How to remove spots on the skin
It’s frustrating to look in the mirror and see unsightly spots on your face, and it can be tempting to get rid of them all. If you suffer from age spots, acne marks, pimples and freckles, you may want to try a few of the treatments described in this article. You can try home remedies, cover them up with makeup, get treatment from a dermatologist and take proper care of your skin. However, you may have to wait for a while to see results and it depends on the type of spots.
Use home remedies
Apply pineapple juice daily to lighten dark spots. Pineapple juice contains acids and enzymes that can naturally lighten discoloration and perhaps work for freckles as well. Dip a cotton swab into pineapple juice and apply it directly to the dark spots. Wait for the pineapple juice to dry naturally and then rinse the skin off.
Pineapple juice may cause slight skin irritation or sensitivity. When this happens, stop using it immediately and consult a dermatologist at the same time.
Apply evening primrose oil to lighten blemishes. Put a drop of evening primrose oil on your fingertips and rub it onto the blemishes. Apply twice a day to help fade the blemishes over time.
Apply the oil before putting on other skin care products, such as serums or lotions. Once the oil has dried, you can continue your usual skin care routine.
Do a yogurt mask every two weeks to lighten dark spots or freckles. The lactic acid in dairy products can lighten skin discoloration, including age spots and freckles. Apply the homemade mask to the skin, wait 20 minutes, then wash your face with cold water and pat your skin dry with a clean towel. There are several ways to mix homemade face masks.
Mix equal parts of yogurt and honey.
Mix 1 tablespoon of yogurt, 1 tablespoon of oats and 2-3 drops of honey.
Use a cream or serum that has a whitening effect. Apply a whitening cream or serum every morning and evening after washing your face. Apply the product correctly according to the instructions on the label. Check the label to make sure the product contains 1 or more of the following whitening ingredients.
Warning: Do not use bleaching creams on the skin as they can cause skin damage. It is best to check with your dermatologist for a cream that is safe to use.
Fade dark spots or acne marks with retinol or fruit acids. Choose an over-the-counter cream that contains retinol or fruit acids. These ingredients help speed up cell renewal, which in turn fades discoloration, acne marks, and perhaps works for freckles. Apply the cream every morning and evening after washing your face.
If the cream causes skin irritation or redness, stop using it immediately and then consult a dermatologist.
Apply aloe vera to slowly lighten blemishes. Cut aloe vera leaves to extract the juice, or just buy a jar of aloe vera gel at the store. Use a cotton swab to apply the aloe vera directly to the blemishes. When it dries, rinse it off with cold water. Repeat 2 times a day until the discoloration fades.
You can cut aloe vera leaves and extract the juice directly from them. If you want to buy it in a store, make sure to choose a 100% pure aloe vera gel product.
Did you know. Aloe vera contains aloin, which helps to lighten the melanin in your skin, so aloe vera is effective in getting rid of blemishes.
Cover up blemishes with makeup
Apply makeup first to make your makeup last longer. Apply a small amount on your nose and spread it outward to blend with your hairline and chinline. Applying a thin, even layer will help hold your makeup in place and make them last all day. Wait 2-3 minutes for the makeup prep to dry before moving on to the next step.
Makeup prep is not necessary, but using it will make your makeup last all day.
You can apply more makeup prep if necessary to cover your skin more evenly.
Use a peach concealer to correct discoloration. Choose light peach for fair skin tones, medium peach for medium skin tones and orange for dark skin tones. Dab the concealer on the dark spots to neutralize their dull color. This helps to hide the discoloration.
Apply foundation to even out your skin tone. Choose a foundation that suits your skin tone. Apply an even layer of foundation with a cotton pad or makeup ball. Apply the foundation on top of the blending concealer and smooth it over your entire face to help it blend. If you’re not using a blending concealer, then hit the foundation on your nose and spread it outward to blend with your hairline and chinline.
If you use a blending concealer, then conceal the concealer before applying the foundation.
If you’re using a regular concealer, then apply foundation first and then concealer.
Apply a highly effective concealer on skin discolorations or blemishes. Choose a concealer that is the same or one shade lighter than your skin tone. Then use your fingers or a small brush to apply the concealer to the blemish you want to cover. Gently smooth it out so that the edges blend with your skin. Wait 2-3 minutes to allow the concealer to dry before brushing on the powder.
Finally, set your makeup with a clear powder. Use a powder brush to sweep a thin layer of powder over your face. Dip the brush into the powder and gently pat it on, shaking off the excess powder. Sweep the powder over the entire face to help hold the makeup in place and make it last longer.
For added coverage, you can use a powder that is the same shade as your foundation. However, this may cause cakiness.
