Found! Help for Uneven Skin Tones

Many women struggle with uneven skin tone, but dark skin is particularly prone to hyperpigmentation — a fancier term for darker patches of skin. It's often caused by sun damage, but acne scars can also cause this problem. TeamSugar member valova82 and I have been messaging each other for a while, trying to figure out the best way to help her skin look more even-toned. And late last week, she sent this news, which we wanted to share with you:

I'm using some products by Ambi skincare. Initially, I purchased the Even and Clear moisturizer with SPF 30 ($11.49). I bought it because it slowly fades away dark spots. Bella, this is one of the best investments I've made in a LONG time. I've been using it for about two months and I've noticed a significant difference in the way that my skin looks. So, now I'm using both the moisturizer and the complexion bar soap and it's working miracles!

The only thing better than this ringing endorsement? Ambi is offering free samples, so you can try the goods without spending a dime. Thanks so much to valova82 for sharing her find!

I used the free sample they sent to me a couple of months ago and I loved it so much that I bought the lotion. It's definitely one of the best I've ever used. I don't have sun spots but small acne scars around my chin and have noticed a considerable difference in my chin. Like Kat, I don't have to use concealer before I brush on my foundation! I'd totally recommend this to anyone with acne or dark spots.

I bought Ambi fade cream for oily skin, almost 3 weeks ago. I have dark spots on my cheeks. They kept getting larger and darker as time went by. I am 42 years old. I was in my 30's when I noticed my first spot appearing. It seems to be working. I don't have to use concealer with my foundation anymore. The bottle says it will usually take 90 days, but it's only been a few weeks and I can tell a difference. Will keep you informed as time goes by. I hope within the next few weeks the dark spots will be totally gone!

I've been wanting to try this actually. I don't know why I haven t bought this yet, but I will soon. Especially if this helps your skin tone.

I detected no fragrance - a hint of shimmer, but nothing noticeable.

shakena taylor- I don't think you should have a problem but you should check out Ambi's web page or email them. I use a strong retinol at night and the doctor has told me I am able to using bleaching (hydroquinone) products if needed at the same time which actually may work better together. Different than proactive, but I think you are safe.

I had read before that hydroquinone wasn't that safe for your you know much about it, Bella? I have a lot of sun damage, but I'm wary of trying a product that I don't know too much about...

My mum and I, thanks to our darker skintones, have hyperpigmentation in our skin. Mum has always been a fan of Ambi because it treats her skin well. She didn't like this moisturizer very much - she prefers their cremes, which is better for her dry skin - but I adored it. Very good for those that just need a little fading.

I don't have a problem with dark spots, but my mom does because of sun damage. She used to be one of those people who spent everyday of the summer outside without SPF. I ordered a sample for her. Hopefully it works to lighten her dark patches. Shes always looking for something to help them lighten.

I've used their fade cream to fade dark spots left behind by pimples, and although it took a few months, I do think it helped get rid of them faster than if I would've used nothing.

I've been using their fade cream for a couple months now, and just picked up a bottle of their foaming cleanser. I think it's working, since my darker patches seem to be evening out.

i don't have sun damage but i do have eczema and my dermatologist recommended Jane Iredale cosmetics. It may be worth looking into for anyone with skin issues

I used it for a while and liked it. I didn't get major results though. I started using Tri-Luma last week. I have also had 3 Fraxel Laser treatments. Melasma (dark brown patches) sucks! It's gotten better, but I still have spots. I hide my face from the sun all the times now! SPF everyday, even when I stay indoors! Good luck to eveyone with sun damage or Melasma!
