Skin bleaching is the process of using items to lighten dark spots on the skin or to produce a lighter overall complexion. Bleaching creams, soaps, and pills, as well as professional treatments like chemical peels and laser therapy, are among these goods.


Skin bleaching is not good for your health. The results aren't certain, and there's evidence that skin whitening might cause major issues and side effects. Despite these facts, a 2005 poll found that 92 percent of Nigerian men and women who visited a skin clinic said they had used skin lightening creams for a long time to lighten and level out their skin tone, or to improve the appearance of their skin before a big event.


There is no need to lighten the skin from a medical aspect. However, if you're thinking about whitening your skin, you should be aware of the consequences.


How does skin whitening work?

Skin bleaching lowers the concentration or generation of melanin in the skin. Melanin is a pigment produced by melanocytes, which are skin cells. Genetics has a large role in determining the quantity of melanin in your skin. Melanin is more abundant in those with dark skin. Melanin production is also influenced by hormones, sunshine, and certain substances.


When you use a skin bleaching treatment like hydroquinone on your skin, it reduces the amount of melanocytes in your skin. This can result in skin that is lighter and more even in appearance.


When You Stop Using Bleaching Cream, What Happens?

When you quit bleaching, anecdotal evidence suggests that you will return to your original color. If you start using another product just after you finish bleaching, you can have dark knuckles and burns. However, there is a technique to stop it without getting black knuckles, and that is to let your skin alone for 1 to 2 weeks before using another cream. For 4-5 days, users reported skin dryness, roughness, and dead skin patches in various parts of their bodies until the skin returned to normal.
