Level Up Your Whitening Routine

We’ve got the trick to fairer skin - fast!


If you already have a whitening routine in place, but aren’t getting the results you want, chances are you’re using low-quality or ineffective products. Don’t fret, though. You can easily level up your skin brightening routine and score pinkish white skin fast by adding a whitening day cream (because whitening soaps may not be enough). How to know which one really works? Look for these key criteria:

#1: It contains ingredients that work from within.
It’s not enough to use a whitening soap that gives you superficial fairness, since the whitening actives can get washed away with the water. A more effective way to lighten your skin is to use a day cream that can penetrate the skin and work from the inside going out. Just make sure it has ingredients like Pro-Vitamin B3, which improves the complexion and minimizes dark spots by inhibiting the transfer of melanin to the surface. It’s one of the best ways to score bright, rosy white skin that looks au naturel!

Maximize your benefits: Regular cleansing and exfoliating unclogs your pores, helping skin absorb your whitening product better.

#2: It helps with skin cell repair.

Damaged skin cells equal dull, dark skin, so healthy skin cells are crucial for that achieving a fresh and radiant glow. Because of this, your day cream’s formula should contain antioxidants - like Korean ginseng and saffron - to counteract skin-darkening damage caused by external aggressors.




Maximize your benefits: You can also load up on antioxidants by munching on fruits rich in Vitamin C, like oranges, strawberries, and lemons.

#3: It has SPF.

What’s the point of putting on whitening products if you’re going to burn yourself under the sun anyway? A really effective day cream has to have at least SPF 15 to keep you guarded from the sun’s UV rays - the No.1 cause of pigmentation - helping you achieve your fairer-skin goals faster. 

Maximize your benefits: Don’t underestimate the skin-boosting power of protective clothing and accessories, like hats and scarves! 

The bottom line: You don’t need to spend on a gamut of beauty treatments in order to score the complexion you’ve always wanted. By using the right whitening cream regularly every day - one that’s non-oily and leaves skin with a fresh, matte finish - you’ll be flaunting your rosy white skin in no time.
