Natural Skin Brightening Complex 1.2 oz
Natural Skin Brightening Complex with the use of sun protection helps to gradually lighten these problem areas by slowing down the process of pigmentation. As the skin cells shed, the areas of discoloration begin to fade.
This extremely effective and highly concentrated all natural skin brightening treatment combines the clarifying, antiseptic and skin brightening properties of kojic and azelaic acids.
Skin type: Hyperpigmented - Sun Damaged - Acne
HOW IT WORKS:
AZELAIC ACID is a yeast that lives on normal skin, malassezia furfur (also known as Pityrosporum ovale). Azelaic acid has many uses in skin care, it is used as a topical treatment for mild to moderate acne and is useful for both comedonal and inflammatory acne. It is antibacterial - reduces the growth of bacteria in the follicle (p acne and staphylococcus epidermis). It is a scavenger of free radicals and helps to reduce pigmentation. It is particularly useful for darker skinned individuals that may have acne dark spots or melasma who may be sensitive to other skin lightening ingredients such as HQ. Azelaic acid is non-toxic and is well tolerated by most individuals. However, those with very sensitive skin or who suffer from eczema, may find it irritating to apply.
KOJIC ACID - derived from Japanese mushrooms; kojic acid imparts antioxidant, antibacterial, and general antimicrobial effects, works on the principle of inhibiting the tyrosinase enzyme that reduces the synthesis of melanin by the skin's melanocytes. Melanin that gives freckles and "age spots" their pigmentation are produced in a multi-step process from the conversion of the amino acid, tyrosine, into dopa and melanin; so inhibiting the tyrosinase enzyme that is a key part of this process stops the formation of irregular pigmentation (which over time lessens the appearance of existing irregular pigment as the skin naturally renews itself over time).
Regular use combined with sun protection gradually lightens dark (brownish) spots such as freckles and age spots or pigment in the skin that may occur in pregnancy or from use of oral contraceptives.
- For overall skin brightening, apply evenly to entire face at night.
- To balance uneven pigmentation, use only on areas with noticeable discoloration.
- If also using during the day, always follow with a generous application of SPF 20+ sunscreen.
- For extra help with stubborn dark spots, use in conjunction with VITA A COMPLEX.
Must be consistently used every day and night.
Expect to see results within 3-6 weeks.

I like it because it’s quite gentle on the skin. No complaints. I enjoy applying a moisturizer on top without any film or residue appearing. You can definitely layer a moisturizer without effecting the brightening serum. I have only used it for a week, a little fading has begun.
Only been using for a few days but I have used this product before. It worked well before. I hope it does again. Better to use something natural on my skin as it is so sensitive. Be sure and use sunblock when going out in the sun to minimize recurrence. Of dark age spots.
6-1-2020: I have used this skin brightening serum for at least 6 years, you will see fading within 4 to 6 weeks, but I did learn a couple years ago first get rid of excess facial hair (peach fuzz) then use this and because there is no facial hair the serum is now right on bare skin where it should be. I use a finishing touch facial shaver to get excess hair off my face, all of these products no matter which you use, you will see even better results. Just use a cosmetic hair type shaver for the face, don't ever wax facial hair. But that is the secret for any facial product to work better otherwise the product will sit on the hair instead of the skin where it needs to be.
I like the light non-oily consistency of this Natural Brightening product. I've only been using it a couple weeks but I hope it helps to lightens a few small age spots I have. I generally do love Lotus Moon's skin and hair products, effective and natural. Please do more monthly discounts!
