A Few Tips on Lightening Your Skin Naturally
Having the perfect complexion, young glowing skin is highly desirable by human beings. However, with skin flaws and blemishes such as age spots, melasma, hyperpigmentation, acne damage, freckles, sun damage and much more, achieving a perfect skin tone can often be a problem. With many of these skin imperfections being noticeably visible, problems such as confidence issues, self insecurities, and even depression may affect your day to day lives. This is where I like to suggest learning how to naturally lighten skin, rather than using potentional harmful chemical based bleaching products.
So Where Should I Begin?
In many cases a person will go to their local pharmacy and purchase a chemical
based skin bleaching cream without reading about or doing any research on the
chemicals that they use.
Now, in some cases this may be fine and everything may just work out well... ...but often in other cases people end up severely damaging their skin, leaving it in a much worse condition than it was before using the bleaching cream, which is why I recommend learning how to lighten skin naturally.
A lot of the active chemicals used in these products can be very harsh to your skin, especially for those who have sensitive skin, and in fact some of these chemicals are being banned in countries across the world.
Be Aware of These Ingredients That are Often Used:
Hydroquinone- may cause a burning sensation, rash, and or skin irritation. This chemical is banned in Europe.
Mercury- Can build up in your cells and actually enter your body, causing internal damages such as neurological and kidney damage.
Steroids- Such as Corticosteroid- may cause thinning of skin tissue, loss of appetite, slow the process of your body's healing process, cataracts and much more.
Mineral Oil- Clogs pores and does not allow skin to breathe, eliminating your skins ability to get rid of toxins.
Parabens- Often found in bleaching creams to preserve it and provide a longer shelf life. May cause cancer and skin rashes.
The chemicals found in skin bleaching creams are aimed to reduce the amount of Melanin that your body produces, which is what protects your skin from the sun, leaving you more prone to skin cancer and early aging. However, by learning how to naturally lighten skin and using ingredients that can be found in your kitchen, you are eliminating all side effects and potential permanent damages.
Not only are skin bleaching creams potentially harmful they often will leave your skin feeling dried out, old, and cracked. The first thing people that learn how to lighten skin naturally notice on top of a lighter skin tons is how fresh, elastic, and young their skin feels, and it is very cheap to do.
