What can I use to naturally combat age spots or brown spots on skin?

“Fading dark spots requires a few different ingredients used in tandem. And once you have a plan, prevention and protection is critical. Otherwise, the spots will take longer to treat. Diligent sun protection is key.

Choose a cleanser with an enzyme to dissolve and slough off dead skin like Julisis Silver Wash or Tata Harper Regenerating Cleanser.

For daytime, add a protective antioxidant serum like C+E Ferulic, Elaa Sunshine Dew, In Fiore Soleil Fleur or Kypris Antioxidant Dew.

An oil is optional, but if you choose to use one, it should be brightening like Mun Aknari Brightening Youth Serum or Uma Ultimate Brightening Face Oil.

A zinc based sunblock is essential, I recommend Julisis Sun Emulsion or Kypris Pot of Shade.

Overnight use products that renew and increase cell turnover. In Fiore Nourrit Face Oil, Kypris Moonlight Catalyst and the powerhouse Retinol found in Marie Veronique Gentle Retinol Serum are great for that.

Using effective and consistent home care and getting regular nourishing, skin brightening facials will eventually lighten dark spots. It is one of the trickiest conditions to improve so remember to be patient.” – Cara Peloso, CAP Esthetician.
