clear skin
Whatever your age and whatever your skin type, dark spots make skin look significantly older.

Women often begin to notice the unsightly marks appearing on sun-exposed areas such as the face, chest, arms and hands during their late thirties.

And in most cases the pigmentation becomes darker over the years.

The trick in dealing with dark spots is to target them with a blend of skin-boosting ingredients that brighten skin and switch off melatonin-producing cells responsible for pigmentation patches.

There are plenty of beauty wonder products on the market, designed specifically with age spots in mind.

Here are some to try:
