Hi there Jose! I see you are from Miami, I actually lived down there back in 2006. I absolutely loved it, and can't wait to come back. Where in Miami are you from? And what brings you to Skin Care Talk?

I'm not from Miami, I moved down here almost a year ago. I'm originally from NYC. I'm here because I have dark marks all over my face and wanna see what I can do about them. How about u??

NYC, nice!!! I'm here at skin care talk so that I can assist people in caring for their skin, I've been a professional skin care therapist (esthetician) for going on 2 years now, and this is what I love!!

Products that may help you included ingredients like kojic acid, which is a natural skin brightening agent that doesn't whiten the skin but stops the developement of the color where it is applied. It will take time and patience to see results though, don't give up
I hope this helps, feel free to ask me anything or share your ideas too.

Jose, I almost forgot to tell you the most important part. You must exfloiate regularly, which will make your skin produce some fresh new skin cell, and you absolutely must use sunscreen to protect your skin!!!! UV exposure will only worsen your dark spots (hyperpigmentation). Especially since you're in Sunny Miami!!!
