No matter how much Hollywood celebrities boast their beautifully tanned skin and stores overflow with sensational tanning items, K-Beauty still worships the brightening skin types and makeup methods. Since K-beauty is all about brightening makeup, there must be diverse methods developed for maintaining milky-white skin, right? Today we will share tips helpful for whitening our skin.
Are you wondering what you should choose between diverse whitening products and numerous dermatologist treatments? But if the essential basic principles are not practiced, all the costs and time for your skin would be to no avail.
The basic principles are simple: drinking more than 8 cups of water a day and making sure to apply sunscreen. It is also important to use moisturizing products for thorough hydration of your skin. All these are to prevent dryness, the worst enemy of our skin, and to prevent blemishes from forming. If you disregard guarding against UV rays, you would regret it later on. Applying sunscreen is listed on numerous celebrities’ must-do beauty habits, and we advise you to do so likewise!
Diet habits are also very important as well. Taking in vitamin C through green vegetables like paprika or broccoli and fruits like strawberry or apple would be part of it. If you are too busy to track your diet, try taking nutritional supplements or supplementary health food to complement your diet with vitamins.
Cleansing everyday thoroughly and exfoliating regularly 1-2 times a week are also the beauty secrets of celebrities. Melanin pigment increases when you are tired so sleeping enough and sleeping during the time when cells are regenerated, from 10pm to 2am, helps too.
In fact, it is hard to maintain skin condition permanently. If you want to maintain your skin condition well enough while it changes according to your body condition or ageing, sticking to basic habits would be the minimum.
Still, these basic habits are not enough: helpful treatments are required for defending fair skin!
Less than 30% of the people visiting clinics know what treatments are necessary for their skin. According to your pigment depths, different combinations of treatments would be needed, so it is important to start treatments after knowing your skin state through skin diagnostic devices.
The biggest enemies against whitening, such as chloasma, freckles, and facial flushing, etc. many times require medical treatments. Whitening products have their limits. To effectively solve complex pigment troubles, methods such as laser toning/ND-YAG/skin-lightening care can be used. If your skin is sensitive or dry, water-shine injection can be added.

Last words to emphasize: popular treatments wouldn’t necessarily be appropriate for you, and that sticking with only one type of treatment for long wouldn’t be desirable. Since treatments have to change to match your skin state, it is not recommendable to go for a treatment just because some clinics provide popular treatment package. Don’t be fooled by them!
Trained dermatologists select different devices according to individual's skin conditions and the causes of pigmentation. It is important to choose a clinic that has a high level of understanding of patients coming from abroad. But preference for lightened skin is a matter of individual preference, and it is best to achieve a healthy skin condition that fits your mind and body.
