Bright Revolution

The new whitening skincare troops are here. This time, the focus isn’t on a new technology or star ingredient. The trending concept is simple but revolutionary: Layering.

We’ve been doing it with our fragrances — showering with a scented body wash, moisturising with a perfumed lotion and then spritzing on the eau de toilette or parfum. This helps the scent to stick around all day. The same goes with the latest whitening skincare launches. They are made to work together like a 24-7 programme, with ingredients that work synergistically in the short and long-term for the best skin-illuminating results.

Start Afresh: Cleanse your skin

There’s more to the quintessential cleanse-and-prep skincare regimen than meets the eye with these skin-brightening basics. They have makeup-dissolving, grime-reducing and skin-toning ingredients, plus they also help to slough away dull dead skin cells. This crop of new whitening cleansers also has antioxidants like licorice to calm and protect skin from inflammation, which is a major cause of hyperpigmentation.

Fair Infusions: Pump the skin with moisture

One of the fastest way to achieve a radiant complexion is to infuse the skin with moisture. Hydrated skin is plumped and more cushiony with a supple and bouncy texture. This helps it appear smooth and glowy. Besides moisturising ingredients like hyaluronic acid and royal jelly, these emulsions, lotions and creams are also chockfull of skin-brighteners like vitamin C and white orchid extracts.

Target Sighted: Invest in targeted skincare

If you’re really serious about achieving a brighter complexion, attention to detail is crucial. We’re talking about the beseiged areas around the eyes and on the cheeks where hyperpigmentation spots tend to cluster. An overall whitening serum or cream works on the overall complexion and are not targeted enough to lighten stubborn hyperpigmentation spots, and some aren’t suitable for use around the delicate eye area. Try these eye creams and intensive spot correctors instead.

01 Innisfree Whitening Pore Eye Cream (30ml), S$47. 02 YSL Forever Light Creator Eye Fluid Dark Circle Corrector, $119. 03 Lancome Blanc Expert Melanolyser [AI] Intense Whitening Spot Eraser, $160. 04 Philosophy Brighten My Day Expert Dark Circle Brightening and Perfecting Eye Cream, $58. 05 Sisley Phyto-Blanc Intensive Dark Spot Corrector, $200.

Base Camp: Opt for multi-tasking base makeup

These makeup bases and CC Creams that fall under the skincare brands’ whitening lines are true multitaskers. They not only make your skin look smooth and even-toned, but also contain skin-brightening benefits just like their serum and cream counterparts. Our philosophy with makeup: If it’s going to sit on your skin all day long, you might as well pick one that does more for your skin than simply make it look good.

01 Biotherm White D-Tox C.C. Cream, $62 each. 02 Diorsnow UV Shield Brightening Illuminating SPF 50 PA+++, $85. 03 Guerlain Orchidee Imperiale UV Protector, $208. 04 Chanel Le Blanc Light Creator Brightening Makeup Base SPF40/PA+++, $84.
