Not everyone is lucky enough to have skin that is completely even in tone and always looks flawless even when they they wake up; unless of course you’re under the age of 12. If this is you then you can stop reading and thank your lucky stars for having perfect skin but if you don’t have perfect skin and suffer from dark spots and uneven tone then keep reading.
Dark spots are an irritation to many women and can worsen with time, sun exposure and even hormones. While some women just deal with it by covering them up with massive amounts of concealers and foundations there are better ways to handle dark spots. There are many products on the market that can help to lighten and and brighten dark spots to create a more even and healthy complexion. Many of the ones listed here are non irritation for women with sensitive skin as well. Check out the list above and find the right skin corrector for you. Also note that none of the products listed have hydroquinone which is known to be a controversial skin care ingredient which can decrease the production of melanin and increase the risk of skin cancer.
