I’m sure we all know by now that winter is prime pigmentation blasting time.
But if lasers and peels aren’t you’re deal, then Clarins Bright Plus is the way to go in my opinion.
It’s the most effective range I’ve used to target dark spots. Powerful plant extracts are harnessed to both treat existing marks, as well as help prevent further damage.
The current lineup comprises a Brightening Day Lotion SPF20 (R775), Brightening Revive Night Cream (R700), Tri-Intensive Serum (R710), as well as the brand new Brightening Body Veil SPF20 (R460).
The key ingredient in the current collection is Acreola fuit extract, chosen for it’s high concentration of Vitamin C – known to help fight uneven skintone.
Cleverly, both the day lotion and the Body Veil both contain SPF 20, as sun protection is imperative with any pigmentation treatments as, firstly they can make your skin more sun sensitive due to the exfoliation action they deliver, but, secondly, and more importantly in my opinion, the sun is more than likely what caused your pigmentation in the first place. So always wear SPF to protect your skin from further damage.
Patience is key in treating pigmentation. Remember that the damage is not just superficial, and the active ingredients need time to work their way through the different layers. You should allow 3 months to see real results when using a range like this, so don’t get despondent if after 2 weeks your skin looks no better (although, I have seen pretty rapid results with this range). Persevere, and stay out of the sun, and your skin will improve.
