Chemicals! Chemicals! Chemicals! Any beauty product cannot do without them. Don’t go by the label – they may say that a particular chemical is present in a very low concentration, but even that small amount can prove to be harmful for your skin and overall health. Sometimes, it is not the ingredient of a product but its preservatives that effect you negatively.
As far as skin lightening creams are concerned, research suggests that certain key ingredients present in these products not only have minor side effects like skin irritation and redness, but may also be the cause of skin cancer. Do you not wonder why hydroquinone, which was believed to be the perfect solution for hyperpigmentation, is now banned in some countries? Even the best known treatments can prove to be toxic, which is why it is wise to turn to natural elements for care and protection of your skin.
Natural ingredients, such as lemon juice, work just as effectively to give you a fairer skin tone, but minus the side effects. Lemon juice may slightly sting those with a sensitive skin. However, even they can rest assured that it will definitely not burn their skin or cause irreversible damage.
Besides serving as a wonderful moisturizer, tomatoes also promote collagen, which maintains the elasticity of your skin and keeps wrinkles at bay. As compared to the chemical products that guarantee to boost your collagen production, tomatoes do not produce patchy spots or lead to skin thinning.
Milk, honey, strawberry, papaya can all enhance your skin’s glow, reduce age spots, lessen skin discoloration, drive away fine lines and wrinkles and eventually, give you a much lighter and smoother skin tone. Mercury promises this too, but at what cost? Liver damage, kidney failure and birth defects!
Everyone wants to experience the happiness that a beautiful skin provides. But resorting to chemicals in desperation will only harm you in the long haul. Therefore, take the natural path to beauty and wellness!
