As summer comes to an end, we’re turning our attention to the possible damage the sun may have caused to our delicate complexions. Many lazy summer days have been spent lying out on the beach, and after missing the sunscreen once or twice, we have some new sun spots to show. Sun spots are hyper-pigmentation of the skin caused by UV sun damage that triggers excess melanin to be produced. Thankfully, there is a fix — consistent use of targeted serums can bring skin back to its pre-summer condition. The serums we love target both visibly damaged areas, and the damage that has yet to show its “spots.”
Look for serums with Vitamin C, as it is a very effective way to lighten and brighten the complexion to ward off premature aging and repair sun damage. This miracle vitamin is also responsible for boosting collagen (to reduce and repair fine lines and texture), fighting free radicals (like UVA and UVB rays) and overall brightening. Consistency is key with any skin routine, especially if you want to see noticeable results. Get that bright, glowing and spot free skin back with our effective serum picks!
