When acne resolves, sometimes the skin stains, which is causing too much pigment to be released. That’s a common issue where a skin brightener may help. In addition, skin brighteners help target age spots and brown spots, which are caused by the sun’s ultraviolet rays.”
A skin brightener is also often prescribed to treat melasma (where the normal skin is darkened and the disorder is distressing to the patient), they’ve also been used historically in countries such as Japan, China, India and throughout the continent of Africa for individuals who simply desire a brighter complexion.
There are many good ingredients that work effectively with skin brighteners. Vitamin C is a natural antioxidant that is known to reduce melanin formation and give a radiant effect to the skin. Vitamin B3, also known as niacinamide and liquorice extract has anti-inflammatory properties. Glycolic acid (a form of an alpha hydroxy acid) is a good exfoliant and a natural skin brightening agent. Plus lactic acid for people with sensitive skin.
