Brown spots

I have no idea why this year they've appeared. I had read somewhere they are sign of poor digestion. Oh well, no comments on that, because I don't know how to fix this issue: constipation, bloating, etc. Anyway, what would be the best way to get rid of them? I have super sensitive skin. Would chemical peel be one to consider? I've read somewhere it's effective.
Let me know if you've tried or read something about best possible solutions! Thanks!

Hello, I'm sorry you are having trouble with this. If you are having constipation you can do relaxation techniques including biofeedback. A low carb high fat diet helped for me. There are other detoxification options, such as drinking clay, sauna & exercise (sweating), and drinking distilled water. A chemical peel will increase your skin sensitivity, making it more likely to burn and freckle. Best wishes.

Brown spots on the face are probably sun spots. Wear a SPF (zinc is a physical SPF) every day - even winter/cloudy days. Apply every 2 hours if outside all day at the park etc.

Lactic acid over 5% can fade sun damage. 5% is very light - so it will take a series to really fade things.

If you use an OTC skin lightener/brightener with Bearberry, licorice root or mulberry you need to use it every single day for 3+ months to see improvement.

Hi! I suggest you to have a proper and balance diet to avoid skin problems. You will need to do some workouts and you will also need to hydrate your body every day by drinking plenty of water. Drinking of water everyday can help you to boost your metabolism. Green tea can also help you to have a good digestion.
