We have made the NCN – Skin Brightening Lemon Cream Cleanser our star product of the week. This follows on from the last blog. Products that help to deal with hyperpigmentation/age spots.
Fade Existing Hyperpigmentation and Prevent it
As we said in the last post, hyperpigmentation can be difficult to treat. It may not ever fully disappear without a complex treatment programme. However, with persistence and a targeted approach its appearance can dramatically be improved. Certain key active ingredients and products can reduce it a lot and also prevent further hyperpigmentation.
The Key Actives in the Cleanser That Help With Hyperpigmentation
Lactic Acid gently exfoliates the skin, removing a build up of dead surface skin cells. It’s also an effective active ingredient for lightening age spots and improving the appearance of sun damaged skin. On top of that it also has a brightening effect on skin and the exfoliation process encourages cell turnover and promotes new collagen.
Liquorice decreases the production of melanin, so prevents hyperpigmentation. It also fades hyperpigmentation, any marks or blemishes left by acne and also age spots. If you have any marks left from scars, it will help to lighten those. A powerful antioxidant, it helps to prevent damage to the skin by neutralising free radicals, and it has the added benefit of reducing the appearance of dark circles under the eyes.
Lemon Peel Bioferment is a very effective and safe way to brighten the skin and reduce hyperpigmentation, age spots and any marks left by acne. It is said to be as effective as Hydroquinone, but totally natural and very safe, as well as working faster at lightening and brightening the skin for a more even tone.
Niacinamide is very effective at fading age spots and sun damage. It also improves skin redness. Very effective at lightening the skin, it does this by disrupting the transfer of melanosome from the melanocyte cells to the keratinocyte cells – so helping to prevent hyperpigmentation as well as lighten it. Other skin benefits are helping to improve Rosacea. Increasing hydration in the skin by reducing water loss and improving the skin’s barrier function. Niacinamide boosts collagen production which firms the skin and reduces fine lines, wrinkles and sagging.
Other ingredients included in the cleanser that nourish the skin and have benefits are, Aloe, Sunflower Seed Oil and Caprylic Tryglicerides.
An Even Skin Tone and Gorgeous Glow
In short, this cleanser will make a big difference! Its powerful and effective ingredients will give you a much more even skin tone with consistent use. The cream formula and fresh lemon scent (if you like lemon) make it feel uplifting to use.
