The Right Way to Choose a Face Whitening Cream


Beautiful is often interpreted as white and radiant facial skin. Therefore, almost every woman competes to use facial whitening cream, so that her skin looks like that.

Basically, face whitening works by slowing or inhibiting the production of melanin in the skin layer. Melanin itself is a pigment produced by melanocyte cells, and acts as the skin's natural defense against the adverse effects of ultraviolet light.

Choose the Right

Well, for those of you who want to look beautiful like Korean artists, pay attention to this when choosing and using face whitening:

1. Product content. Avoid using any cream without knowing its contents. The use of hydroquinone-containing face whitening creams requires doctor's supervision.

2. Made from natural ingredients. You are recommended to choose a face whitening cream that contains natural ingredients, such as arbutin, mulberry extract, kojic acid, licorice extract or vitamin C.

3. Avoid creams that contain mercury. Long-term exposure to mercury can cause kidney and nervous system damage. Another term used to refer to this hazardous material is mercury, mercurous chloride, mercuric, mercurio, or calomel.

4. According to skin type. If your skin is sensitive or easily irritated, you should choose a cream labeled hypoallergenic and free of alcohol.

For those of you who have oily or acne prone skin, choose a water based, and not sticky, face whitening cream.

5. Use sunscreen. In addition to facial whitening, also use sunscreen every day. Because the use of certain creams can make you more sensitive to sunlight.


Avoid using any whitening cream that claims to give instant results. Therefore, it is recommended that you consult your doctor before buying a face whitening cream.
