Dark Spot Correctors

A dark spot is a build-up of extra pigment caused by any number of reasons. They can occur from acne, hormonal changes and excess sun exposure. I am familiar with dark spots, especially across my cheeks, so I have selected a number of serums and solutions to help remove them. These will remove those dark spots and bring back your even skin tone.

Kiehl’s: Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Solution

The Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Solution contains Peony and Activated C Extract. It penetrates the skin to quickly reduce the appearance of skin discolourations. This is possibly one of my favourite products that has helped me with my spots of hyperpigmentation. Use this on the daily to prevent the future formation of dark spots. It’s really lightweight and fragrance-free which makes it great for all skin types.
