Well I am not so sure about the safety of creams that are out in the stores today. I have eczema and I've always struggled with it throughout my life. I've spent hundreds of dollars trying out everything. Since I partnered up with a company that promotes optimal health...I've learned to read labels on everything. All the skin care products I purchased from stores have harsh chemicals and cancer causing agents. I thought I was doing good when really I was causing more harm by absorbing those creams into my skin and system. Fortunately, my company provides not only pharmaceutical grade supplements but also pharmaceutical grade skin care that have no harsh chemicals and only have nourishing vitamins in them such as vitamin E and even grape seed extract and more. Since I started to supplement and use the skin care line...I've seen major improvements in my overall health and skin. I am much more confident and much happier You can check out the products on my website. I guarantee that you will love the skin care line! www.jasminbaguio.usana.com

Have you tried putting sunscreen lotion on those areas of the body that have the brown spots. Sun screen lotion protects the skin from the harsh damages caused by over exposure to the sun. I put sunscreen lotion on my hands, arms and legs. The spots seem to lessen and disappear.
