This hydrating cream will work to reduce pigmentation with consistent use. The skin lightening agents work by inhibiting melanin, which gives skin it's color. When we produce too much melanin we can get hyperpigmentation, or sun spots. Skin lighteners shut down the pathway by which your skin makes melanin which, over time, can lead to more even skin tone and reduction of pigmented spots. Lighten Up also increases the hydration in the skin and keeps it there with the addition of beeswax, which forms an occlusive layer on the skin. Use twice daily for best results, after cleansing, toning and oil application.
