Skin whitening products have long been a hot issue in the skin care industry. There are many controversial subjects that come up including racism, the health of the skin and person and more. So, is lightening or whitening your skin right or wrong? Does it work, and is it healthy?
If you or someone you know are suffering from hyperpigmentation problems such as freckles, dark spots on face, melasma, dark underarms, legs, knees, thighs or elbows, age spots, dark neck, or just uneven skin tone, then you’ll know from experience that using skin whitening products can be very disappointing. In addition to sometimes disappointing results, they are also very expensive!
Some of the controversy has come from the fact that many of the skin lightening products sold in some countries can actually do a lot of harm. They may actually lighten the skin but they have some nasty unwanted side effects up to and including bran damage.
There are many types of skin whitening products, some that are safe, others are not. Some of them are ineffective or can cause unwanted results while others can provide an even lightening of skin. With so many skin products available it is easy to get confused. There are also several names for products that are supposed to be doing the same things. SOme common terms associated with these products are skin lightening, skin whitening or skin bleaching. These terms are often used interchangably when discussing any product in this industry.
Now there are many companies out there who produce a number of products for achieving lighter skin, and some are better than others at removing dark circles, skin discoloration, acne, freckles etc. to get the perfect skin you want, and there is also a lot of hype. Whether you want to lighten your skin for medical, self-esteem or simply aesthetic reasons, it is important to make sure you use the right skin whitening products that actually work and do not harm or rip you off.
Choosing the wrong product, ones that have been manufactured with some dangerous components such as hydroquinone or mercury for example, can be very harmful to you, and you need to take care with the brands of skin and whitening products you use to ensure they are safe for your skin and don’t have any nasty side effects, as some of these products have been linked to skin cancer, skin diseases and premature ageing, so some caution is required.
A good advice is to make sure you only listen to someone with experience and who has personally tried and tested the best skin whitening products that actually work. A few good brands of skin whitening products include Diana Stalder Skin Whitening Products, Dermaline Skin Whitening Products, and Glutathione Skin Whitening Pills and more information about these and every aspect of skin whitening can be found on the authors website below (see author’s box).
So, are skin and whitening products worth it? Well, they are if you use the right ones, and have all the facts before making your decision. I wish you the very best of luck and hope you achieve the goal you are looking for.
