    • Sun damage is a huge problem that most people aren’t aware of.  When brown spots appear on the skin’s surface, it’s often just the tip of the iceberg.  Treating sun damage requires a full face regimen, not just spot treating.  The appropriate approach is to exfoliate, lighten and brighten, and then protect.  Dr. Katie Rodan says, “The real secret to long-term management of hyperpigmentation is strict, year-round use of sunscreens and, as needed, hydroquinone therapy to lighten the abnormal pigment.”

      In addition to hydroquinone, you should look for skin brighteners such as arbutin, vitamin C, kojic acid, licorice extract, mulberry, aha’s, retinol and melaslow.  I have finally found great product that has treated my sun damage, and my photos have never looked better.  Light reflects beautifully off your face when there are no brown spots beneath the surface.  This restores radiance and a beautiful glow!  Even my driver’s license photo looks great!

    • Arbonne has a new product line “Revelage” that breaks the pigment apart that creates sun spots.  I use the daytime moisturizer with spf 30 and the night serum.  I can hardly see my 2 sun spots anymore (one is the size of a dime).  The products don’t bleach the pigments, but actually get rid of them.  If anyone is interested in learning more about it, send me a message.  (oh, and the serum smells yummy...  and is the consistency of lotion).  ~Sherry

    • I can’t believe we are already switching seasons.  Where does the time go?  Exfoliating is so important year round but as fall rolls in it’s a great way to help the reparative process.
      I also really love pure argan oil.  It really makes your skin glow!
