5 Daily Habits For Fairer Skin

  • Turn your skin care regime into a daily routine
  • Use products with effective whitening formula.
  • Protect your skin from sun damage.
  • Reduce the effects of pollution on your skin.
  • For those who use birth control pills, counter the dark side effects.


We’re used to life happening in an instant — blink and you’ll miss it. But when it comes to our skin, it takes at least 7 days before we see the results of our skin care routine. The experts at The Pond’s Institute listed down 5 ways you can make skin whitening an everyday habit.

1. Take small steps for big results

Skin needs time to regenerate naturally. That is why it is so important to stick to a regular skin care habit. Consistency is the key to beautiful skin.

2. Adopt products with effective whitening formula

Having a set routine helps but deep down, what really matters is what you put on your skin. After 10 years of analysing more than 20,000 genes, scientists at The Pond’s Institute have identified the one of critical genes that affects skin darkening. With this in mind, they created Pond’s Flawless White range with GenActiv formula. This formula is designed to adapt to your skin, fades out dark spots and lightens skin from the inside, resulting in a radiant complexion outside in just 7 days.

3. Don’t take sun protection lightly

Daylight contains harmful UVA and UVB rays, even when the skies look cloudy. So be sure to leave the house with at least SPF15 worth of sun protection.

One way to skip a step in your daily skin care routine is to use a moisturiser that’s already enriched with sun-protection ingredients, like Pond’s Flawless White Visible Lightening Day Cream with SPF 18 PA++ for protection against UV rays. Created with the breakthrough GenActiv™ formula, this day cream also contains VAO-B3 complex and Stearic Acid which helps lessen the damage inside your skin, while improving the tone on your skin’s surface.

4. Control the effects of pollution on your skin

If you live in a metropolis, you’ll need a skin-whitening regime that’s effective at combating harmful urban pollution and stops dark spots. One way is to exfoliate regularly.

5. Lessen the effects of hyperpigmentation

Taking birth control pills can lead to dull, uneven skin tone and dark spots as they trigger hormones responsible for hyperpigmentation. An effective moisturiser with sunscreen can help reduce the side effects on skin.
