The Fix: "Although there are over-the-counter products that can be used, the most effective are prescription agents," Waldorf says. "I prescribe topical retinoids and hydroquinone," she adds.
If heading to your derm for a prescription isn't an option, try these beauty elixirs to fade age spots and freckles: Kate Somerville Mega C Dual Radiance Serum, $90, which contains skin brightening ingredients like vitamin C.
