The Serum That’s Fading My Hyperpigmentation Before Summer

Let’s Just Get to the Point:
Murad Rapid Age Spot Correcting Serum ($75) is a skin-clearing product that erases dark spots, age spots and hyperpigmentation without using hydroquinone.

If You Want to Know More:
As a rather fair child, I had always found my freckles cute during my teenage years. They’d pop up during the summer months and completely fade away during the winter. However, as an adult, my freckles have morphed into everlasting, splotches of hyperpigmentation—no longer looking like a sprinkle of dots across my cheeks I had formally found so endearing. In order to lessen the appearance of my once-adorable freckles, I turned to various skin-brightening products that ultimately didn't offer much help—until recently. 

Luckily, I eventually came across Murad's Rapid Age Spot Correcting Serum and my pesky spots finally started to fade. This clinically proven serum uses a proprietary NHP-3 technology—the brand claims is supported by more than 10 years of research—as an alternative to hydroquinone to even out the skin tone and reduce dark spots. Vitamin C, oligopeptides and subtle light-reflecting pearls also work to give the skin an overall brightened appearance for a more youthful complexion over time.

With results happening in as little as one week (it took me about two weeks to see a difference in my skin!), this serum has officially become a staple in my routine. In fact, a clinical study performed by the brand found that after six weeks of continuous use, the visibility of dark spots on participants was significantly reduced. Check out the proof below:

In terms of use, it’s recommended to apply the serum after cleansing, both morning and night. However, the serum’s powerful ingredients may make the skin slightly more sensitive to the sun immediately after use, so be sure to follow it up with a moisturizer and sunscreen when applying it in the earlier hours of the day.

    I'd bet the first comparison is photoshop, considering in the second comparison, nothing changed--not even an eyelash out of place. Not impressed.
