What you’re notic­ing: Dark spots, or ar­eas of hy­per­pig­men­ta­tion, are likely to show on the skin, trig­gered by cu­mu­la­tive sun ex­po­sure. And a yel­low­ish cast to the skin may be caused by a process called gly­ca­tion. “Sugar mol­e­cules re­act with the col­la­gen and other pro­teins in your skin cells,” explains Neuser. “That cre­ates a cer­tain yel­low­ing.”

What to look for: Licorice and vi­ta­min C, which work to sup­press ex­cess melanin and stop it from ris­ing to the sur­face. Also look for col­la­gen­boost­ing in­gre­di­ents to ad­dress gly­ca­tion— boost­ing those struc­tural pro­teins in the skin helps stop the dis­coloura­tion. “When you have enough fresh col­la­gen, the sug­ars can be bro­ken down in a nat­u­ral way and taken out of the skin cells,” says Neuser.
