InStyle.com: Your Biggest Skincare Problems, Solved!

Dark Spots

Anyone who has spent any time at all in the sun is no stranger to dark spots—the localized increase in melanin is a widely known result of UV exposure. “Age spots, also known as liver spots, solar lentigines, and sun spots are generally a result of prolonged exposure to the sun,” Dr. Frank told InStyle.com. “This increases the production of melanin and leads to the generation of rough pigmentations on uncovered parts of the skin. When excess melanin is generated in a certain area, it leads to a brownish spot on the skin.”

His suggestion to combat the unwanted blemishes? “At-home exfoliation encourages cell turnover, which in turn will reduce pigmentation to help fade dark spots,” he said. Combine an at-home exfoliator like the Clarisonic Sonic Skin Cleansing System ($199) with a potent cream like GoodSkin Labs’ Equinol Dark Spot Concentrate ($39) for maximum spot-fighting results.
