As we age, circulation within the skin diminishes, depriving skin cells of vitamin C.
Applying anti oxidant Vitamin “C” to our skin every day is important because it's essential for the synthesis of collagen, a key structural protein of the skin. And most importantly, Vitamin C is a super-powerful antioxidant that can help reduce skin damage caused by free radicals (free radicals break down collagen, the "glue" that holds skin together).
>> Vitamin “C” benefits
Vitamin “C” is essential for maintaining healthy skin. It is also known as Ascorbic Acid, the key producer of collagen, which gives skin its firmness and strength, helping your skin repair itself. Vitamin “C” is an antioxidant that slows the rate of free-radical damage (unstable molecules that cause dark spots, rough dry skin, dullness, sun damage and fine lines and wrinkles).
Adding Vitamin “C” to your daily skincare regimen will continuously strengthen skin’s defense against environmental factors, promote collagen production and firm and brighten skin, leaving it with a much healthier, firmer, brighter appearance. Fair and White Exclusive products contain Vitamin “C”.

- Exfoliating Soaps should only be used 1-2 times a week on the complexion, always allowing 3-4 days between treatments. Opposite days, use non-exfoliating soaps like Dove, Carotis Glycerin bar soap or LightenUp Glycerin Bathing Bar with Papaya Fruit Extract and 4% Shea Butter
- Too much exfoliation can lead to dryness and irritation, causing inflammation, which can lead to darker skin, especially with women and men of color.
Discoloration can make skin look 10 years older, according to studies.
As we age, the normal production of new skin cells slows down giving the skin a dull appearance. Therefore, the most effective way to treat discoloration is to enhance lightening results by exfoliating 1-2 times a week, always allowing 3-4 days between these treatments. Exfoliation is an important step to add to your daily skincare regimen because it will immediately improve skin’s texture, allowing for better penetration of lightening/brightening products. This extra step will result in the skin looking smoother and brighter, restoring an even toned appearance much quicker.
Look for exfoliating creams rather than a bar soap because exfoliating soaps can be too harsh for your complexion. Try OMIC Skin Polish Exfoliating Cream; restores a luminous complexion, instantly.

Nearly every complexion can benefit from a moisturizer, even an oily one. Contrary to the popular myth that oily does skin does not need to moisturize because such hydration may lead to clogged pores is a myth; moisturizing all skin types is essential, especially during winter months and using the right moisturizer during bone chilling temperatures, matters. There’s a lipid barrier in our epidermal cells (upper most layer of skin) which protects our skin against environmental factors. Extreme dryness breaks this down and then you are susceptible to irritation which can result in inflammation. The solution is simple enough; moisturizing.
Moisturizers perform a function that is very important: they keep your skin hydrated. And as anyone has experienced, the tightness and itchiness of dehydrated skin can attest; hydrated skin is comfortable skin. Also, a good moisturizer helps minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, which is just as important. At the uppermost level of the skin, the straneum corneum faces a daily assault from the environment, and so a moisturizer works by creating a barrier between it and the air. Without this barrier, the skin would flake and become dry and irritated.
Another important feature of a moisturizer is its ability to help the skin maintain its own water reserve.
This ultra moisturizing Cream contains key ingredients like Moist 24 (known as Imperata Cylindrica), a unique ingredient that creates its own water reserve in the skin and works as a reparative peptide known as Acetyl tetrapeptide15 that soothes and calms over-reactive skin for 24 hours, soothing feelings of pain, burning, tingling or tightness while increasing skins water reserve. Skin’s comfort is immediately enhanced.
