skin whitening treatments

For busy moms, the art of highlighting and contouring as tools to illuminate the complexion might not be the most time-saving beauty solution. Skin whitening treatments that are one-step solutions for that dewy brighter glow allow moms on the go to channel that dewy and vibrant beauty look without breaking out numerous brushes and products.

When we talk about lightening, however, this is not about chemicals and dyes to tarnish and punish the skin. The right beauty products for a gorgeous glow do not include bleach, harsh additives, dyes or chemicals. Being beautiful inside and out requires treating the skin with naturally beneficial beauty products.

Face Oils

You’ve probably heard coconut oil and argan oil touted as miracle ingredients for wrinkles and skin hydration. While no product can permanently take away wrinkles—yes, that includes oils—coconut oil and argan oil are amazing hydrators for the skin. The oils also create a vibrant dewiness when mixed with foundation that leaves the skin glowing.

Oils won’t lighten your skin shade, but they will reflect light to create a glowing complexion. With oils, though, a little goes a long way. For argan oil, apply about two drops onto your finger and swipe on the cheekbones, dot on the nose, the chin and forehead.

Coconut oil is solid at room temperature, so application can be a little trickier. Dab your finger into the jar and rub the oil between your two index fingers. Then apply on the areas of the face where you would like to highlight. Cheekbones, the top of the nose and the chin are ideal for highlights.

Highlighter Sticks

Many cosmetics companies offer highlighting products that can be applied like a concealer. Highlighting products that are in bullet form (like a lipstick) are the best option. These products twist up to let you swipe on the right amount of product. Most of these highlighting sticks have pigment that has an almost prismatic glow.  When the light hits areas where the product has been applied, your face will have an amazing pop of illumination.

Toners & Serums

Some skin whiteners may reduce the appearance of dark spots and also may improve skin tone. One of our skin brightening serums is applied at night and in the morning to help brighten the complexion. However, serums and toners often take several weeks for skin to show improvement…so don’t feel frustrated if that glow doesn’t appear overnight. Pregnant and breastfeeding moms should talk to their doctor before using any new treatment.

Powerful Powders

Highlighting powders are easy to apply and give a similar glow as the stick. Many powders also add a setting layer to foundation, allowing it to last longer. Just dab your pouf in the powder and apply to the cheekbones. Many of these products are offered in a variety of illuminating shades—yes, there are even unicorn-inspired rainbow highlighters.

There are many quick and easy options for busy moms to use for dewy, light-infused skin whitening beauty. Illuminated products are available in sticks to easily swipe the face with a glow, and powders also help set foundation while adding light-infused dimension. For skin that demands a little more care and treatment, try toners and serums that may help decrease the look of dark spots while brightening the skin. A healthy glow doesn’t have to take hours out of the morning, and most busy moms can achieve a brighter complexion in minutes!

Written by Dr. Steven Rosen
Many great inventions and discoveries in the world were unintentional or just plain accidents. The story you are about to read concerning a breakthrough in the cosmetics field relates another great accidental discovery. In 1985, in an office in South Florida, Dr. Steven Rosen, a dentist at that time was working on a patient. The patient was a private investigator. Medication was given to the patient to alleviate the pain associated with his treatment. Two days later, the patient noticed a dramatic improvement not only in the pain level, but in his skin as well. His face, which was full of razor bumps, had cleared up! The man couldn't wait to tell the dentist what had happened. He called the dentist on the phone. He asked the dentist what he was doing to him. The dentist was worried and asked what he was talking about. He told the dentist that something the dentist was doing was clearing up his razor bumps. He told the dentist that since he started shaving 15 years earlier, he had tried everything available for razor bumps and nothing had worked until now. The investigator began to tell the dentist how important this discovery was. He mentioned that the dozens of products already on the market did not come close to producing the dramatic results he had achieved. He also said that this was a big problem in the military where a clean shave was required or you would have to get a shaving clearance from the dermatologist. Lawsuits had been filed in industry by workers who were fired because they were unable to get a clean shave for example where gas mask use was required Police must have clean shaves and so on. The dentist realized the importance of this discovery and determined which ingredient in the medication was improving the skin. Realizing that the ingredient could not be taken internally for long periods of time, the two men experimented with the formula in an attempt to apply it directly to the skin. It worked. It then took nine long years work to create a workable product and learn how to reach the market. . The dentist had a great discovery. Other uses for the formula arose in the same "chance" way that the formula was discovered. Women who bought the product for their husbands or boyfriends started trying it on ingrown hair problem they had from shaving, waxing, and having electrolysis on their legs, bikini lines, and underarms. Not only did they report to the dentist that the ingrown hair problems had cleared, but that the formula worked as an excellent underarm deodorant. And the rest is history……… Thank you for letting us tell our story. We hope you enjoyed it.
