    Hello I would like to have some advice on how to remove dark spots from my legs? I developed dark spots on my legs as a child, and they have always been referred to as sand sores. I really want so much to find a product that could remove these spots. Can you please advise me on the best product to use to remove these dark spots? Thank ou

      Hi Heidy,

      I am still awaiting a response from Dr. Wu but I wanted to get back to you with some home remedy ideas I have found.
      It is recommended to use butter milk on the dark spots as it contains an ingredient that will (over time) bleach the areas on the skin. You can apply the buttermilk to your legs with a cotton ball and allow it to evaporate.
      I have also read that lemon juice may help as well as it contains the same bleaching ingredient. You can apply to legs in the same fashion.
      There may also be a few options for treatment at your local pharmacy. They should have over the counter creams for removal of dark spots. Look for creams that contain steroids and/or bleach to aid in lightening the spots.
      I would recommend staying out of direct sunlight unless you wear a great SPF on your legs as the spots may darken with extreme sun exposure.
      *I came across a product by Philosophy called Miracle Worker Dark Spot Corrector. This product can be purchased online http://www.philosophy.com/ or at your local Sephora for $62. It promises to brighten skin and improve the appearance of dark spots. I trust Philosophy brand products so you may wish to give it a try.
      Hope this helps!
      And thanks for reading A Beauty Loft 🙂
