Whenever I go to market, a moisturizer and a sunscreen lotion is a must pick for me. I don’t use fairness lotions, but a lot of people have a perception that fairness creams help them to enhance their complexion and offer them radiant and trouble-free skin.
Though, I do not hesitate to do research on my behalf and have explored a few facts about the fairness creams available on the market.
- If you are not aware, let me tell you that most of the fairness creams contain bleaching agents. If the content of the bleaching agents present in these creams exceeds the level considered as safe, it may leave a harmful effect on the skin over time. Also, the long-term usage of these creams may pose serious health issues. In rare cases, it may cause skin cancer too.
- None of the fairness creams can change the actual complexion of a person. All of these creams provides temporary results so that the user gets addicted to the product.
- Many creams contain harmful ingredients like mercury that may cause abdominal pain, increased thirst, constipation and other skin problems. In many instances, it may result in severe allergies.
The manufacturers of these beauty products claim that they use anti-aging ingredients and sun protection formula in the manufacturing process of these products that is quite safe on the epidermis.
I feel that there is no harm in using any of the fairness cream if it contains ingredients that are safe on skin. The best alternative would be to opt for some natural formula that ensures fair, radiant, and youthful skin. It’s better to consider using an Ayurvedic cream or a lotion known for providing clean and clear skin.
We can always think of giving a try to home-made beauty recipes. Ingredients like turmeric, sandalwood, coconut water, saffron, gram flour and honey are known as the natural skin cleansers and moisturizers. These elements can also enhance the complexion of a person if applied on the skin regularly.
