Dark spots on skin are an unwelcome intruder, as most women will attest. These brown appearing spots show up typically around the cheeks, arms and hands. Many refer to them as “age spots” but that is not the entire truth. Fortunately, there are many home remedies that you can apply to fade these spots.
What causes dark spots on the skin? Sun exposure is the responsible culprit for most dark spots on the skin. With sun exposure, the skin releases melanin in an effort to protect us from sun damage. Melanin is what gives us that dark or tanned look. Unfortunately the melanin is not always uniform and dark spots result.
Dark spots can also occur due to fluctuations of hormones and is quite common during pregnancy or menopause. Hormone use, acne, aging, liver disease, stress and genetics also play a role in the appearance of dark skin spots. Dark spots on the skin, also called hyper-pigmentation, are a common skin problem especially beginning in middle age. There are a variety of conditions and agents that can cause dark spots to develop.

Stretch marks are visible lines on the skin surface, with an off-color hue. Stretch marks are mainly found in the abdominal wall, but can also occur over the thighs, upper arms, buttocks and breasts. Sometimes stretch marks can cover large areas of the body. While pregnancy is the main cause behind stretch marks, other reasons can be sudden gain or loss in weight, rapid growth, heredity factors, stress and changes in physical conditions.
The skin consists of three main layers: Epidermis (the outer layer), Dermis (the middle layer) and Subcutaneous or Hypodermic (the deepest layer). Stretch marks form in the dermis or middle layer of the skin when the connective tissue is “stretched” beyond the power of its flexibility due to rapid expansion or contraction of the skin.
As skin is stretched, the collagen is weakened and its normal production cycle is interrupted and damaged. This ultimately results in fine scars under the top layer of the skin. Initially the marks look pink or red, but over time a thin, silvery line appears on the skin surface and a stretch mark is born. Stretch marks appear on the skin surface when someone grows quickly, or puts on weight quickly. Stretch marks can make you feel self-conscious and uncomfortable about your appearance. Fortunately, there are several natural ways to reduce the appearance of stretch marks. Moroccan Gold Argan Oil is the product you can use to remove them and your skin looks clean and soft.
Apply Moroccan Gold Argan Oil to the stretch marks and gently massage the affected area in circular motions.
