Does your skin need a little pick me up? Brightening facial masks can help with dark spots, hyperpigmentation, dryness, and dullness. It’s time to come out of hiding from the cold winter months and give your skin a fresh radiant glow!

Even if you don’t spend a lot of time in the sun and wear sunscreen, most of us have pesky sun spots or spots of hyperpigmentation caused by inflammation, skin injuries, and acne. The ingredients in brightening masks help to even out the skin tone, fade discoloration and give your skin a boost!

My skin is glowing. I have searched for years for a non harmful lightening brightening serum to eliminate dark marks and pores and skin pigs. Appearance no in addition, Dermalmd lightening brightening Serum is so light on my oily skin... I've received compliments and a little goes a long way.
