A long-running buzz in the beauty world, skin whitening has been the go-to trend of young women who wish to have flawless white complexion. Some people may think that the skin whitening process only includes lightening the skin, but it’s actually more than that. Skin whitening also targets imperfections that have been bothering you since they got into your skin. Curious about how skin whitening really works? We listed down its other effects to help you understand it better.

1.    It removes blemishes.

Skin whitening will also help you get rid of skin problems like pimples, whiteheads, and blackheads, giving you clear and smooth skin. Some products that address this concern create a powdery, matte finish, too!  Use a toner with niacinamide to brighten dull skin and reduce appearance of imperfections, giving you a flawless, translucent complexion.  

2.    It eliminates dark spots.

Those ugly pimple marks and age spots on your face will disappear into oblivion, all thanks to skin whitening. To avoid the occurrence of dark spots in the future, make sure to use creams that also offer sun protection. It’s like hitting two birds in one stone! Apply a day cream with Pro-Vitamin B3 on your face daily. This potent skin lightening agent is known to lighten skin and proven to reduce the appearance of dark spots.

3.    It gives the skin a pinkish white glow. 

Aside from a fair complexion, skin whitening makes skin look healthy by giving it a rosy flush, especially when you use the right products. Like the suggestion in the item above, go for products that have Pro-Vitamin B3, as this ingredient goes deep into the skin and inhibits the production of melanin, paving the way for a clear complexion. This way, you can achieve that pinkish white glow you’ve always wanted.
