Prestige beauty brands from Chanel to La Prairie are focused on a new kind of aging antidote that will give you brighter, glowing skin just in time for summer. A bevy of new brightening products has just hit Saks Fifth Avenue and their aim is to minimize hyperpigmentation (freckles, sun spots), discoloration (dark imperfections) and fine lines, while hydrating the skin and give it a nice lift, to boot.
When coupled with a BB cream, a brightening lotion can erase the signs of aging caused by UV, pollution damage and cellular breakdown revealing the luminous, youthful skin you’ve been longing for.
Here are a few of our favorites:
White Caviar is a powerful anti-pigmentation formula which works by interrupting the cycle that creates age spots and discoloration, leading to a clearer, more even-toned complexion. It also works to enhance moisture retention and firms, nourishes and energizes the skin with golden caviar extracts.
There’s power in three’s and Estee Lauder has harnessed that power in the new Idealist Even Skintone Illuminator. Scientists have unlocked the Triple Optic Technologies – soft focus, color correcting and brightening – to smooth and blur the look of imperfections, neutralizing the look of redness and discoloration and increasing surface reflection.
This serum has got you covered. Wild Ginger Extract and Multi-target Vitamin C work to erase existing hyperpigmentation and prevent future damage while Olive Leaf Extract and L-Arginine take your skin from dull to luminous and Vitamin E Acetate and Horse Chestnut improve microcirculation by strengthening blood vessels.
Who knew orchids could be used as weapons? In Guerlain’s Orchidee Imperiale White Serum Orchid Extract prevents melanin from maturing and darkening, stimulates cells back to a youthful state and controls the skin’s optical properties improving skin’s translucency and surface luminosity.
A fast-acting serum that evens skin tone and diminishes dark spots to impart overall radiance and luminosity to the skin.
