This Dark Spot Cream Can Deliver Visible Results in Just 2 Weeks featured image

One measly little dark spot can seemingly take over your entire complexion. When you look in the mirror, that’s all you see. Dark spots are usually the result of sun damage, as UV exposure speeds up the production of melanin in the skin. They can also be left behind after an acne breakout. Sunscreen is one of the most critical products to defend against dark spots. But, if you’ve noticed one (or maybe a few) that have already popped up, SkinMedica Even & Correct Dark Spot Cream is a fast-acting solution.

The Benefits

I have annoying dark spot on my temple area, which dermatologists have told me is a very common place for hyperpigmentation. This is because our sunglasses often rub off our sunscreen, and we don’t notice until it’s too late and the damage is done. You may also notice more dark spots along the left side of your face, which is the side exposed to UV rays through the window as you drive.

Many dark spot treatments I’ve tried take months to see a result. This one is clinically proven to show visible results in as early as two weeks, with continued improvement over 12 weeks. The formula acts fast thanks to its incredibly powerful ingredient lineup, which includes the brand’s proprietary LTN Complex. This is a mix of ultra-concentrated lotus sprout extract, tranexamic acid and niacinamide, which work together to reduce discoloration and brighten the skin. It also includes key exfoliating agents, such as glycolic acid and 0.25-percent retinol. These help speed up cell turnover to shed those discolored skin cells faster.

Key Ingredients

Lotus sprout extract, tranexamic acid, niacinamide, retinol, glycolic acid, vitamin C, and a kojic acid derivative

How to Use It

The cream contains retinol and glycolic acid (an alphahydroxy acid), so it should only be used at night. Additionally, be sure to use sunscreen the following morning before going outside. Retinol and AHAs can increase the skin’s sensitivity to the sun. You only need a little bit for each dark spot, so the tube lasts a long time. I noticed a little bit of dryness after using it a couple times, which I expected because of the retinol. However, my skin got used to it quickly. Because of this, I recommend using a moisturizer or night cream on top, after giving the Dark Spot Cream a minute to absorb.
