What are skin brightening products?

Skin brightening products target discoloration caused by sun damage, acne, and inflammation. They do not change the color of your skin: rather, they lessen dark spots. These spots form when your skin's regular production of melanin is increased, normally through UV exposure. Skin brightening products are great to use on a daily basis and, depending on the formula, can provide additional benefits such as increasing cell turnover.
