A Guide to Skin Whitening
Skin whitening is a process to bleach and lighten the skin. The creams target skin cells to decrease the level of melanin. Melanin is a pigment produced by skin cells. It determines how light or dark our skin appears.
Skin lightening creams contain ingredients that work to decrease your body’s production of melanin. Melanin is made by cells called melanocytes. Bleaching products work by lowering the number of melanocytes in your skin.
Many skin lightening creams contain hydroquinone, which is known to decrease melanocytes.
Vitamin C, also a common ingredient in skin lightening creams, is an antioxidant that is known to lower melanin production in our cells.
Glycolic acid, which is also found in many skin brightening creams, works as an exfoliant. It helps to brighten the skin by clearing away dead cells.
Retinoids, products derived from vitamin A, can also be used to lighten dark spots. They work by speeding up the turnover of surface skin cells. They can include retinol, adapalene gel, tazarotene, and tretinoin.
Before making your skin lighter, it's important to prevent your skin from turning darker in the first place. You can do this by using sunscreen, exfoliating regularly, and protecting your skin from environmental pollutants. Prevention is key since lightening your skin is often a lengthy and intensive process that can be avoided in the first place.
