Vitamin C is well known for brightening the skin and many dermatologists recommend it for all the right reasons. It can lighten hyperpigmentation, encourage collagen production and make the skin tone better. However, it can’t be the only solution. Especially when it comes to the dullness of the skin, your Vitamin C serum is not the only product that you can use.
Only relying on vitamin C can be an outdated idea. We might not be getting the best illuminating power we want because of external factors like light, pH and even temperature. Below are some dermatologically approved skin illuminating products which will make it big in the future.
Kojic Acid is the main brightening ingredient in this product. This is great for women who are pregnant or are breast feeding. This has three qualities: calming, hydration and brightening. Vitamin C might not be well tolerated by these women and it might not give that proper brightening. This green gel also includes arbutin which can work very well for hyper-pigmentation. It can help in the inflammation of the skin and also bring about hydration. This Kojic Acid is an all in one product.
Clinical Grade IPL dark spot serum
This one does take its power from Vitamin C for brightening. However, it has a combination of arbutin and kojic acid too which then makes it a powerhouse for brightening of the skin.
Pigment Spot Treatment
This cost effective serum has been approved by dermatologists too. It is a spot treatment and also an overall face treatment. It has been made by eight ingredients (the simple the better!). Kojic acid has been paired up with Salicylic acid to reduce that dark spot and exfoliate. The best part about this product is that it is free from artificial chemicals like gluten and synthetic or made-up dyes which can be bad for the skin.
10% Azelaic Acid booster
This one is the best for those who have a deep toned skin. This is known to be one of those products which have the highest Azelaic Acid concentration. It decreases melasma and post-inflammatory hyper pigmentation in deep colored skin. If you one of those who have skin of color with lots of problems, this one is for you!
