Our skin changes over time and, unfortunately, those changes can come in the form of dark spots (also known as hyperpigmentation). Whether caused by acne, inflammation or soaking up too much sun, dark spots can be a nuisance to cover up and hide, which is why investing in a dark spot serum could be vital to your skin routine. 

No matter how many eye creams or skincare devices you apply to your skin, sometimes they're not enough to keep it looking young and fresh. If you're tired of staring at scars and areas of hyperpigmentation, though, shoppers think they may have found the solution.

Topicals Faded serum has quickly become a fan favorite among shoppers. With a 4.5 star overall rating, this serum has proven to be a go-to for helping skin revive its natural glow. The brand describes the formula as “gel-like” with ingredients including Centella asiatica leaf extract, kojic acid, azelaic acid and licorice root extract to help balance skin tone, smooth any rough skin and revive its appearance.

If you're dealing with sun damage, acne scars or just stubborn dark spots, this formula was made to fade them back to your skin's natural look. It's also free of fragrance and dyes and isn’t tested on animals.

How do you use the dark spot serum?

Topicals recommend applying a thin layer of the serum onto freshly cleansed and dry skin, then following up with your favorite moisturizer. For the best results, gently massage the serum in until your skin has absorbed it. You can use it up to three times a week for optimum results, but you should use sun protection during the day and moisturize well while using this serum.

It’s been so effective in fading dark spots that the brand can barely keep the product in stock. Right now, you can pre-order the dark spot serum so that you're one of the first to receive it when it's back in stock (which will take up to three weeks).

According to reviewers, though, it's worth the wait.

“A formula from the skincare Gods. The absolute best product I've ever tried for fading my hyperpigmentation,” said one reviewer.

Others swear they “can't leave the house without it” it's been such “bliss to use.”

The results are almost immediate, too, with some reviewers noticing a change in their skin in as little as two weeks.

“I have only been using it for two weeks, and I have already seen a noticeable lightening of my old (and new) acne scars,” claimed another reviewer. “It also lightened an area of pigmentation I've had on the bridge of my nose for YEARS.”

Dark spots can be a confidence killer, so rather than hunt for the best foundation to cover them up, consider trying a serum that will fade them away.
