There’s something about bright, glowing skin that just looks healthy, while a dull, dry complexion appears tired and congested. That said, there’s only so much that eight hours of sleep and two litres of water can do for the complexion. You need to know how to brighten skin naturally. Well, there’s good news! If you want to know how to get glowing skin, Vitamin C is your ticket to a bright and radiant complexion.

Glowing Skin: The Best Natural Skin Brightening Ingredients

Widely touted as the best ingredient for skin brightening and a balanced complexion, Vitamin C or Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate (as we use) can help to naturally even the skin tone. Vitamin C works to brighten, not lighten, the skin, and over time works to promote healthy–looking skin, leaving it glowing and radiant. 

Turmeric, pumpkin, carrot, and chia work together with Vitamin C to nourish and resurface the skin, helping to ensure that the skin’s all-important protective barrier isn’t compromised throughout the brightening process. 

Our brightening skincare range harnesses the radiance-boosting powers of both Vitamin C and Turmeric for glowing skin and combines those ingredients with our Fruit Stem Cell science™ to promote a more youthful, even complexion.

Complete your routine with the Luminous Eye Serum and our Purple Carrot + C Luminous Cream. Our skin brightening cream is richly hydrating, making it the perfect option for replenishing the skin’s moisture levels overnight. 

Why not enjoy an even more concentrated dose of Vitamin C with a weekly treatment in the form of our Pumpkin Honey Glycolic Mask? Its nutrient-rich blend of fruit stem cells, organic pumpkin and manuka honey helps to sweep away dull surface cells to reveal brighter, glowing skin beneath.
