1- Use a Rumex extract which is taken from a plant called Rumex occidentalis that grows in the northern Canadian Prairies region. This special extract has a strong inhibitory effect on tyrosinase, which is involved in the pigmentation process. It also reduces the skin pigmentation and give you a uniformed and lighter skin complexion.

For best exfoliation, you can use a mechanical exfoliator (scrubs) and a natural exfoliator like fruit enzymes and natural fruit acids. These all together will provide an immediate lighter and brighter skin appearance and it won’t damage the skin’s melanin producing cells.
2- Second, in addition to exfoliation, you can use a skin lightening product in addition to the exfoliation, the ideal one will inhibit melanin pigment in epidermal cells. It must contain bellis perennis extract, uva ursi extract (natural arbutin), lemon peel bioferment, magnesium ascorbyl phosphate (stable vitamin C), niacinamide (vitamin B3), licorice root extract, glucosamine, ferula foetida extract, and boerhaavia diffusa extract.
