Brightening Hero Advanced Correcting Gel – Taking care of your skin in autumn is essential as this season brings about several environmental and weather-related changes that can have an impact on your skin’s health and appearance.
You may have noticed a change in your skin’s appearance, after the impact of summer sun exposure. Although the sun in moderation, can give us a radiant appearance, if your skin is not protected sufficiently, it can increase signs of ageing, as well as advancing hyperpigmentation, brown patches, and uneven skin tone. Fortunately, help is at hand with the Brightening Hero water-based gel, which targets visible skin discolouration for brighter, more even-looking skin.
Brightening Hero correcting gel is supercharged with 5% niacinamide, 3% tranexamic acid, and 2% alpha arbutin as well as vitamin C and aloe vera that work together to address hyperpigmentation concerns. It helps to inhibit the production of melanin, the pigment responsible for dark spots and discolouration. The gel also promotes skin cell turnover, helps fade existing pigmentation, and supports a more even complexion.
This lightweight, oil-free gel rapidly absorbs into the skin allowing for easy application and absorption, making it convenient for daily use and is suitable for all skin types, including oily and dry skin.
HOW TO USE
It is recommended for AM and PM use after cleansing and toning.
Apply a thin layer to the entire face, neck, chest, or other affected areas.
Follow up with your existing regimen.
Twice daily use of Brightening Hero – correcting gel shows demonstrated improvement in brightness, texture, and clarity.
Use only as directed on unbroken skin.
Pro tip: Follow up with using SPF daily, to protect your skincare investment.
Hyperpigmentation is a common skin condition characterised by the darkening of certain areas of the skin. It occurs when there is an overproduction of melanin, the pigment responsible for skin, hair, and eye colour. There are several factors that can cause hyperpigmentation, including as mentioned sun exposure: UV rays from the sun stimulate the production of melanin as a defence mechanism to protect the skin from further damage. Prolonged or excessive sun exposure can lead to sunspots, freckles, and other forms of hyperpigmentation.
Hormonal changes and fluctuations such as those that occur during pregnancy (melasma or “pregnancy mask”), menopause, or as a result of birth control pills, can trigger hyperpigmentation in some individuals. It can also relate to genetics, skin trauma, medications and the natural ageing process.
Preventing and treating hyperpigmentation often involves practices such as sun protection (using sunscreen, hats, and protective clothing), avoiding skin irritants, and using topical treatments.
