Are Skin Lightening Creams Right For You?

If you've ever wished that you could change the color of your skin, you're not alone. There are several things that can cause skin to get darker over time. Some of these factors include age spots, hormone-related discoloration, and frequent extended exposure to sunlight and acne scars. Sometimes, discoloration related to the sun is temporary and will resolve itself over time. However, some changes in color last longer. These types can often be improved with skin lightening lotion.

While shopping for these products, keep in mind that your skin color is tied to the amount of melanin that you have. Although genetics play a role in melanin production, environmental factors can, as well. Products that aim to lighten the skin do so by reducing the amount of melanin within a certain area of skin. These items are applied directly to the top layer of skin, and are frequently available in a lotion formula.

Many products emphasize convenience through blends that work while you sleep. Try Brown Spot Skin Lightening Night Cream from Reviva Labs. Made for all skin types, it can be used on any part of the body. Additionally, the Daggett & Ramsdell collection offers precise customization through skin whitening creams made for areas such as under the arms, and around the knees and elbows.

Before using any of these products, always read the label to make sure you’re not knowingly allergic to any of the ingredients. Most lightening lotions for the skin made in the United States use an active whitener called hydroquinone, and each mixture usually contains around two percent. If you have questions about creams that whiten the skin, talk to your dermatologist. They may even be able to recommend a specific brand that they’ve either used themselves or suggested to other patients.

If the characteristics of your skin color are bothersome, don’t ignore them any longer. Try a whitening product, today. Most options are not only easy to apply at home, but bring noticeable benefits over time.

Comments about Barielle Advanced Formula Porcelain Skin Whitening Cream, 70.8g/2.5oz:
I have used 3 tubes but didn't see any minor results. My skin has been severely exposed to the sun two years back causing dark spots here and there. I wasn't using sunblock back then so I guess why this cheap product won't work now.

I'm 42 with sensitive, reddish skin. This product immediately evens tone and smooths out old acne pigmentation. With monthly peels too, I've noticed an accelerated change. Everyone's skin is different, and while other products failed me, this one works!

Comments about Daggett & Ramsdell Healing Botanicals Fade Cream, 57g/2oz - For Oily Skin:
I found this brand as a close out at a drug store. The price was very inexpensive so I decided to try it. I saw almost immediate results and tried to find more. I use the lightening milk and fade cream on my arms and legs so I'm trying this for the face and neck. This product quickly absorbs in the skin and is very smooth. After using this I apply a sun screen. I would recommend it and hope this site will continue to have this brand available. Ex Sun Goddess

Comments about Daggett & Ramsdell Healing Botanicals Fade Cream, 57g/2oz - For Oily Skin:
i use it two times daily morning and evening i like the fact it really makes my skin soft and silky. i don't like the fact it comes in really small tubes and small amounts. i love if the product is produced in large amounts. i wish i new it was much bigger.

I use it everyday.

Comments about Concha Nacar de Perlop Natural Bleach Cream #3 Original Formula, 2.0 oz:
I use this crema everyday in the morning for the past 6 years. It is a mask that you apply for 30 mins to an hour. It has a warming effect on your skin and it opens pores. Every time that I use the cream I see a noticeable improvement in my skin's texture and my pores. I have an overall glow... It helps diminish blemishes that arise. After I use it I jump in the shower and use noxzema (original formula). This helps close up the pores with the cooling eucalyptus oil and it brings back some moisture to my skin.... I LOVE IT!

It works!!!

Comments about Barielle Advanced Formula Porcelain Skin Whitening Cream, 70.8g/2.5oz:
I used it on my neck which was black stained and nothing really worked before and in 5 days the results where noticeable. And in a month I actually didn't have to hide my neck anymore but I suggest continuous use.
