Celebrities And Skin Whitening

Some skin problems can be disturbing for many people in various ways such as by lowering their self-esteem and confidence. The decision to bleach one's skin is usually highly influenced by skin problems of one kind or another, or it can be cultural stereotypes or ideas of beauty. 

Vitiligo is one of the skin complications that affects skin pigmentation and can be solved by lightening your skin. One of the most famous celebrities to publicly whiten their skin was Michael Jackson, who had terrible patches of white skin, or skin without pigment. 

He used a cream containing hydroquinone, although we now know that there are serious side effects from using that chemical long term such as bruising, thickening of the skin, and other problems that the toxic chemical can cause when building up in your system. 

There are some who prefer consulting a dermatologist or a doctor before engaging in the skin whitening treatment process, although the standard prescription cream for vitiligo still contains hydroquinone in some countries like the USA, while other countries like the UK have banned the use of any products containing this as the active ingredient. 

It's actually better to use milder, non-prescription chemicals like alpha arbutin, glycolic acid and kojic acid to lighten your skin, which are the chemicals used as the active ingredients in the Tonique Skin Care Range

Celebrities Who Whiten Their Skin

Many famous and prominent individuals "allegedly" whiten their skin because studies in the entertainment industry have shown that very dark skinned people might have less fans or people tuning in to watch their show. 

These famous people include Beyonce, Rihanna, Nicki Minaj, Tempest Bledsoe, (from the Cosby Show), as well as rappers, baseball players, TV show hosts, it's quite a common thing in Hollywood. 

Most of these celebrities go to expensive cosmetic surgeries to get the treatments done, and these can cost anywhere from hundreds to thousands of dollars at a time, depending on who you go see. 

However, you can do the same quality treatment yourself at home, so long as you get buy from a reputable company whose products are FDA approved, using chemicals that have been shown to work over many years. 

Good examples of FDA approved products are those sold by the American company Tonique Skin Care. Tonique is a highly reputable company that specialises in skin whitening products that have been selling online for over a decade to people around the world. 

If you want to lighten your skin, but don't know where to start, you can contact Tonique via for a recommendation of the best products and treatment for your individual skin. It may be helpful to attach a photo of yourself to get the best advice.

It does not require a miracle for you to achieve great results just like any of the celebrities out there. You just have to use the right product and follow the instructions then wait for wonders to happen, which should begin to happen in a few days of using their products. If you don't like the results, simply stop using it, and your skin will return to it's natural color.
