Question
Hi! I'm looking for recommendations for products to deal with hyper-pigmentation caused by sunspots. I already use retinol and vitamin C in my skincare routine but haven't seen much of a difference...any other ideas or should I just be patient?

    Vitamin C, niacinamide, AHA, sunscreen! Incorporate all four diligently and over time, you will see your freckles fade and a more even skin tone. (I'm speaking from experience as someone who also had this concern and did this!)

    This is golden. You prob want to make sure to use Niacinamide + AHA!

    Niacinamide for sure. Also make sure you incorporate chemical exfoliation (AHA) so you can encourage skin turnover. None of this will make a difference though unless you use sunscreen.. so get on it if you aren't already!

    Are you using sunscreen consistently?

    Yes, I am! But maybe I need to switch to a stronger sunscreen, because the one I'm currently using still creates freckles for my skin. :(

    Vitamin C should make a difference if you use it consistently over time. Niacinamide is great for hyper-pigmentation as are chemical exfoliants. If you don't incorporate an acid already, I'd do so. The products that Kelsie recommended below are great! Personally I love this face cream which has helped get clearer skin for my skin that's spent too much time in the sun.

    The ordinary’s Niacinamide and their Glycolic solution has helped me out a lot! Their Lactic Acid 10% is pretty good too.

    ^I second that! The Ordinary’s Niacinamide 10% helped my tone looks a lot better

    Thank you! I don't use a face oil but maybe I'll look into incorporating one.
