Skin Bleaching Cream – Can Skin Bleaching Creams Cause Serious Damage to Your Skin?

Skin bleaching cream is probably one of the most popular skin care products in many women’s cosmetic arsenal. Skin discoloration, blemishes, acne scars, sun damage, liver spots, freckles, birth marks on your skin could become a big problem for women of any age. Although they do not present any health risk, ladies are willing to do almost anything to wipe them off their skin as quickly as possible.

While safe and natural skin whitening creams are widely available on the market, lack of knowledge about their active ingredients can lead to choosing a product that may cause serious damage your skin as well as your overall health.

What are dangerous ingredients found in many skin bleaching creams?

It is very important to know all the active components of your skin whitening cream before you start using it on your skin. There are two types of skin brightening products on the market: all-natural products that only use plant based components and keep your skin bright and radiant without posing any risk to your health (the ones that you do want to go for) and very harsh skin bleachers that use a wide range of dangerous ingredients that can cause serious damage to your health.

Here is a list of the most commonly used dangerous ingredients you can find in a shocking amount of skin whitening creams:

1) Hydroquinone – is known to cause cancer in higher concentration or after a long-term use even in smaller doses. If you use a skin brightener with hydroquinone, you will eventually notice that your skin will actually become darker as soon as you stop using it. I cannot imagine anything more frustrating than this!

2) Mercury – is a very dangerous element in many skin bleachers that is easily absorbed through your skin. Mercury is extremely toxic and almost impossible to flush out of your body. Because of its high weight mercury will stay in your organs and tissues causing anything from allergic reaction to brain and kidney damage.

3) Mineral oils – they are known to be carcinogenic. They also can dry your skin and promote premature skin aging.

4) Parabens are chemicals widely used as preservatives in food and cosmetic industry. Parabens are known to act like hormone estrogen which promotes cell growth, and therefore may cause the development of cancer. In “rinse-off” cosmetic products like soaps parabens can not cause much harm since they do not stay on your skin for too long. However, scientific research shows that in “stay-on” cosmetic products like skin brightening creams and lotions there might be a chance of cancer development caused by parabens.

If you are concerned about your health, my strong advice is to be very careful when you choose which skin bleaching cream to choose. Don’t trust your skin to unsafe skin bleachers – make wise choices and stay healthy and beautiful!
