Tip Number 1: Use Your SPF!

You’ve probably already heard the shpiel about how important SPF is, but this extra step is extremely important to reduce and fade dark spots and hyperpigmentation.

Tip Number 2: Use a Chemical Exfoliant

Chemical exfoliants, like AHA and BHA acids, exfoliates and removes the dead skin from your face by breaking down that top dead layer of your skin. You’ll almost immediately notice a difference after using a chemical exfoliant. It helps with brightening your skin and helps improve skin texture. I recommend using a chemical exfoliant 1-2 times a week in the evening.
