About Face: Ole Henriksen Glow20H Dark Spot Toner

To quote Shakespeare’s Macbeth: “Out damned spot, out!”

Feels applicable when it comes to age spots, doesn’t it? So what exactly are they? They’re flat, gray, brown or black spots that are typically bigger than a freckle and show up on your body parts, like your face, that have the most exposure to the sun. For many, these spots frequent the forehead which tends to get the most impact from the sun’s UVA/UVB rays, even if you’ve layered on the sunscreen as it’s super easy to sweat off. And if you can see yours every time you look in the mirror, then it’s time to call in the big guns a.k.a: a facial toner. And no, any old one won’t do.

You need: Ole HenriksenDark Spot Toner.

The skincare hero contains a high concentration of glycolic and lactic acids otherwise known as AHAs and witch hazel water, which all work together to deeply exfoliate your skin eliminating dead skin cells and stimulating cellular growth to reduce the look of dark spots. Oh yeah, and your fine lines and wrinkles. That part’s the bonus.

The intense formulation helps to smooth your skin’s texture as it’s exfoliating it, so naturally this minimizes the appearance of pesky 11s and crow’s feet. And even though it’s doing all of this good work, the toner is simultaneously safe enough to use every day even on the most sensitive skin, thanks to it’s infusion of calming and soothing sandalwood, chamomile and licorice extracts. All you have to do is wash your face, pat it dry and then, using a cotton pad or a dry corner of your wash cloth swipe the toner all over your face. Layer on your night cream and go to bed. Let us know if, after seven days use you’re quoting Shakespeare in your sleep.

Ole Henriksen Dark Spot Toner from $34, available at Sephora stores.
