To be extra cautious, it’s generally a good idea to avoid sun exposure from 10 in the morning to 4 in the evening since UV rays are at their highest. 

2. DIY face masks 

You can easily whip up DIY face masks at home to improve skin clarity and brightness. If you’re looking for creative, healthy, and affordable ways to give your skin the TLC it deserves, it’s sometimes as easy as opening your pantry. Natural ingredients such as coconut oil, lemon juice, and DIY sugar exfoliants are excellent for boosting skin’s appearance.

3. Vitamin C serums 

If you have your head in the skincare game, you’re familiar with vitamin C serums. Experiencing dark spots and dry patches? No worries! Adding a vitamin C rich formula to your skincare routine will reduce pigmentation and dullness and give your skin a healthy glow. 

4. Saffron oil 

Saffron is nothing short of magic. Adding a pinch of saffron to your skincare routine can go a long way in treating dark spots and hyperpigmentation. DermaNiche's Hyperpigmentation Package includes the best products to help you prevent and get rid of dark spots. The saffron facial beauty oil contains natural plant extracts that leave the skin looking younger and blemish-free.
