As we enter another heatwave here in the UK, some of us are going to experience changes to our skin that we don’t particularly want to see. You may notice some darker spots on your face, aka pigmentation. Thankfully, our friends at Murad have got us covered with their Rapid Dark Spot Correcting Serum.
With patented resorcinol technology, it helps to visibly reduce the intensity of the look of dark spots/hyperpigmentation and uneven skin tone. Hyperpigmentation is caused by everything from the normal ageing process, hormone fluctuation during life changes such as menstruation and pregnancy, sun damage and after you’ve had spots/inflammation of the skin.
The Rapid Dark Spot Correcting Serum can help reduce the look of all of these. It’s suitable for all skin tones and helps to target not only visible dark spots but can also help to prevent the look of the ones yet to surface.
Prevention is key. To help prevent hyper/pigmentation, you must wear SPF every day, without fail.
A good rule of thumb to follow is: if you can read a book without turning a light on, it’s bright enough for you to need SPF (even indoors). Glycolic acid is also helpful for prevention, but it’s key to wear SPF both the morning you apply, or the morning after if you have used it in your evening routine.
Of course, the Murad Rapid Dark Spot Correcting Serum is also fabulous to help prevent hyperpigmentation in the future, too.
I like to use the Rapid Dark Spot Correcting Serum in my morning routine, followed by my moisturiser, and of course SPF.
So, cleanse, add a layer of the Rapid Dark Spot Correcting Serum, moisturise and use SPF – or, if you have an oilier or combination skin, you may want to skip the moisturiser and go straight in with an SPF.*
*If you want to stay in the Murad family, City Skin SPF 50 is great for daily protection and Essential-C Day Moisture Broad Spectrum SPF 30 has added Vitamin C for another antioxidant boost.
