Say NO to so-called FAIRNESS CREAMS and discard all the fairness creams you have bought because they are DAMAGING Your SKIN
The society has sadly set several beauty standards that by no mean define beauty in actual but still are believed as the beauty criterion. Amongst these “so-called” beauty standards, light skin tone or fair skin is the ultimate beauty a person can have. This is sad but it is true. Many people particularly women are willing to go a shade lighter at all costs without thinking twice of what could be at stake.
Nowadays, with increased awareness, dermatologists advise the people to avoid the use of fairness creams that contain steroids or fairness creams in general. These fairness creams are doing much harm than good; although they are advertised extremely safe and mild for the skin.
Fairness Creams Or Skin Whitening Creams Are Causing Skin Cancer, Allergies, Skin Rashes And Much More
Fairness creams are prepared with ingredients that may give temporary fair skin tone but in actual they are toxic for the skin as well as the body. Certain steroids, even in the most popular fairness creams can cause thinning of the skin, infections, allergies, breakouts or even skin cancer. The ingredients in these popular fairness creams can also cause itching and burning of the skin.
Some of the creams have immediate side-effects while some of the best fairness creams may have gradual and long term side-effects. Immediate or late side-effects and consequences, I don’t think getting only fair is worth risking your naturally beautiful skin. Many of the fairness creams have been banned and labeled illegal because of the presence of harmful ingredients.
Apart from using steroids in fairness creams, some of the most popular fairness creams are formulated using hydroquinone, another extremely harmful ingredient. Hydroquinone has been banned in many countries but is still a part of some of the best fairness creams in many countries.
Hydroquinone is used in fairness creams because of its extraordinary bleaching properties, as shown by the advertising agencies. What is hidden from the people is that, this “amazing” hydroquinone can thin out the skin layers and make it prone to skin cancer and furthermore kidney and liver damage. Constant use of this product can cause the skin to become extremely sensitive and hence susceptible to more damage.
Fairness creams also have mercury, parabens and other preservatives in it which are again some of the ingredients that you will never want on your skin owing to their toxic and harmful nature. These chemicals are not only harmful to the skin but can also cause serious health issues.
Attracted by the amazing smell of the cream? The sole purpose of adding this fragrance is to entice and appeal to the customers. It has no skin benefit; in fact, it can cause irritation on the skin.
Some of the active local governments have started campaigns to create awareness among the people regarding fairness creams. They are advising the people to avoid using these fairness creams even the most popular fairness creams at all costs. This, in fact, is a great initiative by the governments to save the people from the danger they are exposing themselves to, most of the time deliberately.
Here Are The Damages of Skin Whitening Creams:
These most popular skin whitening creams also makes pimples and skin spots either after a day or after years.
Some of the skin whitening creams make dark spots on face or they may change the skin color.
You all have popularly known that it is never too late. So, yes, you are still not late to save yourself.
Immediately discard off all fairness creams that you have purchased just because you liked the smell or the packaging or if you just wanted to get fairer.
Try to avoid using cheap creams or creams that have not mentioned their composition. Always consult a dermatologist before using any cream.
Know that, the actual beauty lies within you and your skin color cannot define your beauty. Even then, if you want to get fairer, try opting for natural remedies.
