You’ve tried them all – lasers, dark-spot erasers, brightening creams, and intensive melanin-zappingg serums. The results are, at first, obvious – rejoice! – and thenen just a few months down the line, dark spots and freckles – or worse, melasma (in layman terms, dark patches) – return. “Melasma requires repeated treatment,” says Dr. Tiffany Yang. “Usually, I advise patients to check in with me two to four times per year to maintain the results.”
Dr. Yang, a regular guest speaker on top beauty shows in Taiwan as well as for Dior, has seen more than enough patients at her clinic, Yang’s Cosmetic Surgery and Dermatology Clinic, to know that the majority of Asian women are constantly seeking out brightening procedures and anti-ageing methods as gateways to permanent youth. No wonder Dior was intrigued.
Spending more than 10 years conducting research on delicate skin, findings on how “inflammaging” of the skin is the primary cause of ageing and pigmentation were instrumental in leading the research team to the discovery of the “dark spots memory Dior Prestige White

dermis, sending messages via fibroblasts to the epidermis, boosting melanin production and increasing chances of pigmentation resurfacing over time despitep efforts to erase them. An important discovery, very, as most brightening products counter dark spotspots on the surface only.
“As you know, we have Dior Prestige,, formulated around the unique Rose de Granville Nectar, an extract from a rose that grows in the Dior Garden,” says Nathalie Cachin, Dior scientific communications manager. “This line s specifically fights against agei ageing signs seen on fragile, delicate skin. Now, we combine this with the White Rose elixir to get the best of anti-ageing and brightening.” As Cachin recalls, “We found that the White Rose, which grows in the Dior Garden, seemed so different from the other roses. We began to extract it in oil form, and discovered that it had actual efficacy on the dermis fibroblast.
“This formula is more of a preventive action within the skin,” she adds. “Thanks to this technology we can target the fibroblasts and prevent the reappearance of melanin.”
Notes Cachin, “Prestige White provides biological protection – it acts to reduce pro-pigmentation messages in the dermis. Of course, you should still use SPF all day long.”
As with all Dior beauty products, the collection has a luxurious texture and scent to leave skin feeling velvety smooth and smelling of roses. “Dior has also created an exclusive new vector to allow deeper penetration beyond the epidermis,” divulges Cachin. “The White Rose Pearls contain the formula in a unique water-based structure that, when activated, blends perfectly into the dermis.” These vectors are like molecules that burst open when applied onto the skin, instantly melting deep into pores.
“When we say whitening, it is not about merely whiter skin,” explains Cachin of Dior’s aim to ultimately change conventional views of whitening. “The idea hereher is luminosity, rosy cheeks, and als also radiance. ItI is an aura of the skin.” Available at all Dior counters.
