Dark Spot Correctors


Whether you have self-induced dark spots on your skin as a result of too much sun or wish to prevent any appearing on your clear complexion, we've rounded up the pigmentation combating (and reducing) must-buys for face, neck and décolleté.
Want to know what you should be looking out for? “The best ingredients for treating dark spots are Retinol, AHA's and BHA's,” says make-up artist Jenny Coombs. “Exfoliating treatments and serums are usually the most effective products and it’s best to use them at night time (unless otherwise stated), as some can make your skin sensitive to the sun.”
Try your product of choice for three to six months, and if you’ve still had no luck, head to a dermatologist who can determine if you’re suffering from something more serious like melasma.
And if you want to know how to cover up your dark spots in the meantime…“Apply your foundation or tinted moisturiser as usual, then use a dry, long-lasting concealer such as Laura Mercier's Secret Camouflage with a fine brush to subtly spot conceal,” says Coombs. “Finally, set your makeup with a fine translucent powder using a fluffy brush for a natural finish.”
