How to Avoid Damaging Skin While Brightening
Have you ever wanted to wake up in the morning and look into the mirror to see a brighter and fairer you? Glowing skin can give the appearance that you're "lit from within." Several factors contribute to dull and pigmented skin, such as heat, overexposure to the sun, pollution, poor lifestyle choices, medical condition, or even stress.
The goal of skin brightening is to restore your natural skin glow by removing dead skin cells from the surface. However, skin brightening should not be confused with skin whitening. Skin whitening is usually associated with more aggressive procedures to bleach the skin and achieve a skin tone lighter than what you already have.
- Retinaldehyde: The most potent form of Vitamin A approved without a prescription. ILLUMINATE works up to 11X faster than retinol to brighten skin tone. The closest element to retinoic acid; retinaldehyde, boosts collagen production and increases cell turnover. It also decreases the appearance of fine lines and dark spots (hyperpigmentation). It has shown to even skin tone and provides anti-aging benefits twice as fast as retinol - in about four weeks with nightly use.
- Turmeric (Curcuma Longa Root Extract): A recent study discovered that turmeric can brighten skin within three weeks. Combined with Broad Spectrum CBD oil as the carrier, it also has natural antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties.
- Kojic Acid: This super-ingredient helps brighten your color by preventing the formation of melanin, a pigment that gives sun and age spots their color.
- Vitamin E: Also known as the "workforce Vitamin," Vitamin E assists cellular restoration, strengthens the skin barrier, and promotes healing. It is paired with Vitamin C to create the perfect antioxidant duo.
- Vitamin B3: In the form of niacinamide, it helps seal in your skin's moisture supplemented by the hyaluronic acid while improving the skin's texture and further reducing wrinkles and fine lines appearance.
- Licorice Root: Licorice extract is a natural skin-lightening alternative to chemical hydroquinone.
