Tired of looking at those aged spots getting darker and darker? Many women (and men) struggle with uneven skin tone, dark splotches, freckles, and those dreaded age spots or liver spots on the hands and face as we age. Skin brightening creams as well as skin fade cream options are available over-the-counter – if you know where to look and what to look for. Brightening creams are perfect for tackling those dark, tan or brown age spots that build up on your skin, causing uneven skin tone. Those brownish age spots are caused by a buildup of dead skin cells, and most often are found on the skin of the hands and face, mainly because they are the two parts of your body consistently exposed to sunlight.
A good brightening cream or skin fading cream will contain ingredients that include anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant ingredients that reduce or inhibit the synthesis or production of melanin in the skin. Melanin is naturally found in the body, responsible for pigmentation in your skin. Know what to look for in a brightening cream or fading creams that will give you the results you’re looking for without breaking the bank.
One of the most beneficial ingredients you can find in fading creams or brightening lotions and cream is Alpha-arbutin. Alpha-arbutin helps to even skin tone and reduce the appearance of age spots or liver spots on your skin. Tests using Alpha arbutin as a skin fade cream on eighty individuals resulted in improvement in skin tone of age or liver spots in 85% of them after twelve weeks.
Skin brightening agents such as Belides are also effective in reducing blotchy or unappealing pigmentation caused by age or liver spots. Belides are a derivative culled from daisy flowers and provide skin lightening benefits to those dealing with freckles, uneven skin tone or pigmentation as well as age spots.
