Hydroquinone is one of the most misunderstood ingredients in skincare. This organic compound, found in blueberries, cranberries and other fruits and vegetables, is the only FDA-approved way to lighten skin discolorations.
And while it is available over-the-counter or with a prescription from your doctor, don’t book an appointment with your dermatologist just yet. The 4% by-prescription-only variety can be more irritating than the two percent found in OTC products, without guaranteeing better results. We find that 2% hydroquinone works extremely well when combined with exfoliation and sun protection.

There’s no time like the summertime to get outdoors and enjoy the sun. No matter how hard you try, increased sun exposure June through August is nearly inevitable. Going for a ride in that convertible on that beautiful warm summer day?
What to know? A convertible is just a mobile lounge chair and requires exactly the same amount of sun protection as you would apply before heading out to a pool party. Unlike other recreational sun exposure, it can even be worse because not only do most of us fail to think about applying sunscreen before driving, but the refreshing breeze and roar of the engine can dull your sun alarm so you stay exposed longer than you might normally.
What to do? Go ahead and take it off…go topless! …a ride or two in a convertible this summer won’t leather your skin as long as you apply sunscreen before jumping in. And work the “convertible look” made famous by Audrey Hepburn, complete with a headscarf and sunglasses. Not only will channeling this style icon bring some added fun to your drive, but it will also protect your skin from the sun.
