What is the difference between Glowing & Brightening & lightening in skincare?

We all see glowing brightening and lightening words on most of the skincare products. At first, they all seem similar but no these are different and serves a different purpose. Let's break them down.

What Is Skin Whitening?

Skin whitening is something when you want to change your skin tone that is lighter than your original/natural colour. This treatment involves the use of chemicals and lasers, it is advised to seek professional guidance before opting for such processes. Few products or brand claims skin whitening are using ingredients which may give you short term results but might not be a permanent solution. Our brand Loee bobvn doesn't have any product to claim skin whitening and to value ethics we are strongly against the brand that claims skin whitening.

What Is Skin Lightening?

Skin lightening is more of correcting or treating the skin issues caused by sun or skin issues like acne pimples or hyperpigmentation. Imagine the darker skin left after sun exposure or acne spots. Darker spots occur when melanin deposits on your skin and create a visible difference from your natural skin tone. Skin lightening products are formulated to even skin tone with ingredients like Vitamin C, Retinol, Kojic acid & Arbutine.

What Is Skin Brightening?

Skin brightening is about increasing the glow and look of the skin. Imagine a leaf how looks after rain and before the rain. Skin brightening is for every skin colour tone because people with any skin type can have dull skin or lacks hydration and look too oily or dry. We can get a bright skin tone or glowing skin with a proper diet and correct skincare products like toner, moisturizers formulated with hyaluronic acid, Vitamin C, Niacinamide. Glowing skin can be achieved by following a day and night skincare routine. Exfoliating it from time to time and provide something to control oil and moisture into the skin.
