Fact: constant exposure to harmful UV rays from the sun causes an increase in the production of melanin, which leads to dark spots and hyperpigmentation. Moreover, spending hours under direct sunlight can also cause sunburns. While using a sunblock is essential, applying a brightening serum after a long day out is also important to ensure your skin stays fair. Here, the ones you need to get now.
