So you took full advantage of summer – and you’ve got the skin to prove it. That bronzed glow is gorgeous for sure, but the sunspots that seem to follow are never as dazzling. Our moms warned up, but did we listen? Of course not. Every year it’s the same story. We have a little too much fun in the sun and end up burned and spotted. We’ve all been there, even the girl who wears a hat, stays under the beach umbrella and liberally lathers on SPF 50 before taking a 5 minute dip in the water. Coming in all shapes, sizes and colors, sunspots haunt all of us.
But before you start to panic, allow me to introduce you to the best au natural products that banish sunspots for good. These babies reverse the signs of UV damage with cutting-edge technology and powerful vitamins, minerals and botanicals that effectively brighten and lighten dull skin. Pop them on as recommended – on a clean face after your toner and before your moisturizer. You’ll be back to gloating about your tanned, smooth, sunspot-free skin in no time.
