The decision on how to bleach your skin is a very personal one and needs lots of research and careful consideration.
Sometimes the choice is influenced by societal norms, which may imply that a lighter skin tone is more attractive than a darker one.
But besides this, you may perhaps be breaking the bank purchasing and using copious amounts of makeup to cover acne spots, blemishes or an unattractive uneven skin tone.
Hiving off an hour of your morning rush hour time to put on layers of makeup to cover blemishes, may not be everyone’s cuppa tea. Am assuming it’s not yours either, right?
Well, in such a situation, then the go-to solution is to lighten those pesky spots and blemishes on your skin.
Other areas of the body that may require skin bleaching
Besides a toned skin, free of blemishes, spots, and scars that looks younger and lighter, there are other areas of the body too prone to hyperpigmentation.
One good example is your underarms.
The dark skin tone of the armpits is often caused by shaving, and will sometimes stop you from waving your arms in the air like you just don’t care.
This area too can be bleached safely, to eliminate the darkening and keep your underarms summer ready for those cute spaghetti tops that you love so much!
The more intimate areas of the body, like the genital and perineum area, the nipples and inner thighs tend to darken too, which may cause you some social discomfort.
Besides the highly sensitive nature of the skin around these intimate areas, it could bring you some measure of embarrassment to have to visit your spa and have them bleach these areas for you.
Wouldn’t it be wonderful if you could take on the dark pigmentation in the comfort of your own home?
How does skin bleaching work?
To bleach or whiten your skin, you need an agent that can reduce the melanin on your skin, which is the pigment that makes skin tones darker.
The melanin content of your skin is determined by your genetics, scarring and sun exposure.
A skin lightener will block the formation of melanin, albeit temporarily while in use, leaving your skin tone lighter.
How safe is skin bleaching?
It is essential to understand first that, melanin plays a vital role in keeping your skin safe from harmful UV rays.
So when undertaking skin bleaching, it is imperative to get informed on just how much you can lighten your skin tone, without it becoming hazardous to your health.
There are prescription and non-prescription bleaching alternatives, out there, and it is important to note that you do not need to see a dermatologist to bleach your skin.
The non-prescription products are adequate, and the trick is in purchasing safe skin bleaching alternatives, that you can use from the comfort of your home.
5 Common Methods of Skin Bleaching
1-Laser skin resurfacing
Lasers use high-intensity light energy to vaporize skin tissues, reducing the appearance of blemishes, scars, and wrinkles.
These low concentrated beams of light, removes the skin layer by layer, effectively decreasing hyperpigmentation and leaves a younger looking, lighter and tighter skin complexion.
This treatment is a surgical procedure and requires a dermatologist or plastic surgeon.
You may be required to undergo sedation or receive a local anesthetic for the procedure.
It has some risks too, including the risk of cold sores, infections, milia, cysts or more hyperpigmentation if the skin is exposed to the sun thereafter.
Laser skin bleaching is an expensive affair too, as it needs a qualified professional to perform it.
2-Chemical skin bleach
Peeling solutions that have alpha hydroxy acids are applied to your skin by a qualified physician, exfoliating the dark skin and hyperpigmentation.
The skin blisters and eventually peels off, stimulating the growth of fresh younger looking and lighter skin.
Possible risks include skin infections, cold sores or more hyperpigmentation if the treated skin is exposed to the sun, without protection.
In this skin lightening procedure, your skin will be blasted with microcrystals, which exfoliate the dead and dry outer skin layer.
This process exposes lighter, fresher skin, unaffected by hyperpigmentation.
Its risks include skin irritation, and while it can be done it home, it requires practice and excellent care.
Bleaching creams have fast acting active ingredients like hydroquinone, corticosteroids or mercury which while very effective at reduction of melanin on your skin, have somewhat disastrous health effects.
Today, these ingredients are actively regulated by most governments while others have been banned from use as skin care products.
The associated risks with these ingredients include links to cancer, toxicity to the body, rough and blotchy looking skin, grey/ blue pigmentation on the skin and as well as multiple organ failures.
5-Safe and natural skin bleaching methods.
These methods incorporate natural botanicals that are imbued with skin lightening properties, to produce a lighter and fresher skin tone with frequent usage.
These ingredients work more gently and are much slower than the methods as mentioned earlier, but are way safer and healthier to your skin.

Natural skin whiteners are very effective against hyperpigmentation and are safe for long-term use.
