A Hands-Down Delightful Lightening Cream

When treating hyperpigmentation on your face, it's easy to forget about an area that's just as exposed to spot-instigating sunshine: your hands. Freckles can be cute on a nose, but on hands, they're a glaring giveaway of premature aging.

Luckily, mani-pedi prodigy Barielle just introduced Advanced Formula Porcelain Skin Brightening Cream, a gentle formula that addresses discoloration and uneven tone. Hydroquinone substitute kojic acid is a reliable lightening agent, especially when surrounded by a blend of exfoliating alpha-hydroxy acids, as is the case here.

The twice-daily cream is also especially nourishing, thanks to vitamin E and enriched oils from sunflower, jojoba and wheat germ; so your hands stay soft and smooth as dark spots are diminished. Your face may even get jealous!
