8 powerful ways to banish dark spots from the face – healthytalk8

Dark Spots

Banish dark spots are one of the toughest things that acne and pimples leave after occurring.

Dark spots are one of the worst things, which take months to go on their own, so make sure to talk to a dermatologist.

In addition, Age spots known as solar lentigines are caused by excessive melanin production due to UV exposure, and environmental factors.

Dark spots also known as hyperpigmentation can occur in any part of the body, mostly on the face, arms, and hands, which is more shown on darker skin.

I hate this because it lowers your self-confidence, and treating it naturally becomes very difficult, and both males and females face it.

So here are the top 8 powerful ways to banish dark spots on the face are:

Vitamin C Serum

Several studies have shown that vitamin C serum helps in lightening the dark spots (hyperpigmentation)

Vitamin C has anti-inflammation and antioxidant properties which help in reducing inflammation like redness, pimples, and irritation (2)

In a new study 30 patients were included and divided into 2 teams, 1st team used vitamin C serum and the other used surgery.

Results showed that vitamin C infection showed better results in comparison to surgical technique.

The usage of vitamin C injection for depigmentation showed comparative results to the conventional surgical technique.

People who have acne, and dry skin, are concerned with ageing and most people who want to improve their skin health should use vitamin C serum.

Use Sunscreen

Always use sunscreen it not only prevents skin from darkening, acne, and pimples it also prevents skin from skin cancer.

A 2020 study found that using sunscreen daily decreases the 50% chance of production of melanin compared to non-users.

Sunlight is a good source of vitamin D (maintain bone health) which is essential for eye, and hair health.

A new study has shown using sunscreen daily reduces fine lines, and wrinkles to an extent level, compared to others.

Make sure to use a broad-spectrum sunscreen that works as a shield on your skin as well as protects skin from both UV-A and UV-B rays.


It is a form of vitamin A, which has a powerful ingredient that can reduce dark spots to an extent level.

Studies showed that retinol can be an effective way to lighten the dark spots by exfoliating and producing melanin.

Exfoliation: It doesn’t remove dead skin it just sheds the skin’s outer layer more fast which reveals bright skin and less dark spots.

Regulate melanin production: Melanin is responsible for eye and hair colour, and excessive melanin production leads to dark spots.

So retinol increases production but in a regulating manner, and prevents further darkening and promoting even skin tone.


Exfoliating is the best way to remove uneven skin tone, which means removing upper dead skin cells and revealing new bright skin.

You can make your natural exfoliation at home with these simple steps include:

Oatmeal Scrub: It is great for sensitive skin, grind oats and make it fine powder, then mix 1 tbsp of oat flour with 2 tbsp of honey or yogurt to create a paste.

Sugar Scrub: Great for normal skin, combine 1 tbsp of brown sugar (make it powder) with 1 tbsp of olive oil or coconut oil to create a paste.

Gently massage in a circular motion for 1 to 2 minutes, then rinse with lukewarm water.

Additional tips

Patch test: Take a patch test before applying any new thing over the face, because some ingredients may react with your skin and lead to skin irritation.

Gentle massage: Avoid harsh substances applied over the face, or make them fine powder it prevents skin wounds (4)

Moisturize: Use moisturizer to prevent dryness after applying moisturizer.

Overall, promoting brightens skin by removing dead skin cells, which also fade dark spots from the skin.

Tranexamic Acid

It is a medicine that is used for reducing or prevent excessive bleeding such as:

  • Heavy bleeding during periods
  • nosebleeding
  • excessive bleeding during surgery

Tranexamic acid might help prevent the melanin deposit in the skin which banishes the darks spots and enhances even skin tone.

Natural Remedies

There are several natural remedies contain that unique properties that have been proven to fade the dark spots.

Here are natural remedies with research-proven are:

Licorice root: It contains glabridin, which has been known to reduce the production of melanin, (excessive melanin leads to dark spots)

Soybean: Soy contains several isoflavones (that have been used for hormonal disorders) which reduce hyperpigmentation production.

Lemon juice: It is a natural bleaching agent due to citric acid (which removes the upper layer of skin like exploiting.

Turmeric: It contains curcumin which has antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties.

Its yellow-coloured chemical called “curcumin” is often used in the field of cosmetics, food colouring, and several medicines.

Try Licorice Extract

Licorice extract also known as the root of the licorice plant has been used for centuries in medicines.

I use it during sore throat, which is good but also increases the body heat.

But for dark spots, it contains “glabridin” which helps in reducing dark spots by reducing the tyrosinase (an enzyme for making melanin).

A 2022 study revealed that it enhances absorption, and may help reduce the dark spots on the skin

Doctor Consultation

Before using any medicines, especially on the face make sure to consult with a dermatologist to prevent further issues.

If you have severe dark spots, home remedies take time to fade, so talk to a dermatologist for a proper diagnosis.

healthytalk8 does not consider any medicines, and home-remedies because what works for one persons doesn’t mean work same for others.

Do not take medicine without doctor’s consultation, because I experienced it, where without prescribed medicine worse the face skin.

Down Line

Dark spots occur due to acne, sun exposure, hormone imbalance, pollution, age, stomach health, and blue light.

It disappears on its own, but it takes too much time, so it is important to consult a dermatologist for proper treatment.

There are several ways to banish dark spots like retinol, and sunscreen to prevent them from darkening, and get a doctor’s consultation.
