Brighten up

As you round age 35, the pigment cells in your skin produce melanin unevenly, leaving your complexion a little…spotty. Adding a brightening serum or lotion to your skin-care routine will help even and smooth skin, says Jeannette Graf, MD, a dermatologist in Great Neck, New York: "Products that contain natural extracts like soy, vitamin C, arbutin, and licorice root help reduce excess pigment for an all-over fresher appearance."

Unlike lightening serums, which often have potent bleaching ingredients such as hydroquinone, brighteners are much milder and can safely be used all over the face, Dr. Graf explains.
