Skin lightening is the process of reducing the appearance of dark skin, or a tan. It can be done by using skin lightening creams, lotions, soaps or other topical agents that contain alpha-hydroxy acids, hydroquinone (HQ), kojic acid, licorice extract, arbutin, ascorbic acid and azelaic acid.
There are also products that have Vitamin C or Vitamin A in them, which can help to even out your skin tone and make you look more radiant.
We all have dark spots on our skin, which can be caused by a variety of things. It is important to find the right skin lightener product for you, as there are different options for different skin types.
Skin Lightening Creams are a great option if you have dry or sensitive skin and don't want to use anything too harsh on your skin. They work by reducing the production of melanin in your body, which causes your skin to look lighter and more even toned.
Skin Brightening Serums are a great option if you have oily or acne prone skin because they contain less oils than a cream would and won't clog up your pores like some creams do either. They work by using Vitamin C or Vitamin C derivatives and increasing the production of collagen in your body, which brightens the skin.
Skin Lightening Treatments are great for treating a dark or tanned face or any other body parts that need lightening. They work by using lightening agents like micronized Laminine to increase melanin production and reduce dark pigmentation of skin
Laser Treatments are used to treat dark spots and blemishes on the face, chest, and back by using laser light to decrease the pigment in melanocytes.
Before buying a skin lightening cream or treatment, it is important to know what type of skin you have and what kind of product will work best for you.
I suffer from dark spots and marks on my face. I had a skin brightening package at Love Skin And Hair which included a hydrafacial treatment and a take home skin care package specific for skin brightening which really helped my spots fade away.
