How safe is your fairness cream
Fairness creams are the new rage in the market these days. In fact, with the drop in mercury, people all over the world are resorting to fairness creams to keep their skin soft and glowing.
But if you are an avid user of fairness creams have you ever stopped to think about the effects of the product on your skin? And have you wondered whether they actually help your skin or do they harm it?
Doctors these days actually ask people not to use the skin care products which are available in the market. One of the major reasons is because of the use of mercury in these products. In fact, one of the most important ingredients which are found in the skin lightening creams these days is mercury.
Doctors all over the world are warning people to stop using creams which contain mercury because of the damage that can occur to your sensitive skin. One of the main problems which are caused by mercury is kidney damage. It even causes damage to the nervous system of the body. Here are a few tips before you actually buy a skin cream.
- Don't pick up the bottle which looks the best or don't go for the most expensive. Make sure that you check and find out what the ingredients are. Make sure that you find ingredients which are familiar to you and ones which your dermatologist recommends.
- Test out the product before you start using it on a daily basis. The best way to do this would be to try out the product on a small patch on your skin. If you don't see any ill effects in a few weeks, you can continue using it.
- Creams which say that they are absolutely natural and contain no chemicals are usually the ones which actually do contain a lot of them. So make sure that you check the label completely before you buy it. Buy the creams which have a hundred percent herbal ingredients. This way you can be sure that it won't do any harm to your skin.
- Instead of using fairness skins you can switch over to sunscreens and moisturizers. These are good for your skin and they don't usually contain mercury or the harmful products. They might not have the perfect effects you want, but in the long term they help to save your skin and prevent any side effects from taking place.
