Treating Dark Spots on Black Skin

Dark spots on black skin usually occurs on the face, neck and sometimes chest areas. Most often, they come about as a result of an inflammation of the skin or from popping pimples or acne which leaves a scar. Others experience this due to hyper-pigmentation. Generally, dark spots are difficult to treat but they are still treatable. Here are some tips on how to treat them.

Do nothing

This isn't probably what you signed up to read but hear us out. The do-nothing approach works - sometimes. Some spots do go away on their own especially if they're hormonal. Such as hyper-pigmentation that occurs during the time of the month or pregnancy. The best approach is to leave it alone. They'll eventually clear.

Lemon juice

Lemon juice contains loads of Vitamin C which helps even the skin tone. When using this option, spot treatment is advised. Apply the lemon juice directly to the affected part instead of the entire face. Wash off after a few minutes and moisturize. Do this consistently till the dark spots clear.


Don't let this big word frighten you. It's just a notch higher and more effective than your regular exfoliation routine. Microdermabrasion typically removes the outer layer and gently sands your skin for an even skin tone. It's also minimally invasive and can be done at a regular spa.

Chemical peels

These are advanced treatments where a chemical solution is applied to your face causing the skin on the surface to peel off. It's advisable to do this with a recommended dermatologist only. Please do not try this on your own without supervision.

Soaps and Masks

Certain soaps and masks are specifically formulated to treat dark spots. The Shea Butter Soaps from Kaydua Luxury were specially formulated to treat dark spots and acne for a much healthier skin. When used concurrently with the Face and Body Scrub as well as the Facial Masks, the chances of the acne and dark spots returning becomes significantly lower. The key here is to be consistent. 

Eliminate the source

Dark spots sometimes occur as a result of something we introduced into our system. It might be new products, a new diet, eating too much sugar and the like. When it comes to new products, our skin might undergo purging leading to the formation of acne - in other words getting used to the new products which could last anytime between 4 to 6 weeks. The do-nothing approach here is key. For the other issues mentioned, it's best to eliminate the source. 

Hopefully, these pointers would give us more confidence when dealing with acne and dark spots. For further consultation on skin care, please do not hesitate to contact Kaydua Luxury on +233 596 050 073 or @kaydualuxury via Facebook and Instagram
