Have you ever wanted to visibly brighten dark marks and hyperpigmentation on your face (or body)? Sure, there are a lot of expensive procedures you can do, but what if your solution cost less than $20?
Bolden Skin Brightening Toner, $19.49
If you don’t know about Bolden skin care, you should! It is a Black, female-founded brand “on a mission to embolden women around the world by celebrating their natural beauty.” The brand tackles women of color’s unmet needs in beauty, and the founders use the best ingredients to create effective formulations for different skin concerns.
This skin-brightening toner, in particular, gently exfoliates and brightens dark spots with the use of glycolic acid. Great for those dealing with hyperpigmentation, this toner has ingredients like licorice root and algae extract. Both improve the appearance of dark spots, uneven skin tone and hyperpigmentation.
You may notice a few immediate results after the first few uses. However, to really get the full benefit of this toner, you should use it consistently over a period of weeks. Now, it’s important to be mindful of your skin during this time. If you notice your skin is breaking out or appearing red and inflamed, you may want to limit how often you use the toner and restore the skin’s barrier with a hydrating moisturizer.
