What to Think About Skin-Whitening

What You Need to Know About Skin Whitening – Part 3

In the prior segments of this series, we’ve gone over how skin whitening works and examples of the types of skin whitening beauty products available. Now it is time to talk about possibly the most important part: safety. While skin whitening treatments can produce fabulous results to give you that glowing, even-toned skin, if skin whitening is done wrong, you could potentially face both short- and long-term skin damage. Whether or not you are working with a dermatologist, you should not begin any skin whitening treatment without thoroughly researching the products and their effects.

What to Think About and What to Watch Out For

Some skin whitening treatments will promise fast results – and you will get them, but at severe long-term cost to your skin and health. An even complexion is not worth poisoning your body or causing permanent damage to your skin. Many of the safer skin whitening treatments are sometimes more expensive, so be sure you are prepared for the cost that comes with completing this process safely. If you cannot afford it, you may want to consider other options rather than do something harmful.

Some say the pills and other products that contain metathione and glutathione are better for you, because metathione and glutathione are powerful antioxidants that already occur in your body naturally. You will also likely find vitamin C being included in these products, as Vitamin C increases glutathione’s effectiveness.

Hydroquinone is a main ingredient in many skin-whitening products, and there is some debate about its safety. Some research indicates that, when used in a small dosage, complications arising from hydroquinone are minimal, so be sure you are not using a product with a high concentration of hydroquinone.

Be aware of the potential side effects of any skin-whitening product you are considering. Are the benefits of the product worth risking the side effects? For example, a common result of skin bleach is a condition called ocronosis, which is persistent acne.

Be aware of what the side effects actually entail. For example, say you are willing to risk ocronosis in order to get the lightened skin results bleaching offers. Would you feel the same if you knew that not only is it fairly common to develop ocronosis but that, thanks to ocronosis’ ability to drop into your dermis, it is very difficult to remove? By not only finding out what the side effects are, but also what those side effects actually mean to your skin in the short and long term, you will be better able to make an informed decision about which skin whitening beauty product to use.

This way, you hopefully will not be blindsided by any reactions or new problems that would have caused you to make different choices if you were aware of them prior to choosing a skin whitening product. This is also a great reason to consult a dermatologist, as these professionals will be aware of potential side effects and can help you understand what you can expect to experience on your safe quest to lightening problem skin areas and achieving that beautiful, even-toned complexion.

Most people considering skin whitening products and treatments are looking for an option that will provide fast results. It is only natural to want to correct areas of darker pigmentation and obtain an even complexion as quickly as possible. However, it is a far better course of action to take the time to fully understand the ingredients, potential results and possible side effects of each product you are considering. This will allow you to make an educated decision that will help you in achieving the lasting skin whitening you desire in a safe and effective manner.

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.
