Skin discoloration can add years to your visage, even if you have smooth, lineless skin courtesy of at-home skincare and professional intervention such as BOTOX and fillers. With summer in full swing, extra sun exposure can make dark spots worse, despite your most diligent sun protection efforts.
If summer has you seeing spots in the form of freckles, lentigines, melasma or other dark patches, fret not because there are a variety of ways to brighten your overall complexion both at home and in the doctor’s office. Over-the-counter and non-prescription dark spot brighteners may include kojic acid, glycolic acid, retinol, licorice extract, vitamin C, arbutin, mulberry, soy and polyphenols.
SKINCEUTICALS Phloretin CF – One of the hottest cosmeceuticals is this SkinCeuticals newcomer that contains Phloretin with antioxidants Vitamin C and Ferulic Acid to target skin damage where it lives, protect against free radicals and correct existing damage by stimulating cell turnover. It definitely make a difference in my skin and sun damage. Apply during the day to ward off UV rays, and at night time. I also use the Skinceuticals Z-COTE Sunscreen SPF45 over it for double protection. Hopefully this will help save me money for future laser treatments.
FINAL VERDICT – GGI (GOTTA GET IT) – I definitely like this serum even better than the other Skinceuticals C serums. If you shop around online you can get a discount.
