Exfoliation deeply cleanses the skin and minimises breakouts, but did you know that it also aids in removing pigmentation? An exfoliator containing glycolic or lactic acid sloughs off the outer layer of skin cells, including the darker skin cells (pigmentation) to reveal fresh new skin underneath.
2. EVEN OUT
We reach for vitamin C when hit by a cold, but this juicy vitamin is also essential for fighting skin pigmentation. It helps even out your skin tone by inhibiting melanin production and aiding regeneration which over time reduces pigmentation.
A brightening cream that contains substances which prevent melanin from forming will give you the bright, ‘glowy’ complexion you’re missing, and make dark spots less visible over time. Remember to always use a good SPF in combination with your brightening product, if not in the product already, since it can make your skin sensitive to sun exposure.
