Glutathione injection is an effective way of lightening your skin tone and removing dark spots. It also improves the texture of your skin and boosts immunity.
It clears toxins and free radicals that cause hyperpigmentation, age spots, dark circles, acne, and melasma. It deactivates the tyrosinase enzyme that promotes melanin production, giving you brighter and lighter skin.
The skin is a vital organ that plays a crucial role in protecting us against disease and infection. However, with time, the body produces toxins and free radicals that can damage and cause skin pigmentation and dullness. These factors also lead to premature aging of the skin that can leave you with blemishes and dark spots. Glutathione is a powerful antioxidant that can help you achieve younger looking and radiant skin.
It is found naturally in the liver and combines three amino acids—cysteine, glutamic acid, and glycine. Studies show that glutathione is a powerful antioxidant with anti-aging and immune-boosting properties. It also has antimelanogenic properties, which is the ability to reduce or prevent skin pigmentation.
It is a potent natural antioxidant that is able to inhibit the enzyme tyrosinase, which is responsible for melanin production. It is a safe and effective method for skin lightening because it is absorbed directly into the bloodstream, bypassing the digestive process.
Vitamin C is a nutrient that improves skin elasticity and brightens dull skin. It also offers protection against UV rays and free radical damage that causes wrinkles.
Vitamins bind to free radicals and act like little Pac-Men, taking them out of circulation so they can’t do any damage. This includes free radicals caused by sun or tobacco smoke exposure.
A topical application of vitamin C, which can be in the form of an ointment, cream or serum, lightens the appearance of dark spots and brightens skin for a fresh, youthful glow. It can also fade hyperpigmentation by inhibiting tyrosinase, an enzyme that helps produce melanin. However, it will not fade normal dark skin pigmentation (melanin), but rather hyperpigmentation caused by excess sun exposure.
Vitamin B3, also known as niacin, is an essential water-soluble vitamin that is part of the B complex family. It is converted inside the body to nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD), a coenzyme that plays a role in cellular energy production. It is a natural antioxidant that helps fight against free radicals. It reduces hyperpigmentation, dark spots, wrinkles and uneven skin tone and prevents acne breakouts. It also minimizes damage to the colon in people with ulcerative colitis and is used to treat psoriasis.
Here at Byrdie HQ, we love this multitasking ingredient. Niacinamide helps boost hydration by supporting water retention in the skin, which in turn can help with oily skin and clogged pores. It also helps improve the barrier function by stimulating the synthesis of ceramides. It can also mitigate certain manifestations of sun damage and ageing, such as fine lines and wrinkles. You can find it in many of our favorite serums here at Byrdie HQ.
Vitamin B5 or Pantothenic Acid, is a naturally occurring compound that helps maintain a healthy skin barrier and reduce trans-epidermal water loss. It also promotes collagen production for firmer, plumper skin and improves skin elasticity over time. It also soothes sensitive skin and promotes cellular turnover. (2)
It is suitable for all skin types, as it acts as a humectant and an emollient and is non-comedogenic (will not clog pores). For oily or combination skin, it can help balance the sebum production by inhibiting excess oiliness. For dry or sensitive skin, it is a great moisturizer and is highly effective at calming irritation.
When used in skincare products, it is typically formulated at a concentration of 0.5-3% and can be found in cleansers, serums, creams or therapeutic face masks. It can also be combined with other ingredients for synergy and to target specific skin concerns. It is a good idea to use it with AHAs as this can cause some irritation and redness.Skin Whitening Injection
