Here they are, our essential tips to help you brighten skin tone
Uneven skin tone, hyperpigmentation and lack of radiance are one of the most common skin concerns women have. Glowing complexion and healthy looking skin seem like a distant dream, when you wake up to the same grey-lifeless-face every day, right? Don’t despair! Today we’re taking you through the three most simple and effective ways to lighten and brighten skin tone.
Exfoliation is the key to healthy, good looking skin. Fact. Why else do you think there are countless exfoliation options on the market? Because under that dull, dead layer of skin, lies your fresh, glowing complexion! Be it chemical/mechanical peeling, microdermabrasion or lasers, all of these methods do the same thing. They ditch the old dead cells that make your skin look dull to reveal new, healthy cells responsible for glowing skin. Whilst salon treatments like laser and chemical peels are extremely effective, you can end up spending a small fortune. An at-home facial scrub is cheap, easy and will have your complexion refreshed in a matter of minutes!
What To Try: La Mav’s Organic Exfoliating Scrubs
Regardless of whether you have dry skin, or oily/combination, regular exfoliation should form an essential part of your skin care regime. For best results, make sure to exfoliate at least 2-3 times a week, using a high quality product, free of harsh chemicals. Like these two for example:
2. Vitamin C
In conjunction with regular exfoliation, products designed specifically to brighten skin tone are another way to achieve more even skin tone and healthier skin. Sounds good, but how do you know which products to choose? We suggest choosing products that contain ingredients that have been tested and proven to work, like Vitamin C.
When it comes to lightening and evening the skin tone, the ultimate champion is definitely Vitamin C! Not only vitamin C will diminish any hyper pigmented marks (au revoir, brown spots!) and brighten the skin, but it will boost collagen production. Goodbye, wrinkles!. Since Vitamin C is also a powerful antioxidant it will protect your skin from external damage (i.e free radicals that can harm the cells) and improve skin’s resistance overtime.

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 grey, wrinkles become more noticeable and skin imperfections seem to catch our attention even more. Applying the right products, at the right time, will give help restore a youthful glow and boost your skin’s natural beauty.
If you have dry skin: it is ESSENTIAL that you 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 suggest using a moisturising serum in the morning (to avoid getting the “shiny face” look in the middle of the day) and in the evening finish with a light moisturiser. It 2 minutes of your day very well spent!
