dermatologist explains best treatments for skin hyperpigmentation and dark spots

Are you noticing more hyperpigmentation and dark spots after Labor Day? It’s pretty common to start wanting to get rid of uneven skin pigment around this time of year.

Yes, summer sun and lingering outdoors is yummy, but it takes a toll on your skin. This year, COVID has driven us outdoors more than ever, at least here in California where outdoor dining and activities are allowed but many indoor options are still closed.

As a dermatologist, I'm often asked to explain the best treatments for dark spots and hyperpigmentation.

There are clinically proven ingredients built into highly effective skin care products.

When you use more than one pigment fighting ingredient in a routine designed to maximize skin penetration, the results treating skin pigment problems can be dramatic.

Have you had a frustrating time trying to control dark spots with skin care in the past?
