Let Nature Get Even With Your Skin

We're firm believers in the power of lasers that undo discoloration, but we also understand that not everyone feels ready for this kind of resurfacing and its oft-uncomfortable recovery. So if your complexion is looking less even than it once did, you'll be relieved to learn that Origins could help keep you from making that medispa appointment.

Their new Brighter By Nature Skin Tone Correcting Serum is an ambitious blend of botanicals that helps prevent and correct hyperpigmentation in six significant steps. To intercept environmental stress, rosemary offers antioxidant defense; skin's overall barrier is strengthened with sunflower, cucumber and barley; because even low levels of irritation can prompt melanin production, a combination of burnet, chamomile, peony root, Japanese basil and caffeine keep it under control; any stress that breaks through and gets melanin going is battled by apple and skullcap; meanwhile, a unique yeast-powered fermentation technique breaks apart preexisting spots so they're less apparent; and salicylic acid gently resurfaces.

There's quite a bit of comfort in knowing that as the duller, darker areas of your complexion are ameliorated, you can look forward to fewer flaws and brighter days.
