For quite some time now, I’ve been bothered by the fact that I have “freckles” on my face. Except that I don’t think they’re freckles, really, because aren’t those usually found in Caucasians? I should stop being in denial here. They’re age spots! 😥
Well it turns out that recent studies have shown that above wrinkles and loss of firmness, discoloration is the #1 perceivable sign of aging amongst women. Most even skin tone received significantly higher ratings for attractiveness and health, and were judged to be younger in age.
So what causes this hyper-pigmentation? It can be caused by many factors, but the most common is damage caused from UV exposure becoming worse with age. The sun is our #1 enemy when it comes to aging, but we can’t hide from it forever, so if we can’t avoid it completely, then we need to find other ways to counter its effects.
That’s where Palmer’s White & Even Dark Spot Corrector comes into the picture.
Now Palmer’s is a brand I trust, after having tried their miraculous skin therapy oil and falling in love with it. So when I got a chance to try another one of their products, I was excited to get onboard.
The first thing I noticed when I finally got my hands on a bottle of Palmer’s White and Even Dark Spot Corrector was its pump dispenser, which I appreciated for making it very easy to dispense the product in just the right amount.
The next thing I noticed was its wonderful fragrance. It smells a bit floral with a hint of cocoa butter, which is Palmer’s signature ingredient. So good! The cream feels light and easily absorbed by the skin, and it is non-greasy.
Palmer’s White and Even Dark Spot Corrector has unique skin tone correcting formulations. It is formulated with an advanced blend of potent yet gentle ingredients that reduce hyper-pigmentation, and has no parabens, phthalates, sulphates, harsh dyes, synthetics dyes and fragrances.
Palmer’s White and Even Dark Spot Corrector has these ingredients:
When used daily, the advanced blend of ingredients in Palmer’s Eventone products, works in two ways:
(1) Lightens surface skin cells producing more uniform skin tone within 3-5 days
(2) Acts on the deeper skin layers to inhibit over-production of melanin. Even skin tone develops as skin cells rise to the surface. 4-6 weeks, depending on age, health, and exposure to sun.
So what has it done for me? I haven’t noticed anything miraculous, to be honest, but to be fair, I have been using it for just a few days. Here is my skin in all its #nofilter glory. It’s evened out a bit and looks rosy. And even though the product is just supposed to just focus on lightening your skin, it moisturizes it as well. Must be the cocoa butter effect.
My dark spots seem to have lightened a bit, too. I hope they fade away completely with continued use! #fingerscrossed
