WHAT IS SKIN BRIGHTENING?
Skin brightening is to increase the radiance or vibrancy of the skin. Brightening products are formulated with key ingredients that will help you to achieve your skin goals. If dullness, hyperpigmentation and dark spots are the current issues you’re looking to target in your skincare routine, here are the key ingredients to consider adding into your routine today:
Pearl Powder is exactly what it sounds like: finely ground pearls! This ingredient is not new to skincare, and was widely known to have been used by Cleopatra as a skin brightening potion in ancient Egypt. Pearl Powder is great for lifting and skin texture improvement, and is also known for reducing skin pigmentation, inhibiting an enzyme (Tyrosinase) that is responsible for melanin production. At least 14 amino acids and 30 trace minerals are present in Pearl Powder such as calcium, iron and magnesium that are needed to achieve a youthful skin.
Glutathione is one of the most powerful antioxidants on the market, it helps to defend skin against visible effects from environmental damage. Glutathione is good for clearing oxidative stress, and consists of 3 amino acids (cysteine, glutamic acid, and glycine) that helps to brighten dull complexion, resulting in a more radiant and even skin tone.

Vitamin C is a popular ingredient in skin brightening, it helps to prevent premature aging of the skin, reduce pigmentation and smooth skin surface to reduce dullness, providing a youthful glow. Vitamin C has a chemical property that impedes melanin production that is beneficial in fading dark spots and hyperpigmentation, leading to a brighter skin appearance. Apart from brightening skin, Vitamin C also protects against skin damage from sun exposure and harmful free radicals. Read more in depth about Vitamin C here.
