The most common skin care product in women's cosmetic arsenal is skin bleaching cream. Women of all ages can be affected by skin discoloration, freckles, and birthmarks as well as sun damage, liver spots, freckles, and sun damage. They are not a health risk but ladies will do anything to get rid of them as soon as possible.
Although there are many safe and natural skin-whitening creams on the market today, a lack of information about active ingredients can cause skin damage as well as serious health problems.
Before you apply a skin whitening cream to your skin, it is important that you are familiar with all active ingredients. There are two types available on the market for skin whitening products: those that only contain plant-based components that keep your skin radiant and healthy (the ones you want to choose) and those that use harsh ingredients that can cause severe damage to your skin.
Here's a list of the most dangerous ingredients that you might find in shockingly many skin whitening creams.
1)Hydroquinone is known to cause cancer when used in high concentrations or in long-term, even in small doses. You will notice a gradual darkening of your skin if you stop using a skin lightener that contains hydroquinone. This is the most frustrating thing I can imagine!
2)Mercury – This is a dangerous ingredient in many skin bleachers and is easily absorbed through the skin. Mercury is toxic and nearly impossible to flush from your body. Mercury's high weight means that it will remain in your tissues and organs, causing everything from an allergic reaction to brain damage and kidney damage.
3)Mineral oils are carcinogenic. They can also dry out your skin and encourage premature skin aging.
4)Parabens, chemicals used in the cosmetic and food industries as preservatives, are widely used. Parabens act in the same way as the hormone estrogen, which can promote cell growth and cause cancer. Parabens are not harmful if you use them in "rinse-off", cosmetic products such as soaps.
