Not only did I use a SPF 50 daily the week I spent under the sizzling Miami sun, I was never without my hat and stayed under an umbrella until at least 3pm daily. Despite my (extreme) efforts, I still came home with what seems to be new sunspots and freckles on my face!
I was always told that pigmentation on Asian skin may be heat-activated, even without actual sun exposure. Guess it’s really true! I need to try the new Sisley-Paris Phyto-Blanc Intensive Lightening serum, ASAP. With a prolonged release of Vitamin C, it guarantees to reduce the intensity of brown spots, prevent new ones from forming, and genuinely lighten the skin to its “natural radiance” after four weeks of application (and for the hefty price, I have a feeling it should work). Which is about as long as I need – I’m heading back to Asia this summer and last thing I need is my Chinese aunts harping on my freckles and giving me lectures on staying out of the sun. At Bergdorf Goodman for $345 (for 10 oz.).
