Skin Brighteners

When hyperpigmentation (brown spots) appears on the face, decollete and the backs of the hands, most of the time, it is a result of sun damage. These are a few new natural alternatives that will fade dark spots. But they do take time, so be patient. You should see results in 14-28 days.

Kimberly Sayer of London Lightening and Brightening Serum
The daughter of organic farmers in England, Sayer continues the tradition with a blend of natural and organic ingredients like Atlantic algae, seaweed extract from the Arctic, wheat extract and California bearberry leaf, to inhibit melanin production; licorice root, neroli oil, olive and lemon extracts to brighten skin; and alfalfa extract to stimulate cell renewal and tighten.


Melvita Nectar Bright Brightening Essence
From a French brand that is becoming easier to find in the US, this skin-brightener–along with a skin-brightening cream and scrub/mask—relies on a complex of five white flowers—daisy, lupin, wintergreen, sea lily and narcissus to inhibit the transfer of pigment into cells before it happens, and reduce existing dark spots by accelerating cellular renewal.
