Everyone wants brighter, more radiant skin. But in summer, high temperatures, humidity, and UV exposure can result in skin becoming dry, dull, uneven, and sun-damaged. Support healthy skin with a nature-sourced brightening regime and get glowing skin for summer.
How to get brighter skin
Vitamin C fosters a brighter skin tone by helping to inhibit the production of tyrosinase, which is an enzyme that produces melanin – the substance that causes our skin to darken and change colour. As a result, skincare containing Vitamin C targets redness and pigmentation, and reduces dark spots for skin that looks bright and fresh.
Antipodes’ Skin-Brightening range features Vitamin C from Kakadu plum, the world’s richest natural source of the vitamin – the superfruit contains 100 times the Vitamin C of oranges. Kakadu plum extract is clean and gentle, without the potentially irritating side effects of synthetic Vitamin C.
The Skin-Brightening range also features the revolutionary antioxidant compound Vinanza® Grape & Kiwi, made from New Zealand sauvignon blanc grape seeds and the skin of kiwi fruit. The brightening extract works to reveal a more luminous complexion and has been clinically shown* to help improve the appearance of skin by targeting skin redness and pigmentation.
Reveal brighter skin with a Vitamin C cleanser
Exposure to hot weather and powerful UV rays can lead to skin that is dehydrated and flaky, with a feeling of tightness. Summer skin is also more likely to feature a build-up of residue, due to sweat and sunscreen, making blemishes more likely. Gospel Vitamin C Skin-Glow Gel Cleanser is a low-lather gel that cleanses the skin effectively but gently, without stripping vital moisture.
Kakadu plum and Vinanza® Grape & Kiwi work together in Gospel to address dull, lacklustre complexions. The cleanser also features hibiscus bloom, a natural exfoliator to help slough away lifeless skin, promoting a brighter skin tone.
Choose a serum for glowing skin
The second step in your Skin-Brightening regime, Glow Ritual Vitamin C Serum imparts a subtle glow, while providing an intensive dose of Vitamin C from Kakadu plum, to help protect skin from free radical damage caused by summer sun and other everyday pollutants. The serum is scientifically shown to inhibit oxidative stress in-vitro by up to 33%**, so it works to nurture a healthy, glowing complexion. For best results, massage 3-4 drops into the skin after cleansing with Gospel.
Brighten up with an eye cream
Kiwi Seed Gold Luminous Eye Cream features Vinanza® Grape & Kiwi to brighten the under-eye area, improving the appearance of dark circles, while pure 23K gold flakes add a warm, healthy glow, and kiwi seed oil, rich in Vitamin C, softens fine lines. Apply a few dots under each eye and gently pat into the skin.
Make your skin glow with a tone-correcting moisturiser
Diem Vitamin C Pigment-Correcting Water Cream’s has a lightweight texture so it’s perfect for the summer months, while its brightening formula helps correct uneven skin tone.
Diem features Melanostatine™ 5, a powerful peptide that’s been scientifically shown to help target pigmentation. It acts as a melatonin inhibitor, resulting in brighter skin and a more even skin tone, with less discolouration. It unites in Diem with Kakadu plum to reduce redness and dark spots, and improve radiance and skin clarity, for a bright, healthy complexion.
Apply Diem each morning after Glow Ritual serum, following with your SPF.
Freshen your complexion with a face mask
Halo Skin-Brightening Facial Mud Mask encourages glowing skin thanks to mineral-rich geothermal mud from New Zealand, renowned for its ability to enhance the skin tone. Halo also features the antioxidant compound Vinanza® Grape & Kiwi for an extra dose of brightness. Apply a generous layer to cleansed skin once or twice weekly. Leave for 10-15 minutes, rinsing with warm water before the mask sets.
Antipodes’ Skin-Brightening range is certified vegan and suitable for most skin types, especially those with dull or lacklustre skin.
