You don’t always have to hide dark spots on your face with concealer or foundation, or expose your skin to harsh chemicals or treatments to remove these annoying marks. Whether they are liver spots associated with aging, or due to stubborn acne, or insect bite scars, there are tons of available options that could remove these dark spots from your face.
The first step in getting rid of dark spots fast is to start early. Once you see tiny spots, act on them quickly. The pigment responsible for brown spots moves deeper into skin over time, therefore, a spot is easiest to erase when it’s still new at about 3-6 months old. Starting early prevents hyperpigmentation.
