Living in LA, I’m outside a lot.  Whether it’s riding my bike at the beach, having lunch with friends, or just walking around town (yeah, I walk in LA) and even just sitting in the car in traffic.  I have my fair share of sun spots.  No matter how much SPF I use, I still have them on my cheeks, around my eyes.  I try everything that will promise to fade them, and make them disappear.
