As the sun is getting stronger and more UV rays are coming through the ozone layer every year, hyperpigmentation and dark spots have become more and more common and starts at earlier age.
It seems like everyone struggles with sun spots nowadays and people are looking for a quick fix, something that will even their skin tone and smooth out the spots.
This is why there are so many lightening and bleaching products on the market and the options are endless. Which makes it harder to know which products will give us the results we seek without side effects.
BUT! It's important to know the difference between the different types of lightening ingredients out there.
1. Prescription ingredients- as hydroquinone and Tretinoin, both are effective with lightening dark spots and melasma but can be used only for a short period and wean off them slowly to prevent rebound pigmentation
2. Natural lightening ingredients- my choice of products! Ingredients like Niacinamide, Kojic acid, Alpha Arbutin, Lemon Peel Bioferment or Azelaic acid.
Those ingredients are the safe option but will take more time to work. They are effective, can be used indefinitely and have no side effects on our hormonal system or any other system in our body. You'll start seeing results anytime between 4-8 weeks.
DANAPAZ beauty KOJIC BRIGHTENING CREAM
is highly effective and suitable for even the most sensitive skin. Safe to use during pregnancy and can be used for the whole face, including the under eye area and suitable for all skin types.
Tips for seeing best results:
1. Consistency is the key here! Use it twice daily until the bottle is finished
2. Take before & after pics- our eyes get used to minor changes so when it comes to seeing a difference, we won't know the real effect unless we have a base line photo. Take a before photos on a natural day light before you start using any brightening product and after photos when the bottle is finished.
And don't forget to apply sunscreen when using brightening products!
