How To Use

For faster brightening results use the takesumi bright double dose method:

STEP 1: the kojic acid bar
Moisten the bar and apply the lather to affected areas with a soft and gentle cloth or silicone exfoliating brush (fingers can be used if exfoliating has occurred more than twice a week). Massage for 30 seconds to allow the actives to penetrate the area before rinsing off.

STEP 2: niacinamide deodorant
Follow with a generous application of deodorant to clean, dry underarms daily.

This bar may also be used on dark spot pigmentation on arms, elbows, knees, inner thighs and buttocks for effective management of pigmentation in these regions. 

Do not use in the vaginal region or to shave underarms. Do not use after shaving. Always shave in the evening and allow your skin to calm before using this product.

Note: The longer the pigmentation has been present the longer it will take to see significant improvement. Post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation is a result of irritation. Brightening treatments will be unsuccessful until underlying cause of inflammation has been addressed.
