Best Tips on Fading Dark Spots….FAST!

We all hate those dreaded dark spots. Whether they are caused from the sun or from age, one thing remains constant – we don’t want them, especially on our beautiful faces and hands! We’ve put together the best beauty tips to help you even out your complexion and diminish those pesky dark spots!

Act Fast!

The pigment in dark spots goes deeper into your skin as time goes on, so it’s easiest to treat when the spot is fairly new (within 6 months). When you start early, the hyperpigmentation can be gone in as little as a couple of months!

Be Bold.

Retinol is one of the best ingredients for treating dark spots. Try applying a retinol based cream, such as our Retinol 0.5 Treatment Cream, a couple of nights per week to help eliminate the dark spots and even out your complexion.

Lighten Up!

Apply a lightweight, hydrating moisturizer each morning. Use a moisturizer that will protect, nourish, provide long-lasting hydration, and work to balance your skin tone, such as AB’s Skin-Perfecting Daily Moisturizer. This, combined with the Retinol treatment done nightly a couple of times per week will get those dark spots on the fast track to elimination!

Protect, Protect, Protect!

Exposure to UV rays can make dark spots even darker so make sure to apply a sunscreen daily. The sunscreen you choose should have an SPF of 30 or greater. Don’t forget to reapply as needed throughout the day.

The steps mentioned above are super simple to implement and are easy to follow. Best of all, they will work to fade those dark spots as long as you are consistent! Looking for more great tips? Head over to our Facebook page!
