Uneven Skin Tone & Dark Spots

Age spots, also called liver spots, are flat gray, brown, or black spots that vary in size and appear on the face, hands, shoulders, and arms. These dark spots create uneven-looking skin. These posts explore how to lighten dark skin spots and get an even skin tone.

Melanin is what gives your skin color. Light from the sun speeds up the production of melanin, which may result in the dark spots that show up on your skin. Protecting your skin from the sun is one way to help prevent dark spots but there are also many other things you can do. Learn how to lighten dark skin spots by choosing the right skin care regimen and making some everyday skin care changes.

You can read testimonials and success stories as well as receive tips from skin care professionals on how to lighten dark skin spots.
