Bright Now: Brightening Systems That Deliver
Lately our BG Beauty Girls have been pondering the tell-tale signs of maturing skin. While zig-zagging lines, between-the-brows 11’s, and crepey creases are definite markers of fleeting youth, lately, we’ve noticed a shift — suddenly we’re also concerned with skin’s overall brilliance. Ruddy, dull, lackluster skin makes us feel, well, not so youthful. So it is decided: Bright, clear, even-toned complexion is the ultimate indication of skin in its prime.
The goods that guarantee an enviable glow. . .
THE BRIGHT STUFF: Natural sugar cane and pomegranate extract to brighten and balance skin’s tone. Antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties to calm.
If organic tops your list of skin care criteria, Tata Harper Resurfacing Masque is a wise choice. The Beta-hydroxy rich mask resurfaces and brightens the skin with natural ingredients. In total, the masque contains eleven active ingredients that work collectively to deliver immediate radiance, after a 20-minute application — proving that “natural” can also be effective.
THE BRIGHT STUFF: White Willow for even tone. Pomegranate enzymes to refine pores. Balsam de Peru to soothe. Pink French Clay to cleanse and remove sebum. Beet root extract and lemongrass to moisturize and nourish.
3. Le Metier de Beaute’s CHEM60 Pro-Peel & GLOW10ai Mask Set
Fast track your glow. In as little as 60-seconds, step one of the dynamic duo penetrates deeply to quickly remove layers of dead skin cells, cleanse pores, and reveal smoother, more radiant skin. The second step — a gratifying peel-off mask (oh, we just love a good peel-off mask) — helps to hydrate, replenish, and revive skin’s youthfulness. The combination really is quite brilliant…pun intended!
THE BRIGHT STUFF: Salicylic and Glycolic acids to exfoliate and brighten. Antioxidants, vitamins, and hydrators to fortify skin and renew the appearance.
4. Amore Pacific Luminous Effect Brightening Masque
We have to admit…this one looked a little scary at first. It’s an actual “mask”, made of microfiber material that adheres to facial contours. The scariness of it all is actually the beauty of the efficacy — the finely woven mask envelopes skin and maximizes the delivery of supercharged brightening ingredients. Not only does Amore Pacific Luminous Effect Brightening Masque banish existing brown spots and hyperpigmentation, the unique formulation also inhibits uneven complexion from returning. Prepare for loads of compliments!
THE BRIGHT STUFF: Meladefying Complex™, a blend of Asian botanicals, including Milk Thistle, Ginkgo Leaf, Orange Peel, Magnolia and Lonicera Japonica. All work synergistically to inhibit excessive melanin formation, target existing melasma, and reveal a clearer, more translucent complexion.
