Prolonged sun exposure accelerates the creation of pigment, stimulates the formation of new lesions, and deepens existing ones, so undermining the efficacy of topical medications or dermatological treatments.

Check your spots with a dermatologist before DIY dabbling

Make an appointment for your annual skin cancer screening if you plan to receive treatment at home and haven't already.

Cover them with makeup

As they age, women of all skin tones see variations in the hue of their skin: some receive red or broken blood vessels, others get light or dark spots, and some get all three.

Add a next generation retinol to your routine

One type of vitamin A that is well-known for promoting cell turnover and thereby smoothing out wrinkles is called retinol.

Treat spot with a cocktail of proven ingredients

Addressing enduring discolorations requires a customized approach. Another option is to try a strong but safe combination of a few substances that works like a team to even out the skin.

Have your dermatologist treat spots with liquid nitrogen
