Frequently asked questions

  1. What is BrightenMi and how does it work?

BrightenMi is a skin care line that was created to cater to skin problems due to acne, discoloration, hyper-pigmentation, blemishes, sunburn, melasma, and to even the complexion for a brighter and lustrous look.

  1. What side effects should be expected from using BrightenMi?

When used to treat skin discoloration, BrightenMi face creams and body milks are expected to brighten for a smooth and even complexion.

  1. How safe are BrightenMi brightening creams?

Extensive clinical testing of BrightenMi brightening creams has been done to ensure its safety on all skin types. Unlike other companies that use synthetic ingredients such as steroids, hydroquinone, and mercury that are damaging to the skin for brightening, BrightenMi products are infused with fruit-based acids – proven to improve skin appearance, and overall health.

  1. What ingredients do you use, and how do they work to brighten?

Fruit-based acids such as alpha hydoxy acids, and fungal acids, such as kojic acid, are the main ingredients found in BrightenMi products, including our cleansers, body milks, face creams, and in the acne fighting cream.  How they brighten is by penetrating the skin and helping to exfoliate dead skin cells that sit on the skin’s uppermost surface, leaving newer and healthier skin cells to show through. There is some evidence to show that fruit acids may help to stimulate collagen and elastin production as well.

The benefits of fruit acid are many and they have been shown to help:

  • Decrease skin pigmentation
  • Reduce the appearance of wrinkles
  • Reduce skin roughness leading to smoother, softer skin
  • Improve the appearance of sun-damaged skin
  1. When do I start seeing results?

All skin types are different, which means some will display results a few days after use, while others on average will start noticing a change 2 weeks after. May take up to 6 weeks for skin to even out.

  1. Will the brightening effects to my skin be permanent, and at what point do I discontinue use?

The brightening effects will persist as long as the creams are applied to skin. We generally encourage our clients to discontinue use after discoloration has cleared; but advise those who use our skin products for brightening purposes, to apply every other day to maintain their desired complexion.

  1. What do I purchase for my skin problems?

Our products have labels and directions to guide our customers in making the right selection. Please follow directions.
