What You Need to Know About Skin Whitening

Skin whitening can be of great cosmetic assistance when done safely. Many people experience uneven tones on noticeable skin areas, such as the face. This can be due to genetics or a variety of skin conditions, such as melasma. In some cases, traditional foundation products do not provide sufficient cloaking for a truly even complexion. This is when skin whitening can be a cosmetic advantage. Just remember to be smart and stay safe, and you will be on your way to beautiful, even-toned skin.

What Skin Whitening Products Do

The pigment melanin is involved in creating skin, eye and hair color. Many people experience too much melanin production, which shows up in uneven skin tone and darker patches on various areas of the body. Skin whitening products work to reduce or block melanin production, and inhibit the enzyme that kicks off the melanin process.

Two of the most popular ingredients in skin whitening beauty products are glutathione and metathione. These are powerful antioxidants that occur naturally in the body, so using skin whitening products with these antioxidants as the primary whitening agents means that you are taking steps to an even-toned complexion in a safer, less damaging manner than some of the more caustic bleaching beauty products.

Glutathione nourishes and repairs your skin, working to:

  • Give skin a radiant glow
  • Reduce the appearance of pores
  • Produce anti-aging results
  • Improve skin hyperpigmentations
  • Make skin smoother and clearer

As you can see, with all of these great skin benefits glutathione has to offer, it follows that skin whitening beauty products would employ greater concentrations of this naturally occurring and very powerful antioxidant to help people achieve even skin tone.

Metathione is a type of glutathione and is, therefore, also a powerful antioxidant that naturally occurs in the body. Metathione helps to repair the cells that get damaged due to the type of environment we live in, such as smoggy cities, the water we drink and the chemicals and pesticides we are exposed to in food. This repair ability translates to a fantastic beauty benefit thanks to these antioxidants’ ability to repair damaged areas and to lighten problem skin patches.

Other common skin whitening beauty products contain various bleaching agents. Many people are attracted to the bleaching products because they sometimes can produce fast results. Bleaching products contain various types of acid (the type of acid depends on the bleaching beauty product brand) that strips away your old skin to expose the new skin underneath. Bleaching products may contain a sunscreen component to protect your new skin from being damaged before it has had a chance to develop defenses.

If you choose a bleaching method, be prepared to experience slight itching where the bleach is applied, skin dryness and peeling dry skin. While bleaching products can produce great results, there is also the risk of short-term and long-term skin damage as a result of using too much bleach or not the right type of product for your skin. Always consult a dermatologist before deciding on a skin whitening regimen.

Honour the Most Beautiful Woman – Happy Mother’s Day!

In 1912, Anna Jarvis created Mother’s day as a day for each family to honor its mother. She trademarked the phrases “second Sunday in May” and “Mother’s Day”, and created the Mother’s Day International Association.

She was specific about the location of the apostrophe; it was to be a singular possessive, for each family to honour their mother, not a plural possessive commemorating all mothers in the world.

On Mother’s Day we honour the woman who nurtures our family, leads us to our first day of school, and shares in each achievement. She is the superwoman of the household.

Make sure you Mom knows how much you love and appreciate her. Make her breakfast in bed, take her out for lunch. Send her a special gift today! Click here.

This Mother’s Day, be sure to treat her extra special.
