How long does it take to fade dark spots? 

Fading dark spots is a long time challenge. It takes months and months of regular use of our Bermuda Oil (which contains Vitamin C), as well as regular exfoliation. The combination of moisturizing with a dark spot treatment and exfoliating will help speed up the process. The exfoliation is often forgotten when trying to treat dark spots, so don't forget! 

Dark spots are far more common than you think. They are often not talked about, which has led to fewer products being available on the market. Additionally, this has led to fewer all natural products being created for this category. 

 What should be avoided when treating dark spots? 

Try to avoid unnatural products, such as steroids, mercury or even bleach in some cases. For best results you'll actually want to avoid the sun and be extra careful with sunscreen. Additionally, you should look for products that contain Vitamin C.
