Natural ways to brighten your skin

12:00AM, Nov 14 2011

Say goodbye to pasty winter skin and get your glow on this summer with these natural skin brightening tricks.

Swap your products
Swap your medicated cleanser for a soothing formula with soy. The moisture-rich ingredient will improve skin texture, even out blotchiness and help to lighten dark spots! We love Aveeno Positively Radiant Cleanser, $13.99

Exfoliate
A gentle scrub twice a week will buff away the dead cells that make skin look drab. Try to avoid products with seeds or shells (which can damage delicate skin) and look for those that contain natural exfoliants like Vitamin E beads or lemon extract — a known brightness booster. Bonus points if you get one with salicylic acid, which is great for preventing black heads and pimple-producing blockages. We love Clean & Clear Morning Burst Facial Scrub, $10.99.

Tinted Moisturiser
Mixed with a liquid luminiser, tinted moisturiser will draw light to your skin, giving you a natural radiance all day long! Look out for one that contains SPF, as this will also keep your skin protected from the sun. We love Aveeno Positively Radiant Tinted Moisturiser, $22.99.
