It’s not just whitening – it’s an all-rounder champ in helping you achieve a brighter side of life, literally on your skin.
Religiously following a skin-whitening regimen is not all about looking like Snow White. Sure, there are vanity reasons involved – but aside from looking flawlessly radiant, a whitening regimen can help make your skin the healthiest it can be. Here are five reasons why every skin needs a whitening regimen.
Your skin is prone to scarring
Some of us may sport more prominent facial scars because our bodies have different reactions to the healing process. For instance, your skin type and colour play a role in how your natural pigmentation will affect your scars. Often, those with darker skin tend to have more noticeable scars.
How your whitening regimen comes to the rescue: Skin brightening serums and creams work to fade scars that may effectively even out your skin tone.
You put your skin under routine exposure to daylight
Sun exposure promotes an increase in the production of melanocytes – cells that increase the melanin in your skin. If your skin produces too much melanin, it gets darker. So if you live in sunny Southeast Asia, you’re prone to getting dark skin patches known as dark spots, age spots, sun spots and brown spots.
How your whitening regimen comes to the rescue: Whitening products help combat sun damage while fading dark spots with a brightening complex. They often contain varying levels of SPF to prevent further damage.
Your body is undernourished — and so is your skin
When coupled with a diet lacking in water and nutrient-rich foods (with a broad colour spectrum), your skin can look dull and tired with diminished elasticity.
How your whitening regimen comes to the rescue: Skin brightening products often contain antioxidants such as Vitamin C. These antioxidants fight free radicals, and repair damaged skin when applied after sun exposure.
