Skin Whitening

 

We all want a clear, clean and transparent complexion and that is exactly what skin whitening is all about. Blemish and freckle free, no discolorations and an even skin tone looks healthy and beautiful.

Itís also about un-doing the damage caused by harmful UV rays, environmental pollution, acne scarring and signs of aging. These factors can leave skin looking dull, yellow and discoloured.

Skin whitening works by reducing the production of melanin which is the pigment in your skin that is responsible for the darkening. It also absorbs UV rays to prevent the sun from darkening the skin.

There are many skin lightning, whitening and brightening products to choose from but there are only so many different ingredients that will provide a whiter, clearer complexion. Some of these ingredients include the following:

Aloe Vera - absorbs UV light and works to lighten the skin.

Kojic Acid - reduces the production of the skin pigment, melanin.

Licorice Extract - works to absorb both UVA and UVB rays. It also works as a depigmenting agent and inhibits the production of melanin.

Oxybenzone - a sunscreen which absorbs UVA rays.

Octyl salicylate - a sunscreen found in most sun tan lotions. This is the salt of the salicylic acid found in wintergreen leaves.

Octyl-p-methoxycinnamate - a sunscreen which works to prevent UV rays from darkening the skin.

* When it comes to using a product that is meant for diminishing discolorations you will find a few different terms. Skin bleaching, brightening, whitening, and lightening are all meant to provide the same results.
