No one wants to live with hyperpigmentation and uneven skin tone. Yet, turning to the controversial ingredient hydroquinone could cause more problems than it solves. In fact, while hydroquinone is a powerful at inhibiting melanin production to help lighten and brighten skin, it comes with some big sides, including possible darkening of the skin and cancer worries.
So how can you brighten skin without the risk of hydroquinone?
Luckily, the answer is easy.
#1 – Arbutin
A skin-brightening agent from the leaves of several plants including bearberry, blueberry, cranberry and pear trees, arbutin works much the same way as hydroquinone without its negatives.
Arbutin inhibits an enzyme found in melanocytes known as tyrosinase, effectively turning down melanin production.
#2 – Licorice
Like arbutin, licorice root can helps to combat excess melanin production by inhibiting tyrosinase. But it also shines in reducing skin sensitivities that damage tone, including rosacea. And its rich levels of antioxidants work to roll back free radical damage that leads to uneven tone and dark spots.
#3 - Azelaic Acid
This dicarboxylic acid isn’t just a powerful skin brightener, it offers anti-redness properties that leave skin even and radiant. Derived from yeast, wheat, rye and barley, the acid was originally used to combat acne when its lightening abilities were discovered.
The acid is keratolytic, capable of whisking away dead surface cells and targets the root causes of hyperpigmentation.
#5 - Vitamin C
For infinite radiance, the powerful antioxidants in vitamin C simply can’t be beat.
Vitamin C works to reverse the damaging effects of free radicals caused by exposure to environmental toxins such as UV rays and pollutants. It also inhibits the production of melanin in your skin, while boosting collagen production.
In other words, vitamin C is a triple-threat powerhouse that delivers healthier, brighter, more lifted skin.
