My little snippet of my current brightening skincare routine, 


Curious on how to achieve blemish-free and a brighter complexion for your skin? Simply keep on reading...

The beauty trend of having brighter and clearer white skin all started from the Korean beauty world. As a fan of Korean drama and movies, I've always wondered why the Koreans usually have clear and white complexion skin. That's why we have noticed that South Korea have been growing rapidly in the skincare industry with the major brands.

Apparently, they have like these ten-steps regime for their skincare routine which is insane! But hey the skincare regime works for them and that's why their complexion always looks clear, glowing and healthy. Whitening of the skin has always been a trend in Asia and - so what it specifically concentrates on is trying to get rid of any dark spots and pigmentation so that your skin is left looking healthy and more youthful. 

But now you can look to achieve this global skincare phenomenon by using just three of the below suggested products that can be found in the Australian market. 

See the below for the products that I have been using as part of my Brightening Skincare Routine: 

So we have the (L:R) Elemis White Brightening Even Tone Cleanser, Antipodes Apostle Skin-Brightening Serum and the Antipodes Juliet Skin Brightening Gel Cleanser. 

In order to achieve a brighter skin complexion, ensure that you follow a simple skincare routine using products that are made for skin brightening purposes. That way, with more gradual uses of the products, you will find that it can help to improve your complexion by making it look so much healthier. 

And to give you a little insight about each of the three products as mentioned, see the below: 
  • STEP 1 - ANTIPODES, JULIET SKIN-BRIGHTENING GEL CLEANSER - RRP $33.00 -  This gel based type of cleanser is infused with Kiwifruit, Manuka Honey, Active 20+ and antioxidant Vinanza Performance Plus which really makes it a high performance cleaner to use for the skin if you're looking for the brighter skin results. The cleanser is made suitable for those with normal to oily combination skin. It really helps to clear the skin as it contains exfoliating extracts from the kiwi superfruit and it has antibacterial powers from the Manuka honey too. It helps with reducing the balance of oil production, hence assisting your skin in giving you the healthiest glow ever. The cleanser is lightly scented with green apple and cardamon which smells sweet, pleasant and amazing. 
  • STEP 2 - ELEMIS, WHITE BRIGHTENING EVEN TONE CLEANSER - RRP $95.00 - What's also amazing about this product is that it's made for anti-ageing purposes too which means that it helps to tone out and reduce the appearance of skin discolouration and age spots. The gentle foaming cleanser looks to also clean out any impurities, dirt and especially oil on the skin. It helps to curb any excess oil and leaves a mattified complexion for your skin. The formula includes a unique complex of daisy, Vitamin C, sophora and kiwi extracts which helps to reduce further age spots. With daily use of this cleanser, you'll find that it will make your skin appearance much smoother, brighter and illuminated. When using this cleanser, you'd use 2-3 pumps and massage it gently over wet skin. Next, look to rinse thoroughly with water.
  • STEP 3 - ANTIPODES, APOSTLE SKIN BRIGHTENING SERUM - RRP $58.99 - So after all of that cleansing, you're going to need a type of serum that can lock in the moisture and restore the moisture back to your skin. This serum is made for all skin types including those with sensitive type of skin. It's a water based serum so that means it's easy to use on the skin and easily absorbs. It contains Waiwera artesian water, antioxidant Vinanza Oxidend (from pinot noir grapes) and mamaku black fern. When used regularly, you will notice that this product aims to boost cell renewal for a fresher and clearer complexion. After cleansing the face, I would apply the serum all over my face, neck and d├ęcolletage at night before you apply on your evening moisturiser.
