Colin Solves Your Problems 10: Dark Marks/Sunspots

Hello Colin, do you have any advice on whats best to use for a sun/dark spot I have on my face ? Thanks Helen


Hi Helen,

Oh dear that is a tough one. You probably already know to avoid exposing it to bright sunlight as far as you can. There is a combination of a couple of vitamins, C and B3, that has a mild effect on these kinds of spots if used for a long time. Products containing them have them listed as niacinamide and magnesium ascorbyl phosphate on the ingredient list. To be honest the effect isn’t huge and is very unlikely to do anything other than fade them a bit.

In theory lemon juice should work, and you see it advised in magazines and on the internet sometimes. I haven’t got any experience to say how well it works in reality.

All the best
