Are you worried about ageing? You may not have frown lines or crows feet, but a common reason why people feel they look older is because of uneven skin tone. Now I am not talking about freckles, but bigger and darker blotches on the skin. These dark spots are caused by the suns damage to the skin and specifically the UVA rays that get deep into the skin and cause ageing.
Until recent years one of the only ways to really treat pigmentation was with lasers, which are a good option for some but come with many drawbacks. Lasers are expensive, can cause a lot of down-time and the problem can come back.
Another option is with prescription strength bleaching creams containing steroids but these can be irritant and toxic, and some contain mercury which is illegal. NOT a pretty solution.
These are some of the pigmentation products that ACTUALLY work!
Clinique Even Better Clinical Dark Spot Corrector (£39.50, clinique.co.uk) is an award winning serum that promises “prescription level results.”
Philosophy Miracle Worker Dark Spot Correcting System (£55,philosophyskincare.co.uk) contains the brand’s powerful Dark Spot Corrector
Shiseido Intensive Anti-Spot Serum (currently £64.80) works on the genetic source of dark spots and targets areas with laser precision. Having developed their first brightening product in 1971 this super skincare brand always trouble-shoots and succeeds.
