Can Korean Whitening Products Help Erase Dark Spots? Part 2

Sorry for being offline for a year! I've missed blogging! Thank goodness I was able to come back. So, here was the continuation of the article due last year (hahahaha part 2 came a year late). I have here some of the best Korean brightening or whitening products that help minimize the appearance of dark spots:

Skinfood Rice Wash Off Mask 

Rice is a known skin brightener and skin whitening agent. Rice water has been used by many women in washing their faces for centuries. It is believed to contain nourishing ingredients that can help lighten and even out skin tone.

The Skinfood Rice Wash Off Mask is a multitasking mask that helps diminish the appearance of dark spots by sloughing away dead and discolored skin cells and then nourishing the skin with antioxidants and at the same time repairing the damage of free radicals on the skin.

Klairs Freshly Juiced Vitamin Drop Serum 

One of the best ways to erase dark spots is by applying a vitamin c-enriched skin serum. However, most people with sensitive skin cannot tolerate most serum’s high concentrations. Klairs Freshly Juiced Vitamin Drop Serum, however, is very gentle with only 5% Vitamin C, allowing sensitive skin to get its nourishing benefits minus the irritation. Apart from Vitamin C, it also contains centella Asiatica extract, which has a calming effect on the skin and is effective in reducing inflammation and redness.

Cosrx Galactomyces 95 Whitening Power Essence 

 This whitening essence is one of the most popular part of any korean skin care routine. It contains 95% fermented yeast extract galactomyces, which is known to improve turnover of skin cells, thus brightening the skin faster. This Korean product aims to “brighten” or to erase dark spots, and not whiten the skin.

Mediheal Vita Lightbeam Essential Mask 

The Mediheal Vita Lightbeam Essential Mask is an alcohol-free sheet mask that you apply and leave on the face for 20 minutes, giving you a more moisturized, plump, and brighter skin with less dark spots almost instantly. For optimal results, use the mask for at least two times a week.

Dr. Jart Premium Beauty Balm SPF 45 

BB creams are among the best Korean skin care products ever produced. They provide skin nourishing elements and sun protection and at the same time provide a light coverage that gives your skin a natural-looking, dewy finish.

Vitabrid C12 Face Brightening Powder 

This Vitamin C-rich powder can be turned into a toner, serum, essence or mask. It is so versatile that it allows you to use its brightening prowess in every single step of your Korean 10-Step skin care routine.

Can Korean Whitening Products Help Erase Dark Spots?

Korean actress Kim Tae-hee has the skin we all envy

Dark spots are among the skin’s worst nightmares. They pop up anywhere on your face and can come from sun exposure or even dried up acne.

While there are lots of products that can help lighten your dark spots, these pesky spots usually respond to same ingredients. In terms of erasing unsightly dark spots, the best thing that can happen to your skin is using the best Korean skin whitening products to help lighten your dark marks.

These products are known to have the most potent ingredients that promote shedding of the discolored skin more rapidly and at the same time encouraging the formation of new cells. Some of these products even have additional benefits such as protecting the skin from further damage.

 Exfoliating your skin frequently using gentle chemical exfoliants is recommended. Mild exfoliants like BHA, AHA, lactic acid, and Vitamin C help take off dead skin cells gently, taking any discoloration with them. Some Korean whitening brands even use natural ingredients such as fermented rice wine and fermented yeast extracts which are proven to promote skin cell turnover, stimulating the skin to regenerate.

In addition, Vitamin B3, or Niacinamide, is said to have the same effect and at the same time helps strengthen the skin and fights acne, too. Regardless of what you use to shed your dark spots, it is just the beginning of the battle. You still have to make sure that you use something that will protect your skin from getting damaged or discolored in the first place. Yes, the easiest thing that you can probably do to protect your skin is to use a sunscreen that has at least SPF 30 every day. Exposing your unprotected skin to the sun causes sunspots and makes your initially pesky acne marks darker.

 In addition to sunscreen, daily application of a Vitamin C-rich product also helps protect the skin from getting dark spots. While Vitamin C can help remove dead skin cells, it also has the much-needed antioxidants that help skin regenerate quickly. Vitamin C also has melanin-inhibiting compounds that can make dark spot formation less likely to happen.

Achieving brighter skin can take time. Nevertheless, using the best Korean skin whitening products and ensuring that you do the routine religiously will surely diminish your dark spots and even out the skin tone.

On our next article, we will share a list of our top choices for best Korean skin whitening products that can help erase your dark spots and even out the skin tone.

Stretch marks or striae are linear scars that develop when your skin is stretched out excessively, too quickly. When your skin stretches, this causes damage on the skin’s three layers (epidermis, dermis, and subcutaneous layer). They are common to pregnant women or those who have gained too much weight. Sometimes, teenagers having hormonal surges also develop these unattractive scars.
