If you have dark spots on your skin, you may use make up to conceal them. But you may make it worse if you slather your skin with layers of foundation or powder. Thick layers of make up can cause clogging of pores. If you think they will make you look younger, then obviously you have not looked into the mirror close enough. Oftentimes, they make you look older.
The next best option is to use a skin whitener. But it is never easy to identify the best skin lightening cream.
Should You Apply Toxins On Your Skin?
Most women want fast lightening. They resort to harmful ingredients such as steroid and mercury. There are risks of developing fatal medical conditions associated with these ingredients. Long-term use of toxins can lead to cancer.
Hardcore skin bleaching products usually contain mercury as it can interrupt the production of melanin. However as a toxin, it is known to cause kidney failures, eczema, severe pigmentation, serious psychiatric and neurological disorders. If you are pregnant, it it likely that you will pass the mercury to your baby. In U.S., mercury is no longer used in skin whitening products. But some skin care products produced elsewhere may contain mercury. It is estimated that one out of every four skin lighteners from Asia which is sold in the U.S. contains mercury.
Some dark spot removal creams contain steroid. Long-term usage of steroid can make your skin thin, losing its elasticity. You probably have seen those who used steroid based creams; they have veins or stretch marks popping out of their skin. Also, steroids may increase risk for skin infections and delay wound healing.
Another popular ingredient used in dark spot correctors is hydroquinone. According to Dr Jacobs of the FDA, hydroquinone is mutagenic, clastogenic and immunotoxic. Too much hydroquinone can cause irreversible skin discoloration. Today, you can still find some over the counter brown spot removers with low concentration (2%) of hydroquinone. If you want a higher concentration (4%), then you need a prescription.
One major concern with these hazardous ingredients is that they will make your skin darker once you stop using them. Your skin will look horrible.
So what is the first thing to look for when shopping for the best dark spot remover?
It should not contain any toxins such as steroid, hydroquinone or mercury. Instead, look for safe lightening acids such as kojic acid, lactic acid, and glycolic acid. Based on the information obtained from the University of Maryland Medical Center, apart from being effective skin lightening ingredients, these natural whitening acids increase the production of collagen, making your skin more elastic.
If you choose the wrong cream for your brown spots, you may damage your skin. That is why we highly recommend Meladerm for hyperpigmentation.
Meladerm is free of any harsh chemicals such as hydroquinone, mercury, steroid and even parabens, which are commonly found in skin care products.
It works effectively against all forms of hyperpigmentation. You need to understand the mechanism of how to stop the development of dark spots. In your skin, you will find melanin. It is a color pigment. The more melanin you have, the darker your skin will be.
The production of melanin takes place in cells known as melanosomes, which are found in the deeper layers of your epidermis. These cells require tyrosinase, turning tyrosine into melanin. So when the production of melanin goes into hyperdrive, you will see the appearance of dark or brown spots. In order to prevent the overproduction of melanin, you need something that can penetrate beneath the epidermis, reaching melanosomes and stop the enzymatic activity of tyrosinase. That way your skin tone will be more even.
Meladerm contains 9 natural tyrosinase activity inhibitors namely Alpha Arbutin, Tego Cosmo C, Gigawhite, Kojic Acid, Licorice Extract, Niacinamide, Mulberry Extract, Bearberry Extract (Beta Arbutin), and Vitamin C. The penetration into melanosomes is possible because the exfoliating effect of glycolic acid and lactic acid and the unique formulation of the base ingredients which provides maximum absorption.
But do these ingredients actually work in fading dark spots? A study was conducted on alpha-arbutin and kojic acid. After one month of usage, it showed that these two ingredients worked faster and with better results than hydroquinone. That is why Meladerm is the best dark spot corrector.
Civant SkinCare also ensures that the maximum effectiveness of Meladerm is not compromised. Using airless pump retains the quality of the product.
Although Meladerm is safe to use, and works on all skin types but there is no guarantee that you will experience similar results. Simply because everyone’s skin type and condition is different. So, it is common to find some people who complain about Meladerm not being an effective skin brightener. If you don’t see results within 30 days, then you can request for a refund.
If you use the right dark spot remover, it should not damage your skin. Using a skin bleaching cream with natural ingredients in place of toxic compounds is obviously a great choice.
Meladerm is giving you the answer to skin discoloration – a better choice than hydroquinone-based creams or other over-the-counter skin whiteners.
