This is a concentrated serum with no water or chemical preservatives. It is to lighten the skin, but it is NOT a whitening serum that bleaches the skin with the intent of being fairer-skinned. This is geared towards reversing hyperpigmentation due to sun damage and age spots without disrupting your natural skintone.
WHY USE A LIGHTENING SERUM ON AGING SKIN
I noticed as I got older, my skin got more brown spots, especially in areas that the sunlight would hit such as the top of my cheekbones, my forehead, and my nose. I got a few random brown spots – better known as age spots – as well. I noticed my skin was losing its’ rosy glow. While I generally associate wrinkles and sagging with aging, these are structural changes to the skin. But another sign of aging that is easier to remedy is the lackluster look skin often has as it ages, in part, due to duller skin and hyperpigmentation due to sun damage. These dark sun-damage spots often occur diffusely across areas one would instead wish to highlight – such as the top of the cheekbone. Having a splattering of dark spots in these areas It is almost like having contour where highlighter should be.
It dispenses from the bottle a drop at a time, and not much is needed. It is an oily consistency. It can be applied directly to the skin or combined with other serums or creams. I apply it with my Glucan Cream made by the same company. The reason for this is that while it is not as powerful as a peel, it is a potent treatment, so pairing it with a moisturizer that soothes is helpful to avoid redness and irritation.
I was surprised how quickly my skin looked dewy, and how it did seem to tackle some uneven areas such as the skin on and around my nose. The darker spots on my upper cheekbones seem lighter. My skintone itself has not changed, only the dark hyperpigmented areas have begun to fade. It is not an overnight change, but I am happy so far with the results.
