Tips To Help Fade Sunspots On Your Face


Sunspots are a leftover sign that you've been out in the sun unprotected for too long. These spots are usually brown in color and appear to be a stain on the face, sometimes they are in smaller patches, or they could be in larger patches on the skin. Sunspots may fade with time or can be covered with makeup, but if you want them completely gone from your skin, there are dermatological ways to remove these spots. Cosmetic dermatology treatments may help you fade your sunspots, and there are other things you can do as well. Read on for some helpful information.

Scrub Your Skin

Use a facial skin scrub to scrub your skin to remove dead skin patches and to help to improve cell regrowth. Use a facial scrub that is made for the face. Only use a scrub on your skin once or twice per week. Discontinue using it if you have any side effects from the scrubbing, such as redness or irritation. Your skin may dry out from too much facial scrub, which can also be harmful to the skin.

Apply Retinol Cream

Retinols can help promote skin cell turnover and also help to even out your skin tone and texture. Apply a retinol cream to the skin daily and follow the manufacturer's instructions on when to apply this cream and how much. Retinol cream can be found at most pharmacies or big box stores.

Use A Derma Roller

A derma roller can be used to improve skin cell regrowth and help to clean out your pores as well. Use a derma roller before you go to bed at night and use it in the proper manner. You should apply the roller with soft and gentle pressure, so as to not damage your skin. Roll the skin horizontally, vertically, and then at an angle going up and an angle going down. Use the derma roller a few times per week to improve your skin. 

Wear Sunscreen

Apply sunscreen to the face when you're outside in the sun. Sunscreen will help prevent further sunspots and help to prevent the darkening of the sunspots you already have. Apply sunscreen to the face and other parts of the body that are in the sun. Keep your skin covered as much as possible when in the sun as well to protect it from the sun's harmful rays.

If you have sunspots, there are things you can do to help fade them. Talk to your dermatologist about what other things you can do to fade the sunspots on your face.

 Grow Old Gracefully with the Help of a Dermatologist

While I wasn't fond the reason I had to visit a dermatologist when I was a teenager (I had severe acne that she helped me manage), I feel lucky to have had the experience of visiting a dermatologist and learning just what they can do to help me have great-looking skin. I wasn't happy when I got my first wrinkle at about 30; my acne had just cleared up, and I wanted to enjoy having skin I finally loved for at least a few years! With a little more help from my dermatologist, I am now in my 50s, and many people think I am much younger than I am due to the amazing anti-aging treatments my dermatologist gives me. I want to teach what I have learned about skincare to others who need the advice, so please come back often for new skincare tips!
