SkinCeuticals Discoloration Defense Fights Dark Spots, Post-Acne Marks & Sun Damage by Belinda Lichty Clarke
Got spots? Discoloration Defense, from the UV experts at SkinCeuticals, will help diminish age spots, sun damage and acne discoloration. Formulated with 3 percent tranexamic acid, 1 percent kojic acid, 5 percent niacinamide and 5 percent HEPES (a synthetically-derived acid that helps break the bonds that bind dead skin cells to aid exfoliation), this latest-generation formula improves the appearance of skin discoloration and brightens and evens skin tone in less than a month. Results from a 12-week clinical study showed:
- 60 percent average improvement in the appearance of brown patches
- 59 percent average improvement in the appearance of skin discoloration
- 81 percent average improvement in the appearance of post-acne marks
- 59 percent average improvement in the appearance of even skin tone
Use five drops, twice daily, and follow with sunscreen (important), as this product increases sun sensitivity.
