Skin Brightening

Clear, radiant skin is an essential sign of good health. However, when exposed to excess sunlight or stress, skin can lose its even texture, becoming blotchy and discolored.

What Causes Uneven Skin Tone

Your skin protects you from the sun using Melanin, a compound naturally produced by the skin to block UV Radiation. Melanin is an essential component of your skin that keeps you safe and healthy.

However, if your skin is exposed to too much UV Radiation, your skin will begin to compensate by producing extra Melanin in areas that receive extra sun.

Because your skin is not perfectly flat, and because it does not receive sunlight from all angles evenly, your skin will naturally produce more Melanin in certain areas, and less in others.  If this happens for an extended period of time, your skin will become accustomed to producing the extra Melanin in uneven amounts, and it will cause long term effects on your skin tone. This is known as Hyperpigmentation

In addition to Hyperpigmentation, stress or a poor diet can cause your skin to dry out. These dry patches will frequently have a different texture and skin tone from your regular, healthy skin and interfere with your naturally beautiful complexion.

What Can Be Done to Improve Skin Tone?

In order to improve your skin tone, it is important to take several steps.

First, you should exfoliate the skin and cleanse away thick patches of dry skin. An exfoliating scrub, such as the Exfoliating Oatmeal Body Scrub or the Exfoliating Sugar Scrub, can work wonders on evening out the skin’s texture and removing thick patches of dead skin.

Once the thick patches of dry skin have been cleansed away, apply Skin Brightening Cream to any remaining dark patches of skin. Utilizing Vitamin C and a skin brightening agent, the cream works to reduce hyperpigmentation and even out the skin tone, leading to brighter, healthier looking skin.
