Goodbye, summer, hello, vitamin C products! Hopefully, you’ve been slathering on that SPF, but if you’ve missed a spot or two, we gathered up some skin-brightening products to reverse that sun damage. While freckles are cute, other pesky hyperpigmentation problems aren’t as welcome. This is especially true if you have one or two spots spontaneously show up on prominent areas of your face, like a blemish at the end of the nose. Yes, I have one of those.
Many of these picks are jam-packed with antioxidants and other ingredients to double up on the glow. Use them all through fall and winter to prep your skin for next year’s summer vacations. And keep packing on the SPF! Just because you might not be out in the sun as often doesn’t mean you’re out of the woods on the damaging effects.

BIOSSANCE SQUALANE + VITAMIN C ROSE OIL
