For many, dark spots are a major problem especially when they are around visible body areas like the face. We all want that smooth spotless skin and we are willing to go to any lengths to get rid of an unwanted spot. A fairly smooth and evened out skin color is everyone’s desire and this is why masking against dark spots is important…
With our day-to-day occurrences, we cannot purely prevent causes for blemish but we could always get rid of them. For the spots that are difficult to get rid of, we could always camouflage them until they get to disappear. There are various remedies; While other treatments work, others may not be as effective.
It is best that you realize the cause of your spots before you decide on a remedy for it. Masking a dark spot will take into account the cause of the spot. Causes could include acne, sun spots e.t.c.
As a day-to-day remedy, you can use a cream on your face. These creams are commonly used as a daily remedy until the spot disappears. They are normally prescribed to you after an analysis. There are also some over the counter prescriptions while others are home remedies.
The beauty industry is offering various solutions to this problem. They come in various categories:
• Fade creams.
• Bleaching creams. These lighten the spots.
• Correctors which work best when used hand in hand with sunscreen.
What do you have to look out for when purchasing these products? There are specific ingredients that you need consider in all the products the market has to offer that work very well.
I recommend products that contain the following ingredients:
• Cocoa butter.
• Vitamin E and B3.
• Aloe vera.
• Lime or lemon extracts.
• Almond oils.
You should also put into consideration the age of your spots. It will take different time durations for the remedy to work on different spots. Patience is of essence when you are treating dark spots. The duration for the remedy to completely get rid of them will depend on:
– The cause
Spots caused from accidents take longer to heal as compared to spots caused due to acne and the sun. The concentration required to heal a dark spot that is proving difficult to get rid of is normally higher and the dosage is for a longer time.
– The age
Spots that are older in age will also take a longer time period to get rid of. More recent dark spots may be cleared faster with the right concentration of the product you choose to buy.
The above named ingredients work well when getting rid spots. When ordering across the counter at the pharmacy, go through the ingredients the product you are purchasing has and you are good to go. Be patient or you will be trying different products all the time and due to the constant change, you may not have the desired effect.
