoid going out in the sun during peak hours. If necessary, cover your face with a cloth or apply sun screen lotion with a high SPF count.
  • Get sufficient vitamins for the skin. Choose moisturisers that have high antioxidant content and which also contain vitamin A, C, and E; they help to remove the dead cells from the surface of the skin and reveal the fresh layer of the skin which is free from pigmentation.
  • Use topical lighteners. Use skin lightening cream which has hydroquinone content; it minimises the production of melanin that reduces the dark spots in the skin.
