Skin care is a regime that most of us are familiar with. We all want even and toned skin, but there are so many products to choose from! So, which skincare products should you use for lighter and brighter skin?
The Changing Face of Beauty
Skin care is no longer just a black and white thing, and nor is it for women only, either. More and more, men – and especially male celebrities and Hollywood stars such as George Clooney, Drake, Chris Pratt, and Pharrell Williams – are open and frank about their skincare routines, preferred products, and even their surgical enhancements (also known as “plastic surgery” procedures).
Celebrities help lessen stigma and hearsay about skin conditions by openly discussing their challenges and symptoms. In turn, this enables the rest of us to seek solutions to health problems we probably never would have considered before.
What Determines Skin Color?
The color of skin is determined by the amount of melanin in the skin, and is mostly due to genetic makeup. People with darker skin have more melanin than Caucasians.
Is it possible to make skin lighter and brighter?
Yes. There are several ways that skin color can be “lightened“ to reduce pigmentation issues, eliminate skin blemishes, lighten discoloration spots, and even your skin tone. Not all of these methods to lighten and brighten skin are safe or even effective.
Though used interchangeably when discussing skin tone and pigmentation issues, skin whitening, skin brightening, and skin lightening are actually three different methods of “evening” your skin tone.
- What is Skin Whitening?
Also known as skin bleaching, the rumours surrounding drastic skin color changes abound about celebrities like Beyoncé, Nicky Minaj, Lil Kim, and more. Designed to lighten skin tone to several shades lighter than those you have now, skin whitening is chemical-based and historically contained mercury or hydroquinone to inhibit the formation of melanin.
Inorganic mercury contained in skin lightening soaps and creams can lead to kidney damage, skin rashes, skin discolouration, irreversible scarring, feelings of anxiety or depression, and even peripheral neuropathy. Inorganic mercury is toxic to cells, if used for a long period of time in skin conditions like hyperpigmentation or premature ageing.
In addition, these so-called “miracle ingredients” stop working when you stop taking them, reversing the whitened-skin effect all those melanin-suppressants created. Skin whitening is thus a lifetime commitment once you start the process, and poses a life-threatening risk to your health and well-being, too.
- What is Skin Brightening?
Designed as a treatment that increases skin radiance, skin brightening works by removing dead skin cells to revitalize and rejuvenate tired skin. Examples of this include exfoliators and face scrubs.
Over-exfoliation can damage the skin’s natural barrier level and leave permanent scarring behind. In addition, generic exfoliating creams and lotions do not take individual skin conditions into account, often resulting in side effects, abrasions to the skin, and even chemical burning. Exfoliating the skin too often can also compromise the skin’s barrier function, leading to dehydrated skin and damaged capillaries.
- What is Skin Lightening?
Traditional creams and skin lightening supplements were designed as a treatment for uneven skin tone due to hyperpigmentation (such as sun damage) or everyday dark spots known as melasma (commonly seen in pregnancy and other hormone-related conditions).
Lightening creams are a popular but dangerous way to lighten the skin, and while it can work in the short term, lightening creams ultimately cause skin to darken further and more quickly than before, even resulting in additional patches and damaging skin further in the long term
At its worst, lightening creams can burn and scar skin and give an overall patchy discoloration across the face and body.
