SKIN LIGHTENING FOR BLACK PEOPLE
If you're a dark skinned Venus who wants to lighten her skin, bleaching products were basically made for you. If your beauty ideal is two tones lighter than your current complexion, you’re the perfect candidate for skin lightening.
The fact that your skin has increased levels of melanin might make you more prone to conditions like hyperpigmentation and melasma. Don’t worry, these problems are not medically dangerous. Still, a lot of women find them frustrating and would rather have a cleaner, smoother skin. This is where skin whitening treatments come in.
What Do I Look For?
What Should I Look For?
If you’re interested in skin lightening, the first thing you need to determine is what area of skin you’re looking to whiten. If you have hyperpigmentation issues or melasma on your face, you may only need a facial lightening cream or gel.
Women with impurities or marks on their body will benefit from an all-over skin lightening cream or gel.
Many women that want to lighten their whole body choose skin lightening soap as an alternative to creams and gels because it’s so easy to use.
Whatever you do, make sure to avoid products like the one pictured above. Companies that don’t have money for their labels typically don’t have money for the product either, so you really can’t know what you’re getting.
If you don’t want to be deceived, stick with a well-known company that is going to provide you with a quality product.
Do Skin Lightening Products Actually Work?
The short answer to this question is yes. Skin lightening products absolutely do work.
However, you need to get your skin lightening products from a manufacturer that makes a quality product, so research is your best friend. Don’t buy the first thing that you find and be aware that a lot of skin whitening products contain carcinogens you’d never want to touch your body. Chemicals in skin lightening creams are highly controversial and we’d always go for botanical gels and serums if we had to choose.
Are There Side Effects?
Quality skin lightening products made with natural ingredients don’t have many side effects. Like any topical treatment, even the moisturizer you buy at the drugstore, there’s a chance of minor irritation.
Skin lightening products made with natural ingredients don’t cause irritation, and if you do experience any, it will go away after a day or two of using the product.
Using natural products is a much better way to see results without damaging your skin in any way.
Don’t forget your ultimate goal should always be healthy skin.
