1. Kojic Acid
Kojic acid is an effective skin-lightening ingredient that can fade dark spots like sun damage, age spots, and those obnoxious post-breakout marks. It can also help even out your overall complexion and improve the look of melasma, says Chang.
The kojic acid found in mushrooms and fermented foods like rice wine and soy sauce works by inhibiting the formation of tyrosine, an enzyme that’s necessary for melanin production. It’s generally safe to use in concentrations of 1 percent or less, though some people may experience redness, rashes, itching, and contact dermatitis, which is why it’s best used with caution and patch-tested first.
A cream containing kojic acid is likely to be more effective at fading dark spots and pigmentation than a serum, since it sits on the skin for longer. If you’re sensitive, you might want to choose a cleanser or mask that contains the ester form of kojic acid (Kojic Dipalmitate) as it causes much less irritation.
2. Vitamin A
This whitening cream comes from tibet and contains ingredients such as glutathione, wheat germ oil, jojoba oil, turmeric, sandalwood oil, neem oil, aloe vera, and pure guarana extract. It whitens the skin and also evens out the skin tone. It also nourishes the face and prevents dullness and wrinkles.
Vitamin C brightens and hydrates. Resorcinol and alpha arbutin lighten pigment that causes dark spots, says dermatologist Cynthia Price of Phoenix. GH Beauty Lab test winner SkinCeuticals MetaCell Renewal B3 Serum is packed with the antioxidant, and glycerin boosts hydration.

3. Vitamin C
Vitamin C is one of the best skin brightening ingredients, as it prevents melanin production in the cells. It is a powerful anti-oxidant that also boosts collagen and elastin production to reduce fine lines and wrinkles. It also helps to fade dark spots and evens out skin tone. It is safe for all skin types including sensitive skin.
Another great skin lightening ingredient is licorice root extract, which also helps to brighten dull complexion. Combine it with other ingredients like cocoa butter, glycerine, niacinamide and sodium hyaluronate for an effective homemade skin lightening night cream.

4. Mushroom Extract
Reishi mushrooms are packed with antioxidants that protect the skin against environmental stressors like pollution and sun damage. They also boost the skin’s ability to absorb and retain moisture, making them a great ingredient for boosting hydration.
The beauty world has gone mushroom crazy for this powerhouse ingredient. Reishi mushroom benefits include brightening the complexion, reducing hyperpigmentation and soothing irritated skin. This is thanks to their high levels of vitamin D, amino acids and minerals.
Another mushroom superstar is the tremella mushroom (also known as silver ear mushroom). It’s loaded with hydrating beta-glucans and powerful antioxidants called hericenones and erinacines that help fight oxidative stress, which causes hyperpigmentation and wrinkles.
This luscious gel moisturizer is rich in hyaluronic acid (which has 400 times more hydrating power than sodium hyaluronate), tremella mushroom and MossCellTec(tm) to visibly firm, plump, majorly brighten, and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It’s also formulated with anti-inflammatory white mushroom extract and glutamine to calm skin and protect against sensitivity.

6. Rice Water
Rice water is a staple in Asian cuisine that helps maintain healthy skin. It is an essential component of Japanese and Korean beauty and skincare regimens. It is believed that rice water contains a natural ingredient called ‘pitera’ that brightens the skin and reduces fine lines and wrinkles. It is also a good moisturizer and helps reduce acne, blemishes and psoriasis.
Hence, it is safe for all skin types and works well as a face mist or toner for all skin care routines. It can also be used to soothe skin and reduce inflammation, itching and redness caused by irritants.
