Sun damage is something that occurs over the years and that happens to both men and women.  If you played outdoor sports in your youth, once enjoyed hiking and swimming outdoors, enjoy triathlons or marathons, then you too can benefit from using an organic skin lightening cream.  Melasma can sometimes also be caused by excessive exposure to the sun, just as much as it can be a result of overactive hormones.  A skin lightening cream can help you to have an even skin tone, free of the sun damage that you never thought that you could get rid of and even allow you to go makeup free.

Everyone has breakouts and acne at some point in their life, whether you did when you were a teenager and still have left over dark acne scars, or you have adult acne and still struggle with breakouts and acne scars, skin lightening creams can help you.  

**Fun fact**  Did you know that some people suffer from acne on specific parts of the body?  Ever heard of "backne"?  The back is a part of the body that can suffer from breakouts, and as a result have several dark spots and marks.  Skin lightening creams and lotions for the body can get rid of ugly dark acne scars on the body and  you'll be ready to show off that even toned skin in a swim suit in no time.

Acne scars can be a pain to cover up, and sometimes leads to feeling insecure about your skin without using tons of makeup and concealer to hide it.  Instead of needing makeup to cover ugly dark spots as a result of acne, why not have glowing, even skin underneath your makeup that you can showcase with only a bit of lipgloss or powder if you feel up to it.  Having to wear a full face of makeup to hide hyperpigmentation just to make a fast run to the supermarket or run a quick chore is no fun.  Get rid of the dark spots and hyperpigmentation and finally feel free to go out without the added pressure of applying makeup.

How to Use Skin Lightening Creams

Most skin lightening creams are to be used twice daily after cleansing the skin thoroughly and exfoliating using a quality facial scrub or cleanser to remove any dead skin cells from the surface of the skin.  Making sure that the skin is free of any dead skin cells ensures that the product penetrates the top layer of skin, and gets deeper down where it can work better to lighten the hyperpigmenation.  During and after using skin lightening creams it is important to use sun protection and protect your skin from the damaging rays of the sun.  While using these products sun protection is important because after lightening and exfoliating the skin it is very vulnerable to tanning and becoming even darker than it was before applying skin lightening products.  Even after apply a good spf or 15 or above and reapplying it every 2 hours it is still imperative that you stay out of the sun for long periods of time to avoid tanning and to keep the skin healthy.
