Ways To Make Your Skin Lighter

Different Ways To Make Your Skin Lighter

I just wrote an article called how to make your skin lighter on Knoji, and I wanted to promote it a little, and so I'm publishing this blog post. 

It talks about the different ways you can make your skin lighter, everything from lemon or lime juice, to more effective products that use natural ingredients like arbutin, to potentially deadly products that have been found to contain mercury. 

Skin whitening is not for everybody, as some people have really dark skin, and bleaching could be a massive change for them, more serious a life decision than plastic surgery. 

Take the example of Michael Jackson, who changed his skin tone from black to white by using a prescription cream containing hydroquinone. 

The product being advertised in the video above from Tonique Skin Care contains arbutin, which is a natural source of hydroquinone, and as such, has a similar, although less powerful effect as that chemical. 

Bleaching the skin is best saved for those who have white skin already, and have a patch of skin that they want to even out. 

For example, someone may have freckles, birthmarks, acne scars, sun spots, liver spots, pregnancy marks, hypo-pigmentation, hyper-pigmentation, or any number of things which leave uneven skin tone on naturally white skin. 

It is possible to change your whole skin color from say yellow, or brown to white, but these sort of cultural or purely cosmetic reasons for changing skin tone are not the primary reason for these treatments. 

The idea is that if somebody has a patch of skin that is darker, or red, with all white skin surrounding it, then they can bleach the skin in stages, in order to make it more like the surrounding area.

It's not easy for everyone to get a prescription handed out for a more powerful cream, and so there fore a site like toniqueskincare.com is a necessity, especially seeing as there are a number of less reputable companies selling inferior products.

The only real advice is to do your research, (there's some high quality skin whitening tips on the Tonique Facebook page), talk to your doctor, and once you are completely certain of what you can expect, use a skin whitening, lightening, or bleaching chemical if it is, and only if it is required.
