Faster, Overnight ways to remove Dark spots
Overnights treatments are not preferred by me. I love to go natural all the time. I have included the overnight process which is rather harmful for our skin.
Laser treatment is the first method which many a more people are using. By pointing laser beam on the dark spots it eventually burns your skin layer. Laser treatment gives the instant outcome. You may notice redness, inflammation or infection. I personally don’t prefer this because it may come up with more impairment situation.
2.Direct Acidic Treatment
I seriously don’t like to use this. Use of Retin-A is very common now-a-days. Tropical over the counter treatments use alpha-hydroxyl acid and retinol. Now the main thing is that these ingredients will burn off the affected skin which has dark spots. It will help to grow new tender skin to make your skin soft and glamorous like before.
Once I used Retin-A to remove dark spots. It made my skin more disastrous then the previous condition. The first layer of my skin tends to fall off because of the acidic properties. Then I got to know the reason behind it. If you are using alpha- hydroxyl acid or other acidic treatments make sure you are using sunscreen and good moisturizer which will make your skin soft and calm.
Except from the laser treatment I have used many methods which I have listed above. Try to use these and share your thoughts after using those. If you have any other method which works best for you please feel free to share and help others.
