Bright, glowing, radiant skin— the epitome of skincare goals.
Nothing screams healthy, enviable skin like a face that has zero makeup on and still looks amazing.
Sure, there are products out there like highlighters, glow lotions, etc.— but we don’t think you should have to have to fake it ‘til you make it. We here at Skin by Lovely want you to have skin that glows from the inside out.
And in order to achieve this goal, you need to cover your bases.
Protect the skin. ✓
Exfoliate the skin. ✓
Correct the skin. ✓
These 3 products for brighter skin will help you do just that.
Product #1: Protect
Revision Skincare Vitamin C Lotion 30%
If you want brighter skin, antioxidant skincare is non-negotiable. Revision Skincare’s C+ Correcting Complex or Vitamin C Lotion 30% is one of the most potent Vitamin C skincare products on the
market today and is comprised of THC Ascorbate, or Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate, a form of Vitamin C that is known for its stability and ability to penetrate the skin, aka get results!
Vitamin C also helps protect the skin from free radicals, a fancy term for molecules that damage the skin. This damage includes premature aging, hyperpigmentation and even skin cancer lesions. Unfortunately, none of us are immune to free radical damage as it’s caused by things like air pollution, cigarette smoke, and UV rays.
Bottom line, do not- we repeat, do not under any circumstances omit Vitamin C from your skincare routine. It is the ultimate multi-tasker and protector and should be used daily!
When to apply: Every morning after cleansing and prior to moisturizer and SPF.
Product #2: Exfoliate
Revision Skincare D·E·J Night face cream™
When some people hear the word ‘exfoliation’ they are transported back to their youth and images of using harsh face washes from the early 2000’s flash before their eyes. If you are one of those people- don’t fret. Exfoliating skincare has come a long way.
Exfoliation can take the form of manual or physical exfoliation, ie. using a washcloth, facial scrubs, etc.— but there is also chemical exfoliation and it is incredibly important for bright, radiant skin.
Revision Skincare’s D·E·J Night face cream contains Retinol, an antioxidant (Vitamin A) that when applied topically converts to retinoic acid within our skin. This process communicates to our cells to regenerate— this regeneration results in firmer, tighter, brighter skin.
Also found in D·E·J Night face cream is an ingredient called Bakuchiol, an antioxidant that boosts the effectiveness of Retinol, making D·E·J Night face cream a must-have on your bathroom vanity.
When to apply: Nightly as your last skincare step (after cleansing and serums).
Product #3: Correct
SkinMedica Lytera® 2.0 Pigment Correcting Serum
Last but certainly not least on our list is SkinMedica’s Lytera® 2.0 Pigment Correcting Serum. If you have existing dark spots and hyperpigmentation, you will definitely want to incorporate this into your daily routine.
Containing ingredients like Tranexamic Acid, Niacinamide, and Phytic Acid— Lytera 2.0 helps to correct existing pigmentation issues while also enhancing the texture and overall appearance of your skin.
95% of participants in SkinMedica’s clinical study also reported that Lytera 2.0 diminished the appearance of their dark spots after 13 weeks of use. Continued use will not only treat your current pigmentation, but will also help prevent new dark spots from forming.
When to apply: Morning and night, after cleansing and prior to SPF or night cream.
Best Skincare Products for Bright, Glowing Skin
Dull, lackluster skin doesn’t stand a chance against these 3 products for brighter skin. You’ll be glowing from the inside-out in no time.
And remember— just as important as any of these 3 products is SPF! Any time you are exfoliating your skin or applying retinoids, sun protection becomes even more important to protect your beautifully bright skin from UV damage and burns.
