Do sun spot removal creams actually work?
As I have gotten older I have seen some discoloration on my cheeks. I believe they are sun spots caused mostly in my younger days when I thought sunscreen didn't apply to me because of my olive tone skin. Are there any creams that I could apply to diminish some of the spots on my cheeks?
I can say with confidence that sunspot removal creams do work. I used a prescription cream that I applied once in the morning and once at night. For my morning application, I applied a light layer of cream over my sunscreen. After about 3 months, the hyperpigmentation on my back and hands had significantly faded. The fade cream contains a lightening agent which targets the brown spots. I can honestly say that after these past 3 months, my skin is literally glowing and looks so healthy. Over the counter dark spot correctors are available at drugstores, but I recommend seeing your dermatologist and get a prescription if the hyperpigmentation is severe. After 6 months of use with the prescription cream, I am going to switch to an over the counter spot corrector to maintain my results and keep new spots from forming.
