I feel like I’ve dealt with almost every skin related issue out there, including oily skin, dry skin, large pores, and acne, which caused me to have to deal with dark spots. Dark spots, otherwise known as hyperpigmentation, is caused by many things including sun damage and acne scarring. Personally, I can attribute my dark spot issues to acne and my idiotic tendency to pick at them when I was younger. Okay, maybe I did a little picking in my adulthood, but I’m done with that. I’m a changed woman!
Back to dark spots. Over the years, I’ve tried and used different treatments and products to get rid of dark spots, or at least lighten them. Unfortunately, most dark spot treatments can be a little pricey, but luckily there are some very affordable ones out there that you can get from your favorite drugstore.
If you looking for an effective and affordable dark spot correctors to help you battle your dark spots, check out these options.
- Bio-Oil Skincare Oil – This is one of the skincare oils that you should always keep in your beauty stash. Not only does it help with dark spots, but also others scarring, dehydrated skin, and stretch marks.
- The Ordinary Vitamin C Suspension 23% – The Ordinary is a very new brand that spread like wildfire thanks to it’s super affordable and very potent serums. Their Vitamin C Suspension serum is a pure form of L-Ascorbic Acid, which helps brighten the skin and toning hyperpigmentation. Since it’s an “it” item that’s ridiculously affordable, it sells out quickly. So, sign-up for notifications for when it’s back in stock.
