The triple threat against dark spots

Dark Spot Fix is formulated with ingredients to combat dark spots and brighten your overall complexion.

2% Hydroquinone

Helps limit the skin from producing an excess amount of melanin, making it one of the most effective ingredients for helping to fade dark spots, even skin tone, and assist with overall lightening and brightening of the skin.

Kojic Acid

A byproduct of fermented rice and certain types of fungi, this protective antioxidant brightens skin and neutralizes environmental free radicals such as pollution, smoke, and toxic chemicals that can damage and discolor the skin.

Salicylic Acid

An exfoliating acid derived from willow bark that sloughs away and removes layers of dead skin, helping to smooth skin and improve overall texture.

"In the pursuit of clear, smooth, skin, I know melasma, hyperpigmentation, and age spots (what I like to call WISDOM spots!) can seem the hardest to fade away.

Banish dark marks caused by

Melasma

Patches of pigment and discoloration on skin, most commonly on the face. This common skin condition is generally caused by genetics and changes in hormones, and usually develops over time.

Hyperpigmentaion

Excess melanin production in the skin triggered by external trauma to skin, such as cuts, wounds, insect bites, and acne. Inflammation from some skin conditions such as psoriasis and eczema also can cause hyperpigmentation.

UV rays

Prolonged exposure to the sun and tanning beds can cause increased melanin production that appear as liver spots and age spots, commonly seen on areas exposed such as the face, hands, arms and shoulders.

The root of dark spots

The root of dark spots

The cause of darks spots from Melasma and Hyperpigmentation, are due to excessive melanin production in the skin.

Producing melanin is a natural function of our skin — it’s how we get the pigment in our skin, eyes, and hair, but the problem is when Melanocytes (which sit in the Dermis layer of our skin) are stimulated to release excess melanin deposits that form dark spots on the top layer (Epidermis) of our skin.

The triggers can range from:
• UV exposure
• Hormones /genetics
• Acne, cuts, wounds, insect bites
