Go for Microdermabrasion

The process is used to remove damaged skin cells which leaves the skin healthier and free of age spots.

Use whitening creams

This is the most common method known to many. In fact, it almost becomes the first solution that comes to mind when ever we think of lightening or whitening the skin. There are many creams out there with many promises to whiten and lighten the skin in a jiffy and effectively but only few of them works. Besides what works for one skin may not work for the other. When it finally does, many times it tends to cause skin issues and damages due to ingredients and harmful product composition.

However, there are still a few others out there in the market which gives quick, effective and good results. You just may not be lucky to discover that cream almost immediately. You may just have to keep doing trial and error method until you finally meet the one best suited for your skin. And that is if you ever get the exact desired results.

In all you do, just avoid creams with hydroquinone and mercury. I cannot tell you how much damage this creams can cause and how much my skin has suffered from them. Those two can dry out skin, cause wrinkles, acnes and even stretch marks.

Use Whitening serum

  • Serums are very concentrated and have active ingredients that penetrates deeper layer of the skin to nourish it.
  • Serums restore moisture and elasticity and regulate oil production.
  • Serums are more concentrated than creams.
    Expect to get multiple dozes of ingredients and results from serum than what you get in creams.

So look no further for skin lightening and whitening.

Go for Chemical peels

This, I put in the last of the recommendations because I cannot go for it. It doesn’t mean there aren’t brave humans who do it because they know what they want and are strong enough to go for it.

  • Chemical peels are solutions like alpha hydroxy acids used on the skin to exfoliate and reduce pigmentation.
  • A chemical peel reveals a radiant, rejuvenated and whitened skin with lots of extra benefits.
  • Chemical peels reveals an even skin tone and wrinkles with a blemish free skin or go for way natural and safer ways to lighten the skin.
