Most of us commit certain skin whitening mistakes. In an attempt to whiten the skin, we tend to ignore certain precautions and this may do more harm than good to the skin.

The Right Way To Use Facial Cleansers

Well, what are those skin care mistakes? Let us discuss about them in this post.

Before that, remember that following your daily skin care routine and some home remedies help your skin more than any skin whitening product.

Easy Ways To Remove Dark Circles

Instead of committing mistakes in skin care, if you focus on enriching your skin with nutrients and keeping it clean, you might not even need any whitening program in the first place. Beauty is about healthy skin than anything else.


Mistake #1

Stay away from some lotions and creams that contain mercury as an ingredient. Such products do more harm than good. When in doubt, consult your dermatologist instead of taking the liberty.


Mistake #2

Without proper hydration, all your skin whitening programs are useless. Drink sufficient water to keep your skin healthy.


Mistake #3

When it comes to using whitening creams, never use one unless your dermatologist prescribes it for you. Using something that is not meant for your skin could be dangerous.


Mistake #4

Without your weekly exfoliation process, your skin whitening program may fail to show any results as exfoliation can naturally lighten your skin by removing dead skin cells.


Mistake #5

Remember that without applying a sunscreen lotion, your skin whitening routine isn't complete.


Mistake #6

Without having any knowledge about ingredients of a product, using it on your skin would be a grave mistake.


Mistake #7

Never try any cream on your whole body without testing it on your wrist. Patch tests tell you how your body is going to react.
