So, ask yourself. What's worse than getting a zit? The damn brown spot you have for months afterwards. If it would last a couple of weeks, fine, but these spots go on for months. So, I did a little research and looks like Vitamin C does a dandy job of getting rid of them. I tried Paula's Choice RESIST Vitamin C spot Treatment and I have to say I was seriously impressed. Day 1 darkness was lightened by half. Day 2 half of that. Day 3 almost gone. Give it a try.
