How To Use: Once or twice daily, apply 3-5 drops of this serum to a dry face and other areas of discoloration, or as directed by a physician. In the morning, apply Discoloration Defense after an antioxidant serum and before sunscreen. For optimal results, limit sun exposure while using this product. Do not use on irritated or broken skin.

3% Tranexamic Acid: This synthetically-derived ingredient minimizes the reoccurrence of skin discoloration and stubborn brown patches with continued use.
1% Kojic Acid: Naturally produced by certain fungi, kojic acid helps improve skin brightness.
5% Niacinamide: Also known as vitamin B3, this water-soluble vitamin is found naturally in yeast, meat, fish, milk, eggs, green vegetables, beans, and cereal grains. It has been shown to help reduce the appearance of skin discoloration.
5% HEPES: This synthetically-derived acid activates natural enzymes in skin to help break the bonds that bind dead skin cells to the surface for even exfoliation.
