The goal is always even skin tone, right? You never want to have to pile on a whole makeup bag’s worth of color-correcting products just to get a clean, even slate for the rest of your makeup. You want to feel like you can elect to wear foundation or concealer as it pleases you. Foundation should be used to give you an even more flawless finish than you already have, not to cover those pesky dark patches so commonly caused by hormonal changes, sun exposure, genetics, or all of the above. Even skin tone is empowering.
Luckily, there are products on the market today that combat discoloration and can help you glow in your own natural, makeup-free skin.
We spoke to dermatologist Dr. Sarah Sawyer to find out what the latest innovations in discoloration products are.
The answer is SkinCeuticals Discoloration Defense, which just launched.
"This is a fantastic product that brightens the entire face, giving the skin a beautiful glow," Dr. Sawyer tells us. "It is also very well-tolerated, which makes it great for patients who have sensitive skin and are unable to use RetinA or hydroquinone. My favorite part about this product is that it dries quickly with a clean finish for morning use under makeup.”
The product retails for $98 and so far has 0 reviews online (it's literally *brand* new).
