We don’t know anyone who gets excited to discover a new sun spot on her face. Even less thrilling? All-over hyperpigmentation, which can result in mottled skin. Sun damage is also a main cause of weakened collagen – and the slack, dull skin that comes with it.
We know you know, but do it! No treatment will be eective as long as your skin is exposed. Next, use a product with retinol every night. It will protect existing collagen from breaking downandbuild more of the structural protein, says Dr Gohara. Then add in a serum or a cream with brightening ingredients, like kojic acid, glycyrrhetinic acid or arbutin to fade dark spots.