Consult a dermatologist
Consult a dermatologist to find out the best treatment plan for you. Your dermatologist will examine your skin for blemishes, find out why they form, and then tell you the best treatment options. This will ensure that you choose a safe and effective treatment option. Go see a dermatologist and have him examine your skin.
Ask your doctor to refer you to a dermatologist.
Ask your dermatologist about prescription-grade skin lightening creams. These products usually contain hydroquinone, which stops your skin from producing melanin. Use them consistently for several months before you see results. Be sure to use the cream correctly as directed by your doctor.
You will notice a slow fading of dark spots.
Eliminate age spots or acne marks with microdermabrasion. In this process, your dermatologist will exfoliate your skin to remove the damaged outer layer of skin, revealing new, more evenly colored, younger looking skin underneath that will help remove discoloration or acne marks. If your dermatologist recommends microdermabrasion, the entire procedure lasts approximately 16 weeks and is performed every 2 weeks.
Microdermabrasion may cause redness or peeling of the skin.
If the discoloration is very dark, it may not disappear completely, but the color will lighten.
A deep chemical peel is performed to remove dark spots, freckles or acne marks. Your dermatologist will apply trichloroacetic acid or phenol to your skin to remove the top layer. This removes damaged skin cells to reveal new, younger and smoother skin underneath. Ask your dermatologist if a chemical peel would be helpful to you.
Skin that has had a deep chemical peel is expected to take 14-21 days to heal. During this time, you must apply an ointment to help the skin heal without scarring.
After a chemical peel, your skin can become very sensitive and you cannot wear makeup or sunlight. The skin may also become red, burning and itchy.
Remove blemishes, freckles and acne marks with laser treatment. Perform 1-2 laser treatments with high temperature to promote skin regeneration and fade discoloration or pimple marks. Performing several laser treatments can also fade freckles. Ask your doctor if laser treatment will work for you.
Laser treatment has some side effects. Pigmentation may temporarily crust or darken, but will slowly recover afterwards.
Laser treatments are less effective on darker skin tones or tanned skin.
Quickly freeze and lighten dark spots with cryotherapy. Dermatologists can use liquid nitrogen to freeze the skin cells that cause dark spots to form. As the damaged skin cells heal, the dark spots will slowly fade and lighten. The process is a little painful, but the results are quick. Talk to your dermatologist about whether cryotherapy is right for you.
After cryotherapy, the skin will be sore, swollen, red and blistered for a short time, but will recover slowly afterwards.
Treating the skin
Wash your face 2 times a day. Wash your face daily with a mild cleanser, using about the size of a coin. Smooth the cleanser onto your skin with your fingertips and then rinse off with cold water. Finish by patting your skin dry with a towel.
Dirt, sweat and excess oil can clog pores and trigger acne growth, which can lead to dark spots or pimple marks.
Treat acne with benzoyl peroxide, salicylic acid and vitamin A alcohol. Treating acne allows the skin to heal faster and helps prevent dark spots and acne marks from forming. Benzoyl peroxide kills the bacteria that cause acne, and salicylic acid prevents future breakouts. Vitamin A alcohol, on the other hand, keeps pores clean and perhaps lightens dark spots. Check the labels on your skin care products to see if they contain these ingredients.
You can find these ingredients in face washes, body washes, and acne creams. It may be necessary to purchase more than 1 product to benefit from these 3 ingredients. Check the labels of the products you choose to make sure they are safe to use together.
Don’t squeeze your pimples to avoid forming dark spots or pimple marks. You may be tempted to squeeze your pimples, but try not to touch your face with your fingers. Squeezing or picking a pimple will make it more likely that a dark spot or mark will form. It is best to use acne products and wait patiently for them to work.
If you suffer from acne, see a dermatologist to learn more about treatment options.
Choose non-comedogenic personal care products. Some skin care and hair care products can clog pores and cause pimples and other bumps on the skin. Check the labels on the products you choose to make sure they are non-comedogenic, which means they won’t clog your pores. This will help prevent you from getting acne and dark spots later on.
Check both the front and back labels.
Wear sunscreen with a sun protection factor of 30 when you go outside every day. Sun damage can cause age spots and freckles to form, so be sure to protect your skin. Before going outside each day, apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen with a sun protection factor of 30. If you are going to be outdoors for a while, reapply sunscreen according to label directions or every 2 hours.
Try not to go outside between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m., when the sun is at its most intense.
Tip: Covering your skin with clothing and wearing a wide-brimmed hat can also protect your skin from sun damage.
What works for one person may not work for you, so don’t be afraid to try other methods.
It usually takes several months to see visible results.
Do not use lemon juice to lighten your skin. It has not been proven to work and may cause a more uneven skin tone.
Some people claim that apple cider vinegar helps remove discoloration, but there is no scientific basis for this. Also, apple cider vinegar can irritate the skin, so it is best to avoid using it.
