From Black To White?

skinExcuse the title pun. You’ll see why in a moment.

But I’ve been talking about the benefits of chocolate, now I just wanted to talk briefly about skin and lightening products.

These products do cause a lot of controversy (that’s what I was reading today), but personally I don’t see the problem. I don’t like the idea of people wanting to change their ethnicity, but that isn’t what this is about really is it?

The way I understand these skin whitening products is that they simply lighten (or even just brighten) your overall skin tone. They certainly won’t change a black person into a white person. It is possible to change skin from black to white, but it takes some pretty serious specialist chemical treatments that you just cannot buy from a drug store! I don’t support that at all but that is not what this is anyway.

So I don’t really have a problem with products like those at whiteningcreamreviews .com because they don’t do what people dislike these products for. They are also useful for people who want to get rid of marks, blemishes or other weird pigmentation things that afflict us sometimes. Like all cosmetic products you need to be careful how you use them of course (watch out for these mistakes), but if you read the instructions and be sensible I really can’t see any harm.

I mean, these products are being used as a face whitening cream for men too, and men are usually way more cautious than women about stuff like this. Men are also far less likely to be convinced they need anything cosmetic anyway of course, which is why men generally don’t spend hours a week putting makeup on.

I used to be more on the fence about products like this, but I guess I’ve finally fallen off on the side of “if you want to use it, then that’s fine with me”. I wouldn’t stop anyone using a whitening cream – so long as they had done their research, chosen a product that was as safe as possible and thought through how they were going to use it.

What do you guys think?
