Essential Tips to Help You Brighten Your Skin Tone
Dull skin, uneven complexion and pigmentation are some of the most common skin concerns women have. While many products on the market promise miraculous results, those of you who have spent some serious cash on beauty products, know that not everything works. Today we’re taking you through the three most simple and effective (in our opinion) ways to brighten your complexion and bring your skin back to life.
Beauty experts agree: Exfoliation is the key to healthy, good-looking skin.
Why? Because under that dull layer of dead epidermal cells, lies your fresh, glowing complexion. Be it physical/chemical exfoliation, microdermabrasion or lasers, all of these do the same thing. They help shed dead cells from the skin surface + stimulate the formation of new cells + improve the flow of oxygen & nutrients to the skin.
Whilst salon treatments (laser and chemical peels) are very effective, they might not be an option for those of you who are on a budget. The solution? Exfoliating at home with a gentle facial scrub is cheap, easy and will have your complexion refreshed in a matter of minutes.
Regardless of whether you have dry/oily/combination skin, regular exfoliation should form an essential part of your skincare routine. For best results, exfoliate at least 2 times a week, using a gentle face scrub, free of harsh chemicals.

2. Vitamin C
When it comes to hero ingredients for brighter skin, we vote for Vitamin C. Not only vitamin C will lighten hyperpigmented areas (au revoir, brown spots!), evening your skin tone, but it will boost collagen production, therefore increase skin's elasticity and firmness. (Goodbye, wrinkles!)
Added bonus: Apart from the above-mentioned benefits, Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant. It will protect your skin from external damage (free radicals and pollutants) + help prevent premature ageing.
What To Try: Vit-C Advanced Nightly Repair Nectar
For those of you who love natural vegetable oils, another good option to brighten skin tone is pure Rosehip Oil. Rosehip Oil has a high content of vitamin C, which makes it the ideal natural treatment against uneven complexion, lack of radiance and loss of elasticity. Rosehip oil can be applied in the morning or included in your evening beauty routine (used alone or combined with your nightly creme).
3. Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate
Many of us, although aware, often underestimate the importance of regular, profound, hydration. Skin gets thirsty, just like you do. When skin is dehydrated it appears greyish, wrinkles become more noticeable and skin imperfections seem to catch our attention more than they normally do. Applying the right products, at the right time, will give help restore a youthful glow and boost your skin’s natural beauty and vitality.
If you have dry skin, it is ESSENTIAL to apply moisturizer morning and evening. Better yet, keep a hydrating facial mist on hand during the day to add lustre to your skin. If you have oily/combination skin, we recommend using a moisturising serum/fluid in the morning (to avoid getting the “shiny face” look in the middle of the day). In the evening finish with a light moisturiser. Your skin will thank you for quenching its thirst.
