View Full Version : Dark Spots on my face

01-24-2012, 05:57 PM
I have some dark spots on my face that I got once when I spent the day out in the sun and didn't have enough protection. ( I dread that day every time I look in the mirror). I have been to a couple dermatologists that have prescribed me Hydroquinone which made my skin very red so I stopped using it. Is there any other remedy that might help the dis-coloration disappear once and for all?
Also, I always use 60 spf now on my face, however when its a hot day outside, I feel my skin getting hot and burning in the area where the spots are. Does anyone know why this happens?

I think the spot would take a lot longer than one day to come about. You probably have not used a good broad spectrum sunscreen throughout your life. Most people haven't so don't feel bad. The spot should not get hot and burn when you are out in the sun or heat now. I would recommend you seeing a doctor because there is probably something else going on as it shouldn't feel any different than the rest of your face. Tell the doctor that is feels like it is burning and hot.

Hydroquinone is very harsh. A vitamin C serum will lighten the spots if used every morning.

i agree with y34963.if the area feels different than rest of the skin than we probably need to checkout for the cause and for that u need to visit the dermatologist and explain about it.also probably u may need to checkout the sunscreen and the method of its use (some sunscreen need to be applied every 4-5 hours) also some sunscreen or its ingredients may not have suited u or not good enough to provide adequate protection.

Sun rays are major cause of dark spots therefore you should take measure to stay away from direct heat. As you had used cosmetic products which harmed your skin, you should try other alternative option like natural products. There are many natural remedies which can help you to get out of this problem.

Hi Elaina,

Have already tried whitening moisturizing cream? I also have had disturbing dark spots and slowly got rid of them using a whitening moisturizing cream.

Use of Aloe Vera gel on your face makes your skin healthier & generates new cell in your skin. It also helps you in healing pimples and calm redness. However, use Aloe Vera gel on your face twice a day; it will diminish dark spots on your face.

These days i tend to stay away from products that contain harsh chemicals. I had a scary run in, so now i stick to natural methods of lightening my skin.

I would advise you to do some research and try some different techniques to see what works for you. goodluck

I can relate to you as I also have same problem, and have used so many products and methods (including dermabrasion and peels). I have yet to find something that really works but I am using Dior Snowwhite range and find them quite nice.. also Amore Gold argan oil which seems to clear my skin. As for your skin feeling hot and buring, I will get check with GP just to be safe. Good luck and let me know how you go :)

I too want to consult others in this regard. I've heard great stuff about inviCible scars at different forums. It deals with all kinds of scars , spots and blemishes . I'm looking forward to trying it now. Who else has tried it here ?

Sorry I haven't heard of this. I suggest you go to 'makeup alley'. That site has reviews from users on just about any product.

Any updates on your progress with this?

which methods/products have worked/not worked?

It is also important to mention that you should be exfoliating your skin 2-3 times per week to remove dead skin cells and allow recipes/products soak in to the proper layers of skin cells...

You can apply lemon juice on affected area. Also Drink 8 glasses of water throughout the day and have a healthy diet to get rid of dark spots.

Over the last six years i have had major acne that left me with scars. I have tried many different products but nothing seem to work. However, i started using this skincare line in december and so far i have seen great result. Dermix clinical skincare offers a variety of products that concentrate on acne prone skin to anti wrinkle skin.

The main cause of dark spots is sunlight exposure. I think you should go with natural remedy. Apply paste of turmeric paste and orange juice on the affected area for 20 minutes and than wash off with cold water. You can also apply lemon juice to remove dark spots. It is also good remedy to treat dark spots.

Trying remedies at home would help to fade them away. You can use yogurt, lemon juice, etc.

I suggest you go to dubai cosmetic surgery as it provides best treatments regarding dark spots, pigmentation and acne scars. As i am suffering from same problem from last couple of years but some one suggest me about this so pigmentation treatment in dubai is best for dark spots on your face.

I would like to recommend Radium as I have tried this treatment and the effect is really good. I have a more even skin tone and pigmentation is greatly reduced. You can read more from here.

For the skin pigmentation use rose water. Take rose water spray bottle, cool it in the freezer and spray on your face 4 to 5 times a daily. It will remove the pigmentation and makes the skin Glow and be shining.

There are a number of home remedies you can try to get rid of these pigmentations. They do not work for everyone, and they do take time to work if they do. It requires perseverance and consistency.
Lemon, potato and Aloe Vera are all useful in getting rid of pigmentation including other forms of pigments such as freckles and solar lentigo.
Most importantly, avoid excessive sun exposure, and applying sun screen with SPF of at least 30 if you need to go under the sun. This will prevent the spots from getting worse, and prevent new spots from popping out!

I really like this treatment and thought it is good to share! I will go for this treatment when I have an event to attend. It helps to brighten up my skin and putting on make up is much more easier for me as little touch up makes it looks so perfect =D

Of course, there are more benefits than just this! Read it yourself
