The Top 5 Best Skin Whitening Creams of 2014
Warning: It is important to point out that in the process of making creams and ointments that can supposedly whiten a person’s face, sometimes harmful and carcinogenic type chemical compounds have been added as an ingredient into the creams. Please be sure to read the labels and the ingredients in the creams first and understand all of the possible negative side effects before ever deciding to try them out. One of the most common ingredients in traditional older products of skin whitening products was to use Sodium Hypochloride. It is chemically shortened to NaClO. NaClO when mixed in normal water turns into what is commonly known as bleach. The 2nd well known whitening agent is what is found in the Teeth Whitening agent the dentist uses, called Carbamide peroxide. When you put that into the mouth, it breaks down into Hydrogen Peroxide. It is actually hydrogen peroxide which is the real whitening agent in teeth.
I realize that it is now the year 2014 and we as a human race should stop getting hung up on the fact that we all have different skin colors, but it seems like that somehow many people still seem to really care about changing the color of their skin. In general, most cultures around the world are trying to make their skins lighter, not darker. In the same way, if you ask most people and most cultures around the world whether they want to either be taller or shorter, most people would say that they wish to be taller. I personally don’t know whether people are just interested in trying to look more “European” aka “White” but there is a sort of concensus among the South Asian community, the East Asian Community, the Southeast Asian community, the Middle Eastern community, and even among the African American community that having lighter colored skin is better than darker colored skin.
I personally don’t just people on whatever they wish to do with their life, and if they want to do something to their body which they think makes them look more beautiful, I say “Go ahead”, as long as the procedure or product they are planning to use does not harm them.
