Have you ever looked in the mirror and noticed dark spots on your cheeks, arms, hands and other parts of your body? What is more surprising is you do not know how those spots got there in the first place. The problem is that you are just naïve to the whole explanation of why people start getting dark spots on their skin.
Many believe that the lighter one’s skin, the better he or she looks. That may be the reason why people spend a whopping 13 billion U.S. dollars each year on things like glutathione whitening, skin bleaching products and many other things to lighten skin color. And that’s in Asia Pacific Division alone.
Dark spots are quite common especially for those people who are constantly spending time out in the sunlight. Although sunlight exposure is one of the general causes of dark spots, there are also other reasons why some people may also get these spots.
Mirror, mirror on the wall, who’s the fairest of them all? Throughout time and across many cultures, a whiter facial complexion has been equated with beauty. In various countries, studies show that men prefer women with lighter skin.
