Sum­mer may feel like a dis­tant mem­ory, but skin dam­age from all those pa­tio dates hasn’t been for­got­ten. “Light re­flect­ing off skin is what makes peo­ple look younger,” says Dr. Ju­lia Car­roll of Com­pass Der­ma­tol­ogy in Toronto, who ex­plains that wrin­kles and pig­men­ta­tion hin­der light’s abil­ity to bounce off your face. Now is the sea­son to re­pair. Derm treat­ments such as peels and laser­ing re­quire that you limit sun ex­po­sure to avoid pig­ment change—easy to do when it’s dark by 5 p.m. Look for bright­en­ing prod­ucts with ko­jic acid, vi­ta­min C, gly­colic acid or Retin-A.
