Q: What's your favorite and most effective face cream to help even skin tone and fade brown spots?
A: True story: I'm particularly diligent about sunscreenas in I'll make people wait to go to the beach until I have applied SPF 30+ all over and waited the requisite 30 minutes to fully absorb the blockers. Of course, sometimes people who will remain unnamed rush you out the door, and you end up missing a spot and are left with a bright red trapezoidal burn that then fades to a brownish color over time. In lieu of spending hundreds of dollars on laser treatmentswhich help reverse the appearance of sun damagetry applying the antioxidant-, anti-inflammatory-packed Clinique Even Better Skin Tone Corrector, $39.50. It took about two tubes of the serum and twice-a-day use, but it worked so well that now I use it all over my face, under my sunscreen, naturally. My skin is 10 times bettereven, glowing, and healthy looking.
