Do you struggle with hyperpigmented skin?
A specific compound in our skin, melanin, is responsible for giving our skin, eyes, and hair their natural color. And the more melanin your body produces, the darker the color.
Hyperpigmentation occurs as a result of the over-production of melanin in some parts of the skin, causing them to appear in a darker hue. These dark spots are not typically a cause for concern, but they can make the face look patchy and uneven.
And that’s what OROGOLD is here to help you with! Today, we’ll be discussing how to fade the visibility of dark spots on the skin, so that you can enjoy an even and bright appearance once again.
Deep Peeling Treatments
Have you tried exfoliating your skin to fade the look of dark spots? We’re not talking about scrubs; those are physical exfoliants. Although they might help too, chemical exfoliants are known to work on a deeper level within your skin. Hence the term “deep peeling.” So, you’re bound to notice better results with the latter.
If you’re new to the world of chemical exfoliants and deep peeling solutions, don’t worry because we’ve got it covered! Unlike physical exfoliants that rely on rubbing off dead cells, chemical exfoliants work by loosening the bonds between the cells. These formulas incorporate acids and enzymes to break down the sugars and proteins holding the dead cells together in the upper layer of the skin. This way, there are no abrasive techniques involved.
Deep peeling treatments work exceptionally well for alleviating the look of acne, fine lines, and wrinkles. They can smooth out the appearance of your skin’s texture and tone, giving it a vibrant glow! And that’s just scratching the surface; there are a whole host of benefits that chemical peels offer. Getting rid of dead cells via chemical exfoliation can help your skin absorb your spot treatments and serums better, making them much more effective.
But let’s move on to the most common acids you’d find in your deep peeling solutions. Basically, there are three types of chemical peels: superficial, medium-depth, and deep peeling. Superficial peels only penetrate your skin’s outer layer, medium-depth peels work on the entire epidermis, and deep peeling solutions work on the mid-reticular dermis.
What’s in a Deep Peeling Product?
Glycolic acid is among the most common AHAs used to make a deep peeling solution. Its molecules are the smallest-sized ones when compared to other AHAs. This makes it easy for glycolic acid to absorb into your skin and exfoliate it better. This acid works by dissolving the “glue” that holds dead, darkened skin cells.
But if you feel like your skin is a little too sensitive to deal with the drying effects that glycolic acid can have, mandelic acid should be your go-to! The chemical is derived from bitter almonds and has the largest molecules compared to all other AHAs. But what does that mean for your skin? It means mandelic acid penetrates your skin slowly, without leading to any irritation. Mandelic acid is a premium skincare ingredient when it comes to diminishing the look of acne, and it also works wonders for fading the visibility of dark spots on your face!

Incorporate These Essential Vitamins Into Your Routine
Vitamins play a powerful role in keeping us happy and healthy. And that doesn’t just go for our body. Vitamins have sensational topical benefits that can keep your skin looking healthy and fresh.
There are many vitamins that play a key role in lightening the skin, thereby reducing the look of dark spots. But the top three that we’d recommend are vitamin A, vitamin C, and vitamin E. You can incorporate vitamins in the form of cleansers, serums, moisturizers, and exfoliants. But how do they help fade the visibility of dark spots?
- Vitamin A (the family of retinoids) is known to enhance your complexion’s tone and texture by diminishing the appearance of photoaging. It works exceptionally well if you have dark spots as a result of acne.
- Vitamin C is another great skincare ingredient because of how it can help brighten the look of dark spots on your skin left behind as a result of pimples. It also works great to reduce the look of melasma and sun spots.
- Vitamin E has a wide range of uses when applied to the skin. It helps to reduce the look of age spots, dull skin, and discoloration. It’s also been widely incorporated into skincare for lightening the look of acne scars, making your skin appear brighter.
The 24K Vitamin C Booster Serum
Our 24K Vitamin C Booster Serum is a great formula to help you reduce the look of dark spots.
This opulent solution is enriched with two forms of Vitamin C; Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate and Ascorbyl Palmitate, as well as Retinyl Palmitate (Vitamin A), and Tocopheryl Acetate (Vitamin E).
These ingredients work wonderfully to smooth the look of wrinkles and fine lines while also evening out the appearance of your skin tone. This serum is great for making your skin appear bright and radiant!

Use Aloe Vera
Aloe Vera is a common plant that’s famed for changing the skincare game! Among its many skin-lovin’ properties, it works great to fade the look of dark posts. The plant contains a compound known as aloesin that can help in inhibiting the visible effects of hyperpigmentation. Research has shown that aloesin can help diminish the look of dark spots caused by UV-B rays.
Here’s how you can incorporate aloe vera into your nighttime skincare routine:
- Extract aloe vera gel from the plant and apply it to dark spots on your face. Leave it on overnight.
- Rinse in the morning with lukewarm water.
- Repeat these steps daily until you see visible improvement in the look of your dark patches.
Never Skimp on Sunscreen!
Using sunblock is a skincare must that you can’t go a single day without.
Sun spots are caused as a protective response from the body against UV rays. The increased pigmentation is a precautionary action to prevent burnt skin. So, while you might think that you’re getting a cool tan, it’s just your skin trying to stay shielded. The damage later surfaces in the form of dark spots on your face. But you can stop the cycle from happening by incorporating SPF 30+ in your routine.
OROGOLD has just the skincare product you need to help against pigmented skin. Our 24K Skin Tone SPF 30 is a sensational broad-spectrum sunscreen that neutralizes UV rays while keeping your skin feeling smooth and fresh.
What Causes Dark Spots on the Face in the First Place?
Before you can get to the point of managing your dark spots, it’s important to know what the root cause is. Typically, dark spots are a given with aging as your skin’s pigment cells become overactive due to prolonged UV exposure.
Your face, arms, feet, and hands are typically the most exposed to sun rays. That’s why you’ll often find dark spots in these areas of the body. The UV rays speed up your body’s production of melanin, causing parts of your skin to appear darker. Therefore, most people refer to dark spots as aging spots, liver spots, or sun spots.
Although this is the most common cause, there could be other reasons you’re experiencing dark spots on your skin:
- Acne and Wounds: Even if you don’t pop them, pimples can leave dark spots on your face. As pimples heal, your skin sometimes produces excess melanin to make up for the damage. But these spots fade away much faster compared to those left by popped pimples. So, you better keep those hands away! In a similar manner, your skin develops dark spots after an insect bite or a cut as it heals. These tend to fade away as time passes.
- Tanning Beds: Some people believe it’s possible to outwit the tanning process with artificial equipment. But these are even more harmful to your skin. Not only do tanning beds lead to dark spots, but they also elevate your chances of developing melanoma (skin cancer).
- Other Skin Conditions: Inflammation is another culprit when it comes to dark spots on the skin. The phenomenon is known as PIH (Post-Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation) and it typically occurs as a result of skin conditions like eczema, dermatitis, and psoriasis.
- Hormonal Imbalance: Dark spots that occur from hormonal changes are referred to as Melasma. This skin condition causes small-scale patches of discolored skin. It’s more common among women, especially when undergoing pregnancy.
