We all have dealt with dark spots (hyperpigmentation) on our skin before. Whether if it's on your face, neck chest, arms etc. It's so annoying! Sometimes that can be the only thing holding you back from perfectly clear skin. Dark spots a.k.a hyperpigmentation is an excess of melanin in parts of the skin, this usually occurs after your acne has gone away, or from being in direct sunlight for too long. It's very common and it happens to both women and men of all skin tones. But how to do we get rid of them, better yet, how do we stop them from occurring?
First of all, hyperpigmentation is bound to happen to all of us because we're exposed to sunlight. Though wearing SPF (sunscreen) will help to prevent your dark spots from multiplying and getting even darker. Being someone who has dealt with acne for years, We've learned pretty well on how to treat it. But now that our acne is gone, we were left with SO MANY dark spots on our face.
It seemed like no matter what we did, they kept getting worse! They were on our forehead, cheeks, nose, chin, everywhere! I've tried so many different oils and mud masks, and though they worked for our acne, they never got rid of the dark spots.
Just recently, the skincare brand Ole Henriksen has came out with a new toner called the Glow2OH Dark Spot Toner. Being familiar with the Ole Henriksen brand and loving their products, we were really excited to try this toner. The toner claims that you should start seeing your dark spots disappear in as little as 7 days. Not only does it claim to get rid of dark spots, it also claims to target fine lines and wrinkles. The Ole Henriksen website states that, "this potent toner is supercharged with a high concentration of AHAs (glycolic and lactic acids) and witch hazel water." We went into giving this toner a try with a very open mind that this product will work for us. It sounds very promising considering the ingredients and our history of loving this brand's other products as well. After purchasing the product, I immediately began using it. I would apply it 2-3 times a day after cleansing my skin. Honestly after 3 or 4 days I instantly saw results! My dark spots weren't completely gone but they were fading, and on the 6th day they were completely gone. Now, everyone's results are going to be different depending on how dark your hyperpigmentation is, and how many you have. But the great news is that IT ACTUALLY WORKS!
Now, we've been using the toner for about 3 weeks and I haven't had one dark spot re-appear! Remember, you still have to keep up with your normal skincare routine of cleansing and moisturizing because this doesn't help/ prevent acne, but only helps erase dark spots.
