I admit — I spent too much time in the sun this summer. On the beach, playing tennis, bike riding — who can resist? Because I am fair, I end up with new freckles and sun spots that I lament every September. I immediately amp up my vitamin C, glycolic acid, and hydration to start to fix it.

At night, I use M-61 JetGlow Serum, a powerful dose of glycolic acid and peptides to smooth and firm.

I then follow with La Mer's Lifting and Firming Mask that I leave on all night.

Then, in the morning, I use M-61 Vitablast C — the gallic acid helps brighten the skin and seems to lighten my freckles.

I then top off with Laura Mercier's Radiance Primer for instant glow.

My kids are back to a routine. It's time to get my skin back to one, too!
