Regardless of your skin type or color, the most important step to prevent age and sun spots is to wear “Broad-spectrum protection”. This specific protection in SPF products means that it will protect your skin against both UVA and UVB rays. Sun spots are preventable, so seek shade as much as you can and do not over-expose your skin to the sun during which the sun’s harmful UV radiation are stronger: between 10 AM and 4PM. Have a look at Murad’s SPF products and find the one that best fits your skin concerns.
Protection is step 1, now let’s look at fading age and sun spots.
The first step to fading age spots is, of course, to actually fade the pigmented areas of the age spots. Murad Advanced Active Radiance Serum uses Resilient-C Complex™ that maximizes collagen production and skin brightening while providing all-day free radical protection. The product is formulated using Alpha Hydroxy Acids to exfoliate both surface skin and dead skin cells beneath the skin’s surface within follicles. Its Myrtle Extract also encourages new cell growth and help boost cell vitality. That means that the Vitamin C in Murad’s active radiance serum can penetrate deeper and work more effectively to lighten hyper-pigmented areas. The Alpha Hydroxy Acids also encourage the movement of the pigmented cells to the skin’s surface where they are more easily and rapidly treated.
Murad Advanced Active Radiance Serum can be used in both your morning and evening skin care regimen. Your Advanced Active Radiance Serum helps to restore tone and smooth texture and is clinically proven to improve skin firmness by up to 64% in just 15 minutes. To fade your age spots and sun spots, apply Murad Advanced Active Radiance Serum after you cleanse your skin and then follow up with a skin or face moisturizer. In addition to fading sun spots and age spots, this serum also improves skin’s overall tone by lifting away other darkened or dull areas of skin discoloration for an overall even skin tone. Its faster-acting formula with double the brighteners boosts radiance and reverses visible signs of environmental damage. It will preserve clarity and defend against future damage for lasting youthful radiance. Try our Environmental Shield line with an affordable starter kit to see if these products are a match.
Although daily SPF moisturizers and serum just like our Advanced Active Radiance Serum are essential, it is helpful to double up on your sun protection through healthy food. In fact consuming more food which contains Polyphenols, Carotenoids, and Vitamin C such as vegetables and fruits, will help your skin keep its natural glow and avoid inflammation.
