Skin Whitener FAQ

Q: Why should I use a Skin Whitener?

Your skin is the first thing people notice about you. Dull, uneven skin attracts attention in all the wrong ways. A quality Skin Whitener can gently help your skin become brighter and more radiant, making sure people notice your skin for the right reasons.

Q: Do they all work?

Sadly, no. There are many Skin Whitener made from ingredients that have not been proven to have any effect on skin tone or dullness. When purchasing a Skin Whitener, you should be sure and do your homework to make sure you get one that will deliver on its promises.

Q: What should I look for?

There are three main compounds that have been shown to promote clear, porcelain skin. These are Alpha Arbutin, which helps break up pigment in the skin; Octadecendioic Acid, which contributes to decreasing the amount of melanin in the skin; and Citrus Unshiu Peel Extract, which can help reduce the intensity of dark spots.

Q: Are there things I should watch out for?

Yes, definitely. The two main problem ingredients you might encounter in Skin Whitener are hydroquinone and mercury.

Hydroquinone has been linked to a host of diseases, including cancer, and has been banned in Europe and USA (though not the India).

Mercury, or mercury salts, are used because they are cheaper than safer alternatives. However, they can destroy your kidneys and nervous system, so beware.

Q: How do I use them?

Most Skin Whitener are best applied at night, before bed. The sun can activate some of the compounds in most skin brighteners, leading to irritation. To apply, put a dime-sized amount on your fingertips and rub over your entire face, being sure to massage in upwards circles.

Q: How long does it take?

Everyone reacts differently, but if you have a quality Skin Whitener, you may start to see results in a few weeks.

Q: How will I know it’s working?

We recommend taking a picture before you start, then update the pictures every other week or so. This should give you a clear idea of the changes.

Q: Do I need a prescription?

Some spot correctors are available by prescription only. However, advances in technology have created over-the-counter options that can offer great results at a fraction of the cost.

Also, many of the prescription products use hydroquinone, so chances are you'll actually be safer with an over-the-counter option.

Q: Speaking of cost, how much should I expect to pay?

The cost of products varies greatly, with many costing upwards of Rs.10,000 for a small amount. However, there are some excellent options currently available for less than Rs.2000.

Q: Are the effects permanent? What happens if I stop using it?

Your skin is a living, changing organ, so there's no way to "permanently" brighten your skin without using highly damaging bleaching techniques. If you discontinue use of a Skin Whitener, you'll likely see your skin tone revert to previous levels.

Also, most Skin Whitener work by helping to prevent the melanin in dark spots from appearing, rather than eliminating it completely. So, if you stop using your spot corrector, you'll likely see your dark spots and natural skin tone reappear.

Q: What’s the best product to use?

Different people will find different results with different products. However, we’ve found we got the best results from Radyance Skin Whiteing Serum, as it made our skin brighter and more luminous than other products we tried, and at a cost that was very reasonable.

Experiment and see which product works best for you, but we’re confident that Radyance Skin Whitening Serum offers the best results at the fairest price.
