Q: How simple is brightening my complexion?


A bright and glowy complexion is a dream for many and it’s simpler to achieve than you may think. With a helping hand from our newest bundle, it’s certainly not as difficult as, say, sticking to those New Year’s resolutions!

So let me introduce you to the Bright + Breezy Bundle! Our fan favourite Vitamin C Brightening Serum is joined by our two newest products, Glycolic Acid Daily Toner and Azelaic Acid Balancing Serum. A triple threat, if you will, against dullness, dryness, and discontented skin.

Two new products? Let’s hear a little more about them… Our Glycolic Acid Daily Toner loves a balancing act between hydrating your skin, replenishing moisture after cleansing, and gently exfoliating away dead skin cells, signs of ageing, blemishes & skin congestion, and uneven skin tone. A combination of Glycolic Acid, Hyaluronic Acid and Betaine helps you to hydrate and exfoliate your complexion in just one swipe! And of course, you can use it to help remove any remaining impurities left lingering on your skin. Use as part of your evening regime, slotting this toner in after cleansing and before serum application for an all-round brighter complexion!

On the other hand, our Azelaic Acid Balancing Serum is all about protecting your complexion against bacteria that can upset our skin, causing excess oiliness and blemishes. A one-stop-shop for those with stressed or blemish-prone skin, this serum works to keep your skin appear smooth, even, and clear. We pair Azelaic Acid with Zinc PCA for added pore minimising benefits, plus a Super Grain Extract to help reinvigorate your complexion.

Add our Vitamin C Brightening Serum, which provides plenty of moisture and protection against dull and dry skin, whilst prioritising a youthful glow, and you have the ultimate recipe for a bright complexion. If your skin is on the oilier side, you might like to use the Vitamin C Brightening Serum in place of your moisturiser, keeping things nice and light. The great thing about this product is it’s suitable for all skin types, so it will slot seamlessly into any morning regime - just the way we like it. 

You may notice this bundle contains two serums! For an all-round brighter complexion, we’d recommend using Azelaic Acid Balancing Serum as part of your evening regime, just before moisturising, and Vitamin C Brightening Serum every morning, for that boost of pollution protection.

One primary cause of dullness, as you might remember from our brightening blog, is often dehydration. This could be from a weakened skin barrier that allows more moisture to evaporate throughout the day, leaving our skin feeling dry and tight. It could also be down to a lack of skin lipids (oils) which we need for healthy skin function.

Pollution can also be a culprit for dull skin. Dirt and chemicals in the air, which clog our pores, irritate our skin, and break down our natural skin barrier. Whilst we can’t easily reduce the amount of air pollution we are exposed to, we can protect against it with help from antioxidant ingredients!

Just like wearing an SPF to protect against UV exposure using protective, barrier-forming ingredients is a great way to prevent our skin from looking lacklustre. This not only keeps the undesirable out, but moisture firmly in! The antioxidant properties of both the Azelaic Acid Balancing Serum and Vitamin C Brightening Serum work hard to not only protect against skin damage, while helping repair pre-existing damage too. It’s never too late to start your brightening routine!

Looking to build a full regime dedicated to brightening? Start with a double cleanse, using our Grapefruit Cleansing Balm and Hyaluronic Acid Hydrating Cleanser and follow with a swipe of Glycolic Acid Daily Toner. If your skin needs a treat, decongest your complexion with the Activated Charcoal Face Mask before toning! Follow with our Azelaic Acid Serum and complete your regime with a generous layer of moisturiser. For those with a dry complexion, try our Snow Algae Intensive Moisturiser. If your skin is on the oily side, Zinc PCA Daily Moisturiser is your best bet!

If you’re looking for an easy fix for lacklustre skin, then the search is over. Grab our exclusive Bright + Breezy Bundle for just £20, saving you £6! Bright and healthy glow incoming!
