What Causes Dark Spots?

Did You Know?

Melanin gives hair, eyes, and skin their color, and dictates whether areas of your skin may have dark spots, discoloration, or hyperpigmentation. Their appearance may be due to sun damage (sun spots), inflammation (often a result of eczema, psoriasis, or acne), and hormones sometimes seen in pregnant women. Dark spots and hyperpigmentation are common, and potent formulas like Kiehl's Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Corrector and brightening serum are an effective way to treat them.

Did You Know?
“Because increased pigmentation can develop more over time due to increased sun exposure, dark spots and other clarity compromising conditions can begin forming beneath the surface layer of the skin long before becoming visible to the naked eye. One effective way to address these concerns is with products that are active upon application and deliver preventative benefits.”

Kiehl’s Global Consulting Dermatologist, Dr. Meghan O’Brien
