Dark spots are a big concern for many women. If you have oily, acne-prone skin, you probably have struggled with dark spots, or hyperpigmentation. But oil and acne aren't the only causes of dark spots. "The sun, acne, melasma, prescription medication and hormonal imbalances are all causes of hyperpigmentation," says New York-based dermatologist Ariel Ostad. "These dark spots occur when your skin produces more melanin, which gives our skin its color."

 

Fortunately, dark spots can be easily treated and prevented with THIS holy-grail product...

Clinique's Even Better Clinical Dark Spot Corrector & Optimizer is a good fix for dark spots. The clinical-strength serum works well on all skin types (dry, oily, combination, acne-prone) and reduces the appearance of dark spots in as little as four weeks with 58% visible reduction in dark spots at 12 weeks.

So what's in this serum and how does it help combat hyperpigmentation? Let's start with vitamin C. According to Sumayah Jamal, M.D. of Schweiger Dermatology Group, vitamin C "inhibits enzymatic processes that produce melanin in the skin, as such it can help to reduce dark coloration of the skin.” It also helps support collagen production and healthy skin, giving you a glowing and brighter complexion!

The Even Better Clinical Dark Spot Corrector & Optimizer also includes Gyokuro Extract, a specially harvested Japanese green tea extract. "Green tea contains molecules known as polyphenols, which have been proven to reduce inflammation, promote healing, and fight certain types of bacteria," The Dermatology Review reports. "This makes green tea cream products effective for acne prone skin, because soothing inflammation is one of the important treatment goals for most acne sufferers."

Finally, this Clinique serum includes salicylic acid, which will help zap your dark spots and acne scars. "Salicylic acid can reduce sebum secretion, which is [the] way it can help reduce acne," says Sue Ann Wee, a dermatologist in New York City. "It's also an anti-inflammatory, which can help calm inflamed acne."

 

So there you have it! If you struggle with dark spots, Clinique's Even Better Clinical Dark Spot Corrector & Optimizer is a must-have in your skincare routine.
