It’s almost SUMMER TIME and I know the girls are trying to not only get their body right, but their skin right too. Everyone wants baby smooth skin and although I have the baby smooth skin on my face and neck... I've been lacking in taking care of my bikini area. :(
One thing I’ve recently been focusing on is getting my bikini area bright and smooth for the beach days, pool parties, and bikini IG photos. :)
I do NOT like dealing with strawberry skin and dark spots from shaving… (WAX YALL!) But with running a business and maintaining a growing toddler, most days it's much easier for me to just hop in the shower and maintain along my bikini line with a quick shave or using Veet. It's convenient, but can definitely come with some unattractive consequences. After doing some research, I knew I needed to formulate something that could help this issue before coochie cutter short season. I’ve recently discovered the power of kojic acid, licorice root, turmeric, and sea buckthorn all in one and it's been working wonders on brightening my bikini area and smoothing out the strawberry skin on my legs
The main thing I’ve been learning is kojic acid, licorice root, turmeric, and sea buckthorn are some powerful ingredients that can help brighten and even out skin tone, reduce inflammation, and protect against environmental stressors.
Kojic acid is a natural compound derived from fungi that has been proven to have skin-brightening effects. It works by inhibiting melanin production, the pigment that gives color to our skin. By reducing the amount of melanin in the skin, kojic acid can help reduce the appearance of hyperpigmentation and dark spots.
Sea buckthorn is a type of berry that is packed with antioxidants and vitamins, including vitamin C, which can help brighten and even out skin tone. It also has anti-inflammatory properties that can help reduce redness and irritation in the skin.
Together, these natural ingredients have been doing wonders for my strawberry skin on my legs, brightening under my arms, and brightening up that bikini area. Finding an actual solution for reducing the appearance of hyperpigmentation and dark spots, and reducing inflammation from shaving and annoying jeans… (i hate jeans) has been my MO all winter and I am excited to share a product I’ve crafted that’s been blessing my skin overall. I crafted this whipped kojic acid lemon butter with the best ingredients I could source with the kojic acid dipalmitate formulated at 9%.... So it's doing its J.O.B.!!
These ingredients have been working together so beautifully and I’m in awe of the effect it’s had on my dark spots with just a week of daily usage. I use it morning and night and the bikini area has been thanking me entirely.
AND…it smells amazing!!! The lemon oil gives it a traditional lemon citrus scent, but I’ve also added lemon pound cake scent to the natural, zesty, bright, citrusy lemon to give this whipped an overall warm, comforting aroma of a freshly baked lemon pound cake that will literally make you want to take a bite of yourself.
