Thanks to lack of sun exposer in winter, our skin receives significantly less UV levels compared to the rest of the year, making it the ideal time to repair skin discolouration (from sunspots to acne scars and even melisma).
The use of a skin-tone perfecting brightener over a twelve-week period (the time it takes the skin to repair it’s self) can help reverse the effects from your latest dalliance in the sun by targeting dark spots, illuminating skin tone and preventing further discolouration.
