To get the clear, smooth skin, a brightening solution can go a long way to help you get the skin you want. 

Skin Brightening is NOT Skin Whitening

It’s important to know the difference between “skin brightening” and “skin whitening”. To some degree, skin brightening makes your skin tone lighter but its purpose is to even out skin tone and texture so the overall complexion becomes brighter and healthier. 

Why Not Use Makeup? 

There are plenty of options that you can choose from. However, makeup is temporary and doesn’t have lasting benefits or results. Plus, heavy makeup can clog pores. Unless the make is removed properly, it worsens the condition of your skin. A skin brightening products helps even skin tone for the brighter glow. 

How Do You Use the Cream? 

Consistency is key. This applies to all skin care products but especially to functional products such as 2HOBA Refresh Cream, 2HOBA Repair Balm, and any retinol products. If the product contains active ingredients such as 2HOBA and vitamins, you have to use them daily for a long period of time in order to see steady results. Alternate between AM and PM but make sure to use them daily.

How Do You Get the Best Results?

  • Use one product at a time. With many options available in the skincare market, it’s tempting to use multiple products at the same time. Remember, too much of anything is bad. Pick one product that works for you and consistently use it for at least a month. The average skin cycle is minimum 21 days. There is no overnight miracle when it comes to skincare, especially products that are meant for brightening and fading dark spots. If your complexion improves, keep using that.
  • If you break out from using a product, stop and let your skin heal first. Sometimes, it’s normal to get breakouts the first few times you use the product. It’s known as “purging”.  However, if purging continues after a week or two, the product might not be compatible with your skin. 
  • Store the product appropriately. Most functional skincare products contain active ingredients. Therefore, they need to be kept in cool and dark places. Leaving them out in the sun or not properly securing the cap can compromise the active ingredients and the products will become less effective.
