We all know that having glowing skin is usually the result of a good skincare routine or good genetics, and that it does wonders for your overall self-confidence. How many times have you stressed over a pimple and worried that it might leave a mark? Having dark spots on your face — whether they come from acne scars, sun damage, or ageing — can make your skin look inflamed and uneven.
This is where skin brightening products come in!
Skin brightening products contain ingredients that act to block the production of pigmentation. They can help in reducing dark spots and hyperpigmentation to make our skin tone appear more even and fresh-faced. It is not about the colour of the skin, but about providing even skin tone for an overall luminous healthy glow.
The use of skin brightening products is very popular in Asia. It’s mostly known as “whitening” there, which is often mistaken for the meaning of creating a “whiter colour” in the skin, but it’s actually more about lifting out pigmentation to enhance translucency.
Why is it so popular in Asia? It can be attributed to some of the sociocultural roots, where labourers and working class farmers were often darker than the wealthy who had the privilege of staying indoors. Hence, fair and translucent porcelain skin was associated with wealth and class. Today, people mostly just want a luminous and even skin tone complexion.
Is brightening skincare for everyone? Yes! Even if you don’t want fair skin, the answer is still yes.
Skin brightening products have come a long way, both in concept and the advancements in product technology. Whatever the skin colour, an even-toned, uniform complexion with a healthy glow is being increasingly recognised as one of the most important characteristics of beautiful, youthful skin.
Today’s brightening skin care products focus not only on fading facial pigmentation, but also achieving skin that’s more refined in texture.
