Ways to minimize the appearance of skin discoloration and scarsWhile some skin conditions are curable, others put up a bit more of a fight. However, there are ways to successfully treat even the most stubborn imperfections.

Whether you skinned your knee as a child or had to undergo surgery, scars can make you feel self-conscious when baring your skin. Apply a product like Dermatix Ultra Advanced Scar Treatment to newer marks, but remember to wait until the wound has completely healed.

Those with older scars have options as well. Instead of covering up with stockings and shawls, however, Allure.com suggests using a highly pigmented oil-free concealer to hide the mark. Dermablend Quick-Fix Concealer SPF 30 is a full-coverage formula that’s perfect for covering localized skin flaws.

Skin mottled by dark patches and broken blood vessels may also benefit from cosmetics, such as Dermablend Cover Creme SPF 30 (New Formula), which is designed to cover inconsistencies and create a more even-looking skin tone.

Specialized creams may also be beneficial. According to the website, products with hydroquinone can help to fade dark spots. However, the ingredient can make skin more sensitive to the sun, so those who use a hydroquinone-laden product should apply it at night and lather on sunscreen during the day.ADNFCR-3538-ID-19928657-ADNFCR
