The Best Night Cream For Skin Brightening, Pigmentation And Fairness

I have compiled 10 of The Best Night Cream For Skin Brightening, Pigmentation And Fairness here in this article. Over the counter (OTC) night cream and Dermatologist recommended Cream are also included.Please note that i have not included many noted products as their ingredient list was not available. There is a product for every Skin type.

See, The 10 Best Dermatologist Recommended Safe Skin Lightening And Brightening Creams

Please keep in mind that these Night creams take up to 45 days for you to see visible results. There aren’t any ‘Miracle product’ in the list.

  • I have not mentioned any Hydroquinone and Steroid based products. You should not use these ingredient based creams without a dermatologist’s advise as you may end up ruining your skin.

I have also given the Ingredient Analysis of each product so that you can see why i recommend these products. Costly products doesn’t mean it will work. So choose one that suits your skin.

  • Please use a sunscreen to prevent your skin from darkening further and as an anti ageing precaution.
  • Protecting your skin is important while using brightening, lightening or anti ageing creams, Hence please use a sunscreen that suits your skin type.

None of the skin brightening and anti ageing skin care routines would be complete without Sunscreen. I would say, none of the creams however costly it may be, It will not work. You may end up with damaged, dull and darker skin. 🙁
