How to Lighten Your Skin by Removing Sun Tan?

Whether you faked an illness at work and now need to replace your glowing just-at-the-beach tan or else you just want your porcelain white complexion back after a day outside, sometimes women just want to remove their tan and lighten their skin back up without experiencing any negative side effects. One of the latest products on the market for that purpose is called a skin brightener[1]. A skin brightener works by reducing the darker pigmented areas and by also turning over the new cell production at a faster rate, which will also encourage newer, lighter skin cells to pop up.

In addition to the lightening capabilities of these products, they also act as a really good exfoliant that will help bring a natural radiance to your skin. The exfoliant ingredients typically contain a form of vitamin C[2], which will slough off the dead skin cells and help regenerate a fresher complexion. Remember that even the best skin brightener cannot relieve all darkened pigment areas, especially birthmarks and you may need to get professional dermatological help for very dark pigment areas. It’s always best to try on a lighter mark to determine the effectiveness of the product.

Since there are literally hundreds of skin lightening products on the market, you can use a skin brighteners review website to help you sort through your options to find the best product for your specific skin needs. For example, some types of lightening products can be rather harsh on sensitive skin, so you may need to find a hypoallergenic formula instead. A skin brighteners review can help you see how other consumers fared with these products so you can avoid some of the pitfalls and reap some of the benefits without having to suffer for it.

When using your skin lightening product to remove your tan or just to lighten your skin overall, be sure to remember that this product can take several weeks to really make a difference so be prepared to have patience. In addition, you can facilitate the process by avoiding direct sunlight in the meantime and by using a good quality sun block that will prevent any more darkening of the skin. If you intent to remove a tan from your whole body rather than just your face, you might want to look over the skin brighteners review page to see if some products work better for the body skin instead.
