Dark Spots (Sun Spots)



I have sunspots on my face and have had them for years.  I've tried lightening serums, Vitamin C and nothing works. Any suggestions?

Re: Dark Spots (Sun Spots)

These two things may help more than lightening skincare product: wearing sunscreen whenever you go out; eating red bean porridge

Same! I've been using various skincare, some that claim to erase dark spots and even skin tone. While the serums and creams do feel luxurious, I've never found anything to actually work to eliminate the dark spots. Honestly, the only thing that does work, is make up. And I do use sunscreen and wear sunglasses and hats and stay out of the sun, but at my age (40s) the spots are showing on my face.

First Aid Beauty’s Dark Spot serum might help if you stick with it!

@MLDavis2649 I'm in the same boat.  I think the only thing that really works is IPL.  I'm going to stop wasting my money on beauty products that don't work and just get an IPL treatment(s).  This is on my to-do list.
