What does skin brightening mean in skin care and how to create a perfect routine?

You’ll often find skincare fanatics using buzzwords like glowing, moisturizing, anti-ageing and more. However, one very prominent and frequently used term is ‘skin brightening’.  While the name may be pretty self-explanatory, is skin brightening as simple as it seems? We are here to break down what skin brightening in skin care actually means and how it can transform your skin. We have also curated a special routine with brightening products that will give you radiant skin.

What is skin brightening?

Skin brightening is when you use products that help you reduce scars, hyperpigmentation, and acne, amongst other things. Brightening essentially evens out your skin tone and lets your natural skin shine. Brightening products are formulated to nourish and hydrate your skin along with evening out your skin tone.

Is skin brightening the same as skin lightening?

People often confuse skin brightening with lightening. However, these two are completely different. Skin lightening is when products are used to change your complexion and make it lighter. This is done by using topical products with ingredients that reduce the melanin in your skin. Whereas, brightening completely focuses on improving the overall health of your skin. Brightening products are formulated with potent ingredients that help even out your skin while helping you combat any other skin concerns you may have.

The perfect routine for skin brightening

We all wish to have even and beautiful skin. A good skincare routine can make all the difference in the world and help you achieve your skin goals. Here is the perfect skin brightening routine that will make your skin healthy and glowing!

1. Cleansing

The first most important step of every good skincare routine is cleansing your skin. Using a brightening facewash helps you get rid of all the dirt on your skin while giving you a radiant look from the first step. The Garnier Bright Complete Brightening Duo Action Face Wash is enriched with the properties of lemon and purifying properties of white clay. This magical formulation of this brightening facewash reduces dullness, cleanses skin and brings back the lost glow.

2. Serum

Incorporating a serum into your routine is sure to transform your skin. Brightening serums are loaded with potent ingredients that penetrate deep into your skin. This helps to brighten your skin from within. The Garnier Bright Complete Vitamin C Serum is loaded with vitamin C extracts. It reduces dark spots and acne marks in just 3 days making it one of the best brightening serums.

For those special days, where you want an extra glow you can use the Garnier Bright Complete Serum Sheet Mask. The skin brightening mask infuses new life into tired skin and reduces the appearance of dark spots to give your skin an instant glow. The sheet masks are drenched with a brightening serum that gives you radiant skin in just 15 minutes.

3. Moisturizing

To lock in that radiant skin, the last step of your skin brightening routine is using a face brightening cream. A skin brightening cream hydrates and protects your skin while giving you a glow. Regularly using a skin brightening cream also helps to even out your skin over time.

The Garnier Bright Complete Vitamin C Serum Cream with SPF 40/PA +++ is the perfect daytime skin brightening cream. Infused with yuzu lemon extracts, SPF and 3X vitamin C serum, this skin brightening cream protects your skin against the 3 signs of sun-induced damage – skin tanning, dark spots, and sunburns.

The Garnier Bright Complete Vitamin C Yoghurt Night Cream is a nighttime skin brightening cream. Formulated with vitamin C, lemon essence and yoghurt bifidus, this cream repairs your skin overnight. The face brightening cream gently exfoliates dead cells and brightens the skin while you get your beauty sleep.

A great tip is to additionally incorporate anti-ageing products into your brightening routine. This helps to nourish the skin, while delaying the signs of ageing.

The impact of skin brightening on your skin is huge. Even skin tone and a radiant glow will make your skin look healthy and happy.
