Hi, I'm Kelli. I'm an aesthetician and makeup artist at Ulta Salon and Cosmetics, and I'm going to tell you, in my opinion, what I feel which fade creams really work. The first one, it's not necessarily a fade cream, per se, but the Kinerase brand has really good products that really help to reduce the appearance of discolorations and sun damage and help to brighten the overall complexion, and that's because of a main ingredient they have in their products called kinetin. Kinetin is a natural occurring botanical. It's what's actually found in plants that keeps plants from whithering. But for the skin, it actually helps to plump. It helps to hydrate. It helps the fine lines and wrinkles, and it also can help to reduce the appearance of sun damage up to 56 percent when used consistently for about six to eight weeks. So that's one that I feel that really works well on sun damage. Another one is the Murad brand. They have a couple different ones. This particular one is for acne -- acne spots and acne scarring -- and this can really help to lighten up any discolorations caused from acne scarring, and they also have an age spot lightening gel as well that works really well. These are a two-percent hydroquinone based product. Hydroquinone is a pigment inhibitor and a skin lightener. So those actually help to basically stop pigment from forming within the cell so your sun damage or your acne scarring or anything like that won't get any worse and it'll help to lighten them up as well. So those are a couple creams, in my opinion, that I feel work really well for fading discolorations.
