What Is The Difference Between Skin Lightening And Skin Bleaching?

Skin whitening treatments work by reducing the content of melanin of the skin.

Many active ingredients have been shown to be effective in skin whitening; some have beneficial side effects (e.g.: are antioxidants and nutrients); some are not totally safe (for example, those containing mercury).

The term bleaching generally refers to the use of products with aggressive whitening agents. In other words, those that contain ingredients such as mercury, steroids and hydroquinone. Hydroquinone is not available without a prescription in Europe.

While skin lighteners are considered to be the products made from safer, natural ingredients with the aim of gently lightening the skin by up to a few shades. Usually used for lightening complexion, fading age spots and scars.

Should I Exfoliate My Skin Before Using A Lightening Product?

Removing the dead cells from the surface of your skin (exfoliating) will indeed help to speed up the lightening process, however it will also make your skin more sensitive. So, special care needs to be taken; for instance you should use a very delicate exfoliating product, so that you don’t irritate or break your skin.

Should I Use Sunscreen With Lightening Products?

If you use a lightening cream on any part of your body that will be exposed the sun, you should definitely use a SPF sunscreen on the exposed area. Lightening creams block the production of melanin and it is melanin that gives your skin some resistance to the sun, therefore your skin will be more sun sensitive.
