What You Need to Know About Skin Bleaching

Skin bleaching can improve your complexion if used correctly

Skin bleaching can help you achieve an even, smooth skin tone, especially for complexions that suffer from dark spots, freckles and age spots. Nowadays you do not need to visit a dermatologist to get the results you want from skin bleaching. There are now over the counter skin lightening and brightening creams you can use every day to get clear, glowing skin.

Skin Bleaching Helps Skin Discoloration
Although there is more than one cause for skin discoloration, skin bleaching can typically take care of all forms. Skin discoloration can stem from skin inflammation due to an allergic reaction, hormone imbalance, or even overexposure to the sun. Preventative treatments such as SPF face creams and soothing skin care products can help calm skin. However, if discoloration is already present, then you may want to try skin bleaching.

Skin Bleaching: Basic Information
The good news for treating dark sports is that regardless of the cause, you should remember a few basic things about skin bleaching.

  • Currently the FDA recognizes hydroquinone as a “bleaching agent,” therefore, other ingredients such as the ones used in Aloette’s skin care products like Lumitone, are referred to as lighteners or brighteners, but they will still produce the same desired result.
  • Skin bleaching agents should only be used in the areas of the skin that need to be lightened. Avoid applying these agents to other parts of your skin since the use of skin bleaching agents on normal skin will slowly lighten the regular skin tone as well.
  • After undergoing skin bleaching it is important to use a face or skin lotion that contains SPF to protect treated skin from sun damage. Prolonged exposure to the sun may darken the areas that you lightened.

Here are a few skin lightening products offered by Aloette:
