Sun spots, moles, and other imperfections can make your skin look less than perfect. Dark age spots can appear on your skin when you're just 20 years old, and the sun is known for leaving a lasting impression with a mark or two. Luckily, there are plenty of creams and lotions out there that will work to take your skin back to perfection. Here are our Top 3 picks.
The combination of antioxidants accelerates cell turnover (so your skin heals itself faster) and stimulates collagen. These ingredients ensure that your skin is continually renewing itself, which helps improve its texture and reduces the appearance of dark spots. The gel form is perfect to use under sunscreen to help boost its skin shielding protection.
Vitamin C and Pycnogenol (a powerful anti-inflammatory skin healer that's sourced from pine trees in the South of France) work together to brighten skin. If you're prone to getting dark scars (maybe after an acne breakout?) and other post-inflammatory hyper-pigmentation, this formula will help prevent these new spots from arising and is lightweight enough to use under sunscreen during the day.
This prescription strength serum contains a combination of hydroquinone-free skin lighteners. It breaks up clusters of existing pigmentation, and then exfoliates the skin so that any remaining dark spots will eventually disappear altogether.
