As days pass, you will realise the branded handbags, makeup products, clothing-to-die-for that you have invested in do no good when you have dull complexion. Your complexion is the most important thing to take care of right now!
Our skin produces melanin to protect deeper layers of the skin from harmful effects of the sun and it will be metabolised afterwards. However, slow or poor metabolism causes melanin to accumulate, resulting in pigmentation. The very first rescue that comes to your mind- skin brightening products. These products can be found everywhere in the market, ranging from affordable to high-end ones. However, to effectively remove dark spots and skin pigmentation, it is essential for skin products to penetrate into the deeper layers of the skin. Can your skin brightening products do that?
For a brighter skin, application of skin products as well as consuming skin-loving nutrients are keys to a healthier and prettier you! Sufficient vitamin C is needed to inhibit melanin production from the basal layer of dermis, giving your skin the glow from inside out. Fruits and vegetables rich in vitamin C include cherries, kiwi, strawberries, tomatoes, oranges, guava, etc. As vitamin C is a water-soluble vitamin, its nutrients can be easily lost and degraded. Hence, adequate intake of vitamin C is crucial because insufficient intake does not guarantee its beautifying effect. Vitamin C supplements is recommended for whitening effect over the time with 1000-3000mg dose daily.

Protect Yourself from the Sun
Living in a tropical country like Malaysia, we are blessed with ample sunshine! However, exposure to excessive sunlight can destroy our skin, accelerating ageing and even lead to formation of melanin and wrinkles! Hence, application of sunscreen during outings is essential. The sun is not entirely harmful though. Letting the sun shine on you for 15-30 minutes (before 10am) is actually beneficial for you as sunlight stimulates the skin to produce vitamin D, which in turn enhances the absorption of calcium. It is recommended to choose sunscreens ranging from SPF15 to SPF25 with hardworking application on and off every few hours if you would be outdoor for long hours. Don’t underestimate this small gesture, it helps the skin to avoid damage from UV and prevents skin ageing!
So ladies, being beautiful is not just on the outside!
