When shopping for dark spot correcting treatments, which can include serums, moisturizers, and exfoliators like peels, our experts suggest look for terms directly addressing dark spots or "brightening" and “skin tone-evening" on the packaging. Vitamin C, an antioxidant that brightens skin. Niacinamide (a.k.a. vitamin B3), slows pigment production. Hydroquinone, which inhibits an enzyme that produces melanin. Retinol and alpha or beta hydroxy acids (like glycolic and salicylic acids), which increase skin cell turnover to get rid of hyperpigmented cells. Tranexamic acid, kojic acid, alpha-arbutin, cysteamine, azelaic acid, resorcinol, soy, and licorice root extract can also lessen hyperpigmentation, Dr. Turegano says. What is the best way to use a dark spot corrector? When applying a dark spot corrector, generally, "if it's a serum or liquid form, it should be the first product that touches...
Sunscreen isn't just for beach or pool days. Dermatologists recommend wearing sunscreen every day, year-round to protect your skin from sun damage. It's arguably the most important part of any skincare routine, and one that most men skip. Not only does wearing SPF decrease your risk of developing skin cancer, but it also also helps prevent premature skin aging, helping you look younger for longer. "Wearing a good broad spectrum sunscreen with UVA and UVB protection is critical is protecting your skin against free radical damage caused by sun exposure, which can lead to skin cancers and worsened aging of the skin (wrinkles, increased laxity or sagginess and uneven discoloration)," says Dr. Morgana Colombo, MD, board certified dermatologist, and co-founder of Skintap....
With all sunscreen, it's important to go with a formula that has a high enough SPF, because that SPF 15 you've been slapping on isn't going to cut it. "We typically recommend using SPF 30 at a minimum for regular daily use," says board-certified dermatologist Mamina Turegano, MD. "If you're going to spend more time outdoors, I recommend using at least SPF 50." But if your skin tends to be on the oily side, then there are other things you'll wanna keep in mind besides SPF: Go oil-free Sounds like a no-brainer, but you'd be surprised by how many sunscreens for oily skin are actually filled with pore-clogging oils. "I would avoid comedogenic ingredients, such as isopropyl myristate, isopropyl palmitate, soybean oil, and coconut...
Under-eye concerns can be a total nuisance, especially under-eye bags. Not only are they unavoidably visible to everyone and anyone (they are sitting right in the middle of your face, after all), but most of the time their appearance is completely out of your control. What are dark circles? Dark circles and puffiness can often be caused by lifestyle habits such as lack of sleep or poor diet. They can also be handled pretty easily thanks to makeup and even a shock of ice. When it comes to under-eye bags, there's not a whole lot you can do to avoid them, as they are primarily caused by genetics and aging (and may be worsened with some life style choices). "Some families have...
