How To: Get That Glow

Why do we ‘darken’? Because of melanin – the same thing that also protects us from the harm caused by the sun’s harsh UV rays!

More Melanin?

Melanin is the pigment produced by melanocyte cells. Melanin production in turn is triggered by the enzyme, tyrosinase. Our skin’s colour as well as the colour of the hair, eyes is based upon the actions of tyrosinase. If you cut down tyrosinase activity, pigmentation, darkening and tanning can be controlled and even reversed up to a point.

Lighten, Whiten, Brighten!

Skin lightening products are formulated with active ingredients that penetrate deep into the layers of the skin to counteract the activity of tyrosinase. This slows down melanin production and prevents darkening of the skin. In addition, skin lightening products are exfoliants and induce mild skin peeling to help resurface a fresher and lighter skin layer. So the outer, darker and duller skin layers are slowly peeled off to reveal a younger, brighter skin that’s fairer due to reduced melanin. Simple!

Look Out For:

Ingredients abound on creams and tubes. But when we talk about ‘active’ ingredients that actually make a difference, then here’s what you should be looking for in your whitening product: hydroquinone, soy, vitamin c, corticosteroids, licorice, hydroxystilbene, alosein, glutathione, glycolic acid, n acetyl glucosamine, gentisic acid, green tea, melatonin, monobenzyl ether of hydroquinone, azelaic acid, kojic acid, arbutin, retinoids, mequinol and niacinamide.
