Skin whitening, skin lightening, and skin bleaching refer to the practice of using chemical substances in an attempt to lighten skin tone or provide an even skin complexion by lessening the concentration of melanin. Several chemicals have been shown to be effective in skin whitening, while some have proved to be toxic or have questionable safety profiles, adding to the controversy surrounding their use and impacts on certain ethnic groups.
Lemon, honey and skin whitening products work. Korean brands are best for skin whitening but honey and lemon is more natural. Just literally mix some honey and lemon and apply it onto your face a few times. Sunscreen doesn't help with the color of your skin unlike popular belief. However it is very important and protects your skin from the increasing radiation hitting our skin. If you whiten your skin, be sure to wear sunscreen all the time or you could get skin cancer, premature aging and spots.
