Skin Lightening creams

Hello - I have recently purchased a range of skin lightening and brightening creams and lotions - 'The LIghter and Brighter age-resisting Ritual Collection' which I had read about. This appealed to me because it uses kojic acid which is a naturally occurring substance which lightens skin tone and helps pigmentation, sun damage and brown spots. It seems it is much safer and just as effective if not more so than products containint hydroquinone. I am just starting the regime but wondered if anyone else out there has used these products and if so how long before they saw results. I will of course keep you posted as to the results.

Re: Skin Lightening creams

Why is hydroquinone not safe?

Thumbs up Re: Skin Lightening creams

Hi

Iv used these products and they really do work. Need to use for a few weeks and you must wear a sunblock to prevent from getting dark again in the summer months.

I once used hydroquinone skin lightening cream, it worked to start with but then my skin went darker. I also found out that hydroquinone can cause skin cancer, so would never use again.

Best bet is to always use natural skin lightening products which do not have any side effects.

Good luck
