Whatever the hell they're called, I'm getting them and NOT happy. I'm talking about big dark freckles, patches of freckles and the lovely hitler-style moustache dark patch.
Apart from inventing a time machine to go back and THROTTLE my younger, sunbathing self, anyone have any ideas? I've been looking at various creams and saw one called Meladerm which seems to have good reviews. Is it all snake oil? anyone tried something that worked?

Well, first get your gp to diagnose you, chloasma is different to sun spots.

Ask them if retin a cream would work, you do have to wear a good sunscreen every day but you're doing that anyway to prevent more damage presumably.

I buy retin a off amazon and it's getting rid of my age spots, I had 4 under my right eye. I've got 2 now. I've been wearing sunblock every day for 14 years so I dread to think what I'd look like if I hadn't.
