You don't have to live with pigmentation forever!

Hyperpigmentation, or dark spots as most of us call it, is a common skin issue that affects basically everyone. It could be caused by sun damage, aging, or acne, and it falls under two general categories—the kind that fades almost immediately and the kind that just won't leave you alone. And if you're currently dealing with the latter, you should definitely consider visiting your dermatologist for a laser treatment. You can also speed up the process by adding a spot corrector to your skincare routine, for which we list efficient options below:

1. Kiehl's Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Solution

This serum combines the brightening properties of vitamin C with birch extract and peony extract to prevent discoloration and improve the skin's overall tone and maintain its elasticity. As a bonus, it contains a small percentage of salicylic acid that'll gently treat and prevent breakouts, too.

2. Peter Thomas Roth Potent-C Vitamin C Targeted Spot Brightener

This spot treatment uses a stable form of vitamin C called THD Ascorbate. Said to be 50 times more powerful than traditional vitamin C, it is fortified by antioxidants from vitamin E and ferulic acid. Apply it directly over a spot to work its magic both day and night.

5. Murad Retinol Youth Renewal Serum

Although it claims to smoothe mainly fine lines and wrinkles, the way this serum encourages cell turnover using retinol can also even out your skin tone and improve the texture leftover from breakouts.

6. Cosrx Mela 14 White Ampule

This ampoule treats dull and uneven skin tone with a brightening complex composed of apple fruit water and niacinamide. The 14 in its name isn't a random number, by the way—it's actually the number of days it claims to give you a brighter complexion!

7. Sisley Phyto-Blanc Intensive Dark Spot Corrector

Sisley's take on a spot corrector comes in a convenient roller that deposits a lightening and exfoliating blend of ingredients that treats different kinds of pigmentation on the skin directly. It also inhibits an area's melanin production when applied frequently, which prevents spots from darkening.
