If you’re looking to lighten pigmentation marks on the face, there’s no safer way of doing in than with natural skin lightening creams. This article will explain why natural skin lightening products make such great treatments for skin pigmentation marks and what you should look for in the best ones.
Whether you have brown age spots or sunspots (solar lentigos), freckles (ephiledes), or just a darker skintone than you want, natural skin lightening creams should be able to brighten your skin. All of these skin pigmentation issues are causes by overexposure to the sun’s UV rays. To be specific, UVB rays are what cause your skin to burn and UVA rays are those that cause skin damage and aging. Both are not good for your skin though!
To protect you from any serious damage from the sun’s radiation, melanocytes in your skin produce pigments called melanin. Melanin pigment is what actually absorbs these UV rays, which in turn produces an area of darker colored skin. Depending on the amount and extend of exposure, this could result in discolored age spots or an overall skin tone that’s more dull and dark.
There are various types of skin discoloration treatments on the market today, but none of them are as safe as natural skin lightening creams. Other solutions involve the use of questionable chemicals and synthetic ingredients, and some require extended time for healing. Organic skin lightening creams are made with ingredients from nature and do not cause any harmful side effects.
Here are the kind of ingredients you should look for in an effective natural skin lightening cream:
*Nutgrass root extract has been shown to reduce melanin production in the skin by up to 40%, which is an ideal amount since the pigment is needed to protect the skin from occasional UV radiation.
*A sunscreen of some sort is needed to help block out both UVA and UVB radiation.
*Natural antioxidants to help protect your skin and neutralize free radicals before they cause skin damage.
