Skin Lightening Treatments

Skin Lightening Treatments - How To Make Your Skin Lighter Safely


In many different parts of the world, lighter skin is seen as a status symbol, or seen as being more beautiful to a man, (if you're a woman).

This isn't necessarily a racial thing, for example in China and India, it's seen as being a sign of wealth to have lighter skin, because the upper class women didn't have to work out in the fields, and so had much lighter skin.

It's a similar thing in the middle east, because the sun is very powerful, lighter skin was seen as a sign of belonging to a wealthy husband.

In the US, it's actually seen as more attractive to have white heritage mixed in if you are an African American, or at least pop stars and television personalities appear to get more fans if they have lighter skin.

For this reason stars like Beyonce, Rihanna, Nicki Minaj, and many more have undergone mild skin lightening treatments, because according to their agents, it just makes them more appealing to the American and worldwide audience, who are mostly lighter skinned.

It's not that people are racist, there is just an instinctual response to feel slightly uncomfortable when looking at someone who is different from what you are used to, or different from you.

Other Reasons Why People Use Skin Lightening Products

Anyway, there are many other reasons why people may want to bleach their skin. For example, Michael Jackson had a skin condition called hypo-pigmentation, which caused him large white patches on his skin.

In order to transform his entire body to a completely white complexion, he used a powerful prescription cream containing hydroquinone as the active ingredient.

It's not recommended you use this chemical for long periods of time, as it can cause nasty side effects.

The best chemicals to use for mild skin lightening are alpha arbutin, glycolic acid, kojic acid and sepiwhite FSH.
