So I have always said that maybe - one day - my freckles and dark spots will connect and I will look tan.... I know - not likely. But I struggle to make sure that the only leopard spots people see are on my dress - not my face! In the summer months when I spend more time in the sun, I notice that my freckles and dark spots become a lot more prominent. I try to keep them at bay with SPF and brightening products to minimize or cover these dark spots so I can get a more even looking complexion. So here is my routine and hopefully some of these will help you keep your spot at bay this summer.
NIGHT TIME ROUTINE
I always try to use a product that will help minimize my dark spots in my night time routine. I like this serum to even my skin tone and I typically use it once to twice a day. My go to mask has to be the most fun mask in the world. It is a hydrating and brightening mask that foams up on your face when you put it on and then as your skin soaks up the great ingredient the foam gradually goes away. I love how lightweight this mask is - especially in the hot summer months. See my pic below in this mask.
DAY TIME ROUTINE
I always make sure I have on SPF - all the time. This SPF is my go to and dermatologist recommended to keep me from breakouts. I put this spf on under my foundations/powders. I have used it for years and really notice a difference. It is long lasting and does not sweat off easily during your outdoor, summer sweat sessions.
For my makeup I do everything I can to cover up spots (and of course acne). For full face coverage in one step, I use this CC cream which has an additional SPF and helps with color correcting. This concealer I have in every bag and drawer. It covers FULLY a multitude of problems including dark spots and acne. I finish my makeup with this SPF powder when I need one more layer of coverage or for a more matte look to my makeup.
For on the go touch ups I use this mineral based powder with SPF 30 or SPF 50. It easily fits in anything and has color coverage and additional sun protection in those long days outdoors.
