Best Whitening Cream For Face – Keeping it Simple and Keeping it Safe

Trends in skin tone and color have waxed and waned throughout both history and modern society. In ancient China, women used lead based face cream to whiten their skin. In the Victorian era, women used arsenic powder on their faces to get a bone-white color, while in the 1980’s in America, women spent hours baking in the sun to get a sun bronzed glow. Once again, white skin is in, and people everywhere are looking for the best whitening cream for face lightening. There are many types of creams to choose from, so you need to educate yourself on what to use.

If you think a high-tech and modern product will be the best whitening cream for face use, then by all means, have at it! There are many innovative creams that use tyrosine, which is a natural pigment blocker, melanin blockers, which prevent darkening of skin, and often, naturally occurring citric acids that remove dead skin cells and refresh the skin. In addition, these new creams will often also contain high quality lotions, which will help sooth irritated or wrinkled skin. Be sure to avoid ingredients like mercury, which can be toxic, or harmful bleaching agents hydroquinone. Read ingredients carefully for best results.

If you are satisfied with your skin tone, but wish to remove age spots, acne scars, or just hyper-pigmented areas, then you can still find the best whitening cream for face toning. The creams and products on the market are often geared toward that specific purpose, and just removing darkened areas can give your face a younger and more attractive appearance. Many products can reduce the amount of melanin your body produces, which will allow the dark spots to fade and give a uniform skin tone on your face. With regular use, the dark spots can be kept at bay long-term.

If you do not need to remove spots, but instead wish to achieve whiter skin overall, the first line of defense against skin darkening is complete removal of sunlight. This can be prevented by covering the skin with hats and clothes, staying indoors, or using sun-block. The best skin whitening cream for face lightening should always include a good quality sun-block, as prevention is the best and safest way to keep a light complexion. To recap, the whitening cream should contain: non-toxic ingredients, sun-block, good quality moisturizer, and a gentle citric acid. This well-rounded approach should have safe and positive effects.
