Is skin whitening dangerous? The answer to this question depends on how you are going to go about the whole process, and particularly what chemicals you use. A clear understanding of the skin bleaching process can help you to avoid any danger associated with it.
There are some skin whitening products that pose a great health danger to their users especially if used for a very long time. Some of the most dangerous skin whitening creams are those that contain mercury and hydroquinone as their main active ingredients.
Previously, mercury and hydroquinone were widely used in many bleaching creams until they started raising health issues. Creams containing hydroquinone, for instance, are believed to cause a certain type of cancer, as well as ochronosis, a thickening and bruising of the skin.
Mercury, on the other hand, has its own side effects that include psychological defects, the Mad Hatter from Alice in Wonderland is based on what happened to hat makers who used mercury to set the hats.
You should also be careful with products from countries in Africa and Asia since most of them are not subjected to any form of regulation that ensures that they are safe and up to the health standards of the rest of the world.
It is advisable that you only go for products made by American companies since they are subjected to very strict regulations from the FDA, a fact that pretty much guarantees you quality and safety, to the highest standards in the world.
Some of the products that I recommend on this blog are those sold by Tonique Skin Care, an American company that specializes in skin care products. Being based in Maryland USA, Tonique is subject to FDA regulations thus their products have been confirmed to be safe and of high quality, and they’ve been selling to satisfied customers for over a decade, who have had plenty of time to leave their reviews online, the vast majority of which are positive.
There are other companies that make absurd claims that you can bleach your skin by taking an injection or swallowing a pill.
These claims are misleading since it has not been confirmed that these pills or injections really work, and they definitely don’t work as well as the combination of alpha arbutin, glycolic acid, sepiwhite FSH, and other proven chemicals used in the Tonique range of skin care products.
Skin gets lighter by reducing its pigmentation, or that’s one of the best methods, thus it’s very unnatural to try to remove skin pigmentation from inside out. Even if it were possible, it would definitely result in side effects.
Black market skin care creams are products that you should avoid like the plague as they are simply unreliable. Some of these black market products are offered at a cheaper price than the genuine products, but you should ask yourself why they are cheaper. You should remember that there are all kinds of products fake and genuine online thus you might end up getting very bad results from using a substandard product.
Safe skin lightening creams
Although there are some poor products in the online market, there also skin treatment creams that can give you amazing results.
Tonique Skin Care’s products are some of the best creams to go for since they have never disappointed anyone, and they don’t just deal in skin lightening, but also have a new range of anti-aging products that work wonders as well.
You need to know that skin lightening creams do not work the same way on different skin types. For instance people with extremely dark skin may have to apply more powerful bleaching creams or apply to their whole body, while light-skinned individuals will not need to apply very power bleaching creams, or can apply to a smaller area, like the face.
If you are a dark skinned person, you will have to apply skin whitening creams on the entire body so that you can have a uniform skin color, or it may seem very obvious that you have a very white face and very dark hands and feet.
