Dermalogica has been in the skincare business for over 25 years, and their focus has always been on irritant-free products that don’t trigger breakouts and help improve your skin’s skin health. That doesn’t mean that the line lacks potent, effective options, though. If you’re batting sun damage, age spots, acne scarring or other hyperpigmentation issues, the ChromaWhite TRx Brightening line is a powerful system for brightening and evening out your skin tone. Not only does the regime deliver results quickly, it doesn’t cause any of the premature aging that hyperpigmentation treatment products with harsh ingredients can sometimes inflict.
Since pigment production in the skin involves a multi-step process, the ChromaWhite TRx Brightening line uses a multi-step regime to fade discolorations and brighten the skin. With products designed for use in the morning and evening, your skin receives 24-hour hyperpigmentation treatment and protection so your dark spots and discolorations fade more quickly and you don’t have to worry about new spots forming.
The Chroma White TRx Brightening regime begins with cleansing and exfoliating products that help prepare the skin by removing dead skin cells that may prevent treatment products from fully penetrating your skin. The Tri-Active Cleanse is a triple-active concentrated cleanser that combines enzymes, peptides and lactic acid to remove dull skin cells and deep clean your skin so it’s ready for treatment products. You can cleanse with the Tri-Active up to twice a day, but if you have sensitive skin, once a day is usually best.
For potent exfoliation, the Powerfoliant is a two-part product that removes skin-dulling cells. The powder and liquid components combine and become activated when you press down on the button on the top of the bottle. Apply five to six drops to your face and massage it into your skin. Let it sit for approximately two to three minutes before rinsing it off. Use the Powerfoliant two to three times a week depending on your exfoliation needs.
The Chroma White TRx Brightening regime’s main treatment product, though, is the C-12 Concentrate. This highly potent serum contains peptides, minerals, and botanical extracts to help correct discoloration in skin cells and improve skin clarity. The formula also uses silicones to give the serum a silky texture that conditions the skin and strengthens its barrier layer. Apply to cleansed skin morning and night – you can use it all over your face or apply only to discolored areas.
If you want to give your skin care regime an extra brightening boost, the Chroma White TRx line also offers Extreme C, a highly potent brightening powder. Containing magnesium acorbyl phosphate, a form of Vitamin C, and antioxidant white tea, the powder helps brighten and protect the skin against future discolorations. You can apply the powder directly to areas of hyperpigmentation and rub in, or mix it in with your usual moisturizer to amp up its brightening power.
The Chroma White TRx line also offers a day and a night cream if you’re in the market for a good moisturizer. The Pure Light SPF30 is a medium-weight moisturizer that helps brighten the skin with Vitamin C, peptides and botanical extracts. It also contains hyaluronic acid to provide intense hydration that reduces the look of fine lines and wrinkles. The formula’s chemical-free sunscreens help prevent future discoloration by protecting the skin from skin discoloring UV rays. Apply it to your face and throat after your C-12 Concentrate.
At bedtime, Pure Night helps hydrate and nourish the skin. However, the formula’s gluconic acid and antioxidants also help brighten the skin to minimize discoloration and hyperpigmentation. Apply at night after you’ve cleansed and applied the C-12 Concentrate, focusing specifically on dry patches.
