Our Dark Spot Corrector is designed to be used either as a spot treatment or an all-over serum. Our Spot-Targeting Complex™ targets only excess melanin so it won’t lighten your overall skin tone if you do use it all over your face.
Definitely! The Brightening Turmeric + C Enlighten Serum is a great all-over brightener serum while the Brightening Dark Spot Corrector can be used as needed to target dark spots and areas where you might need a little extra brightening.
Ethyl Ascorbic Acid is one of the most stable and more tolerable forms of Vitamin C. If you haven’t been able to tolerate high-strength vitamin C in the past, you will find that the Ethyl Ascorbic Acid in our Dark Spot Corrector is a better option for your skin. In short, Ethyl Ascorbic Acid has all the same benefits of vitamin C derivates such as L-Ascorbic Acid, Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate, and Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate, helping to support collagen production, improve hyperpigmentation and uneven skin tone, and providing antioxidant protection against free radicals, but is generally found to be more stable and more tolerable.
Not necessarily. While many forms of Vitamin C are more potent in higher percentages, they have also been shown to have a higher risk of irritation when used at higher levels. The specific Vitamin C used in our Brightening Dark Spot Corrector, Ethyl Ascorbic Acid, can be used in levels below 10% with as much powerful of results due its amazing stability.
Vitamin C is a great brightening ingredient to help dark spots and hyperpigmentation for all skin types because it will target excess pigmentation without lightening the skin tone overall, unlike bleaching ingredients such as hydroquinone.
You can use the Brightening Dark Spot Corrector during the day or at night, depending on your routine. One of the great things about Vitamin C is that it can help defend against free radicals from the sun, so using it during the day can help prevent sun damage.
