There are lots of vitamins and botanical that fade spots by interrupting melanin production, including vitamin C, vitamin B3 (Niacin-amide), soy, licorice, arbutin, and kojic acid. But they work in slightly different ways, so fit as many into your daily regimen as possible.
In the morning, wear brighteners that are also anti-oxidants, such as vitamin C, licorice, or soy. Try EILEEN MAI Vitamin C serum with a sunscreen such as EILEEN MAI Vitamin C Daily Protection Moisturizer SPF 30.
At night, use these same pigment-reducing or other lightening ingredients to correct skin tone and help fade dark spots. Try EILEEN MAI Brightening serum , All in one younger skin serum and/or EILEEN MAI Vitamin C Night Creme.
2. Keep calm:
Any kind of irritation, including rashes or acne, accelerates the production of pigment. If your skin flares up, go back to a basic cleanser and a moisturizer until it recovers.
3. Be patient:
You can fade spots with over-the-counter treatments and should see gradual results after six to eight weeks. So don’t quit a lightening regiment just because spots don’t disappear overnight.
