“After using MAC's Blacktrack liner for 2 weeks now, I learned that its colour is not as strong and pigmented as I expected, but is buildable to create a darker line.

Anytime you have a spot, or any other skin problem, the best way not to aggravate it is to not pick at it. It may seem hard to do because the only thing you want is for it to disappear, but trust us, they might multiply or even darken more when constantly touched and picked! And you don't want that!

Stay out of the Sun

Another way for dark spots to stop darkening is for you to stay away from the Sun because its harsh rays can actually lead to more skin pigmentation. But if you can’t do that, at least layer on some good SPF all over your face to protect it! And wear sunglasses or hats too for extra prevention!


Use a dark spot corrector



Now there’s only so much you can do for your dark spots, so you’re going to need some extra help! A dark spot correcting serum such as the CLINIQUE Even Better Clinical Dark Spot Corrector & Optimizer will help visibly lighten dark spots, soothe irritations that cause them, and help skin against future darkening! This refreshingly lightweight serum can be applied generously all over the face and neck to maximise and evenly distribute the serum and reveal a more luminous complexion!

And in addition, start eating more fruits and vegetables filled with anti-oxidants to help banish any toxins in your body that contribute to dark spots and other skin problems!
