- At Home
If you spend too much time outdoors, you might not get the sun-kissed glow that celebrities and models sport. Noticeable brown splotches and spots of pigment are caused when your skin produces too much melanin in isolated areas of your face. Sun spots--also known as liver spots or age spots--associated with photoaging can be particularly problematic. You can attempt skin whitening at home, if you choose the right skin-care products and protect discolored skin from the culprit that caused it: the sun.
