  • Use hydroquinone creams and serums. These are quick and effective at bleaching the skin and getting rid of dark spots. Be wary though, as this ingredient can cause redness and irritation.
  • Use retinoid solultions. These also work very well, and they're not as abrasive as hydroquinone creams.
  • Peels and laser treatments are costly but they can get rid of dark spots and scars almost instantly with minimal damage to the skin.
  • Natural homemade treatments are cheap and easy to apply, but do require time and patience. Our favorite natural spot treatments are: lemons, tomatoes, aloe vera, milk and yogurt, turmeric, baking soda, and papaya.
