How To Prevent And Treat Dark Spots: To prevent and treat the appearance of dark spots and hyperpigmentation, it’s important to understand the causes. Most dark spots develop as a result of over exposure to UVA and UVB rays from the sun, hormonal changes during pregnancy, and of course acne. As we age our skin cell turnover slows down and these spots become darker and more apparent. That’s why it is important to protect your skin from the sun every day with a high quality sunscreen (SPF30 or higher) and treat dark spots and hyperpigmentation as early as possible with targeted products that contain the right combination of ingredients that can help reveal brighter, more beautiful skin!
