Glowy face tip 1: Practice safe sun
The 60s — sometimes earlier — is the decade that hyperpigmentation (sunspots) comes through, says Dr. Frauke Neuser, principal scientist with Olay Skin Care. Decades of exposure to UV rays and free radicals can damage melanin cells especially on the face, hands and décolletage. “The cells go into overdrive and continue to produce melanin, which then gets transported to the surface of the skin, and you see that as age or dark spots.” says Dr. Neuser, who recommends Olay Luminous Miracle Boost Concentrate to treat hyperpigmentation.
A consistent effort is also part of the solution, to both eliminate current spots and prevent future ones. “What’s really important is that you use SPF.”
