One of the most frustrating skin conditions to deal with is discoloration. Skin discoloration can be caused by a number of factors, and although there are many products that claim to work, it’s really trial and error. That’s why I was so happy to see SkinCeuticals new Discoloration Defense.

I always have at least one SkinCeuticals product in my skincare regimen. It’s a line that I trust to give me results. News of a new brightening treatment was exciting, because even though I wear sunscreen, it seems like I’m always fighting dark spots/sun damage.

The Discoloration Defense formula is a synergistic blend of Tranexamic Acid, Niacinamide, Kojic Acid and Sulfonic Acid; it targets difficult to treat forms of discoloration from various causes, brightens and adds clarity to skin. The clinicals are impressive: reduction in the appearance of stubborn brown patches by 60%, post-acne marks by 81%, and a 59% improvement in overall skin tone.

I’ve been using Discoloration Defense twice daily for approximately the past 8 weeks and have seen a noticeable improvement in my own sun spots. The areas I’m treating are still there, but they’re lighter and less noticable. A medium coverage foundation covers the discoloration up without any additional concealer. Although this corrective serum has acids in it, I haven’t experienced any burning or irritation. When using this treatment in the morning, it’s important to follow Discoloration Defense with a sunscreen.

You can find SkinCeuticals Discoloration Defense at, as well as in select dermatologist offices nationwide. Have you ever dealt with this skin issue?
