I am not looking for skin whitening products and I could never honestly tell you which ones work because I would never use them. I am just recently learning how to darken my skin without chemical laden products or harmful UV rays!
So, while I am no expert on skin whitening creams, I did run by a popular skin care forum (that shall remain nameless) that does seem to have an expert of sorts on the “skin whitening” epidemic.
About six months ago I joined a popular skin care forum. It didn’t take me long to realize that there was one expert dishing out tons of advice on skin whitening products. This so called expert was and still is giving advice on every whitening cream and skin whitening treatment, including which prescription medication creams to use, the combination of products to use and how much to use, etc. So this guy must be an esthetician or doctor or at least he has worked in a salon to get his training. Right? Wrong.
Six months ago his profile listed him as a 27 year old wannabe pharmacist, not to mention he is a gorgeous white male. So how does this guy, who looks like he would never have to use a skin whitening cream in his life with no formal training get away with giving advice on how to whiten your skin? I am thinking I may not have been the only one asking this question as his detailed profile is no longer available.
Shouldn’t people be asking “how do you know all this stuff?” before they slather their skin with skin whitening products that could be potentially harmful?
Here are a couple of questions left on the forum for said expert:
Hi! How are you? I need help, I’ve been using the Retin A/H regime but know after 2 month i have develop after a bad eczema in my arms and chest and also very dry skin all over but too much. I realize that i cannot tolerate retin a plus hidroquinone. I did try sepiwhite and also did awful stuff to my skin. I was wondering if you can recommend me a skin lotion for all my body that is good for sensitive skin yet effective….. I dont want chulk white complexion, I have uneveness and dark patches on my body plus dry skin, i want to be lighter but I will love more like a brightening lotion that gives me a shiny glow rather than radical white complexion.
I need your help, I have facial hair due to taking meds, I use to get laser which worked but I’m back in school and have to cut down, I wax and tweeze but the problem is that I have ingrown hairs and darks spots from it. Recently I started using Vaniqua, ( to early to know if it’s working) but my question is, I use the carotein fairness gel,and clovate fast acting get not the steroid but the one made by techopharma the active ingredient is suppose to be alpha arbutin. Will this affect how it works? Also it I decide to use hydroquinone on my face will this be a problem
ohhhh….i see..thxx….also, what brand of MSM (Methylsulfonylmethane) pills do you recommend? Currently, I have been using Thienna for almost a year now and my skin has lightened approximately 2-3 shades of using it after 6 months.
I am a natural skin care advocate so no, I would never recommend anything but natural skin whitening products and unfortunately for some of you, that is not enough. I understand that. But really, people are destroying their natural skin by using the wrong combination of skin whitening products, potions, lotions, and pills.
People react differently to the same products. It may not happen immediately but from some of the posts I have read, some have seriously damaged their skin for life over time from using whitening creams, hydroquinone creams and other nasty chemical laden products. There are safe natural skin whitening products on the market today that may take longer but are far safer for you in the long run.
Be careful people. Very careful. Will natural skin whitening creams give you the riduculous results you are searching for? More than likely, not as quick as you’d like. At the very least, you will be guaranteed that your face won’t fall off in a few years.
