Discoloration of the skin or “Hyper-pigmentation” is caused by a few different things:
- Sun damage which cause freckles and sun spots
- Hormornal changes brought on by birth control or pregnancy
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.
