Four Steps to Lighter, Brighter Skin with Kojie San

Here in Manila, we're right smack in the middle of summer, the hottest we've experienced in years with temperatures going upwards of 36° C (96.8° F). So, unless I'm on vacation in the beach, wonder not why I've elected to stay indoors as much as I could in the safety and comfort of my bedroom. You see, although I have fair skin, I've experienced the horrors of getting uneven skin tone  as a soccer player back in my high school days. It's been years since then but my skin hasn't completely recovered from the discoloration caused by daily exposure to the sun and free radicals. 

Thankfully, I've recently discovered four products by KOJIE SAN that can help give me a lighter, brighter, more even skintone.

I've heard a lot about the brand, especially Kojie San Skin Lightening Soap, easily among the most popular skin whitening products in the country and one that has captured the hearts of light-skin obsessed Filipinos everywhere.

I did a little research of my own and found that Kojie San was first launched in 2007 by Beauty Elements Ventures, Inc. as its flagship product in the beauty and skin care business. The main ingredient of the skin lightening soap is Kojic Acid, which is said to work by inhibiting the enzyme tyrosinase - an essential enzyme in the production of melanin. Melanin as you know is the pigment that gives the skin its color. The more melanin, the darker the skin, and the less melanin produced, the lighter the skin. 

With the success of the lightening soap, a whole range of products have been launched all especially formulated to provide fair, flawless healthy looking skin. I found that all it takes is an easy four-step process that includes:

Whitening with Kojie San Skin Lightening Soap
With high-grade Kojic Acid, this skin lightening soap can effectively diminish dark spots, acne, stretch marks, and help correct uneven skin tone for lighter, whiter, and clearer skin!
