Lighten Up!

Discoloration of the skin or “Hyper-pigmentation” is caused by a few different things:

  1. Sun damage which cause freckles and sun spots
  2. Hormornal changes brought on by birth control or pregnancy
  3. Blemishes

There are a lot of products that promise to lighten and remove spots but I have yet to find one that actually works.  I noticed that some top cosmetic lines now have brightening serums and creams which promise to brighten up the complexion and minimize spots. And of course, being the product junkie that I am, I had to try a few. 

The first one I tried was the Kiehls Brightening Botanical line which I loved.  My skin looked bright and glowed, but I didn’t notice a big change in my dark spot – yes I only have one, but it doesn’t make it any less annoying than if my face were covered.

The next one I tried was Biotherm White Detox which promises the same as the Kiehls products.  I really like this line, it left me with  brighter skin and the price was a lot cheaper.  I beleive that with continuous use I will see the results that I’m looking for.

Are there any lightening products that use that you love?  What about natural remedies?  You know you have to share with us!

  1. The best I’ve tried is Carol’s Daughter scar butter. If I weren’t a hyper-picker, my skin would be completely free of dark marks.

  2. I tried that and it made my face break out! 😦
