Q: What is the best way to avoid dark spots?

Dr. Raissa: Contrary to popular belief, there are a lot of ways to avoid dark spots. Just follow these easy to do skin care tips to avoid, or fix this common beauty problem.

1. Use a broad-spectrum sunscreen (both UVA and UVB) protection on your face, neck, and other exposed areas daily. Be sure to use an SPF of at least 30.

2. Always remember that the sunscreen in your powder, foundation, or any makeup is not enough. Use a sunscreen first, then apply makeup on top of it.

3. When applying sunscreen, keep in mind that you need a teaspoon of sunscreen to adequately protect your face. 

4. Avoid going out into the sun between 10 AM to 4 PM because this is when the sun's rays are strongest. If you have to go out during this time, walk in the shade, or use an umbrella.

5. If you are swimming in the pool or beach, reapply sunscreen every 2 hours.

6. Do not use tanning beds as these emit large doses of harmful UV radiation.

7. Use sunglasses, hats. and sun-protective clothing especially if you play outdoor sports.

8. Apply a serum, or cream containing Vitamin C because this helps prevent dark spots, and lighten existing hyperpigmentation.

The Rebecca Bloomwood of Manila. I spend half of my time obsessing about the latest fashion craze, and the other half overthinking and over-analyzing just about anything under the sun. When I’m not busy as a bee playing with fifty shades of pink lippies, you can probably catch me swiping my plastic for yet another pair of shiny, pointed gold flats.
