How to have glowy skin?

I’ve been struggling recently on what products to use in order to achieve healthy glowy skin particularly because of my hyperpigmentation. Can anyone please recommend some products that are worth a try?

I have two ingredients in mind for glowy skin! Propolis and galactomyces! For hyperpigmentation, I think niacinamide, tranexamic acid and vitamin c would be a great choice. With consistent usage of propolis and galactomyces, you can achieve glowy skin. Both ingredients need time to deliver results, but you'll definitely feel that healthy glow. Somebymi has galactomyces, niacinamide and vitamin c, so I believe it would be perfect for your concern.

I actually use niacinamide at nighttime whenever I don’t use retinol. And yes, I know vitamin c can help a lot in hyperpigmentation but as far as I know it works better with other acids that can boost its effect. As for tranexamic acid, I may have to learn a thing or more about it, but thanks for this new information. I’ve also been looking into the 2 products you recommended recently as well. I’m glad that I’m in the right track. Thank you so much! You’re a great help 🥰

Best products for glow are tretinoin and hydroquinone for your hyperpigmentation those are ofc prescription only, but they work the fastest then you maintain with the regular otc products! If you can’t get a prescription then I suggest these Use retinol at night, alpha in the morning and the bha twice a week on nights you don’t use retinol

Thanks for giving me 2 options and putting a thought whether I can get a prescription or not because you’re actually right on the premise that I can’t. I’ve been using the retinol from the inkey list once a week now. It used to be twice a week but I’ve cut back a little because of the purging. I’m also incorporating BHAs in my nighttime routine so I had to use niacinamide and retinols alternately. For the Alpha Arbutin, I did a little research and it’s indeed worth a try especially for hyperpigmentation, so I’m glad that you recommended a product that I can use; plus it has hyaluronic acid as well. Thanks for this! I’m also tagging the products I’ve mentioned here.

Well, it seems you have built a great routine for addressing your concerns. Just keep it up, it might need longer time to see the results since it's not prescriptions' strenght. If you like to, you can try to have routine professional exfoliation at a dermatologist office. I believe it would speed up the depigmenting process
