Finding dark spots on your skin can be very frustrating, especially if it happens time and time again, with a new dark spot showing up less than a week after the last. Thankfully, these spots can be easily dealt with using one offensive, and two preventative methods.
These methods might seem very simple but they do work. An ounce of prevention is better than a pound of cure , but if you’ve already found these dark spots creeping onto your face the cure is also just as important for you right now. With that in mind, these three key methods of dealing with dark spots on your face are as follows:
1) Cover Using Cosmetics
If you are frustrated with the dark spots on your skin, one of the easiest ways to make them unnoticeable is to cover them with makeup.
There are many ways in which you can do this, though the vast majority of them require you to whiten your skin (if this is your natural complexion) to allow the spots to blend with your skin tone. Before applying whitening creams and the like, make sure to fully cleanse your face to wash away any oil or grime, leaving you with a blank canvas.
Once your face is dry, place concealer over the desired area, rubbing it in so it matches the surrounding colour of your skin. If you have several dark spots, you’ll need to do this for each one individually; at which point you’ll want to assess your handiwork to see the difference it makes.
2) Moisturise Daily
When you moisturise daily, you greatly reduce the chance of these dark spots appearing in the first place. This is because you’ll be taking good care of your skin and allowing it to make use of both the natural oils of your face and the ingredients within your moisturiser to stay supple, healthy, and glowing.
For this, you need to make sure you choose a high quality product that can truly help to make a difference. For this reason, buying natural face moisturizers is the way to go, as they aren’t riddled with complicated ingredients that could irritate our skin, unlike cheaper versions that are made from poor chemical concoctions.
3) Always Remove Make-Up Before Sleeping
You’ve been told many times to cleanse your face before going to sleep, yet you still refuse to do it. It could be because you aren’t fully convinced how much sleeping with make-up on could harm your skin. Well, how about you consider the following points:
Make-up covers your pores, meaning your skin cannot breathe during the night and self-repair as it’s being deprived from the oxygen in the room around you
It slows down your skin’s regeneration process, as the make-up gets in the way of all the processes that take place slowly as you sleep
It results in unnecessary exposure to free radicals in the environment; anything that becomes attached to your make-up during the course of your day, such as dust
Only a few things can be more frustrating than finding dark spots on your skin. Seeing such blemishes on your face or on other parts of your body can affect your self-esteem. Fortunately, there are ways you can prevent or deal with such imperfections, as discussed above.
