New Skin Damage Eraser By Clinique Evens Out All Skin Tones

Skin damage. We all seem to have some form of it....Dark spots. Uneven skin tone. Better known as hyperpigmentation.
And according to the experts at the Clinique company, hyperpigmentation is a global concern:

....."one of the fastest-growing skincare concerns: hyperpigmentation, which affects millions of people around the globe…and is considered to be one of the newest and most significant signs of premature ageing.”

Senior Vice President Basic Science Research Estée Lauder Companies Dr Daniel Yarosh
talks about the causes of hyperpigmentation:
“It is caused by an excess of melanin, the pigment in the skin that’s responsible for colour,” he noted. “Exposure to sunlight, pollution, the response to inflammation such as acne, or simple age – an individual’s genes – can all contribute to the development of dark spots and uneven skin tone. It affects people of all ethnicities and all age groups.”

For years, the best and seemingly only way to get rid of hyperpigmentation, has been through a prescription of 4% hydroquinone. Some people have been afraid of using the prescription for extended periods of time, in fear of developing cancer. But now Clinique has developed an alternative: Clinique Even Better Clinical Dark Spot Corrector ($49.50).

Does it really work? Clinique says it does work, and just as good as hydroquinone, and without the irritation, redness, or dryness that can result in using the prescription treatment. In fact, you can expect to see a verified 53% improvement in skin tone. For all ethnicities: See results starting in as little as 4 weeks. At 12 weeks, see a visible reduction in dark spots, age spots, and traces of acne past.

"This is not only a breakthrough for Clinique, it’s a breakthrough for the industry," says Vice President Clinique Product Development Worldwide Debbie D’Aquino.
You can find Clinique's new Even Better Clinical Dark Spot Corrector at Clinique counters, of course, as well as fine beauty and dept. stores like Sephora.
