A couple years ago, I gave birth to my 3rd child. Looking in the mirror, I noticed melasma on my upper lip which made me looked like I had a mustache. It was embarrassing. I also had some brown patches on my forehead.
As my skin was sensitive, all these dark spots made my skin blotchy. I felt that my face was ruined.
I tried many dark spots correctors from famous brands like Murad, Clarins, and Clinique. However, I was very disappointed with the results.
At one time, I had considered hydroquinone cream to treat melasma. However, I was hesitant to use it because of the risk of cancer and ochronosis, a permanent skin discoloration.
I thought that a good natural skin lightening cream would be better. However, could it get rid of my dark spots? I could not simply use any skin care product because of my sensitive skin. I was afraid my skin could react badly if I put some unknown ingredients on my skin. I wouldn’t want my skin to feel dry or burn.
If I were to use natural bleaching products for my melasma, I would want them to free of side effects. Maybe using plant-based lightening agents would not cause skin irritation. After much research, I learned that kojic acid, arbutin, and licorice extract had the potency to control the melanin production naturally. By reducing melanin in the skin, my brown spots should become lighter.
My melasma was not completely gone but I was happy with the fading effects so far. When people that I knew saw me, they made comments about my glowing look.With regular use, I should see less of these dark patches on my face.
When it comes to melasma fading, always check the labels. It pays to know the ingredients. Many dark spot correcting products use potential irritants. If you want something safe, you should look for the best natural skin lightening cream. Make sure it it is made in United States. Unlike other unfamiliar brands or imported hyperpigmentation treatment creams, at least it doesn’t contain mercury, a widely used bleaching agents besides hydroquinone. I always value good skin care products that are friendly to my skin and deliver positive results.
Another thing when treating hyperpigmentation, wearing sunscreen is mandatory. If you want best results from skin whitening creams, you must protect your skin from the sun. You should use sunscreen even when it is cloudy.
