Best Skin Brightener – What Works For Me
I spent many hours in the sun during my younger days because I was an avid golfer. Many of the older ladies would advise me to use sufficient sunblock lotion, apply moisturizing creams and carry an umbrella. I didn’t really listen to them.
In fact, I used to laugh at these golfing ladies who would wear long sleeve shirts, long pants and wide brimmed hats to cover their skin from the sun. I was young and you know how that is. When you’re a teenager, you don’t really worry about what will happen to your skin when you’re in your 40s.
Well, what can I say, the years have caught up with me and the age spots on my face are plentiful. I regret now. Fortunately, today you have many good skin brighteners to choose from.
So, what were wrong with the skin brightening products that I used?
This dark spot remover I tried didn’t feel good on the skin. After application, my face felt greasy and oily. It wasn’t doing much to make my age spots go away either.
I was hopeful and used it for around 4 months. It wasn’t cheap and I wanted so badly to see a difference. Needless to say, I was very disappointed. Maybe it wasn’t potent enough. Anyway, that was money down the drain. Wish I could get my money back. Another product just didn’t work for me.
Out shopping one day I came across one product that seemed really good. The sales girl told me it was the top brown spot remover for face. I was really interested until she told me that it would take at least two bottles for it to work. That didn’t sit well with me. I didn’t want to take the risk of buying two bottles just to see if it could work. If you ask me, a good product should work with the first bottle right?
So when I go shopping for the best skin brightener, these are some of the things I consider.
It shouldn’t contain harmful ingredients. I don’t want to end up dealing with side effects. Hydroquinone may effectively lighten your skin but I would rather choose safe, natural ingredients that are just as effective. For black people, there is a higher risk of developing exogenous ochronosis when using hydroquinone.
It has to feel nice on the skin. I don’t like heavy creams that leave my face feeling oily and greasy. I certainly don’t want it clogging up my pores.
It should be fragrance-free or at least have a pleasant smell.
Offers money back guarantee. Very important especially if the product is expensive. Every product will promise you miracles but I’ve learned that whether a product will work or not really depends on how our body reacts to it. So basically every product is a trial by error. If you don’t try, you won’t know. If the product has a money back guarantee, at least you can get your money back if it doesn’t work for you. Plus, when a company offers a money back guarantee, it shows they are confident in their product. However, you still must do your homework and try to find out how good is their customer service.
