Skin Lightening Cream for African Americans

African American skin tones range from light skin to dark skin tones.  The uneven distribution of the pigment producing our skin colour can lead to uneven skin colouring or a darker pigment than we would like to have.  Whilst we have little control over our skin tones, products are available on the market to both even out and lighten the colour of our skin.  These creams are considered increasingly safe to use and provide almost immediate visible changes to those areas we are not satisfied with and would like to change.

What is Skin Lightening Cream for African Americans?

Skin lightening creams are creams that are applied to small or large areas of the skin surface and which interfere with the processes involved in our skin that produce pigmentation.  They may create increased sensitivity to the sun whilst in use, but they are an increasingly popular method of lightening the skin safely.

The skin naturally renews itself every month and skin lightening creams are created to produce a lighter complexion with each month of use by inhibiting the production of melanin (the pigment produced in the skin responsible for our skin colour).  DNA and genetics are responsible for the production of melanin and darker skinned people such as African Americans typically produce greater amounts of the pigment.

Exposure to the sun also increases the amount of pigment produced and this can often lead to an uneven production of the pigment.  Exposed areas may have darker skin than those typically covered by clothing.  Skin lightening creams can reduce this uneven skin colouration when used as directed along with sun tan lotions and exfoliating products.

How to Use Skin Lightening Cream for African Americans

Skin Lightening Creams are very simple to apply and to use.  Exfoliate the skin prior to use and ensure the skin is clean.  Most creams are applied twice daily, generally in the morning and evening.  It is highly recommended to wait for ten minutes after the application of the creams before applying make-up or sun tan lotion.

Where Can I Find Skin Lightening Creams for African Americans?

Natural skin lightening can be achieved safely by using products such as:

  • Aloe Vera which originated in Africa and which has natural skin lightening properties.  Whilst this product will not produce a highly obvious lightening of the skin it is very useful for evening skin tones and producing a slight lightening of the skin.  It can be bought in health food shops throughout the UK.
  • Cocoa Butter is an excellent product for evening skin tones and discolouration’s.  It was originally produced in West Africa and is also an effective skin moisturiser.  It is often available in department stores, pharmacies and in beauty shops.
  • African Black Soap is also an effective naturally occurring product exported from Africa.  It is an excellent and safe product for evening skin tones and reducing hyper pigmentation.  It can be bought in health shops and African beauty shops throughout the country.

Commercial skin lightening creams for African Americans are also available for purchase in department stores throughout the UK.  It is wise to research products before use to make sure you know the ingredients they contain.  Skin lightening creams usually take around six months to have a noticeable effect so you are advised not to try any harsher alternatives until then.
