How To Get Lighter and Even Skin! The Healthy Way
There are plenty of products that promise lighter skin. Many of these products produce the results, but at what cost?
Hydroquinone, before it was banned, was the number one go-to product for lightening skin. Hydroquinone was found to be possibly toxic to melanocytes, the pigment-producing cells in the skin. Many other products are harmful to the human body. It is time that we stop harming our skin and our bodies just to look and feel beautiful. Here are some tips on how to get lighter and even skin, the healthy way.
Vitamin C can actually lighten your skin! Taking Vitamin C supplements raises glutathione levels in your body. Scientists have found out that the way our skin balances between its lighter and darker pigments depends on glutathione. Not only does this help lighten skin but you are also adding the essential vitamins your body needs. Vitamin C has also been known to cause a domino effect on other vitamins; while increasing glutathione, it also increases vitamin E in our bodies.
Although these are commonly repeated suggestions, it is true that drinking lots of water can help with the appearance of your skin. Also, eating lots of fruits and vegetables contributes to a healthy glow. People often use Vitamin C rich citrus and apply it to their skin. Applying lemons and oranges to the skin and being consistent lightens and evens skin tone.
Vitamin E is known for making your skin retain moisture and elasticity, which makes your skin look younger. Using Vitamin E lotion or oil after washing your face, daily, will produce amazing results. Drinking lots of water and adding more fruits and vegetables in your diet is the best way to get healthier looking skin from the inside-out.
