Want to remove brown spots on your face? Dark spots or “sun spots” on your face can seem like they appeared out of thin air. Although brown spots can be caused by a few different conditions, they are usually the result of melasma – a common skin condition that is brought on by long exposure to the sun.

These brown spots are harmless but can cause aesthetic discomfort for some people. Here are a few tips on how to eliminate dark brown sun spots on your face.

Things You'll Need

Exfoliate your face on a daily basis. Exfoliating scrubs contain microbeads which help to remove layers of dead skin and eventually diminish brown spots. When purchasing an exfoliating cream, choose one with the largest micro bead scrubbers for the fastest results.

To speed things up, try using a facial skin bleach. Bleaching creams are safe to use and can be purchased over the counter at your local pharmacy or grocery store. However, be careful not to over use these products as the moderate concentrations of bleaching chemicals will severely dry out your skin. Always use as directed by the manufacturer.

Rub Aloe Vera gel into the dark spots on your face while in the shower. The heat will help open your pores and introduce the Aloe Vera deep into the sun spots. Aloe Vera contains a chemical that will lighten your sun spots over time.
