I have the same problem. My dermatologist called it Hyper-Pigmentation, which is common among black people. Your best option is to go to a dermatologist and let him prescribe whatever is best for your particular skin, because if you experiment too much, and follow alot of other people's advice you could end up damaging your skin or burning it. Your skin is very delicate. That is what happened to me. But my dermatologist gave me Brevoxyl-8 and Retina Micro, these worked wonders. grin I don't know your situation, but if you cannot see a dermatologist, the best thing is to wash in the morning and at night with Dove soap for sensitive skin, and at night before bed rub Palmer's Cocoa Butter alll over your face to blend your skin and fade the black spots. I use these products and my face looks great now. Also never, ever use skin bleaches or lighteners cos these products will casue more acne and will burn your skin and make the spots worse, if you use these you will be sorry, trust me I been there and done that. Good Luck!! I hope you find something soon.

I know what you're going through also. I used to have a lot of pimples, then i started to use pro-active but i still had scars all over my faces. What i did was buy Vitamin-E capsules with gel, then i poke the capsule open and rub the gel all over my face. Vitamin-E is one of the #1 cures to marks on skin. I did it and it worked. It doens't take long for you to notice changes though. Good luck.

Try using Clear essence lemon plus vitamin c series.http://www.clearessence.com/clearessence.com/clearessence/productseries.php?cPath=44 . Use the perfecting serum or the smoothing cream. You can get it from any cosmetic shop or even in the market. It works really slowly but that's the beauty of it:it won't make u lighter. It may brighten your complexion a teeny weeny bit. I use the smoothing cream and I'm very dark but no one has commented that I've grown lighter. But I'm seeing results with each passing day.

Hi,

U can try Betnovate C Cream, though a bit scarce, u can only get it from a pharmacy. Does not lighten nor bleach and d spots fades overtime. It was a recommemded to me by a pharmacist. I"ve used it and is good.

The best product I have used in Glyquin fading cream. It is prescription, but you can order online. Also, try exfoliating with moist coffee grounds weekly. Moisturize the coffee grinds with honey & Vitamin E and let it stay on your face for about 15 minutes, and then rinse with warm water. Next, moisturize your face with Vitamin E. Also, take a Vitamin B complex pill twice daily. Do not pick the bumps because this causes the dark spots to be even worse. Also, if the dark spots are caused by ingrown hairs (not acne), try using tend skin and then shave (do not tweeze) the hair. I am female, and my skin is doing so much better now!

however if money plenty 4 ur hand then try [b]Laser facial resurfacing[/b]. it is a technique that can remove the upper layers of the skin on your face using a laser. This can improve the look of your skin without having full cosmetic surgery

Do you have Lush shops in your area? www.lush.co.uk If so, you can try out their Fresh Farmacy. It's really really effective for removing blackheads and spots.

If you dont have Lush, then try Ghana soap or a Close-up toothpaste + Dusting powder + Dettol face mask as we used to do in Boarding House.

Ask ur pharmacist for any cream with benoxyl peroxide. start with the one with 5% benoxyl peroxide, if ur face aint sensitive, use the 10% one. also make sure ur face is always clean and avoid cleansers and astringents with alcohol. it's usually too harsh on the face.

Was the friend leaving the facial scrub on overnight?

Try honey; real honey. It works for scars as well.

Don't listen to all these stuffs man!!!!

You live in Lagos! Go to a cosmetic store and get PALMER'S COCOA BUTTER CREAM, it'll gradually lighten freckles and spots on the skin, giving you a clearer complexion. Its combination with a medicated soap like Delta or Dettol will give you the best result and you will notice a change within a week. wink

Re: How Can I Get Rid Of Black Spots On My Face? by Marryanne(f): 12:15pm On Jul 01, 2008
Please whats the meaning of "BLACK SOAP" do u mean the yoruba traditional soap or any soap that is black? because i wish to try some of this things for my face whenever i ve pimples.

My advise for you is to see a dermatologist to priscribe wat u re to use because we have defferent skin and wat people are telling you to use may not be ok 4 u depending on your skin. Or you can use
Y-tacan or canestin cream (i may not get the spellings right) they work fine and it can't damage your skin or you can try traditional Herbs thats the best! Please make sure you use, the yoruba's call it "Agbo kokoro" its going to kill wats causing the pimples in the blood. So it will not come out again! thats the best! perhaps if u keep using all this facial wateva it may go for sometime but will later come back wit anger! so decide,

I think REAL HONEY is the best for you.


Provocative, revacative, mixacative would work for A and might worsen B's condition
