Summertime is always an uplifting, exciting time of year but it can come with a common problem: damaged skin and sunspots. Sunspots can often make an unwelcome appearance after excessive sun exposure or after forgetting to reapply sunscreen one too many times, particularly if you have fragile or delicate, pale skin. Today, we're going to discuss how to eliminate sunspots at the source while also protecting your skin to prevent their return. We'll recommend all of the products within our Agent range that you can include in your "Sunspot SOS" kit, so that the only thing you have to worry about this summer is whether you packed your new holi (sun) alongside these best-selling products.
Lactic acid is the ultimate skin renewal boost and it’s one of our favorite ingredients for tackling hyperpigmentation and age spots. Often mistaken as a harsh acid, it's actually much gentler than glycolic or salicylic acid. It helps to resurface the skin (face, neck and decolletage too) to promote cell turnover, revealing a brighter and more even complexion that is less prone to sun spots.
By promoting faster cell turnover, lactic acid stimulates the shedding of old skin cells and encourages the growth of new, fresh cells. This not only brightens your complexion but also leads to smoother and softer skin. Incorporating lactic acid-based products into your skincare routine, such as our acid (wash) lactic acid skin brightening cleanser, holi (bright) resurfacing glass face mask, and holi (wash) ageless resurfacing body cleanser, can help diminish the appearance of sunspots and achieve a more even skin tone. Don't forget to extend the application to your décolletage as well, as this area is often exposed to the sun and prone to sunspots (remember to always apply SPF here too!).
We call vitamin C the radiance reviver. To combat sunspots effectively, you have to get to know about the power of vitamin C. It is an antioxidant superhero that inhibits melanin production, the process responsible for sunspot development. At Agent Nateur, we have a unique and innovative dry powder vitamin C product that stands out from others on the market. It’s our holi (c) and is specifically formulated to maintain its potency and effectiveness without oxidizing. Unlike traditional serums and creams, our dry powder formula remains stable, ensuring that you receive the full benefits of vitamin C without any degradation. To incorporate holi (c) into your skincare routine, we recommend blending a pea-sized amount with our holi (water). This combination not only enhances the texture of acne-prone skin but also restores firmness and reveals a youthful radiance. It's important to note that using too much product can lead to a tight sensation, so adjust the proportions accordingly.
Our lineup of other vitamin C-infused products includes acid (wash), holi (wash), holi (creme), holi (lift), holi (bright), holi (c), holi (water), and holi (oil). These carefully formulated products will enhance texture, firmness, and radiance while fading hyperpigmentation.
Pitaya, Rosehip and Aloe
On your sunspot-fighting journey, this trio is going to be helpful too. Aloe is a big one. After a hot day in the sun we are obsessed with a holi (bright) overnight mask where the cool, calm aloe can really get to work in an ‘aloe soak’. Aloe also plays a crucial role in fading sunspots and dark areas too. A natural compound called aloesin found in aloe inhibits melanin production (if it’s the first time that you’ve heard of aloesin, you’ll be forgiven), making it effective in treating hyperpigmentation. Look no further than our holi (bright) resurfacing glass face mask for intense hydration, calming properties, and resurfacing effects.
Pitaya, also known as dragon fruit, boasts anthocyanin and vitamin C. It offers protection against UV radiation and reduces hyperpigmentation. Experience the benefits of pitaya in holi (water), holi (glow) ageless eye and lip serum (you gotta protect your lips from the sun too!), and our holi (cleanse) cleansing face makeup remover.
Finally, rosehip oil - a nourishing elixir packed with essential fatty acids and antioxidants. It’s a must-have for combating pigmentation and achieving a radiant complexion.
Coming soon! holi (sun)
When it comes to sunspots, prevention is arguably most important. Protecting your skin from sun damage is crucial to avoid the formation of sunspots before they then become an issue that you have to deal with. For me, SPF 50 is critical here. The research confirms this time and time again and that’s why I am so excited to now be able to encourage you to apply our new agent sunscreen: holi (sun).
Unique formulation: These dewy, tinted, new SPF 50 skin drops are formulated with the ingredients you would find in your skincare, with the added protection of 12% non-nano zinc oxide that helps to protect against harmful UV rays and sun damage. This two-in-one sun protection product delivers a lightweight, nourishing, and natural finish, with easily-blendable, glowy and glossy coverage that corrects imperfections and builds a daily, radiant glow. It also delivers 98% of UVA and UVB radiation protection. But maybe one of its best features is that it leaves no white or gray shadow on your face, neck or decolletage - it’s easy to apply, spread and absorb.
Even more benefits: In addition to its protective SPF 50 power, holi (sun) is free from parabens, silicones, alcohol, and fragrance too. Backed by clinical trials and active ingredients, this product is designed to nurture firm and supple skin, and clinical studies show that the formulation boosts antioxidant activity within the skin by an astonishing 200%.
It also contains bioactive complexes that hydrate the skin and stimulate collagen and fibronectin synthesis, effectively helping to slow down the aging process. The high content of vitamin C and vitamin E in holi (sun) helps strengthen the skin's barrier function, while boosting optimal hydration and a radiant, luminous appearance. So you know this product is going to deliver hydrating, anti-aging, and anti-inflammatory properties for your sunkissed skin, all while protecting it from the heat of the day.
Choose your shade: For holi (sun) we have created four exquisite shade options for you: ivory, almond, honey, and espresso. Ivory is suitable for very light to light skin complexions, almond is ideal for light to medium skin complexions, honey is designed for medium to deep tan skin complexions, and espresso is tailored for deep to very deep skin complexions. As well as being non-toxic for your face, this product is also marine- and reef-friendly too, so if you enter the water wearing it, you aren’t harming anyone or anything else around you.
At Agent, we want you to be as excited about buying your skincare as you are about booking that plane ticket and we don’t want the worry of sun spots to ruin the beautiful benefits of stepping out into the sun. Protection and nourishment are the perfect way to keep sunspots a distant memory of the summers BEFORE you understood the importance of protecting your skin. And for those that are already present? It’s the perfect excuse to treat yourself to some new Agent products for your summer suitcase. What are you waiting for?
