sun damaged face

I used to have lovely freckles. During pregnancies I developed larger dark patches, and now the sun's shining they are very prominent and in my eye make me look quite swarthy. I know I need to use sun block which I have been doing but is there anything proven to help diminish these age/liver spots ?
They even make my eyebrows look undefined as some are on the edge of the brow?
I'm not keen on covering them with make up, thank you

To repair the damage done, I'd recommend indeed labs Peptabright serum (you can get it in Boots). Good for hyperpigmentation and sun spots. Also get yourself a vitamin C serum. Get quite a strong one to repair the damage, like the Hylamide one which is 25%, use that for a few months and then you can drop down to one of a lesser strength.

Boots do a cream called Fade out brightening cream that fades dark areas and age spots. Takes 4 weeks to fade out dark areas of pigmentation (£10) is suitable for face and comes in a day or night cream.

I use factor 50 on my face all year round but as soon as the sun comes out, I get hyperpigmentation around my mouth. Last year, I used Eucerin Even Brighter spot corrector and it worked really well at evening out my skin tone. I'm back on it now and thinking about getting the night cream too although I wonder how it would not lighten my whole face rather than just the dark patches.

Thank you guys. Wow what did the poster recommend who was deleted? I'd love to know! I have bought day and night fade out creams: 3 for 2 in Boots at the mo! The others were a bit out of my price range for now.
I have vit c powder from h&b which I mix into drinks, could this be made into a facial treatment? Would it help?

I'm pretty sure she just recommended sunscreen, so not sure why it was deleted!

You can make your own vitamin C serum cheaply, with (I think) powdered asorbic acid. I have never done it myself, but if you search on here there were a couple of MNetters passing on recipes.

Good luck with the cream.
The deleted message wasn't nasty, I think it was promoting a website or something?

Oh how weird! Thanks re the cream and acid tip 🙂
