What Is Skin Brightening?
Owing to the British colonialism in South Asia, there has been a social stigma viz a viz darker skin tones therefore there is a huge market of face whitening creams and body whitening bleaches that work to change the skin color. These products use ingredients that are super harsh on the skin and make your skin fair for the moment but at a very heavy cost of damaging your skin. Therefore, one shouldn’t attempt to change their skin color but skin brightening is a beautiful and entirely different concept though many confuse it for the same.
Skin brightening essentially means making your dull skin
brighter and fresher looking. Every day wear and tear shows up on the skin and makes it dehydrated and dull. Picture this: You’re someone who goes to the office daily 9 AM to 5 PM and face the sun every day, moreover the work stress shows on your skin, making it dull and uneven-toned. You spend a day at a beach on a beautiful sunny day or go shopping in a nice outdoor Bazar on a bright spring day and tadaa, your skin has tanned and there are several sunspots on your skin. You’ll like to have brighter and even-toned skin that doesn’t make you look like a zebra, isn’t that correct?

Say No To Hydroxquinone And Mercury

It is best to steer clear of such ingredients and opt for natural and safe ingredients.
