Using exfoliants can also help fade pigmentation by speeding up cell turnover and accelerating the natural peeling of pigmented or dead skin cells and stimulating new skin cells growth. Exfoliants such as AHA's,NeoGlucosamin and Retinol also have added anti-aging benefits and can bring faster results when used in combination with a lightening treatment.
