Skin lightening cream is fast becoming one of the most sought after skin care products in the world. The 20th century was the century of the sun tan, and particularly in the early sixties, every young person’s fashion desire was to have that sun kissed look. But things are changing radically, and white skin is becoming the new fashion image of the early 21st century.
In part this is due to the growing awareness of the damage that too much exposure to the Sun’s ultra violet rays can cause, not just sunburn, but skin cancer. Fuelled by this growing awareness, the alabaster skin look of yesteryear is right back in vogue.
But for some, this can pose a huge problem for fashion conscious young women, (although age is of course no barrier to fashion), especially those who have a darker complexion but who still hanker after the china doll look. Up until recently, anyone with a darker skin tone had no other recourse than to bleach their skins to try and achieve a lightening effect. I think we’re all aware of the trials and tribulations that a young Michael Jackson went through during his transformation.
Skin bleaching can be quite dangerous and can have quite serious side effects, so it is not something that should be undertaken lightly, (excuse the pun). Earlier skin bleaches contained mercury and were considered to be quite hazardous due to the potential build up of this toxic substance.
Sun pigmentation, or tanning, is brought about by a substance called melanin. The production of Melanin is actually stimulated by UV, and it is this stimulated level of Melanin that results in a sun tan. Most of the skin lightening cream are therefore designed to block melanin production. However, depending on the product that you use, and the ingredients it contains, some may cause an unpleasant skin irritation.
However, the exciting news is that there is a new kid on the block in terms of a whitening agent. It is called Extrapone Nutgrass and it is a 100% natural melanin inhibitor, and one particular skin care product manufacturer is now incorporating this substance into its skin whitening product. Extrapone Nutgrass has actually been proven in recent clinical tests to reduce the quantity of melanin by as much as a whopping great 40%, and it is perfectly harmless to use.
The ground breaking new skin pigment lightening solution is called “Whitening Day Cream” and is marketed by a company called Xtend-life. Not only will it lighten the tone of your skin in a wholly natural way, but it also nourishes your skin at the same time. Xtend-life also markets a product called “Age Defense Active Day Cream”, which has been specially formulated as an effective anti-aging cream. It contains several unique ingredients including Xtend-TK, a powerful, but 100% natural substance that stimulates collagen and elastin production. This enhances your skin’s elasticity and depth, making it just like a younger person’s skin.
So if your aim is to achieve a lighter skin tone you will actually get a double benefit by using Xtend-Life’s Whitening Day Cream, their boundary breaking skin lightening cream. Not only will you achieve a lighter skin tone in a safe and 100% natural way, you’ll also regenerate a younger looking skin too. Surely that’s just too good an opportunity to pass up?
