Derma E has a wonderful skin brightening Vitamin C Skincare Collection, and it features many of my favorite products from this wonderful cruelty-free brand. If you have discoloration from sun damage these products will help to fade the hyperpigmentation caused by the over-exposure that may have occurred during the warm months of summer. Here are a few of my favorite products from this collection:
