4. SkinCeuticals Discoloration Defense

SkinCeuticals’s latest product is backed by the brand’s research in Tranexamic acid, an actual medication which is sometimes administered orally to fight discoloration and brighten skin tone. SkinCeuticals’s extensive research has allowed them to condense all the benefits of Trenexamic acid into a corrective and preventive serum suitable for long-term daily usage!

In fact, a 12-week clinical testing on 50 subjects has revealed an impressive 80% improvement for a subject with acne dark spots! Although results may vary, you are likely to receive more bang for your buck with this product.

5. Albion Super UV Cut Protect Day Cream

Apart from providing SPF 50+ PA ++++ sun protection, this day cream doubles up as an anti-aging product as it stimulates collagen protection in the skin dermis! On top of preventing UV damage, the cream contains HSP47 (Heat Shock Protein 47) which also slows down your skin’s aging process.

HSP47 are actually special proteins produced by the body to defend the body against heat, UV rays, free radicals and other aggressors. HSP47 is essential for the production of skin collagen, but our body’s production of HSP47 declines with age.

Slow down your skin’s aging process and prevent UV damage with Albion super UV cut protect day cream, available at SGD167 at Albion counters at Takashimaya, Metro Centrepoint and Robinsons Raffles City.
