summer beauty: defy sun-damaged skin

the summer season is just around the corner, beauties! along with longer, brighter days also comes what we all dread ~ sun damage! so if you're looking forward to getting out and soaking up the sun, it's that much more important to make sure that you're taking care of your skin before you do any unintended harm...

i'm sure you're well aware that the more time you spend in the sun the more likely you're going to end up with damage; and this won't always show up right away {not everyone burns, after all}, but when it does, it reveals itself in the form of uneven skin tone, spots, hyperpigmentation and unwanted blemishes. thankfully, there are fabulous products to repair the damage, bring back the radiance and give skin a more even tone. here are some suggestions that can be a great help...

MD Complete Dark Spot Remover ~ {pictured, at top} this beauty serum is formulated to help fade unwanted dark spots, freckles and sun damage; evens and brightens overall skin tone giving skin a more youthful and healthy-looking complexion. mdcompleteskincare.com

Exuviance OptiLight Tone Corrector ~ a potent targeted skin tone corrector that aids in diminishing the look of dark spots; active ingredients include botanicals to treat and prevent uneven tone. NeoGlucosamine® gently exfoliates to break up pigment clusters, while retinol and vitamin C help reduce the intensity of existing spots. exuviance.com

Lumixyl Brightening System ~  this revolutionary multi-faceted approach promises to effectively treat hyperpigmentation without irritation or other side effects associated with prescription hydroquinone or retinoids; the 8 week program includes the Active-Prep Cleanser, Topical Brightening Creme, GlycoPeel 20 Rapid Exfoliating Lotion, and MoistureLock Sunscreen spf 30, which work synergistically to target existing melasma and to prevent its recurrence. lovelyskin.com

elure Advanced Brightening Lotion ~ uses mushroom-derived Melanozyme™ which is touted to safely and effectively brighten, soften, and retexturize skin. Melanozyme™ breaks down existing discoloration, without the irritation and side effects of harsh prescription drugs, working to dissolve existing pigment in as little as 4 weeks. elureskin.com

remember, while these are more than likely to give you what you're looking for, prevention is most important, so wear sunscreen daily!

Great picks for sun protection. They all have great ingredients. I like how complete the Lumixyl Brightening System is!
The mushroom element in Elure is intriguing... have you tried it? Is it effective?
