Difference between whitening creams and lightening creams

Difference between skin lightening cream and whitening cream

Whitening and lightening creams are creams that lighten and whiten skin complexion while reducing dark spots, acne spots, and other unwanted darkness. Both creams perform the same functions but have their own pros and cons. Whitening creams can cause damage and make your face color change as compared to your body’s skin color. 

However, lightening creams show results within 2-4 weeks. Lightening creams work slowly. If you quit using lightening creams, it never causes damage to your skin. Also lightens skin stones and reduces unwanted darkness, sun spots, and dark spots safely. 

We are very concerned about our skin. Our skin becomes darker, has blemishes and spots due to sun exposure, hormones, genes, and other factors. There are various ways to maintain our skincare by using safe and naturally formulated creams.

Before using any skincare product, you should have knowledge about its function and how it is formulated. Also you must have a clear sense of skincare products. It is important to understand the terms used by skincare companies before putting skincare creams on your skin. Try to find the main causes of uneven skin tone and dark skin. 

Whitening Creams

Whitening creams are products designed to lighten our skin's dark areas and skin tone. Skin whitening products are available in the form of pills, scrubs, injections, and creams. Whitening creams are a preferred option for skincare. 

These products are necessary to reduce the melanin concentrations in our skin. Melanin protects our skin from the sun's ultraviolet rays. The other perspective of whitening creams is that they contain harmful ingredients. It's obvious that a cream which gives instant results can cause damage to your skin. There are many whitening creams in the market that contain mercury and other harmful chemicals which damage your skin. 

Removing our skin from its melanin can make our dermis very sensitive and susceptible to cellular damage from the elements.

These products do not protect skin in fact, if sun exposure occurs these creams can cause sunburn or sun damage because these creams make skin sensitive. These creams are effective but they are harmful. 

Our skin is chemically bleached beyond its natural skin tone when we whiten it. By using bleaching creams, we can also whiten our skin but have to be careful before these treatments, as they contain harmful chemicals that affect our skin.

Lightening Creams

Lightening creams play an important role in skincare. These creams work to the skin safely. These products target ‌melanin-producing cells. Melanin is a pigment-producing skin cell that determines dark and light skin color. Lightening creams are used all over the skin to treat age spots, sun spots, dark spots, acne spots, and protect skin from sunburn. It works as a shield under the sun, shield from harmful UV rays.

Dermatologists also recommend skin lightening creams for skin care because they contain natural ingredients, give long-lasting results and are safe for skin.

Skin lightening creams contain ingredients that work to reduce the melanin productions in our skin. Melanocytes are melanin cells responsible for skin color. Hydroquinone, which decreases the melanocytes in the skin. The multiple benefits of Vitamin C also helps in reducing melanin production in the skin. Skin lightening creams reduce dark spots, hyperpigmentation and brings out a natural glow and makes skin even toned. 

Is the lightening cream safe?

The basic aim of lightening cream is to remove dark spots by lessening melanin production in our skin. These creams have natural ingredients and are safe to use for as long. If you have a natural skin tone, it is still safe to use a lightening cream to prevent future hyperpigmentation.
