Brown Spots / Melasma
Dark spots, or hyperpigmentation, in the skin are caused by an increase in melanin — what gives your skin color. You may see dark spots or age spots (melasma), acne scarring, or excess pigment caused by sun damage or a skin treatment. Treat uneven skin tone and lighten dark spots with an exfoliant rich in alpha hydroxy acids (AHA) or retinol to increase cell turnover and visibly fade skin discoloration. An added benefit of treating melasma with skin care products containing AHA or retinol is anti-aging properties to correct the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and uneven skin tone.
