Safe Skin Whitening Treatments

skin whitening methodsFor many years now, people have whitened their skins through bleaching, and although that is not news, the methods used have changed.

Despite their effects being slow, some people prefer herbal or homemade skin lightening methods. In countries where regulations are less strict, people have been buying creams containing certain dangerous chemicals, which bleach skin faster although they have really negative side effects.

It is advisable to use natural bleaching products, or chemicals that have been approved by a regulation body such as the FDA, as they won’t affect the user’s skin.

When choosing a brand, make sure it does not contain harmful chemicals such as mercury or hydroquinone, and you should never use a bleaching product if it involves swallowing pills.

Though we can’t name the companies who make products containing mercury for legal reasons, most of them originate from either Asia or Africa, and so it’s better to look for a brand made in the USA.

Hydroquinone is even found in creams available on a doctor’s prescription, although in many countries, all products containing that chemical are banned, as it has negative side effects such as bruising and thickening of the skin.

The Best Chemicals To Use

Tonique Skin Care manufacture well formulated skin bleaching products containing active ingredients such as arbutin and glycolic acid.

They use FDA approved chemicals which even when used for long periods do not affect the user’s health. These chemicals if used according to instructions are very effective, and work to gradually lighten the skin tone, with the effects being fully reversible, just by discontinuing use.

People have different skin tones which respond differently, as a result, the volume of bleaching chemicals applied and the method of application will vary from one person to the other.

The Tonique Skin Care products have no negative side effects; you can apply to your entire body until you achieve the desired results.

You should adhere to safety measures discussed on the site to minimize chances of the cream coming into contact with eyes since it’s a very powerful chemical cocktail, and it can affect your eyesight if you get a lot in eyes.

Apart from the eyes and other sensitive parts, you can apply the cream over the whole body, or just to one specific area such as the face or hands.

How To Apply Safely

First, you want to work out which part of the body you intend to bleach. If you have a dark skin tone, it is advisable to bleach the whole body to avoid having uneven skin with black and brown spots which would reveal how the cream was applied.

If you have a light skin tone, it is often unnecessary to apply the cream to the whole body, since the effects might not be as visible on you, so you can apply it to only the areas which need bleaching, such as to the area of a birthmark, or over the whole face to cover freckles.

In case you want to bleach the whole body, take care to avoid sensitive parts such as around the eyes and mucus membranes like the inside of the nose, it’s best to do those areas separately, so you can carefully apply up to the edges.

If your eyes come into direct contact with the bleaching cream, it is painful and irritating, and you should flush with water immediately, and in case your skin on any other part hurts when the cream is applied, you should not continue use, at least not on that area.

After applying the cream on your body, leave it for around thirty minutes or longer, you may see that the effects are visible immediately while for others, it may take a few days.

It is important to understand that the effects of the products on the Tonique site are not permanent. After skin cells die, they peel off and are replaced by new cells growing underneath, and the original dark skin re-appears again. To maintain the new skin color, it is advisable to reapply the bleaching cream after every three or four weeks, or earlier if you want to get a fully white skin color.
