As we approach the end of Winter, our skin can tend to look a little dull and lifeless. To brighten up your complexion and even out your skin tone naturally, there are some simple skincare steps you can take to achieve this! To breathe new life into your skin, I love using skincare products filled with naturally brightening ingredients. Some of my favourite ingredients to look out for include Lemon which is antioxidant rich and fights free radicals, Sake which is well known for its brightening properties. Kakadu Plum is also a fantastic beauty ingredient, super rich in Vitamin C it can be used to help even out the skin!
