Unless you’re one of the lucky ladies in this world to be born with flawless skin (Keira Knightley, if you’re reading this, we’re talking to you) you’ve probably struggled with skin imperfections at some point or another. Dark spots, in particular, are a sore spot for anyone who has to deal with them. Some cases are severe enough to need the help of a dermatologist, but many cases can be helped with the best dark spot correctors around, and aren’t serious enough for professional help even though they still need attention and care. To help you understand where those dark spots are coming from, below is a list of possible reasons you could have dark spots:

  • Genes: Sometimes the luck of the draw isn’t so lucky, and our skin is just naturally unevenly pigmented. Often spots can go away with time, but some stay unless they’re treated.
  • Sun Damage: This can be prevented by using a strong enough SPF (all year long, not just in the summer) but if you’ve got dark spots from sun damage, you can treat them.
  • Acne Scars: As much as you may want to end a pimple’s life immediately, it’s best not to touch it besides treating it with face wash. Popping zits can lead to scarring and dark spots that are a way worse problem to deal with than the original pimple.

We’ve taken a look around for some of the best dark spot correctors at every price range to bring you solutions to your dark problems. Take a look at our picks for favorite dark spot correctors and let us know which works for you! Remember, a huge way to prevent dark spots from happening in the first place is to wear sunscreen every day, even when it’s not sunny outside. Prevention is key, ladies!
