The Equinol Dark Spot Concentrate (priced at $39.50) is a gentle formula (containing ingredients like bark, grapefruit, and rice bran extracts) that can be used safely in combination with other skincare products.
The product – containing SR12 Complex, Vitamin C and glucosamine – claims to diminish spots due to sun exposure, even out an irregular skin tone and prevent new discolorations from forming.
Okay, I was skeptical when I first tried this product and frankly did not expect it to work. But, I faithfully applied it morning and night (under both my day/night moisturizers, etc.) to a certain dark patch that came from my heedless sun worshipping years ago. I was pleasantly surprised to see that it worked!
The patch is not entirely gone, but it has definitely lightened in the eight or nine weeks I have been using the product. I plan to keep using it and expect that in the coming weeks, the dark patch will fade even more. I can not say, however, if it prevents further damage. It does not contain any sunscreen and now that I am older and wiser, I am obsessive about sunscreen; I apply sunscreen to my face even when it is overcast or pouring rain. But finding a product to correct my youthful follies is a real plus; call me a believer!
