FOR BELOVED ONE Advanced Whitening Arbutin Series

Many a times, we were taught to use whitening products only when we are indoors with the curtains drawn as it may leave our skin more vulnerable to UV rays. In some cases, skin applied with whitening products may even lead to burning when exposed to the sun.
Coming March 2014, FOR BELOVED ONE is launching a new series of whitening skincare products namely - Advanced Whitening α-Arbutin specially to combat this problem and to give an alternative to those who love going out under the sun and yet wish to stay fair.

About Advanced Whitening Arbutin Series
It is an upgraded comprehensive whitening series that combines low-irritant α-Arbutin compound and DNA whitening ingredients to provide a dual effect brightening treatment. This upgraded formula utilizes our skin’s crucial 72 hours after sun exposure to come to the rescue by stimulating our skin’s self whitening mechanisms and targeting the root causes of melanin formation, breaking down melanin layer by layer, achieving healthy skin that is immune to turning dull and dark. Skin is bright and radiant day to night, 24 hours a day! 
The Advanced Whitening Arbutin Series was launched in Taiwan in 2013 and has immediately taken the market by storm and was quickly sold out in stores all over Taiwan.

Sun Exposure - Take advantage of the Golden 72 hours for whitening
Most people mistakenly think that after sun exposure, you will immediately see your skin turn darker, but they do not know that there is a physiological mechanism and process in our bodies that delay the tanning process, and this delaying process is the golden period in which we can rescue our skin from the aftermath of sun exposure. 
Once the skin is exposed to UV rays, there are two reactions: "immediate tanning" and "delayed tanning". The so-called “immediate tanning” is when the existing but hidden melanin in our skin appears on skin surface in order to protect our skin; “delayed tanning” is when our bodies generate new melanin to protect our skin, because it requires production process, so the time tan will appear on our skin is delayed. 
The key to whitening lies in how to fight this "delayed tanning" response.
Professional Cosmeceutical Skincare brand FOR BELOVED ONE studies have found that once skin is exposed to UV rays, our body's melanin undergoes a process of formation, pigmentation, transfer, and metabolize within 72 hours. Therefore the most effective whitening approach is to grasp the key 72 hour repair period to come to the rescue – by suppressing the root of melanin formation at a DNA level, breaking and preventing melanin formation – that is the ultimate way to achieve optimal whitening results and prevent spots and skin dullness!

FOR BELOVED ONE has developed an Advanced Whitening Melanin-Blocking Technology – unlike traditional whitening products that only target melanin formation at the second level (reduce/inhibit activity of the enzyme tyrosinase to prevent pigmentation), FOR BELOVED ONE’s Advanced Whitening Melanin-Blocking Technology conducts whitening at an even earlier level.

While I have not been going under the sun for a year now but previously I often get sun exposure due to the nature of my job, involving lots of running around outdoors for meetings and events. I was about 1-2 shades darker then and after a year of just staying indoors most of the time, I became fairer. Lucky for me, even with previous 3 years of frequent sun exposure, pigmentation didn't surface except for the fact that my skin became rather dehydrated, dull and I looked alot older. (sigh~ U_U")
With this new range of whitening products, I'm intrigued to find out how well it'll work on my skin. I still wear sunblock everyday but I personally think that it may not be quite enough if there comes a day that I need to work under the sun for long hours again.
