Dark spots are caused by exposure to UV rays, estrogen fluctuations and skin injuries caused by pimples and others. Here are the ways to get rid of them.
Dehydrated skin causes a lot of problems, not to mention the overall health effects of not having enough fluids in your body. Make it a habit to drink a total of 64 ounces of fluid everyday. Try to avoid alcoholic and sugary drinks if you can. You should also try to limit yourself to one cup of coffee everyday.
Dry skin can sometimes make your skin look older. Even when you have oily skin, you still need to moisturize because washing can remove natural oils that are supposed to protect the skin. The type of moisturizer you will need has to be specifically made for your skin type (dry or oily).
Avoid dry and wrinkled skin by exfoliating using mild products. Dead skin cells tend to accumulate over time so you need to revitalize it. You can buy a brush or sponge too. You should also visit the dermatologist if you want to have exfoliation treatments.
Even if you spend most of your day in the office away from the sun’s heat, you still need to protect your skin. Some lotions don’t offer protection from UV rays. These can damage your skin and even cause cancer after prolonged exposure. Wrinkles and dark spots are sure to appear too.
It’s important to make your pores clean, but sometimes washing alone isn’t enough. There are a lot of masks that specialize in a lot of things like anti-aging, acne reduction, skin-lightening and moisturizing. Just follow the instructions on the label and read the ingredients to avoid irritation.
Some face masks act as face peels too. There are also gels that remove impurities on the skin. Peels that contain glycolic acid will help reduce wrinkles and fine lines. While peels with salicylic acid is recommended for those with acne problems.
You should also consider creams and gels that specifically target dark spots. These spots are caused by sun damage and age. You can also use lemon juice as a natural alternative and will act as a bleaching agent to get rid of the discoloration.
Vitamin C, Kojic acid, Vitamin B3, green tea, licorice or sophora root, lemon juice, arbutin and turmeric are natural remedies for uneven skin tone. You can make some of these at home.
Getting a facial will also address different skin problems and not just uneven skin tone. Visit a dermatologist to get the best treatment. You might also want to consider getting laser treatment or microdermabrasion for age spots and wrinkles.
You can hide dark spots on your face with makeup. Some products also contain ingredients like sunscreen that will help while you’re trying to get rid of the problem. Use a foundation that will even out your skin tone and make it look natural.
