Best Beauty Buys is The Singapore Women’s Weekly’s annual round up of the best and most effective products currently on the shelves. This year, we spotlight the skincare and makeup needs of busy mums who juggle children and demanding jobs who want to look and feel good doing it. The products were road-tested by a group of such multi-tasking women, and these are their picks.
Whether it is a result of sun damage accumulated through the years or post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation from acne and breakouts, dark spots and hyperpigmentation are a pain to deal with. These bunches of melanin pigment require both the right products and patience to lighten or have them disappear altogether.
Fortunately, the skincare market has found a plethora of active ingredients that can target hyperpigmentation, ranging from vitamin B3, or niacinamide and vitamin C to acids such as glycolic and lactic acid. And as the name implies, the following brightening serums are concentrated cocktails of these actives that you can incorporate into your skincare routine right now to combat these pesky blemishes.
