“EltaMD UV Restore Borad-Spectrum SPF 40 ($37) is multifaceted in that it protects our patients’ skin both indoors and outdoors by providing broad-spectrum UVA, UVB, HEV, IR and pollution protection. It was also specifically developed for individuals who want brighter, healthier skin and to improve discoloration or sunspots. Its lightweight and hydrating coverage not only protects the skin, but it also gives a beautiful glow that helps to even out and brighten the complexion.
I also like NOON Aesthetics Double White, which was developed as an intensive at-home treatment product for skin lightening and brightening, as well as an alternative to hydroquinone. It is ideal for individuals who want to repair any abnormal discolorations in their skin, such as hyperpigmentation from over-exposure to UV radiation, hormonally-induced pigment from melasma or post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation that can occur after breakout activity. It’s dual pump container features a mega stable 11 percent vitamin C on one side and 20 percent azelaic acid with 5 percent alpha arbutin on the other side, which makes this an incredibly effective and comprehensive blend of free radical protection and cellular repair. This one is a gem!”
