MY THREE SKINCARE PICKS THAT CAN HELP TO FADE AGEING SUN SPOTS, UNEVEN SKIN TONE & PIGMENTATION


Are you looking for a skincare fix to help curb sun spots, uneven skin tone and pigmentation? 

One particular brand which has recently caught my eye has to be, 'The Ordinary' skincare range which features scientific inspired products and 'Clinical formulations with integrity'. Their simplistic, clean and straight to the point packaging is essentially what interested me to give them a go, as well as reading various reviews online. 

With further research into how to tackle sun spots, uneven skin tone and pigmentation spots, there are numerous brands and products that's suited for everyone out there. So far I've tried out a few products from The Ordinary (which are serum based products) and I can definitely see a greater difference to my skin's complexion. After using these products I would highly stress for you to use a high SPF sunscreen protection. Some of them contain effective and potent acids which can lead to your skin becoming very sensitive over time. 

Here are some picks for you to consider from The Ordinary skincare range: 




This is essentially a brightening serum containing Vitamin C where it does NOT alcohol, oil, silicone, nut and gluten. Plus it's cruelty-free and vegan. This serum is best used for where you have uneven skin tone, dullness and are showing signs of ageing. Simply use about 1-2 drops and massage this onto your skin in the AM and PM. This serum is water based so it's super lightweight and absorbs easily onto the skin. 

Overall since using this serum it has greatly transformed my skin as it looks more glowing, plump and healthier looking now. If your skin is looking a dull, then simply pop on this serum to observe the skin transformation effects.



This is a very lightweight solution where it looks to smooth out any textured skin or dryness, ideal for winter or the cooler season. As this product does contain retinoid, it can make your skin more sensitive to UV exposure so it's essential to use a high SPF sun protection on a daily basis. As it does contain a potent level of retinoid, I do prefer to use this product at night just before I sleep. A few drops does go a long way so there's no need to use so much of this product within your beauty skincare regime. 



If you want to achieve a superficial dermal peeling that's more gentle than other stronger acids, then the Mandelic Acid may be ideal for you. It's perfect for those looking to target uneven skin tone, textured skin as well as skin ageing. As it contains mandelic acid (10%), this allows the product to absorb the skin more slowly and in a gentle way.  I love the fact that it looks to exfoliate any dead skin cells which essentially helps you to achieve a brighter and smoother skin complexion. I found this formula to be very gentle on my skin and I didn't experience any redness or irritations which is ideal. 

Once again always ensure to use a high SPF sun protection when going outdoors to protect your skin from the UV rays.
