You Glow, Girl!

Shine, baby, shine with this brightening skincare routine


Everyone needs a brightening product in her daily skincare regimen. According to Dr WS Heng of IDS Clinic, “Even for patients with a darker skin tone, as long as the skin tone is even and glowing, you can look beautiful.” 

He adds that brightening products that contain vitamin C help “regulate pigmentation production and distribution, resulting in a more even skin tone, so they should be used by women who want better and healthier skin”. 

Here’s our recommended brightening program:


Cleanse with L’Occitane Reine Blanche Illuminating Foaming Cleanser, $52.


For an overall even skin tone and clear complexion, apply Diorsnow White Perfection Anti-Spot and Transparency Brightening Serum, from $150.
