Skin lightening is a method of reducing skin pigmentation. Most of the time, skin lightening is targeted, but sometimes lasers or surgery are also involved.
Understanding Skin Pigmentation
Generally speaking, a person’s skin color depends on melanin. Melanin is a pigment produced by melanocytes. Humans are born with a certain amount of melanin. In addition, it also determines the relative darkness or lightness of their skin tones. Environmental factors, especially sunlight exposure, cause melanocytes to produce more melanin. This can lead to very dull skin. In some cases, brown age spots may appear from this sunburn. After an injury, some areas of the skin may develop hyperpigmentation or excessive darkening, or it may be due to skin conditions such as acne. Or pregnancy hormone therapy may also stimulate melanocytes and cause hyperpigmentation called melasma. With this skin condition, brown patches may appear on the face.
How to whiten?

This will protect our skin from the sun. After basic skin care, go out and apply a layer of sunscreen to effectively protect our skin. The damage caused by ultraviolet rays, the sun is not good, and whitening is useless.
2- Eat more natural foods and less pigments and over-processed things. Kiwi, cherry tomatoes, oranges, cherries, apples, grapes, papaya, oranges and other fruits can be eaten a little every day to supplement the body’s vitamins and other nutrients.

3- Drinking a glass of honey water every day is good for the skin. Antioxidants can improve bodily functions. But girls who are allergic to honey should avoid it. If you have nothing to do at home, you can buy some fresh lemon jar honey and make your own honey tea. Remember, you can’t go out in the sun after drinking lemon honey water, otherwise it will backfire. Must drink at night for whitening effect. Drinking it during the day will only turn it dark because lemons absorb light.
4-Drink more warm water. It is right to drink more water. It can promote detoxification of the body, prevent dull and yellowish complexion, promote metabolism, and help the skin to become whiter and better.
5- Be careful with cosmetics. It is best not to use hormone-containing whitening. Although it feels very white after use, once you stop using it, the skin will immediately become worse and more difficult to repair.
6- Sleep well, don’t stay up late, don’t watch too many bright things. Going to bed early and getting up early is also good for the skin, and nap beauty is also a good choice.
