Dark spots can be caused by several things - sun exposure, hormonal changes, hair removal, scarring and ageing skin.
To achieve a more even complexion one can turn to topical and oral treatments to boost and rejuvenate your skin. So, you don’t have to turn to harmful chemical peels or invasive treatments.
Here are some restorative treatments for dark marks that will have your skin looking radiant.
Skincare products that contain natural ingredients
POND’S has a variety of the best skin care products for every skin type and the products are known for helping to treat uneven skin tone. Their products contain ingredients like Pro-Vitamin B3, which works deep inside your skin, reducing dark marks and leaving you looking bright and radiant. This colour complex range is thus specially designed to boost your skin and treat dark marks.
Lemon and yogurt
You could further complement this skin treatment regime with occasional lemon and yogurt face masks to prevent a dull complexion. Lemon has a natural bleaching effect that can lighten skin discolouration, while yogurt has amazing skin cleansing properties.
Vitamin E and aloe vera
Vitamin E, applied topically or taken orally, is a classic treatment for uneven skin. Vitamin E is an antioxidant that targets and counteracts the free radicals responsible for ageing. This promotes the repair of damaged cells.
Also consider the use of aloe vera which contains vitamins A, B, C and E as well as beta-carotene. These vitamins and minerals are greatly beneficial for anti-ageing and depigmentation.
Almond oil is another great standby which is great for preventing and reducing dark marks. Almonds are loaded with vitamins A, B2, B6, D, and E as well as oleic and linoleic acids, unsaturated fatty acids and phytosterols - ll of which are encased in the glorious shell of an almond. Apply almond oil to your skin for a great direct treatment. Alternatively, eat 5 almonds before breakfast every morning to promote these effects in the longer term.
In its raw form is not only a yummy breakfast but is great for your skin too. It has natural cleansing properties thanks to the saponins it contains. Saponins are a substance characterised by its soap-like foaming properties. Oats are also a brilliant topical anti-inflammatory which helps to soothe conditions such as acne. This wonder food is phenomenal as an oil balancer and is therefore great for both dry and oily skin.
So off you go! Use these natural products in conjunction with your POND’S beauty regime and you’ll be well on your way to smooth and luminous skin and a more confident self.
