Glycolic acid is here to help. As spring is approaching and summer vacations around the corner let’s take a moment to pause for our skin. Sun spots or “Age spots” are caused by over exposure to the sun which cause a darkening of melanin or the pigment in our skin. We can help fight that by limiting our exposure to the sun and at the very least keeping up with reapplying our sunscreens. When using Glycolic acids our skin can become sensitive to the sun and can burn a bit easier so make sure to use a sunscreen of at least 30 and reapply as directed.
I use this over night treatment from Mario Badescu not for sun spots but for pigmented acne scars. This gel is to be worn over night by it self and washed off in the morning. For me, I approach skin a little differently than most. I find this treatment effective by using it no more than 3 to 4 times a week.
