#GROOMING: Treating Your Skin Correctly for Dark Spots

Every now and then our skin goes through a phase where dark spots, uneven tones, and even blemishes are a thing. It’s not necessarily a train-smash, however, a little bit of love could go a long way to correcting it and getting your skin and face back to its original state of affairs. There are a variety of products out in the market to help you get this right. We look at a selection of products from a singular family to get you started.

Kiehl’s Clearly Corrective Exfoliator is a high-performance exfoliating cleanser. Effectively cleans and exfoliates pores to minimize skin irregularities and dullness for a noticeably brighter complexion. The cleanser helps boost the skin’s moisture levels and maintain balance, leaving the skin refreshed, soft, smooth and clean.

Kiehl’s Clearly Corrective Clarity-Activating Toner is an advanced skin retexturizing toner. The high-performance toner gently retextures skin, infusing it with hydrating actives for noticeably cleaner and softer skin; while the Activated C helps visibly diminish dark spots and skin discoloration.

If you’re looking for a fast absorbing, non-greasy protective moisturiser, look no further that Kiehl’s Clearly Corrective Brightening and Smoothing Moisture Treatment. Infusing powerful active ingredients for an immediate glow, the treatment provides 24-hour hydration while visibly diminishing dark spots. Activated C helps clear skin irregularities and works to restore the skin’s natural clarity.

Sometimes our skin needs a little bit of extra help to get it to where we need it to be. Sometimes it’s masking, other times a spritz throughout the day and sometimes we require a serum. For skin irregularity and dark spot correcting, Kiehl’s offers Brightening and Smoothing Treatment Water, as well as the Dark Spot Solution. Bother lightweight and fast absorbing, they offer both on-the-go solutions, as well as overnight opportunities. Incorporate ingredients such as Activated C (a Vitamin C derivative), illuminating minerals and Licorice Root, expect brighter, clearer, hydrated skin.

With any set of skincare products you administer, there are always the basics to take into account. A good dose of nightly sleep is always required, healthy amounts of water daily is recommended and avoiding excessive intakes of unhealthy foods can all help keep your skin healthier for longer.
