It’s safe to say that most women want a radiant, clear and even-toned complexion. After all, who doesn’t love flawless, glowing skin that’s free of blotchiness or dark spots?

But it’s important to note that luminosity is not about having pale or fair skin. Dermatologists will tell you that you are born – and stuck – with your skin tone. You can never go a shade or two fairer than what nature has given you.

What does a brightening beauty product do then? It doesn’t whiten your skin. Instead, it brightens it. How? By smoothing out skin texture, removing hyperpigmentation and plumping up skin so it can better reflect light to give your complexion a luminous glow. The result: you’ll fresher and more youthful.

Here, we break down the latest brightening skincare to give you a gorgeous glow. The best thing about them: they are hydrating and gentle enough for sensitive skin.
