SKIN BRIGHTENING: HOW TO HELP BRIGHTEN YOUR SKIN

If you’re looking for a major skincare glow-up, a skin brightening routine may be right for you! Bright skin means that your complexion is luminous and radiant. Instead of having a dull complexion, your skin feels smooth and is healthy-looking. Use the following tips to reveal fresh and brighter skin in just one week.
 

 What is Skin Brightening?

Skin brightening is the process of restoring vibrancy and radiance to your skin. A few key factors can negatively impact your skin’s complexion. However, most people don’t realize that getting brighter skin starts with your pores! Brightening skincare helps banish pore buildup to give you brighter, smoother, and more luminous skin.

We’ve formulated our brightening products with several different ingredients to help achieve your skincare goals. We use Yuzu lemon—a natural source of Vitamin C—known for its ability to balance and brighten your complexion. We also use ingredients known for their ability to smooth and deep clean your skin. Our brightening exfoliating scrub contains dragon fruit, a refreshing fruit known for its smoothing and clarifying properties. Our brightening clay mask is infused with papaya. This ingredient is known to smooth skin by removing dead skin buildup with natural fruit. Learn more about the ingredients we use in our products by visiting our ingredients FAQs!
 

 
5 Skincare Tips to Help Brighten your Skin

Now that you know what skin brightening is, here’s how you can restore your skin to a bright and radiant glow.
 

1. Prevent Pore Buildup With a Jelly Cleanser

If you have dull skin, you likely have pore buildup. Pore buildup is often caused by daily contaminants like dirt, excess oil, dead skin cells, and environmental pollutants. Even with proper skincare, some daily cleansers are not effective at removing deeply embedded sebum, hardened oils, and pore clogs. Our jelly cleanser banishes pore buildup to improve skin tone and texture without resorting to harsh scrubbing or over-cleansing that may irritate your skin. The most effective way to use this jelly cleanser is to apply the cleanser and massage your face for a full minute. Then, rinse off your face with water for 30 seconds to remove pore buildup and other impurities.
 

 2. Brighten Skin With a Gentle Exfoliator

Another top cause of dull skin is dead skin cells. These can accumulate on the surface of your skin and clog your pores. A brightening face scrub helps improve skin tone and texture by sloughing away the dead skin cells to reveal noticeably brighter skin. Our brightening scrub uses alumina, a natural exfoliant, as well as Yuzu lemon and dragon fruit to help revitalize uneven skin.
 

3. Apply Moisturizer Daily

Dehydrated skin can leave your skin looking dry and dull. Face moisturizer helps your skin stay hydrated and plump, allowing your skin to glow from within. Make sure to incorporate moisturizer into your daily skincare routine. For added benefit, look for a moisturizer with UV protection to protect your skin from sun exposure during the day.
 

 4. Treat Your Skin To a Brightening Mask

Brightening face masks work by lifting away dead skin cells to improve your skin tone and texture. Using a brightening mask a few times a week can help boost your skin’s radiance for a healthy, bright complexion.
 

5. Shield Your Skin From Sun Exposure

Overexposure to the sun’s UV rays can cause your skin to dry out and become dull. It’s also the leading cause of skin aging and loss of skin elasticity. When going outside, always use sunscreen to protect your skin from sun damage.
 

 
More Tips for Brighter Skin

When looking to brighten your complexion, you may want to make some lifestyle changes to help improve your skin's health.

  • Hydrate. Drink plenty of water throughout the day to ensure you are well-hydrated. Consider reducing your coffee and alcohol intake. Both are diuretic, so they can dehydrate your skin.

  • Get enough sleep. Your body and skin recover while you sleep, so try to get 8 hours of sleep each night.

  • Eat the rainbow. A balanced diet provides the nutrients needed by the skin to stay healthy and smooth. Antioxidant-rich foods like fruit with Vitamin C and vegetables like kale and spinach are known to help the health of your skin.

  • Avoid touching your face. Picking or poking at your skin can introduce impurities to your face that can cause breakouts and acne flare-ups. If you have clogged pores and blackheads, use a brightening pore strip to instantly unclog pores and brighten your skin.

  • De-stress. Stress is known to increase the body’s cortisol levels, which can lead to acne flare-ups and excess sebum production. Try to relax with meditation and self care to reduce stress and pamper yourself.
