Brighten Face: Kojic Acid Routine | Belo Medical Group

This Face-Brightening Routine Uses Kojic Acid!

By Ysabel Vitangcol on August 24, 2020

Kojic acid is an ingredient familiar to many—like glutathione and papaya soap, it’s made its merry way into drugstore and supermarket aisles, the new kid on the block turned prom queen. But don’t mistake its wide availability for inefficiency—kojic acid is one of the most powerful lightening agents in skincare. That’s why it’s the star of our all-new Belo Face Brightening Kit! This four-step lightening routine is only P3,555—can you believe it? Say bye-bye to expensive laser treatments!

Everyone’s got pigmentation of some kind. Whether it’s from 2019 afternoons at the beach or from a quarantine-related acne breakout, you’re bound to have some dark spots you’d rather not contend with. This kit is the perfect starter pack for those with mild to moderate skin pigmentation, and it’s so easy to use:

1. Cleanse and prepare

First things first—cleanse! Use the Belo Prescriptives Kojic Acid Face Wash to rid your skin of impurities and kickstart the lightening process. Its active ingredient, kojic acid, inhibits the formation of tyrosine. Tyrosine is an amino acid that your body needs to produce melanin (a.k.a. unwanted pigmentation!). By stopping the production of tyrosine, you can lighten your skin. 

2. Lighten and even out

Next up, dab a generous amount of Belo Prescriptives Tyrosinase Inhibitor to the face. Tyrosinase might sound a lot like tyrosine, but this time, what we’re talking about is an enzyme that uses tyrosine to catalyze the production of melanin. So by inhibiting both tyrosine and tyrosinase, we’re being pretty thorough, right? And if that’s not enough, the Tyrosinase Inhibitor cream also contains the brightening agents Vitamin C, arbutin, and even more kojic acid, just for good measure!

Once you’ve given that a minute to dry, you can go in with your Belo Kojic Acid Cream. Yep, more kojic acid! We’re slathering on all the brightening agents our skin can take, for maximum results!

3. Protect and prevent

Finally, so that our hard work doesn’t go to waste, we need a layer of protection in the AM. Your last step in the morning is to apply Belo Sunscreen Gel. This isn’t your ordinary sunscreen—our sunscreen gel is formulated with Uvinul®, which not only protects your skin from UV rays, but also provides outstanding protection from free radicals. It’s ultra-lightweight, so you can apply your base makeup afterwards without feeling heavy. And don’t worry—you won’t run out of sun protection quickly, because our Face Brightening Kit comes with two 20g tubes of the good stuff.

Do this routine every morning and night, and you’ll see results in just a few weeks! It’s the perfect way to begin your quarantine glowup, so that when you emerge, you’ll be as beautiful as a butterfly!
