The craving for having whiter skin is not just a rage as proven by history because it has been observed to be intensely entrenched in the human mind as well as culture. To satisfy the incredible demand, so many products and gadgets are flooding the market; this makes people confused so they desperately need skin lightening tips. If the clamor is not waning, we must learn how to decide well. It may be helpful to consider the following tips:


Skin lightening chemicals or products manufactured by drug companies generally inhibits production of melanin thus leaves users without protection against UV radiation. Protect your skin with a sunblock; otherwise, do not go out. The skin sensitivity is heightened with use of the said chemicals as well as susceptibility to sun’s damage.


Remember to dig information about the product, composition, side effects, price, etc. when the choice is being made. Read the labels in the jars, bottles and promotional materials. Surf the web to find out more. Try to find out if it addresses your concern, if you can afford it, what are the requisites and expectation. Do not get into anything blindly.


Wait for some time to see if positive results would be visible given enough time. Be patient, give time for effects to show. There are products that need 30 to 90 days before some visible effects may be observed. Miracle products are almost too good to be true.


Vitamin C, in the ascorbyl form, can inhibit melanin formation in skin cells (melanin causes skin darkening) and thus regular uptake can cause skin lightening. Over and above this, Vitamin C boosts immune systems, enhances collagen synthesis, and activates vitamin E that offers protection to the body against antioxidants.


The choice for many natural products is extensive depending on the need and preference of the consumer. Be on guard with regards harmful additives in skin lightening products you buy. However, if the schedule restrain you from doing all the preparations needed when using the natural ingredients, try using commercial products that have natural ingredients.


To have a skin-to-die-for have a diet that is balanced and nutritious. Ensure that the diet is loaded with fibers from fruits and vegetables which are also sources of AHAs (alpha hydroxy acid). Have enough water.


It is alright to join the bandwagon and go for fairer skin. Just do it right. Stick to this skin lightening tips.

2. How to scrub skin
To slough off old, dead skin cells, use natural ingredients that are rough to the touch like sugar or dried orange rind that is ground and mixed with some liquid substance like honey, yoghurt,milk for dry skin;however, lemon extract is suitable for oily skin.

3. How to apply facial and body mask
Masks are applied and left on the face or body as long as necessary because the primary purpose of masks are to nourish the skin. The ingredients must be selected depending on the skin texture and purpose. There are many possible choices that can be mixed and matched. Some examples are: yoghurt, lemon juice, orange juice, honey, almonds, tomato, cucumber, chamomile flowers. For dry skin, natural oils from olives, castor and almond may be added. Adding mint to the mixture makes it stimulating.

Skin Lightening Procedures

Having a fair complexion is pursued by many individuals with a great zeal. The range of skin lightening procedures is wide from use of safe and conventional home remedies to bleaching, chemical peels, dermabrasion, laser skin resurfacing. What is puzzling is the intensity of the desire to have a lighter skin that is almost akin to obssession.

Home remedies are still widely preferred because it is safe, unobtrusive and relatively inexpensive. The preference is due to the safety it offers. The amount of preparation is quite tedious and the effects take time to come by unlike other methods. These are the weaknesses that work against the use of homemade products.

Bleaching is a chemical-based approach. Bleaching agents are useful in minimizing the discoloration of small blotchy spots. There are, however, those who apply it so generously all over the body to achieve wide scale body whitening. This is bothering as many bleaching agents are carcinogenic or cancer-causing. What is more alarming is the unregulated sale of these products thus making it very easy to access.

Aging, exposure to sun, pregnancy and genetics contribute to wrinkling and pigmentation that can be removed using chemical peels. The skin whitening procedure is done by applying a medicated facial mask that is removed after awhile. This procedure is more costly than bleaching so evaluation is required.

Dermabrasion is alternatively called surgical skin planing. It is a procedure that entails the use of brush or diamond wheel called burr or fraise. The process can make the skin bleed but eventually replaced by new skin cells with smoother look. The depth that can be penetrated will depend on the how coarse the burr is, and how intense and how much pressure is being applied.

Laser skin resurfacing is a procedure which allows the underlying skin to resurface be removing the old, dry and wrinkled skin. This skin lightening procedure makes use of laser light with a high-intensity programmed for penetration at different levels. Deep penetration of laser light is needed to eradicate wrinkles, acne scars and unwanted hairs.
