If you're looking to address dark spots and post-breakout skin discoloration, this was designed with you in mind. Our Brightening Serum is formulated to diminish the appearance of dark spots using the best trio of natural skin brighteners: kojic acid, bearberry, and arbutin. Get ready for a brighter future — yes, we did that on purpose.
*Consistency and lifestyle modifications, like reducing sun and heat exposure, are critical when addressing dark spots. We recommend incorporating Brightening Serum into your existing routine as a powerful booster treatment on top of the Bare Necessities. This product is most effective at diminishing the signs of sun damage when used in conjunction with a daily vitamin C serum like Liquid Gold.
