“What’s that on your face?,” asked a friend recently. I won’t name names but a concerned friend was pointing out a sun spot that I have on the side of my forehead. In fact, I’ve had them for years but she has never noticed because I normally have them covered up and this friend happened to be seeing me makeup less just a few days after I turned 40.
I have 3 age spots that I’ve had since my 20s really, and despite being pretty diligent with the sunscreen, time hasn’t helped them fade. ’Cuz we all know that ain’t happening as I get older. I was just kind of psyched she hadn’t noticed them before to be honest.
There are two products I use that I think help my dark spots and help with wrinkles. The first is new for me; I’ve been using Neutrogena’s Triple Age Repair Moisturizer which helps to moisturize, smooth out wrinkles and provides me with SPF 25 when I wear it. It’s $18.99 at Neutrogena.com or you can find it at your local drug store.
The second is Maybelline’s Instant Age Rewind Eraser for Dark Spots ($8.99 on Ulta.com) and I found out about this one from my aunt. This one isn’t going to cause any miracles to your face but is basically a concealer but it works really well. The top of it has a blotter so it literally just dabs onto your problem area and covers what you want covered. I use it every morning on my age spots after I put Neutrogena’s Triple Age Repair on. I consider this one a pretty awesome product considering that my friend didn’t even know I had these dark spots until she saw me without the makeup on.
