Methods on How To Get Rid of Dark Spots on Face

The second you notice a dark spot on your face, the question that probably follows is: how do I get rid of this dark spot?

You may think there is no point in trying to get rid of these spots or that the damage is done, but think again! There are tons of ways that will not only fade your dark spots away but also prevent them from appearing in the first place. 

Today, you will learn all about dark spots: how you get them, how to prevent them, and most importantly, how to get rid of them.

Want to cut right to the chase? Add our Vita-C Booster Serum to your cart, and read on about how it can help you get rid of those dark spots! 

What Is a Dark Spot? 

A dark spot appears shades darker than your natural skin tone. You can get dark spots or areas of skin discoloration anywhere on your body due to excess melanin pigment in the affected area, but the most common place to see one form is on your face. 

Dark spots are sometimes called age spots and can take years to appear. Dark spots can occur in various shapes and sizes and may range in color. Unfortunately, dark spots, also known as sunspots, can be due to many factors. From hormonal changes to skin conditions, pimples, or acne scars, there are many potential culprits — with one of the most common causes being chronic exposure to the sun and its harmful UV rays. 

Your skin is extremely sensitive, and it gets exposed to harmful UV rays from the sun daily, whether it is sunny, overcast, or snowing. That is why it is so important to use sun protection each day to protect your skin — generally, SPF 30 is recommended. 

How Can I Protect My Skin? 

The first step in protecting the sensitive skin on your face is to use a daily moisturizer with SPF. You already know how important it is to keep your skin moisturized, but it is just as important to have a morning moisturizer that can simultaneously protect your skin from the sun. 

The best part? You do not have to add another step to your morning skincare routine. Instead, you can easily find a moisturizer made specifically for morning usage — meaning it likely already contains SPF. 

Here are other tips and tricks for protecting your skin from the sun:

  • Reapply sunscreen or SPF facial moisturizer every couple of hours. This is especially important after sweating, showering, swimming, or any activity where you lose the product — make sure to reapply. 

    • Apply sunscreen every day, regardless of how sunny it is. You can still get sun damage if it is cloudy! UV radiation rays can break through overcast, so make sure you use SPF daily. 

    • Limit your sun exposure. Unfortunately, sitting outside in the warming sun is all fun and games until the dark spots appear. So make sure to limit the time you spend sitting in direct sunlight. 

    • Accessorize with a hat or sunglasses. There’s no harm in stepping out in a beautiful sunhat or some new shades. Simply accessorizing with a hat or sunglasses can be another barrier between your skin and the sun. 

          How Do I Get Rid of Dark Spots on My Face?

          Now that you know how to protect your skin, we can teach you how to eliminate the dark spots already there. From spot treatments and over-the-counter products to home remedies and simply choosing the right active ingredients in the proper concentrations, there are many ways that you can work to fade any pesky dark spots.

          Vitamin C is one of the best ingredients you can look for in your skincare products when it comes to dark spots. Vitamin C is an antioxidant that can help protect your top layer of skin from certain forms of damage and irritation.

          Vitamin C is also corrective, as it can reduce the appearance of discoloration and brighten skin. We recommend NuFACE Super Vita-C Booster Serum to brighten discoloration and reduce the appearance of dark spots. Super Vita-C Booster serum contains key ingredients Carnosine and Edelweiss Flower Extract, IonPlex®, and Vitamin C, and is safe for all skin types. 

          Edelweiss Flower Extract helps firm, tighten, and contour skin. At the same time, our IonPlex® ensures optimal microcurrent device performance, and vitamin C seals the deal by helping to prevent discoloration and dark spots caused by sun damage and UV light. 

          In Conclusion 

          Dark spots are only a few centimeters big, but these tiny, discolored spots can make it feel like it’s all anyone can see when looking at you. These dark spots appear due to chronic sun exposure, thus resulting in sun damage. 

          You can help protect your skin from damage by applying sunscreen daily and reapplying SPF to your face. Finding a morning moisturizer that contains SPF is an easy way to do so. You can also limit your skin exposure and throwing on hats every once in a while can help prevent new dark spots. 

          If the damage is done and the sun has left you with dark spots, do not fear because Vitamin C is here. Our Super Vita-C Booster Serum can help reduce discoloration and get your skin back to glowing. You can protect, prevent, and brighten dark spots with our Super Vita-C Booster Serum.
