Beauty spotlight: Dark spot correctors
Since Clinique launched its Even Better Clinical Dark Spot Corrector last year, other similar products with similar promises are starting to show up.
This interests me because I’m a former sun worshipper, and, yes, my skin is paying for my sins. I didn’t know any better back then. Now I do, and sunscreen is my best friend. I plan to make room on my vanity for a good spot corrector, too, when I find the best one.
Garnier Dark Spot Corrector: It is said to reduce the appearance of dark spots caused by aging, repeated environmental exposure, hormonal fluctuations, and even past acne damage. It is infused with potent Vitamin C to break up dark spots and lift them away. According to the company, skin looks instantly brighter and more evenly toned. Discolorations and spots fade in four weeks; in eight weeks, the size of spots are diminished. I’m tempted to try it, mostly because of the $16.99 price.
Lancome Bright Expert Dark Spot Corrector and Radiance Activator: Enriched with yeast extract, the comapny says the product virtually erases the appearance of dark spots to reveal an evenly radiant complexion. Clinical studies show 78.8 percent of women saw a reduction in the appearance of dark spots after four weeks of use; 82.3 percent of women saw an even toned complexion after four weeks of use. Price: $65 for a 1-ounce tube.
So, if you’ve found a spot corrector that really works, share.
