How to get brighter skin and an even skin tone

How to achieve radiant looking skin
Reveal a brighter and more even complexion with our corrective and protective skincare. A bright, healthy complexion is something most women strive for, but it can be harder to achieve as we age. Age spots, discolouration, reduced levels of collagen and reduced cell turnover can dull the complexion – not to mention the free radicals in our environment caused by UV, pollution and smoke. So how can you help to bring back the brightness in between professional treatments? Here we reveal the right skincare ingredients and SkinCeuticals products that can help.

Use an exfoliating cleanser

An exfoliating cleanser is a simple way to instantly bring a glow back to your skin. SkinCeuticals Glycolic Renewal Cleanser has a soft foaming formula that’s enriched with 8% glycolic acid to visibly clear and brighten the skin. This cleanser is especially suited for discoloured and ageing skin due to gentle exfoliation Glycolic Acid delivers to the skin. Additionally you can use this cleanser alongside in-clinic Chemical Peels which will brighten skin and even skintone.

Apply a corrective night treatment

Your skin repairs and renews itself overnight so it’s important to apply products before bed that can assist in these vital processes. SkinCeuticals Glycolic 10 Renew Overnight solution is designed for exactly this purpose, accelerating cellular turnover as you sleep. It does this with free acid value of 10% glycolic acid at the optimal pH and concentration to evenly exfoliate the skin while causing minimising irritation. Not only does this make it really effective at improving the look of fine lines and wrinkles but it also boosts radiance in the skin.

If the dullness in your skin is caused primarily by brown patches and post-blemish marks, consider trying a targeted product such as SkinCeuticals Discoloration Defense serum. This potent serum is clinically proven to reduce the appearance of main types of discolouration while helping the skin to look brighter and more even. With 1.8% Tranexamic Acid and 5% Niacinamide, this daily-use dark spot corrector reduces the appearance of key types of skin discolouration, including stubborn brown patches and post-blemish scars. Apply a teaspoon-sized amount to the face and neck after cleansing, limiting use to every other night at first. It must always be used in conjunction with a sunscreen so ensure you make this the last step in your skincare routine the next morning.

Prevent future discolouration with sunscreen

Discolouration and dullness in the skin can be made worse by UV damage so a broad-spectrum sunscreen is a vital step in brightening the complexion. While most sunscreens are purely protective, Advanced Brightening UV Defense SPF50 also helps to correct visible discolouration. This formula contains a combination of corrective active ingredients such as Tranexamic Acid and Niacinamide and helps correct UV-induced discolouration. Apply every morning after your usual serum.

Follow each of these steps for a brighter, clearer and more even-looking complexion.
