If you have hyperpigmentation, AKA uneven skin tone and brown spots, then you definitely want to check out Osmotics Lighten FX ($68). Ever since I had my daughter 10 years ago I have been prone to small brown patches that seem to pop up out of nowhere…although I have to admit I also probably don’t reapply sunscreen often enough and that sure doesn’t help. I was hopeful when Osmotics sent this lightening and brightening serum to try and it has impressed the heck out of me.
Issues with skin pigmentation are caused by either too much or too little melanin. Typically, problems with melanin production are thanks to either sun exposure or hormones. Put them both together and it’s double trouble! Osmotics Lighten FX has proven ingredients that truly work to even out skin tone and get rid of brown patches. I had a rather significant one on my forehead and using this serum at night was working. Once I started using it both morning and night that patch disappeared within two weeks.
The effective ingredients include Dimethylmethoxyl Chromanyl Palmitate for brightening skin tone and protecting skin damage from UV radiation. Alpha Arbutin slows down melanin production thanks to its hydroquinone content, which helps prevent future discoloration. The third super effective ingredient is Niacinamide. This superstar is vitamin B3 and nicotinic acid, an anti-aging cell-communicating ingredient. It firms skin, improves texture, and eliminates discoloration. It’s a fantastic moisturizer that also plumps skin and it even helps eliminate acne and redness that blemishes can leave behind. If you have both wrinkles and acne, this is the ingredient you need!
Don’t limit the use to your face as this will work on hands, neck, decolletage…anywhere you have hyperpigmentation issues. And the packaging is fantastic. The ingredients don’t need protection from heat and light to keep the products efficacy, so the see-through airless pump is fabulous and shows exactly how much product is left.
Osmotics Lighten FX is a total winner. This is the solution for all your hyperpigmentation issues! - Lisa
