Oh, the sun -- feels so good, but capable of so much damage! But don't despair -- go and buy some new hats and sunscreen, and take along this advice from dermatologist Dr. Victoria Taraska of First Glance Aesthetic Clinic
"There are a number of products that can fade brown spots. Any products that contain glycolic acid or alpha hydroxy acid, hydroquinone, vitamin C, kojic acid, kinectin and/or topical retinoids can help lighten brown spots. Neostrata HQ, Reversa bleaching cream, Ultraquin and glyquin are available without a prescription.
"Your doctor can also prescribe solage, tazorac, vitamin A acid or Stieva A or compound a special bleaching cream for your skin. Don’t forget to wear your sunscreen or the spots will return and take a longer time to lighten."
