How to Remove Dark Spots on Face After a Summer Spent in the Sun

Summer isn’t complete without spending time at the beach or poolside with something fruity and blended! But, chances are you didn’t spend enough time reapplying SPF or laying under your umbrella. And, those dark spots on your face haven’t faded as quickly as your tan has! Incorporate some Asian beauty products into your recovery routine to brighten up dry, uneven summer skin.

Restore balance to your face.

Dry and flaky. Burnt and spotty. The aftermath of too much sun during the summer. Restore your skin’s natural balance and help improve tone and texture by adding an essence into your skin care regimen. Essences are one of Asia’s best kept beauty secrets, and they are just starting to emerge in Western skin care routines. Simply splash on an essence after you’ve cleansed and toned your skin to hydrate and replenish your face with vitamins and amino acids. The SK-II Facial Treatment Essence is a beauty editor favorite for flawless skin! This pure and lightweight “miracle water” helps skin feel plump, smooth and hydrated, helping to correct summer’s worst side effects.

Treat your specific concern.

Serums are lightweight moisturizers that are formulated to treat unique skin concerns. So, if you want to treat the uneven skin tone that often develops from too much time in the sun, look for a skin brightening serum that works as a dark spot corrector, such as SK-II GenOptics Spot Essence Serum. This light, silky serum is quickly absorbed by skin, targeting dullness and discoloration from UV exposure and leaving your face brighter and fresher. It can even help with dark circles under eyes!

Pamper your skin.

To top off any repairing routine, it’s important to drench your skin in moisture. A quick way to hydrate is to apply a sheet mask and let it work its magic on your face. The SK-II Brightening Source Derm Revival Mask is a skin brightening mask that is packed with hydration and radiance! Simply place the mask over the face and let it soak in for 10 to 15 minutes. Wipe off or massage any extra liquid into skin. Skin will look visibly brightened, moisturized and refined, while the appearance of age spots and imperfections is reduced.

Remember to apply (and reapply) sunscreen the next time you plan on basking in the sun and lounging outside. And then, stay on top of your skin care routine year-round to help reduce the appearance of spots!
