Zenth wants you to know😊: How to get rid of dark spots?

What are dark spots?

Dark spots, also known as hyperpigmentation, can affect a person's confidence and way of life, which can be a common problem for many. They are patches of skin that appear darker than the surrounding tissue and can appear on the face, hands, shoulders, arms, and other regions of the body. These spots can be difficult to treat, regardless of the cause—sun exposure, hormone changes, or ageing. Even though they are typically not harmful from a medical standpoint, they can have a big impact on someone's quality of life, as mentioned above.

So, how can we get rid of dark spots? Here are some tips for preventing dark spots and maintaining clear, healthy skin through a proactive skincare approach:

1. Gentle Functional Skincare

Gentle skincare is essential for dark spots because harsh products or treatments can aggravate the skin, leading to inflammation and worsening of hyperpigmentation.  Try incorporating targeted skincare featuring powerful lightening ingredients like Vitamin C, alpha arbutin, niacinamide, and mild enzymes into your skincare routine. These potent elements work synergistically to break down and lighten dark spots effectively, revealing a luminous complexion. However, it's crucial to complement this regimen with hydrating skincare, incorporating additional serums like Pore A+ Serum and Triple HA Booster Serum, to prevent dryness. Skin lightening ingredients may accelerate skin renewal, potentially leading to dryness or peeling.

2. Sun Protection

To reduce sun exposure and prevent the formation of new dark spots, wear protective clothes and accessories like hats and sunglasses, seek shade during peak sun hours at 10am to 5pm, and apply broad-spectrum sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher regularly, even in indoors. This is because exposure to ultraviolet (UV) radiation from the sun can darken existing dark spots and contribute to the development of new ones. UV radiation also stimulates melanin production in the skin, leading to hyperpigmentation issues such as dark spots, uneven skin tone and melasma. 

3. Healthy Lifestyle

Understanding the causes behind dark spots, how they affect day-to-day activities, and adopting a healthy lifestyle can help prevent dark spots and keep your skin glowing!  


Nourish your skin with a balanced diet rich in vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. Consider supplements like Vitamin E, Vitamin D, Glutathione and Omega-3 fatty acids to lighten pigmentation. 


Manage stress levels through mindfulness techniques and incorporate adaptogenic herbs like ashwagandha or rhodiola into your routine. Regular exercise promotes circulation and helps flush out toxins, contributing to clearer skin. 


Kick unhealthy habits like smoking and excessive alcohol consumption to improve overall skin health and vitality,  lessen the appearance of dark spots, and prevent early aging.

4. Consistent Laser and Facial Treatment

Following a consistent skincare routine or treatment that includes targeted care for dark spots, such as Pico Snow Laser and Coll Bright from Zenth Pore Specialist is key to preventing pigmentation issues.  The Pico Snow Laser, known for its exceptional efficacy, breaks down melanin ten times faster than normal pico lasers, resulting in visible improvement in pigmentation lightening after each session. This innovative technology targets and breaks down pigmented cells into dust without harming surrounding tissues, making it suitable for all skin types. By incorporating these advanced treatments into your regimen, you can effectively combat pigmentation concerns and maintain a spotless complexion.

Dark spots can negatively affect confidence, skincare habits, and general well-being, all of which can have an impact on day-to-day living. But thanks to advancements like the Pico Snow Laser, people now have access to cutting-edge therapies that can accurately target and remove unsightly spots, giving their skin clarity and confidence again.

If you're struggling with dark spots and seeking a reliable solution, consider consulting with us at Zenth Pore Specialist, a qualified skincare professional, to learn more about how Pico Snow Laser treatment and skin care regime can benefit you.
