Don’t pop pimples. Doing so can lead to additional irritation and leave scarring. Instead use a spot treatment with benzoyl peroxide.
Lighten Up Your Age Spots
Age spots are a dead giveaway that you are getting on in years. Sometimes they appear early in life as a result of too much unprotected time under the sun. Whenever their blessed arrival, like gray hairs, they are unwelcome and deserve to be banished! Expensive treatments are not for everyone, and it’s an expensive and time consuming process to make regular visits to a plastic surgeon’s office. Some age spots can be covered up, but for those you cannot hide the whitening system treatment from Guerlain is a convenient alternative.
The luxury skin care company offers a series of whitening products that lighten the pigmentation around age spots. Creams are designed to penetrate deep underneath the surface and bleach spots from the inside out. As the color fades it becomes easier to camouflage age spots around the face, neck, arms, and legs. Gradual use is recommended to avoid skin rashes and other serious reactions. If you have a history of skin cancer and enjoy tanning beds, consult a dermatologist before using this line.
Guerlain uses whitening pearls to achieve results. Appropriately called P.E.A.R.L. Fusion Whitening Treatment, the complex creams are applied and absorbed like a gel. Once contact is made with the skin, a whitening agent is activated to break down the coloration on age spots. The key ingredient is a whitening power that is concentrated to act as dermatological bleach in the same way that Clorox whitens sheets in the laundry. One must be careful to use the right amount to avoid mishaps. It is highly recommended that users do not use this product line if they plan to be outside in the sun without maximum sun protection.
Prolonged use of Guerlain’s skin whitening system appears to not have any serious consequences. However, if you do not see improvement and significant fading in brown spots, after about two or three months of use it is advised to see a skin specialist. Otherwise, lift out those age spots and restore a youthful appearance!
