Brown spots or uneven skin tone is the tattle tail sign of aging skin. It is probably why they are commonly referred to as age spots. They also could be from pregnancy or other hormonal issues. Either way, uneven skin tone is not youthful.
As we age it takes a lot more to maintain skin tone or repair damage we have done to our skin over the years. Laser treatments are becoming quite popular but usually cost $500 to $1500.00 depending on the area, intensity, etc. There will also be the down time from work or even going out in the sun. Not to mention, it is a pretty intense procedure.
AT Home Treatments
Most people opt for an at home treatment, I looked on the web and found a lot of sites that recommend, lemons, caster oil and baking soda. I can’t find any studies conducted on these web based recommended items for uneven skin tone.
Even so, I decided to try them for a bit. Even after, 90 days, I didn’t see too much of a change. I thought I was going to stay with that dark spot under my right eye for forever and it seemed to be getting darker.
I saw the studies and I used creams with the niacinamide as an ingredient. While it made my skin softer and more hydrated. I didn’t see too much improvement in that brown spot. You certainly couldn’t see the brown spot under my makeup, but I could tell it was getting darker.
I decided to start using it every night and morning. Mainly, using The Ordinary’s Niacinamide. If my skin felt really dry that day I would use my lotions with it in but never going without it in some form.
IT WORKED. Holy crap, it worked. So shocked. My dark brown spot on the top of my right check bone right below my eye. It is so much less noticeable even with all of my makeup off, in fact, I can hardly see it at all anymore.
I am so pleased with the results. So much so, that I have told quite a few people. Okay, a lot of people. I want them all to have terrific results. I want everyone to feel good about their skin with or without their makeup.
So far, only one has said anything to me about her results and she is getting two more bottles for her girls. She has noticed that her skin in smoother and that she didn’t have any break outs. She has only used it for a short time period, however.
It is one thing to know it is great for your skin and is helping to prevent aging. But it is quite another to have results that you can actually see and feel. I will not doubt it again.
Happy even skin tone!
