It is very essential that we all get to know our skins on a deeper level and not just skin-deep (pun intended). By doing that, we are able to identify our skin needs which in the long run gives us satisfaction as it would make us look and feel good.
Certain words on skin products might trigger red alerts especially if you are a dark-skinned beauty and you wish not to lose your skin color. But one revelation we have discovered there in the world of cosmetics is the differentiation between skin lightening and skin brightening.
The issue of skin lightening and skin brightening has been talked about for quite some time as many people are not able to really differentiate between the two. However, they are totally different concepts and Fashion Ghana will tell you why:
– Lightening which is another word for bleaching involves reducing the pigmentation of your skin and brightness has to do with increasing the radiance and glow of your skin.
– With Lightening focus is more on the discoloration and evening of skin tone but brightening focuses more on restoring vibrancy of the skin.
– Different ingredients are also used for the lightening and brightening products. Hydroquinone, Kojic Acid, Arbutine, Vitamin C and retinol are commonly used for the lightener and Vitamin C, retinol, alpha and beta hydroxy acids are used for the brightener.
– Long story short, the main difference is that brightening helps you get a natural, healthy and even complexion while whitening offers an alteration of your actual skin tone. Recommendation: Makari skincare products is currently the best for skin brightening, evening skin tones delivering excellent results for your skin.
