I went on a cruise last year and afterwards I discovered that, whether it was on the cruise or while tanning before leaving, I had developed hyperpigmentation on my face. If you look at my photo you'll see that I'm a Scot with a very fair complexion, so even though I'd hit the tanning bed before crusing I still had fair skin and dark spots on my face were seriously unacceptable. So I did my research and discovered some tricks for getting rid of them (One trick is to put your cleanser on dry skin instead of damp; somehow that makes it help remove the pigment..or so the article said.) and one of the products that seemed most highly recommended was **Dr. Patricia Wexler's skin brightening daily moisturizer**. I already had a good moisturizer (one of her's actually), but wanted those ugly spots GONE, so I invested in a small container of this moisturizer and before the container was even emptied the spots had vanished. Now that's what we like to see!
