What is Skin Brightening?
Ever wondered how skin brightening works? Skin brightening is still a commonly misunderstood term. Is skin really bleached? Is it safe? In this post we try to clarify what skin brightening is, while putting some misconceptions to rest.
The main goal of skin brightening products is restoring vibrancy to the skin and making it look more even and radiant.
Skin brightening is often confused and used interchangeably with skin lightening, but while the main goal of skin lightening is reducing pigmentation, skin brightening aims to increase the overall radiance and glow of the skin.
Why is Skin Brightening important?
Our skin is continuously creating new skin cells to replace older ones, and often, these dead skin cells remain on the skin’s surface and can cause it to appear dull. Skin brightening products remove dull cells from the skin’s surface, thereby revitalizing it and making it look more radiant and “brighter”.
As our skin ages, the skin cells turnover process slows down, and our skin loses its ability to retain water. Brightening creams contain youth-enhancing ingredients to combat skin aging and bring skin’s natural vitality back. There are also many “Natural Skin Care Tips“ that can be followed to achieve a brighter healthy looking skin.
Brightening is achieved with ingredients such as vitamin C, retinol and alpha and beta hydroxy acids. These ingredients help the skin to naturally shed dead skin cells and gradually improve an uneven skin tone, leaving it smoother, more vibrant, and younger-looking.
