How to get Naturally Brighter Skin

Bright, radiant skin is healthy skin. There’s something about a glowing, bright complexion that just looks “healthy,” while dull, dry skin appears tired and congested. That said, there’s only so much that eight hours of sleep and two litres of water can do for the complexion. Your ticket to a brighter complexion? Vitamin C.

If you suffer from pigmentation, uneven skin tone or just an overall “dull” complexion, invest in natural, brightening skincare. The fusion of occurring ingredients, rich in Vitamin C, and scientific advances leads us to our Brightening range- a collection of natural, potent daily skincare products and treatments formulated to promote brighter, more radiant skin.

Which natural ingredients are best for brightening the skin?

Widely touted as the best ingredient for brightening the skin and evening out the complexion, Vitamin C or Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate (as we use) has the ability to naturally even out the skin tone. Vitamin C, derived naturally from citrus fruits, works to brighten, not lighten, the skin, and over time works to promote optimal skin health leaving it glowing and radiant. 

Turmeric, pumpkin, carrot and chia work concurrently with Vitamin C to add nutrients and resurface the skin, ensuring that the health of the skin’s all-important protective barrier isn’t compromised throughout the brightening process.

Our Brightening range harnesses the brightening powers of both Vitamin C and Turmeric for more radiant skin, and combines those ingredients with our Fruit Stem Cell science to promote a more youthful, even complexion.

 

But does it work?

As revealed through testing we conducted with real Australian women, 90% of people agreed that the Andalou Brightening range left their skin looking more radiant and luminous. 80% of testing participants agreed that the collection made their skin look more healthy, youthful and “plump,” while 70% stated that the range brightened their complexion by evening their overall skin tone and reducing the appearance of pigmentation.

Which products should you use for brighter skin?

If you’re looking for a skincare regime that will deliver a brighter, younger looking complexion, choose natural products that will support the health of the skin.

To gently remove makeup, opt for the Andalou Lash + Lid Makeup Remover, and for a deeper cleanse follow that up with the Meyer Lemon + C Creamy Cleanser. The former works to nourish and condition the skin (including the delicate eye area) as it removes makeup, while the latter harnesses potent enzymes and antioxidants to sweep away impurities and rid the skin of dry, dull skin cells.

If you experience particularly dry skin, work the Chia Omega + C Radiant Skin Polish into your routine as necessary. This physical exfoliant uses micro-polishing chia to buff away dead skin to reveal a brighter complexion.

 



Prepare your skin for serums and more concentrated treatments by sweeping the Clementine + C Illuminating Toner over the face, increasing circulation and gently balancing the skin’s pH. Once your skin is prepped, apply the Turmeric + C Enlighten Serum to target UV exposed cells and other surface disparities.

Complete your routine with the Luminous Eye Serum and either the Probiotic + C Renewal Cream (for day) or Purple Carrot + C Luminous Night Cream (for evening), then enjoy an even more concentrated treatment with a weekly mask in the form of our Pumpkin Honey Glycolic Mask or Instant Brighten & Tighten Hydro Serum Facial Mask.
