For those struggling with pesky dark spots (also known as “sun” or “age” spots) a range of lightening and whitening products are available to help you combat uneven or patchy skin tones. Designed to give you smoother, clearer skin – as well as reduce hyperpigmentation – there are some stand-out products on the market.
Dior’s Prestige White collection is one such offering, taking inspiration from a rare rose that grows on the cliffs of Normandy in France. Two noteworthy products are the Light-In-Lotion – a gentle rose micro-peel that maximises the light-scattering powers of the skin’s surface – and the Light-InNectar, a deep light-activating serum that lifts the skin’s natural barriers to light circulation and helps renew skin transparency. Another brand to address your needs is Clarins. The White Plus range has been specially designed for Asian skin tones. Containing acerola fruit extract from Brazil, the range comprises of six powerful products that help lighten skin pigmentation and reduce dark spots.

Iconic beauty house Clé de Peau Beauté has recently launched its Brightening Collection, which aims to even skintone and reduce dullness. A standout product is the serum, which contains Illuminating Complex EX and increases skin’s clarity and radiance.
If you’re looking for a comprehensive skincare regime, then MTM’s Re-White range has got you covered. Its custom-blended trio of products are designed to work together and create a bright and flawless complexion. Using their years of expertise (the company was founded in 1851) Kiehl’s’ chemists have formulated the Clearly Corrective Brightening and Smoothing Moisture Treatment. Designed to brighten, refine and smooth skin, the treatment targets loss of clarity through two ingredients, glycolic acid and “Activated C.”
AmorePacific’s Luminous Effect Brightening Cream harnesses the goodness of Asian flora and herbs. Derived from fermented green tea, which boosts luminosity, the cream is anti-ageing and helps diminish hyperpigmentation and uneven skintone.
