5 Products That Will Help Fade Dark Spots Faster

By Amorfia Team,

As much as we all love putting on makeup, let’s admit it: We all want flawless skin—the kind that doesn’t really need makeup. But it’s not exactly easy to go barefaced when you’re conscious about your skin imperfections such as dark spots and an uneven skin tone.

Also known as hyperpigmentation, dark spots appear due to the overproduction of melanin, a.k.a. the pigment that gives skin its color, and can be caused by a lot of things, from hormones to sun exposure and even aging. More commonly, though, acne is to blame, coupled by bad habits such as popping your zits or skipping the sunscreen.

If you’re in your late 20s or 30s, you’re probably noticing that your blemishes tend to linger on skin longer, too, compared to when you were younger. This is because as we age, skin healing takes longer as regenerative processes slow down. This means that a pimple mark that used to take only a few days to disappear may now stay visible for weeks or even months!

The good news: You can speed up the healing and help fade your blemishes faster by incorporating good skin care habits into your routine and with the help of these products.

Vitamin C

A popular antioxidant (meaning it prevents damage to cells by inhibiting oxidation), Vitamin C does more than keep skin fresh and young-looking. It can also inhibit the enzymatic processes that produce melanin in the skin, reducing pigmentation and discoloration. Even better? It also has brightening powers to help lighten problematic areas.                                                                                          

 

Try: The Ordinary Vitamin C Suspension 30% in Silicone, P549
If you don’t mind a bit of tingling, you can use this highly potent and stable formula for fast results. 
It is best applied before bedtime.

 

The Ordinary Ascorbyl Tetraisopalmitate Solution 20% in Vitamin F, P1,199
If you prefer a more gentle Vitamin C product, this oil formula also offers specific skin brightening benefits without any discomfort. You may use it morning and evening.

 

Skin-Repairing Products

Since one of the factors that aggravate the appearance of dark spots is slow skin regeneration, you can help speed up the process with skin-saving products like those infused with snail mucus, which is known for its healing and moisturizing powers. Plus, it also contributes to skin’s plumpness and smoothness, so skin becomes younger-looking, too.

 

Try: Deoproce Snail Recovery Brightening Ampoule, P1,290
This potent ampoule contains a high concentration of snail mucus extracts to hasten skin repair while also brightening the complexion.

Deoproce Snail Galac Revital Sleeping Pack, P1,995
This delivers intense moisture while you sleep—when skin goes into full-on repair mode.

 

Sunscreen

These days, sunscreen is no longer just an option. It’s practically a requirement, even on a cloudy day! (FYI: UV rays can still penetrate the clouds.) It’s also important to night that sun exposure can only further aggravate pigmentation problems, so make sure to protect your skin at all times, especially if you’re using brighteners such as Vitamin C products or acids like AHAs and BHAs.

 

The Ordinary Suncare Mineral UV Filters SPF 15 with Antioxidants, P699
This mineral sunblock combines ultra-refined zinc oxide and titanium dioxide in a powerful formula that blocks out most rays to prevent damage and discoloration.

 

Remember: As with any skin care routine or treatment regimen, you can’t expect to get results overnight especially since hyperpigmentation can be a tricky thing and skin reactions to products vary. But with a little patience, consistency, and a whole lot of discipline, you’re sure to achieve your flawless #skingoals in no time.
