How To Get Rid Of Dark Spots

Acne is bad enough on it's own without throwing the resulting dark spots into the mix. You go through all the work trying to conceal them, and just hen you think they are gone, you end up with an ugly dark spot. 

The physical and emotional effects of acne can last a long time, especially if you had a rough battle with it in high school like myself. There isn't a magic wand that can get rid of them overnight, however; there are a few good products on the market that can really help. 

I have a few spots in particular on the bag of my legs and inner thighs, as well as the back of my shoulder, that I want gone. I am on the hunt for the perfect products to get rid of them and with a lot of research, here are the best 8 products on the market:
1. Murad Post-Acne Spot Lightening Gel 1oz. $60
2. Clinique Even Better Clinical Dark Spot Corrector 1oz. $49.50
3. Shiseido White Lucent Total Brightening Serum 1oz. $125
4. Kiehls Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Solution 1oz. $49.50
5. Elizabeth Arden Prevage Anti-Aging Targeted Skin Tone Corrector 1oz. $125
6. Biosmose Dark Spot Corrector 1oz. $99
7. Guerlain Abeille Royale Dark Spot Corrector Pore Minimizer Serum 10z. $150
8. Fresh Peony Spot-Correcting Brightening Essence 1oz. $67

"Post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation are red or brown marks that usually go away when you gently stretch out the skin", says NY based dermatologist Sejal Shah, MD. "These marks can take 3-6 months to go away on their own, and you can expedite the process with a diligent treatment of topical retinoids, Vitamin C serums, sunscreen, and over-the-counter brighteners."

What Causes Acne Marks & Scars?
"When your skin is opened up, like when you pop a pimple, and then closes back together, you can get abnormal pigmentation, texture, and tone that looks different from the rest of your skin."

The best thing you can do ... LEAVE THEM ALONE!
Resist picking, poking, and touching pimples so they are less likely to leave scars or marks.
