reverseRegimen for Brown Spots,Dullness and Sun Damage
It’s not what you see,it’s what you don’t see. Eighty percent of your skin’s aged appearance is caused by the sun, not the passage of time. The damage caused by UV exposure is not only visible on your face, but lurks under the skin’s surface, making your complexion appear dull, sallow, uneven, and aged. Much of this evidence of environmental aging is both preventable and reversible. We created the Rodan + Fields® REVERSE Regimen as a simple, full-face solution that tackles both the damage below the surface and the visible pigmentation that is the result of years of incidental sun exposure. The REVERSE Regimen exfoliates dulling dead skin cells, lightens unwanted pigmentation, evens skin tone, brightens the overall complexion, and protects against further UV damage, visibly improving the appearance of environmentally aged skin.

B rightens dull skin, improves tone and texture, and boosts skin’s radiance. Exfoliates skin to remove complexion-dulling dead skin cells.
