If you are looking for a way to lighten your skin tone, then you’re in luck. There are many skin bleaching methods and products out there on the market that allow you to safely bleach your skin in the comfort of your own home. While this may be old news to people that have been bleaching for quite some time. Skin bleaching can be overwhelming for someone who is just beginning.
Skin bleaching is something you can do yourself in the comfort of your own home, however, there are many do’s and don’ts to skin bleaching. It’s important to educate yourself before doing it yourself.
Here are some tips to make your journey in finding the right product easier.
Tip 1: What Is Your Skin Type?
While everyone’s body is different, so is our skin. Regardless of your race, it’s important to pick a product that will best suit your needs. It’s important to note that skin whitening works for all types of skin color, yet for some, it’ll take longer to see results.
Some products may cause skin irritation, while others may cause dryness to the skin. It is important to know whether your skin tone is normal, oily, dry, or all of the above.
Tip 2: Avoid Carcinogenic Products
Unfortunately not all skin bleaching products contain healthy ingredients, even though they may be effective in lightening up your skin tone. Some skin bleaching creams and gels may contain a carcinogenic called, “Hydroquinone”. Hydroquinone can cause many different skin complications such as irritation and redness. When choosing a whitening cream and gel, look for products that are hydroquinone free and be sure to read user reviews before making your purchase.
If you can absorb the costs of an all-natural product, that would be the best way to go. Which brings me to the next tip…
Tip 3: Look For All Natural Products
Depending on the tone of your skin, you may be able to get away with a simple homemade concoction like a mix of orange peels and two tablespoons of milk, which creates a skin paste. This can help smoothen the face, and give it brightness after leaving it on for twenty minutes.
Many skin bleaching products available on the market contain all natural ingredients. Always check for all natural products that have ingredients such as Gigawhite, Mulberry Extract, Kojic Acid, and Vitamin C.
Tip 4: When In Doubt, Ask A Dermatologist
If you suffer from Hyperpigmentation, you may need a professional to provide an examination or give you expert consultation on what will work best for you. If you have any doubts, or if you are experiencing side effects or complications from a particular skin bleaching product, it’s important to immediately ask a professional any concerns or questions that you may have.
Tip 5: Preventative And Careful Use
While there are some myths out there pertaining to skin bleaching, whitening medicine is actually prescribed by many dermatologists to combat inflammatory pigmentation because the cream or medicine prevents melanin from being produced. That being said, there are certain things you should be aware of before you use a skin bleaching product.
1. When you go tanning or expect to be out in the sun, it is important to wear a high SPF sunblock to shield your skin. Skin whitening treatment makes your skin more photosensitive. Meaning you may burn more easily.
2. It’s also important to not bleach damaged, wounded or burnt skin. This may cause further irritation and complication.
A good bleaching cream will reduce dark spots, uneven skin tones, and can accomplish many benefits like covering up acne scars by inhibiting melanin production. There are many great products out there to choose from that can help whiten your skin.
By taking some of these tips and recommendations into consideration, you too will enjoy a lighter skin tone, a healthier complexion, and hassle-free skin bleaching experience.
