Have you ever noticed that most skin brightening night creams don’t do much for you other than brighten your skin? They may contain some minor effect, such as a slight increase in melatonin. Melatonin is an essential hormone, produced by the pineal gland, and its production is critical to human sleep and other important functions. However, taking a supplement does not alter the amount produced, so it’s basically a placebo.
If you have tried using skin brightening night creams and supplements without success, don’t feel discouraged – it’s definitely not the end of the world. It’s just that the skin brightening cream or supplement you are using doesn’t contain enough of the ingredient(s) it should have to be effective. This means you may not see any positive results, at all. When looking for a night cream to brighten your skin, you should make sure to choose one containing ingredients that have proven to be effective, safe, natural substances. Look also for one with “astringent” properties – this means that it reduces inflammation, relieving skin redness and irritation. This is very useful when treating acne, because it reduces the redness, swelling and pain associated with it.
The best skin brightening night cream will also contain ingredients that stimulate renewal and collagen production. These can be beneficial treatments for aging skin, too. New skin cells that grow and replace the ones that are lost due to age will make your skin look younger. Collagen plays a vital role in keeping the skin firm and supple. But, like anything else, collagen can be destroyed by environmental irritants. An eye brightening night cream should contain substances that prevent and reduce wrinkling.
You’ve probably noticed that most night creams brighten only those areas of the face that are often irritated – like the eyes, nose and chin. But what if you also had dark circles? A good skin brightening cream should not just treat current signs of aging. They should also improve dark circles, because these are symptoms of thinning skin. In fact, if there’s one thing that looks old and sags in an aging face, it’s dark circles.
Some dark circles are caused by blood vessels drying up. Others are caused by capillary fragility, the tendency of blood vessels to leak. Still others are caused by hemoglobin breakdown, a condition that occurs when the skin loses its natural color. And whatever the cause, what’s important is that skin brightening products get to the root of the problem, to repair and rejuvenate skin that’s been damaged and dried out due to environmental factors and other causes.
Effective skin brightening night creams will contain ingredients that restore skin tone and color to the natural beauty of young skin, without excessive damage. It should also be able to reduce the appearance of dark circles and wrinkles, because it brightens and firms skin by revitalizing skin cells. In short, it brightens skin, reduces dark circles, and improves overall skin health. This is a skin brightening cream that every woman should have in her arsenal!
