3 Natural Ingredients for Dark Spots

As the warmer months are approaching we understand that the skin goes through seasonal changes. The sun loves melanated skin, the more your under its rays the darker your complexion, including dark spots and discoloration on the skin. Treating acne and hyperpigmentation is our specialty and with the natural products our genius Founder, Formulator, and CEO Kimberly-Chloe Wilson invented, we here at The Butter Bar Skincare have just the trick!

Natural products are more beneficial to the skin due to us being natural beings. As technology and medicine evolves over the years, natural ingredients are still essential to be, look, and feel your best. A lot of over the counter skin care products carry a number of harsh chemicals such as aluminum, parabens, and pegs, etc just to name a few. As a result, consistently using products that involve harsh ingredients can do more harm than good to the skin. 

Here are a few natural ingredients that are great for those who suffer from breakouts, acne scars, and discoloration. In the black community, hyperpigmentation is one of the number one skincare concerns and ingredients like Coconut Water, Cucumber, and Turmeric are the perfect to reduce that. 

Coconut Water

Coconut water contains a lot of vitamins and minerals like vitamin B2, vitamin B3, and vitamin C! Also, Coconut Water adds intense hydration when applied to the skin. It's great for those with dry skin and increases elasticity in the skin keeping your face nice and firm. This natural ingredient reduces wrinkles and fine lines leaving your skin youthful. With consistent use coconut water can increase collagen production and leave the skin glowing.

The Butter Bar carries a few products with coconut water, such as our Yucca, Sugar & Hibiscus Hydrating Facial Mist, Pink Grapefruit and Coconut Water Bundle, and Rose and Coconut Water Youthful Glow Bundle Set. 

The Yucca, Sugar & Hibiscus Hydrating Facial Mist is a perfect on the go facial mist. It's a quick hydrating pick-me-up, that's lightweight and fresh smelling.

Cucumber is an essential natural ingredient to apply to the skin. Cucumber is universal and can reduce swelling and puffiness. Studies have shown that cucumbers have the ability to reduce swelling, aids acne-prone skin, soothes irritation. Cucumber is also good for hydrating the skin and repairing damaged skin.

We also carry a night time mask that is great for hydrating the skin! The Cucumber Melon Overnight Hydrating Gellie Mask smells so fresh and melony. This smooth gel mask has Vitamin A & C and must be kept refrigerated to prevent early expiration and the best application.

Turmeric is great for those with hyperpigmentation and discoloration. Its best used for acne because of its antiseptic and antibacterial properties. This natural herb fights pimples and breakouts. It also removes redness or scarring, reduces inflammation, and evens out skin discoloration on the skin. Some people would say it's best to drink the spice as a tea to help prevent acne outbreaks. Our Turmeric & Honey Glow Enhancing Mask is our Founder, Kimberly-Chloe's little secret to acne-free, glowing skin and removing dark spots! Just use this mask at least once a week and see how well your skin tone evens out and glows.
